How Does it Work?

Hair Loss

The hair follicle connects to blood system via a capillary loop in the bulb at the base of the hair follicle (root of the hair).

Certain treatment medication when flowing in the blood can cause damage to the hair follicles, resulting in hair loss.

Cooling the scalp decreases the metabolic rate of the hair follicles into a hibernated state, radically slowing the absorption of treatment medication via the blood capillaries into hair bulbs.

This process helps retain the hair. Some retain nearly all.

Other Conditions

The application of cooled caps or headbands can also be used for other trichology conditions, cooling”hot flashes”, to reduce minor injury oedema and when used as part of healthy lifestyle, may help relieve the impact of migraine or headache.

The caps cold temperature causes blood vessels to constrict, helping
to relieve head pain.

Scalp Preparation

Penguin’s advanced performance Cold Caps have an efficient conductive surface for transferring cold energy to the scalp.

Hair remains dry throughout treatment, no conductor liquid, gel, cream, oil or water is required.

Dry hair throughout Cold Cap Therapy is highly preferable at ultra-low temperatures.

Cool and Fit

Penguin’s advanced performance Cold Caps are pre-cooled to ultra-low temperatures using dry ice or a bio-medical freezer.

The caps are applied to the head ensuring a snug fit. The close contact of the cap enable even distribution of cold to the the scalp.

Even distribution of cold to the scalp ensures practically all hair follicles are exposed to the optimum cooled temperature required for maximum reduction of hair loss.


Headband & Elastic Straps

Gel headbands are applied to provide extra coldness to the hairline.

Velcro fastening elastic straps are used to reinforce the extra snug fit.

The occipital arteries create “hot spots” close to the hairline. The extra cooling provided by the gel headband provides extra protection to the vulnerable and visible areas.
