What is WaterJel R1/ R2? 
WaterJel R1/R2 is a Unique, 2 step approach that prevents and helps bring real relief during radiation treatment & helps reduce radiation dermatitis.
To help make your skin feel more comfortable during and after radiation treatment, your medical team may recommend you to use WaterJel R1/R2. This  two-step treatment that cools, soothes, relieves pain, hydrates, reduces inflammation and helps skin regenerate and ultimately keep skin healthy.

How Does It Work? 
The first step in the treatment is R1 Cooling Gel. The second step is R2 Moisturising Lotion. Waterjel can only be used in the treatment of radiation dermatitis and burns associated with radiation.

What happens to your skin before and after radiation treatment ?
Radiation treatment uses high energy rays like x-rays to treat disease inside your body. But to get to the right place, these rays have to pass through your skin. As they do so, they heat the skin and attack healthy skin cells, which break down and die. This may make your skin sore, leading to dryness, itching or peeling. If your skin gets too sore, it may delay your next treatment. Skin repairs itself quite quickly, but if you are having treatment almost every day, your skin cells simply do not have enough time to grow back between treatments.

Why was WaterJel R1/R2 developed?
Water-Jel Technologies, who have developed and manufacture WaterJel R1/R2, are world experts in the treatment of thermal burns. WaterJel R1/R2 is their answer to the problem of treating the side effects which can occur on the skin during and after radiation treatment.

How to use WaterJel R1/R2?
Water-Jel Technologies, developed WaterJel R1/R2 as two distinct parts in the treatment of Radiation dermatitis & Radiation burns.Both Parts are packaged together in the WaterJel R1/R2 weekly treatment pack.

Step 1 - R1 The Blue sachet - For use directly after treatment and will cool the affected area.
Do not rub in vigorously, rather allow the gel to sit on top of the effected area and minimise contact with hands. Once treatment stops , R1 stops. 

Step 1 - R2 The White sachet - For use 3 time a day after R1 has been applied.Again Do not vigorously rub in, Rather apply softly, much like you would apply hand cream. R2 will continue to be applied for up to 1-2 weeks after treatment has stopped.
