Hello Britto,you had come to me for the treatment of Alopecia Areata of beard region of 8months duration,without significant hair regrowth.Hence i suggested Intralesional Steriod injectio.Before starting treatment , cost of the treatment is always explained.I also discuss in detail about the procedure and alternatives available.
Surprised to hear about your feedback. i always discuss with you the progress before giving the injection .When you came for 2nd $ 3rd session of injection you were saying the hair regrowth is good and i was also satified about the response .
Coming to the cost of the treatment,here multiple shots of a depot preparation of steroid is injected.So i Anaesthetise the area,the correct dilution has to be done and very small droplets has to be injected very accurately at the dermal level of skin.l.Sometimes i even combine with Mesoproducts also.Hence the cost of treatment. if you had raised this concern during the consultations ,i would have happily explained to you.Thank you.
