Illuminations Medical Hair Loss Salon is now open at WellStar Kennestone Hospital, in the 320 Building, Suite 107 (next to WellStar Cancer Center).
The salon specializes in customized wigs and hair replacement systems for women experiencing hair loss due to disease or cancer treatment. The salon’s owner, Kelli Christie, works closely with Recover with Confidence, an organization dedicated to bringing hair loss alternative information and support to chemotherapy patients. The salon provides professional fittings for comfortable wigs, especially suited for sensitive scalps.
“Having our salon at Kennestone will save patients an extra trip,” said Christie. “A typical patient coping with medical hair loss has plenty of other challenges to deal with besides getting custom fitted for a wig. With endless medical appointments and everyday concerns, hair should be the last thing on their mind, but it usually isn’t.
Outward appearance can be greatly tied to morale and perseverance. When people look better, they feel better.”
