What is Cold Cap Therapy
Cold capping or scalp cooling is a drug-free and non-invasive treatment that helps people reduce hair loss from chemotherapy.
Unless you’ve undergone chemo, you’re unlikely to have come across cold capping – and even if you’ve had chemo, chances are you still weren’t told about it. In the past, your medical team was probably more focused on healing you rather than how you looked.
However, the medical world is slowly coming around to the fact that our personal appearance has a massive impact on how we feel and how quickly we recover. More and more oncologists are recommending cold capping as a vital part of cancer treatment. In fact, 57% of Penguin patients have been referred by their doctor.
