Oncology and Alopecia
Precisely in an oncology process is when you have to love yourself and take care of your image, it is scientifically shown that if you feel good about your image and take care of yourself, it will have an impact on improving your immune system.
The others will have a good acceptance of your image and your self-esteem goes up. I personally collaborated at the Puerta de Hierro Hospital with the Stanpa Foundation, www.stanpa.com, whose slogan is “Be beautiful and you will feel better”, helping women with cancer where we teach them skin care and makeup.
There is always a before and after in the workshop, they leave with a radiant, bright and much happier face in that little while. Well, being an oncology patient does not mean you have to stop putting on makeup or getting ready.
If your doctor allows it, do not hesitate to get an eyebrow or eyelash tattoo. Before or after and even during the chemotherapy process you can see yourself fixed and with your eyebrows; That will not make it so hard if you lose your eyebrows with chemotherapy sessions. It is especially difficult for men when they lose their eyebrows, because they do not usually put on makeup and have a really bad time.
There are also many other pathology where alopecia appears, and when reflected externally it causes serious psychological problems:
Loss of self-esteem, anxiety or depression.
Some of my clients express to me how hard it is to lose the eyebrows since the loss of hair on the head is easier to hide but the loss of hair on the eyebrows is a serious problem.
Here we have a girl with alopecia and with a 3D (hyperrealistic) eyebrow we return a more normalized image where she is recognized again. Design and color are tested before starting treatment.
