CHEMOTHERAPY AND RADIOTHERAPY

Chemotherapy or radiotherapy?

Often 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 dying, 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.

WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT IT?

It is paramount to look after your scalp during treatments. Products that are too harsh or that contain too much fragrance are best avoided in favour of softer ones without residues.

Use the specifically formulated Térapo MédikTM products and solutions. They have been proven and tested for more than 40 years.

Alleviating the effects of your treatment? It’s possible!

  1. Ask your hair and scalp expert for a personal consultation

    Thanks to a comprehensive questionnaire and an in-depth hair and scalp analysis, he will have a thorough understanding of your needs and he’ll be able to recommend the specific Térapo MédikTM care and products best suited to your hair condition.

  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 Térapo MédikTM Well Being home Care Kit is specially designed so you can take care of your scalp yourself before, during and after chemotherapy or radiotherapy.

  3. Make a 60 day follow-up appointment after your treatments

    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 Térapo MédikTM centre.

Your home care routine

Products from the Térapo MédikTM range are made with 100% natural ingredients such as calendula oil, hydrolyzed cornstarch and an amino acid complex. Their soothing action calms the itching while stimulating the hair follicles and regulating the hair growth cycle.

Ask your Térapo MédikTM expert for a personal recommendation.
