You may lose some or all of your hair (called alopecia) in the area being treated. The hair loss is usually temporary, but it can be permanent in some cases.
Hair loss isn't easy to adjust to, but your hair may start growing back again after you've finished your treatments. If you want to cover your head, you can wear hats, turbans, or scarves, or you may want to buy a wig or a toupee. These hairpieces are tax-deductible medical expenses and are sometimes covered by insurance.
