Radiation therapy can destroy cancer cells with precise targeting, and spare healthy, normal tissue while preserving function and cosmetic appearance. Radiation can also be effective in treating pre-cancerous skin lesions that can give rise to new non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC).
At GenesisCare, we strive to achieve the best possible quality of life outcomes for our patients. We have utilized our global network of clinicians and scientists, as the world’s largest provider of radiation services, to develop Skinviva™, our branded program for the simultaneous management of locally advanced non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) and surrounding pre-cancerous skin (often associated with extensive sun damage) utilizing modern radiation techniques.
How is Skinviva different?
After Skinviva™, Brett got his confidence back and was excited to start living his life again.
After a lifetime of enjoying the Australian sun, 55-year-old Brett was diagnosed with multiple NMSCs, as well as pre-cancerous areas on his skin. Over the past 25 years, he had undergone several treatments including topical therapies and surgery, but these were invasive, ineffective, or the results were short lived.
After reviewing additional options, Brett learned about Skinviva at GenesisCare. Watch the video to learn about Brett’s personal experience.
As with any treatment, individual results will vary. Be sure to talk with your healthcare provider about whether Skinviva is a viable option for you.

Skinviva is a GenesisCare branded program developed to simultaneously treat confirmed non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC), as well as the surrounding pre-cancerous skin (often associated with sun damage) utilizing modern radiation techniques. You may be an ideal candidate for Skinviva if:
- You have newly diagnosed, persistent or recurrent NMSC on irregularly shaped body regions, with surrounding precancerous skin changes (often revealed as reddened, thickened or lumpy skin).
- Your NMSC is in an area not conducive to surgery, or where surgery might produce unsatisfactory functional outcomes.
