    The DigniCap Scalp Cooling System offers patients the ability to reduce hair loss from certain chemotherapy treatments. A person’s hair can be a major part of their identity, and many patients rate hair loss as one of the most devastating side effects of chemo treatment. FDA cleared since 2015, DigniCap has been used successfully by thousands of patients worldwide to maintain privacy, self-esteem and control.

    Scalp cooling, also known as cold capping, is a proven approach to minimize hair loss during chemo. Reduced temperature results in a decreased blood flow to the scalp area so that less chemotherapy reaches the hair cells. Therefore, hair cells are not exposed to the full dose of chemo and may be able to survive the treatment. As a result, hair is less likely to fall out.

    DigniCap is manufactured by Dignitana, a Swedish company with a mission to provide cancer patients with dignity and control during a very challenging time. Dignitana works directly with both clinicians and patients to provide an innovative medical device in combination with expertise, education and support throughout the scalp cooling process.

    DigniCap is currently available in over 150 locations in the U.S. across 30 states. Learn more at dignicap.com

    "Some doctors/studies say that losing your hair is harder than the actual diagnosis itself. It’s true. I was able to still feel like myself, get up on stage and confidently perform in a sketch comedy show at week 12 on chemo. I just finished 20 rounds of chemo (5 months)! I’m so thankful to still have a near-perfect, full head of hair."

    Marissa, DigniCap Patient
