Ideal treatment for:

  • Actinic / solar keratoses (sun spots)
  • Prevention of squamous cell carcinoma
  • Pre-cancerous skin lesions
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Sun-aged skin

Rapid Solar Repair Therapy is a combination cream treatment which has been shown in rigorous research trials to be a highly effective treatment for solar keratoses (sun spots) and to substantially reduce the future development of squamous cell carcinomas.

Rapid Solar Repair Therapy is suitable for the scalp, face, chest, arms and legs. It specifically targets pre-cancerous cells and sun damaged skin, causing a skin reaction, but has limited effect on normal skin. Generally, skin with more sun-damage will have a more intense reaction.

Rapid Solar Repair Therapy results in healthier, smoother skin with a reduced risk of skin cancers in the future.

How it works

During your initial consultation with the doctor, you will receive a treatment pack which may include a pre-treatment cream to prepare your skin for 1-2 weeks prior to the start of the Rapid Solar Repair Therapy. The doctor will then prepare your skin in-centre and apply the first dose of the cream.

At home, you will continue to apply the cream for 4-6 days and send photos each day.

You will see the doctor after 2 and 8 weeks to assess your response and consider the need for further treatment.

It is very important that you use strict sun protection / avoid the sun for a week, and then use SPF50 sunscreen daily for life once healed.


Non-surgical treatment without scarring

Rapid Solar Repair Therapy is a non-surgical treatment option for sun spots, precancerous lesions and sun-damaged skin, achieving effective and safe results without scarring or the long downtime typically associated with surgical therapies.

Prevent skin cancers

Studies confirm that Rapid Solar Repair Therapy substantially reduces the future development of squamous cell carcinomas in the treated area, thereby reducing your skin cancer risk.

Clear, healthy skin

Since Rapid Solar Repair Therapy specifically targets damaged skin cells, healthy cells are left intact to reveal bright, smooth and healthy skin.
