CHEMOTHERAPY
AND RADIOTHERAPY


cap-sidebarOften a necessity in cancer treatments, chemotherapy and cranial radiotherapy reduce or stop cellular activity at the follicular level and in sebaceous glands. Hair will fall within days of starting the treatment. The scalp may become sensitive, irritated and dry during treatments. When these are over, hair will regrow. The hair cycle will start again, but the hair is still fragile and more at risk of being damaged by processes such as dyeing, perms and some hair care products. The amount of hair loss and the rate of re-growth are different for each individual. Every cancer therapy program is different and so is every patient.

Alleviating the effects of your treatment? We can!
Our 3-step personalized treatment plan based on the science of Trichology will help alleviate the effects of your treatment!

Step 1: ASK YOUR HAIR AND SCALP EXPERT FOR A PERSONAL CONSULTATION
Thanks to a comprehensive questionnaire and an in-depth hair and scalp
analysis, we will get a thorough understanding of your needs and be able to
recommend the specific Terapo Médik® care and products best suited to your
hair condition.


Step 2:THE WELL-BEING HOME CARE KIT
The activity of the sebaceous glands and papilla that sustain and nourish the
follicles decreases as a result of the therapy. Skin and scalp become thinner,
dryer and the hair eventually falls off. That’s why your body needs additional
hydration and nutrition from the very start of therapy. The Terapo Médik®
Well Being Home Care Kit is specially designed so you can take care of your
scalp yourself before, during and after chemotherapy or radiotherapy.


Step 3: MAKE A FOLLOW-UP APPOINTMENT 60 DAYS AFTER THERAPY
During this follow-up, your expert will recommend an exclusive hydration
bath. Specifically developed to calm the side effects of therapy, this relaxing
treatment is exclusively provided by your certified Capilia Head First center.
It has been proven and tested for more than 40 years.
