Depending upon the type of cancer treatment, chemotherapy can do the following things:

Several complications can arise after a patient undergoes chemotherapy. Such complications can be in the form of: − Thinning eyebrows even losing them completely − Losing eyelashes − Physical diseases
These complications can be cured by micro pigmentation and permanent makeup. New techniques in micro pigmentation can help with these problems.
