Most patients tolerate scalp cooling with The DigniCap Scalp Cooling System very well. The system cools the cap down gradually from room temperature, and the cap temperature never drops below freezing to help make the treatment more comfortable for patients.
Common side effects include a feeling of coldness, headache, scalp pain and/or light-headedness. Your doctor can provide a pain reliever if you develop a headache. A warm drink and blanket can also help during treatments.
