Scalp Cooling vs Cold Capping

Facing chemotherapy is daunting, and one of the most emotionally distressing side effects is hair loss. However, amidst this adversity, there’s a solution — scalp cooling.  Many patients want to understand the differences between Scalp Cooling vs Cold Capping.  In comparison to traditional cold capping methods, scalp cooling is the superior alternative. Its precision, user-friendly design, efficiency in preserving hair follicles, adaptability, and reduced reliance on external assistance makes it a groundbreaking solution for individuals seeking a more comfortable and effective approach to maintaining their identity during chemotherapy. Scalp cooling is not just a solution, but a beacon of hope for a future where the impact of chemotherapy on one’s appearance is minimized, and dignity is preserved.


Precision Cooling with Amma™

Unlike cold caps, which rely on manual application and replacement, our Amma™ scalp cooling system is designed for precision and consistency. Amma’s advanced system maintains a controlled temperature throughout the chemotherapy session, ensuring optimal protection for hair follicles.


A User-Friendly Experience

Amma ™ is a user-friendly and hassle-free experience for patients. With automated temperature control, individuals can focus on their treatment without the need for constant cap replacement every 20 to 30 minutes. This not only reduces the burden on patients but also allows for a more seamless integration of the scalp cooling process into their chemotherapy sessions.


Efficiency in Preserving Hair Follicles

The precision and constant temperature maintenance of Amma’s scalp cooling system contributes significantly to the effectiveness in preserving hair follicles. By minimizing blood flow to the scalp consistently, Amma™ creates a protective barrier against the impact of chemotherapy drugs, reducing the likelihood of hair loss.


Reduced Reliance on External Assistance

Unlike cold caps, which often require the assistance of a friend, family member, or hired “capper” to replace them during each session, Amma’s™ system operates autonomously. This reduces the need for constant external assistance, empowering patients to manage their scalp cooling experience more independently and with greater confidence.


Investing in Future Comfort

Scalp cooling represents an important step toward the future of cancer care. By choosing scalp cooling over traditional cold capping, individuals not only enhance their immediate treatment experience but also invest in the preservation of their emotional well-being and overall quality of life during and after treatment.
