History of Elite Therapeutics

Dr. Kevin Schewe developed Elite Therapeutics with one mission in mind – healing his patients.

Based on the philosophy that beauty is health – which is only achieved via protection, prevention and reversal of skin damage – the Elite Therapeutics line of products exemplifies the mantra that serious science and cutting-edge ingredients are the true path to inner and outer beauty…all through physical healing.

The radiation and chemotherapy treatment regimens are toxic to tumors but also inflict collateral damage on normal tissues. As a result, most patients experience some level of skin and hair damage, and this can be extremely devastating to a patient’s psyche.

No matter the source of your skin care concern – whether it is illness, aging or lifestyle – Elite Therapeutics will radically improve your beauty and health connection.

REAL, VISIBLE RESULTS

Cancer patients participated in clinical testing of Elite Premier Crème towards the end of their radiation treatments. All participants had received a five to six week course of radiation therapy and had developed significant irritative skin reactions. They applied Elite Premier Crème four times daily towards the end of their treatments and had the following.

Before After Pictures

RADIATION

Radiation treatments are targeted to a particular area. Side effects are also specific to the area that is being treated.
• Skin can become red and irritated
• Some individuals experience skin burns in the treated area

When radiation therapy kills cancer cells, it also kills some nearby healthy cells. Skin in the targeted area may be:
• Irritated/Inflamed
• Dry
• Peeling
• Itchy or painful
• Sweat glands may be damaged, because the radiation penetrates deep into the skin. This adds to dry skin conditions.
• Hair Follicles can be damaged or destroyed

CHEMOTHERAPY

Chemotherapy drugs travel everywhere the blood does. There are newer drugs that are better at targeting.
• Attacks the fastest growing cells in the body (ie, the cancer)
• But the hair and skin cells are also fast growing cells
• This is why some individuals experience hair loss and damaged or sensitive skin
