Brief Answer:
Regain hair with modern Dermatological surgery. It works!

Detailed Answer:
Dear Faheem,

I very much appreciate your concern about your hair, and
I wish to thank you for your faith in

I am Dr. Neel Kudchadkar and I will help you so you can benefit.

What is hair loss?
Why does it occur?
What can we do to regain luxurious hair growth?

Hair loss is called "alopecia". It can occur in females also. The main
"culprits" behind hair loss are called as hormones in your body. These
"hormones" are actually very powerful natural chemicals produced in the
body that cause physical growth, brain development and many "good" events.
If male hormones are produced in excess, then they lead to "bad" events,
like hair loss. One of these hormones is DHT.

There are 2 broad ways to treat hair loss, through medicines or through
surgery (minor physical procedure).

Dear Faheem, you say that you have tried Mintop 5%, this is called as
minoxidil by doctors. The problem with this medicine is that it does not
act very fast, rather it takes many months to give adequate results. So,
be patient. XXXXXXX City was not built in 1 day.

Faheem, you have also tried Finasteride, actually it is a very risky drug
because it can cause prostate problems later in your life.

To conclude, why not try surgical methods to restore your hair?
You have everything to gain and nothing to lose.

There are basically 2 things we can do.

1. Laser therapy.
2. Micro abrasion therapy.

In Laser therapy, a beam of focused light containing over 160 diode low intensity laser beams are trained on those parts of your head where the hair loss has occurred. The hair cells which have weakened and damaged get a new life and the laser causes them OR at least triggers them to become normal again. Normal hair follicle leads to normal hair growth.

Micro-abraison therapy is also called mesotherapy. Here a roller containing very fine needles is passed over the scalp, and this therapy which is partially based on acupuncture, causes new generations of hair follicles leading to hair growth.

These treatments are available in XXXXXXX

Dear Faheem, please be patient, because you know that after undergoing these surgical treatments, when you regain your hair, you will never lose it again.

Take good care of yourself and have faith, it works wonders.

Brief Answer:
Listen Faheem, there is a hair transplant specialist doctor in XXXXXXX ..

Detailed Answer:
Dear Faheem,

It's great to hear from you again.

Faheem, as I suggested the last time we met, if medicinal shampoo's do not work, and dozens
of medicines, be they allopathic, ayurvedic, homeopathic or even commercial products...Then
I am confident that you will definitely benefit ONLY from a hair transplant.

Please save your money and stop purchasing shampoos and medicines.

Let me tell you that the hair transplant procedure is NOT like a "normal" operation.
There is no pain or discomfort. No anesthesia is needed (oxygen mask).
You are perfectly awake, in your senses and talking to your doctor at the same time.

Please go to Dr. Arihant Surana.
He will "fix" your hair problems permanently.
His phone number is +0000.
His clinic is called "Alvi XXXXXXX Hair Transplant Clinic" in XXXXXXX J&K.

I really hope this makes you happy.
It's been nice knowing you.
Please feel free to contact me at

Take care of yourself. Be happy!

That meanz mitop 5% foam is not fruitfull to use.
Answered by Dr. Neel Kudchadkar 14 hours later
Brief Answer:
No. But you can restore your hair by doing this..,

Detailed Answer:
Dear Faheem,

The point is that Mintop 5% foam has the same active drug called "Minoxidil": as any other Mintop product. When a company markets it's products, they create a range of them to maximize consumer choices, so they can make a profit. After all they are businesses.

Personally speaking, Faheem, keeping your best interests in mind, let me directly and politely inform you that Mintop products are, at best a waste of your time, energy and money.

Furthermore I have forwarded the XXXXXXX number of one of J&K's best hair transplant specialist doctors. Please take an appointment and go to XXXXXXX IT IS NOT HARD AND FAST THAT SURGERY OR HAIR TRANSPLANTING WILL HAVE TO BE DONE. I am confident that OTHER TECHNIQUES OF RESTORING RICH HAIR GROWTH WILL BE TRIED FIRST.

So, by visiting XXXXXXX you save money, and have a very high chance of restoring rich hair growth.

Take care,
Dr. Neel Kudchadkar
