How Dr. Jill Waibel Helps Breast Cancer Patient Survivors

Written by

In October, we wear pink. October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the most common type of non-skin cancer amongst women in the United States. In fact, one in eight women in the United States will get breast cancer at some point in their life.

 

Many women with breast cancer will undergo a mastectomy, resulting in major scarring on the breasts. We are working closely with dermatologist Dr. Jill Waibel who explained that breast cancer survivor scars are one of the most common she sees on her patients. Dr. Waibel is passionate about helping these women get the treatment they deserve post-surgery and uses the Vbeam Prima, a pulsed dye laser device, to help treat these scars. After a recent study with the Vbeam Prima and cancer survivors with very red scars, Dr. Waibel saw that with as little as three treatments, the scars appeared much lighter and camouflaged.

 

The Vbeam Prima laser targets red blood vessels, drastically decreasing the appearance of the scar. More importantly, after treatment, these women no longer have to see the physical scars or have the daily reminder of their cancer battle.
