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 accompanying care with Thymuskin accelerates the regeneration process and supports sustainable, even and natural hair growth.
In most cases, total hair loss is experienced approximately 3-5 weeks after the first chemotherapy. However, milder courses are ideally characterized by moderate hair loss.
Course with THYMUSKIN® application
6-month chemotherapy for breast cancer (mamma carcinoma). Start of care with Thymuskin Forte Shampoo & Serum 6 weeks after start with chemotherapy. New hair regrowth already visible during chemotherapy after 5 month.
Care with THYMUSKIN®
The patented active ingredient complex GKL-02 contained in Thymuskin consists of non-animal thymic peptides.
The biological activity of Thymuskin is particularly evident in the activation of the hair cells (keratinocytes), which have a decisive influence on the growth of the hair. Hair formation is stimulated.
Selection & Application
In the case of baldness or with cases where only a few patches of hair are left, we recommend using Thymuskin Classic Shampoo in combination with Thymuskin Forte Serum Gel.
Thymuskin Classic Shampoo & Serum for universal use are also suitable for preventive use or in the case of low-dose chemotherapy.
Use until the hair has regrown evenly and in its natural structure.
Bald areas should also be cleaned and prepared with Thymuskin Shampoo before using Thymuskin Serum.
The psychological effect is still often underestimated today.
There is a growing number of affected women, especially in breast cancer. You can also find some reports on this in the customer voices.
