The Paxman Scalp Cooling System has been developed by the Paxman family to reduce hair loss in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. The system’s concept came when mother of four, Sue Paxman, experienced the trauma of chemotherapy-induced hair loss. As the leading expert and supplier, Paxman’s pioneering system has helped thousands of people worldwide.
No matter where a person lives, Chemotherapy Induced Alopecia (CIA) compromises quality of life, can negatively impact on body-image and deprive patients of their privacy. The prospect of CIA can cause patients to refuse treatment. Scalp cooling is a proven and effective way of combatting CIA, resulting in a high level of hair retention or complete preservation. For patients, this means the opportunity to regain some control, maintain privacy and encourage a positive attitude towards treatment.
Investing in scientific testing and development has allowed Paxman to attain the highest levels of technical precision and clinical efficacy of our cold cap.
