Hair Loss Treatment Regrowth

Hair Loss Treatment and Hair Regrowth

By | Hair Loss

PRP hair loss treatments continue to grow in demand as patients seek alternative means for aesthetic enhancement and youth regeneration. For those who experience male or female hair loss or hair thinning, or notice wrinkles, fine lines, and crow’s feet, PRP treatments represent an innovative solution to age-old problems.

Non Surgical Hair Loss Treatments by the Grimes Center for Medical and Aesthetic Dermatology

We specialize in minimally-invasive and non-invasive treatments that help bring out the very best version of you. We specialize in a variety of non-surgical beauty and aesthetic enhancement treatments, all under one roof:

  • Addressing hair loss and promoting new hair growth
  • Reducing the effects of aging
  • Treating a wide range of pigmentation disorders

PRP is Different than Fillers

PRP (Platelet-rich Plasma) should never be confused with dermal fillers or other injectables.

PRP comes from your own blood, which we draw from your arm, in most cases. We then place the blood in a centrifuge, which separates PRP from the other blood components, a process that only takes about 15 minutes. We then strategically place injections in the scalp when performing hair loss treatments. Results won’t be immediately noticeable, but over the coming weeks and months, most patients enjoy new, fuller growth, more than what you’d notice using over- the- counter methods. This is a very promising treatment!

The Best Part: It’s Totally Natural

With no chemicals or manufactured substances, PRP is made up of your own platelet-rich plasma, which has growth factors that revitalize your scalp. There’s
no downtime and most patients can commence their daily activities immediately.

Hair Loss Treatment Cost

Depending on the treatment area and results desired, the recommended number and associated cost of treatments will vary from patient to patient. During your initial visit with Dr. Grimes, she will discuss everything you need to know. Our process is completely transparent; you’ll know everything upfront before we start.

Thinning hair and hair loss in women

Male pattern baldness seems to take center stage in discussions when it comes to balding or thinning hair, but womenexperience thinning hair and hair loss as well.

Thinning Hair and Hair Loss by the Numbers

Female thinning hair statistics are surprising. AmericanHairLoss.org reports that women make up over 40% of all American hair loss sufferers. It’s a different sort of struggle for a woman, because it’s more socially acceptable for a man to be balding, or suffer from thinning hair. Over 50% of women over 50 years old experience hair loss to some degree. DNA from both parents can play a role in whether or not you’ll experience hair loss, though your mother’s genes have the strongest say in the matter. The effects of living with female hair loss can be devastating, seriously affecting quality of life and self-esteem in women.

You Don’t Have to Live with Thinning Hair Any Longer

For patients seeking alternative treatments to surgery (skin grafts, transplants, etc.), we have treatments for women with thinning hair, such as PRP injections that activate your body’s own natural healing process, which promotes new hair growth.

A Warm, Comfortable Atmosphere

At the Grimes Center for Medical and Aesthetic Dermatology, we create a place where you can address the areas that concern you without resorting to risky surgical procedures with considerable downtime. The latest treatments for hair loss and hair thinning in women is available today at the Grimes Center for Medical and Aesthetic Dermatology. Our PRP hair loss treatments for women will provide noticeable results that keep building for weeks or even months. Most patients are quite pleased to experience thicker, fuller hair without resorting to surgical procedures.

Most patients are able to commence regular activities right after treatment. Though swelling and/or bruising can occur, symptoms should subside within a matter of days.

Body Contouring

Body Contouring

By | Blog, Body Contouring

Are you tired of dealing with unwanted fat in problem areas resistant to dietary change and exercise? Is that you on the elliptical or on the exercise bike, sticking to your diet religiously, seldom deviating or scheduling “cheat” days? We all know how frustrating it can be when you’ve changed your habits, you’ve created a new, healthy routine, yet problem areas of the body still linger.

Shape.com asserts that 89% of women in America are unhappy with their weight.
DoSomething.org is even less optimistic, reporting that 91% of women don’t like their bodies and resort to dieting to change body shape.

Only about 5% of women naturally enjoy the body type we see most portrayed in American media. For the rest of us, body contouring is a new option available, now offered by globally recognized dermatologist, Pearl E. Grimes, MD, FAAD, medical director of the Grimes Center of Medical and Aesthetic Dermatology.

Fat is Stubborn, Plain and Simple

As science tells us, certain individuals have different body types and react differently to foods and nutrients.You might be eating right and working hard at the gym, but some areas might still be elusive.

Problem areas of the body might include:

● Thighs
● Arms
● Butt
● Neck/Underneath the Chin

What Are the Options if the Gym Isn’t Helping?

In another survey conducted by DoSomething.org, more than 40% of women and 20% of men agreed that they would consider or have considered plastic surgery at some point in their lives. However, it is no longer necessary to resort to invasive, and potentially risky, surgeries to achieve noticeable results.

At the Grimes Center for Medical and Aesthetic Dermatology, we incorporate cutting-edge technology into our practice, including truSculpt® 3D Body Contouring, which uses conductive RF delivery that disruptis subcutaneous adipose tissue without overheating the skin.

Dr. Grimes specializes in treating patients of all ethnicities, all ages and stages of life, expertly helping individuals feel positively about their appearance. Contact us today to schedule your initial consultation to learn more about body contouring and the ways it can help you take control of your figure, even in problem areas resistant to exercise. During your initial visit will discuss with you everything you need to know. Together, we’ll get to the ideal you, non-invasively.
