QUESTION: 1) Dr Peter , Few months back I discussed with you that can it happens that dental surgery such as extraction of teeth under LOCAL ANESTHESIA for braces installation can cause TE. You replied it can happen , HOWEVER, it does NOT happen often. Sir to be on the safe side if I want to minimize the risk of TE then in such situation what would be the best time to use Minoxidil 5% spray, i.e before surgery or after surgery?

2) Can one inject Revivogen lotion in mesoderm for  slowing down AGA?

Answer
Humair,
 This is not a discussion group nor is it Facebook. It is a Q & A for people to get an answer from one of the experts on Allexperts.com
The average questioner asks one or two questions. I have answered over 20 from you and can not continue to do so.
 This will have to be the last of the answers.
1) Before surgery up until 2 days before and then 10 days after.

2) I would not inject Revivogen for any reason.
