BYE-BYE HAIR TRANSPLANT?
SINGER NAIDA !
Says she was miserable after noting massive hair fall. She began taking QR678 shots three months ago and is happy with the ‘extra volume. ”I took the first shot in Singapore when I was told that the drug was imported from Hyderabad”.
Mumbai:It’s a hair-raising claim. Hyderabad-based doctor couple Dr.Debraj Shome and Dr.Rinky kapoor claim that their home-grown invention, QR 678,could arrest the most stubborn cases of hair fall. Balding could be a thing of past, says Dr Kapoor a dermatologist attached to Apollo Hospital.
According to the duo,there invention called QR 678 entailed
Four years of research work as it went through various stages of development laboratories of Tata Memorial Hospital, IIT Mumbai and
Apollo Hospital in Hyderabad . “If there is no research paper on it yet,”
Says Dr.Shome ”it is only because we have still not patented the molecule, which is basically a mix of many growth factors.”
The doctors’700-old patient pool, each of whom have undergone five to eight shots of Rs 5,000 each has generated much word of -mouth publicity for the new technique. Indipop singer Anaida is only one of the Celebs from Mumbai who zips across to Charminar city every three weeks for a shot .
Apart from the QR 678, doctors now also offer stem cell therapy to rescue ones crowning glory.
Dr. Debraj Shome is Director and Co founder of The Esthetic Clinics. He has been rated amongst the top surgeons in India by multiple agencies. The Esthetic Clinics patients include many international and national celebrities who prefer to opt for facial cosmetic surgery and facial plastic surgery in Mumbai because The Esthetic Clinics has its headquarters there.
