Chemotherapy Hair Loss Treatment St. Louis, MO

What Causes Hair Loss During Chemotherapy Treatment?

One of the many unfortunate side-effects of chemotherapy is hair loss. But what causes the hair to fall out in the first place? Because chemotherapy targets all rapidly dividing cells in the body, healthy cells are attacked in addition to cancerous cells. Hair follicles, being some of the fastest-dividing healthy cells in the body, become a casualty of the blanket-nature of chemotherapy treatments.

 

Chemotherapy hair loss may be gradual or dramatic: clumps in a hairbrush, handfuls in the shower, or on your pillow when you wake up. The extent of the hair loss depends on which drugs are being used, and the duration of their cycles.

 

Regardless of the extent of the damage to your hair, we offer a wide variety chemotherapy hair loss treatment options for both men and women. Let the Hans Wiemann Treatment Center help you through this difficult time and find the best chemotherapy hair loss treatment.
