The scalp cooling system is designed to reduce hair loss whilst receiving some types of chemotherapy. It is a system of cooling the scalp using a specially designed gel filled cap. It is fitted to the head prior to chemotherapy, during and up to four hours following completion of the treatment. Your medical oncologist will discuss this as an option for you. Not all forms of chemotherapy are suitable.
