Cosmetic Dermatologists are skin care doctors (M.D.), trained in dermatology, who obtain further specialized training in aesthetic care of the skin of the body i.e. to remove hair, remove discoloration, to contour the body by means of non-surgical techniques, to shed the extra kilos, etc. Dr. Kapoor is one of the very few clinicians in India who are internationally certified in this promising super-specialty. Cosmetologists, on the other hand, can be from any speciality (not dermatology residency trained) – So, for all aesthetic & cosmetic skin issues, it is always better to choose a cosmetic dermatologist, as opposed to just a cosmetologist. Similarly, trichologists are most often general physicians with some training in hair. They do not have a residency training in dermatology, and it is certainly open to debate if they are as good at spotting hair diseases, treating hair disorders & specifically causing hair growth & preventing hair loss, as a cosmetic dermatologist would be.

    Dear Dr. Kapoor,

    Is it plan to have QR678 peptide growth factors available as a mesotherapy treatment in europe soon?

    By the way, how is it different than for instance Caregen peptide mesotheraphy treatment?
    I ask this because I tried w/ great hope one year ago Caregen Stem-cell technology w/ peptide growth-factor without any success, so I’m quite skeptic about peptide growth factor effect.
