At a Glance: Cold cap system is designed to help reduce chemotherapy related hair loss by reducing the blood flow to the scalp.
Details: Some types of chemotherapy are associated with hair thinning and/or hair loss. The principle that is associated with the reduction and elimination of hair loss is called vaso-constriction. Essentially, this involves the use of super-cooled caps to constrict blood vessels in your scalp, thereby protecting your hair from damage.The cold caps which are filled with a soft gel are kept frozen until just before use. These are fitted to your head and held in place with Velcro fasteners.
The Arctic Cold Cap System is delivered directly to your door. You will need a family member or friend to help with the cold caps during chemotherapy administration.
