Breast Cancer Awareness Month may only be an annual observance but it is very near and dear to our hearts here at The Hair Specialists. Every year we have the privilege of helping thousands of women as they battle and recover from breast cancer. It is our honor to help restore a sense of normalcy in these women’s lives as they bravely face this disease.
Chemotherapy & Hair Loss
First developed in the early 1900’s, the term chemotherapy refers to the use of chemicals to treat infectious diseases. Today chemotherapy is used to treat a wide variety of cancers, including breast cancer. Intended to attack and kill dangerous cancer cells, chemotherapy also attacks healthy cells. Some of the most commonly affected cells in the human body are those responsible for the growth of hair and nails. Most chemotherapy patients experience complete hair loss, many of whom choose to shave their hair before going through the painful process of slow hair loss. Fortunately, chemo related hair loss is typically temporary. Regrowth often begins within months of a patient’s final chemotherapy treatment.
Breast Cancer & Hair Replacement
Chances are you or someone you love has been directly impacted by breast cancer. In fact, according to the American Cancer Society, one in eight women will develop breast cancer at one time or another. One of the most obvious and painful side effects of breast cancer treatment is the loss of one’s hair. This dangerous disease leaves most victims longing for the normalcy they enjoyed prior to diagnosis. At the Hair Specialist we are honored to be the leading providers of Lincoln breast cancer hair replacement and restoration services. We proudly help men and women throughout their battle, providing hair replacement systems, also known as wigs and toupees, and hair restoration therapy once chemotherapy is complete.
If you or someone you love is living with breast cancer, we encourage you to contact us. Learn how our team of compassionate, experienced hair replacement and restoration experts can help.
If you have not yet begun chemotherapy, we encourage you to make an appointment. One of our hair system experts will meet with you in order to customize a wig that looks and feels just like your natural hair. If you have already lost your hair, our experts will create a wig or a toupee that exceeds your expectations. Once treatment has commenced, we will be here to help you with your hair regrowth plan. Our experts can design a treatment plan that will help you regrow your own hair faster than you ever thought possible. Contact us today to learn more!
