If you’re not sure whether you might be claustrophobic, the best way to describe the head cast is if several people were to place their hands on your head, face, neck, shoulders and chest, so you feel enclosed. During the process, we will make sure to regularly ask if everything is going good. If at any time during the head cast you start to feel uncomfortable, just let us know by signalling a thumbs down and we will make sure to remove the cast asap. If everything is going good just signal a thumbs up. In regards to the duration, the head cast should take no longer than 30-40 mins altogether, combined with the bald cap application.
If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, please don’t hesitate to contact me and i will provide you with further information in regards to the location and dates for the second application.
