The Radiaderm™ Advanced Skincare System is an easy-to-use two-step System that promotes the healing, relief and protection to dry cracked, chafed or burned skin.

How Does R1 Cooling Gel Work?
Provides immediate relief: cools the skin, helps relieve discomfort and irritation, soothes burns and provides intense hydration. It contains a milk-based protein that benefits the skin’s appearance by making it feel smooth and soft. Encourages the skin’s natural defense system to help resist damaging skin effects that occur.

Use immediately after treatment. Apply a generous layer to the affected or treatment area daily. Do not rub into skin. The gel is most effective when applied in a thick layer and allowed to remain in contact with the skin for a minimum of 20 minutes. A slight tingling may occur. Any residue may be gently removed.

How Does R2 Skin Protectant Lotion Work?
Moisturizes and protects irritated and dry, cracked skin. It is pH balanced and nourishes, smooths and softens skin and promotes skin elasticity. It also contains dimethicone, which moisturizes, lubricates and seals in the moisture, helping to decrease itching and flaking.

Directions: Apply to skin as needed two to four times daily. R2 Skin Protectant Lotion is also sold separately so that you can continue to moisturize, protect and nurture your skin posttreatment. Repeat two-step system cycle each day.

I Schedule My Radiation Treatments Around My Work Schedule and Don’t have 20 Minutes Immediately Following Radiation Therapy to Apply R1 Cooling Gel. What Should I do?
If you can’t apply it immediately following your radiation treatment, apply R1 Cooling Gel as soon as you have a short block of time in which you can leave the irradiated area uncovered (minimum of 20 minutes). It will provide extra hydration to help strengthen skin cells. And, as you go through your treatment, it will also help soothe and relieve the discomfort from radiation burns and any skin changes that may occur.

Do I Have to Wait a Certain Amount of Time to Apply R2 Skin Protectant Lotion after I Have Finished Applying R1 Cooling Gel?
After you have thickly applied R1 for a minimum of 20 minutes, gently wipe or rinse off any residual product that has not been absorbed. Then, if you prefer, you can immediately apply R2. The R2 can be used as needed throughout the day and night.
