How does SRT work?

The SRT-100™ delivers a precise dose of Superficial Radiation Therapy that only goes skin deep. This low-dose of Superficial Radiation safely destroys non-melanoma skin cancer or keloid cells. It does not damage healthy surrounding tissue. There is no cutting or stitching, less risk for infection, and no need for reconstructive plastic surgery to repair surgical scars.

Skin Cancer

Nearly four million people are diagnosed with basal and squamous cell carcinoma (non-melanoma skin cancer) each year in the United States.  This non-surgical treatment delivers a remarkable cure rate of 95% for non-melanoma skin cancer. Performed right in our office, each treatment is painless and only takes a few minutes. The SRT-100™can be used to treat lesions on the arms, legs, back, and trunk. It works especially well on skin cancers located on the head and neck where nearly 80 percent of all skin cancer occurs—especially along the fold of the nose, eyelids, lips, corner of the mouth and the lining of the ear. And because the treatment doesn’t require cutting, stitching or scarring, there’s no need for reconstructive plastic surgery after the treatment.

Keloid Scars

The SRT-100™ by Sensus Healthcare is giving countless keloid sufferers new hope and confidence. Whether you suffer from keloids caused by surgery, acne, chickenpox, piercing or burns, the SRT-100™ effectively destroys these non-malignant tumors caused by skin trauma. The SRT-100™ is also a good treatment option for individuals who are genetically prone to keloids—including African Americans, Latinos, and Asians. In fact, patients of all skin types who undergo quick and painless treatment with the SRT-100™ enjoy cure rates of 90 percent and higher.
