while finax is a good option for bachelors but it does have side effects. mesotherapy is also very nascent technique being used for early stage alopecia with no evidence based beneficial effects. it has no promising results so its not sure that you will get desired effects after spending so much money. studies suggest that once hair loss is started it can only be slowed down by medications like finax. so i would suggest continue with finax.
