Hair loss through chemo­therapy

Hair loss through chemotherapy, also called Alopecia Medicamentosa. The cytostatic drugs administered during chemotherapy result in the loss of head hair (mostly reversible).

Medication can prevent the growth of hair roots.

Cytostatic drugs are a group of drugs that inhibit cell growth or cell division and, as a side effect, influence the activity of the hair follicles.

Normally, the hair that has fallen out (usually baldness) grows back on its own about 3 months after the end of chemotherapy. However, more and more often there is a persistent hair growth disorder.

Hair roots are attacked

Today, however, stronger chemotherapies are predominantly used, so that hair loss often cannot be avoided. As a result, growth disorders occur more and more frequently. The hair grows back irregularly, only in places or diffusely. Many of those affected suffer from the growth disorders for years after the chemotherapy.

The use of Thymuskin accelerates the regeneration process and supports sustainable, even and natural hair growth.
