Scalp Cooling Systems Market Segmented By Hospitals, Clinics and Ambulatory Surgical Centers
Scalp cooling systems are used to treat hair loss caused by certain chemotherapeutic agents. Scalp Cooling/Cold cap can employ with all types of solid tumors that are treated with chemotherapeutic agents like alkylating agents (e.g. Cyclophosphamides), DNA intercalating agents/anthracyclines agents (e.g. doxorubicin) and taxanes (e.g. docetaxel).
In cancer treatment, these drugs target rapidly dividing cell and keratinocytes matrix, which results in loss of hair. Scalp cooling systems work by reducing temperatures by a few degrees of the scalp. It can be used before, during or after the administration of chemotherapy. Scalp cooling systems also reduce the hair follicular blood flow which may minimize or prevent the hair fall. Hair fall frequently occurs due to the complete or partial atrophy of hair root, which results in constriction of the hair shaft and easy breakage.
Cooling used to decelerate the metabolism of cells, and it leads to cytotoxicity of chemotherapeutic agents localized to the scalp. Scalp cooling systems cause vasoconstriction which reduces the blood flow to the scalp, results in the reduction of chemotherapeutic agent deposition into the hair follicle. It leads to the lower effective dose may enter the hair follicles. 220 C is an optimum temperature that can reduce the alopecia. Scalp Cooling systems are helmet like structure with a coolant that generates a temperature of -15 and -40 Fahrenheit.
Rising concerns of alopecia in cancer patients and increasing awareness of scalp cooling systems drive the growth of the market. The usage of scalp cooling systems are proven to be effective against hair loss induced by chemotherapeutic agents and can result in the complete preservation of hair or high level of retention. For Cancer patients, scalp cooling systems given an opportunity to regain some control over alopecia.
Till the date, only two scalp cooling systems approved for marketing by FDA first was DigniCap System in 2015 and second was Paxman Scalp Cooling System in 2017. Investing in Scalp cooling systems has allowed companies to attain technical precision and clinical efficacy which drives the market. All these factors act as a driver in burgeoning growth of scalp cooling systems market.
Limited applicability and less awareness regarding cooling systems are acting as a restraint on the growth of scalp cooling systems market.
