A cancer diagnosis can be devastating. It can affect anyone at any age. Many individuals diagnosed with cancer will undergo chemotherapy treatment. Chemotherapy-induced hair loss (alopecia) can be profoundly traumatic, and ranks among the most psychologically challenging side-effects of cancer treatment.
In addition to scalp hair loss, cancer patients may also lose their eyebrows. Eyebrow hair loss results in cosmetic changes that can cause substantial emotional distress in cancer patients.
There are few satisfactory options available that address the loss of eyebrows in connection with chemotherapy. Frequently used remedies include stencils to draw/pencil in eyebrows, tattoos, or artificial hairs shaped like an eyebrow, which are adhered to the skin. These replacements, which look unnatural and offer no range of emotion or facial expressions, do little to improve the psychological and emotional ramifications of alopecia. RMV Trademarks addressed this problem by creating EES to help cancer patients look and feel their best as they face the challenges of chemotherapy treatment.
