Scalp Cooling Now Available

Men and women receiving chemotherapy treatment for certain cancers at Coborn Cancer Center can now keep control of their hair loss by using a ground-breaking scalp cooling treatment. 

The Paxman Scalp Cooling System helps reduce hair loss throughout chemotherapy. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared the Paxman Scalp Cooling System in early 2017 for breast cancer patients; in 2018 the FDA expanded the clearance for use in all solid tumor cancer patients.

SO, WHAT IS SCALP COOLING?

Chemotherapy works by targeting all rapidly dividing cells in the body. Hair is the second fastest dividing cell, and this is the reason why many chemotherapy drugs cause alopecia. The hair follicles in the growth phase are attacked, resulting in hair loss approximately two weeks after the commencement of the chemotherapy treatment. The damage chemotherapy causes to the hair follicle can be alleviated by using the scalp cooling treatment, It works by reducing the temperature of the scalp by a few degrees immediately before, during and after the administration of chemotherapy.

THE NEXT STEPS

Patients interested in the scalp cooling system should discuss it with their cancer care provider. Your cancer care team can advise you if scalp cooling is likely to be successful with your chemotherapy treatment.  For anyone who wants to go ahead with scalp cooling, www.PaxmanUSA.com features an online resource area designed to make the whole process as easy as possible.
