The Anti-Aging Secrets of the Ultra Rich

Original Article By Leah Prinzivalli. To be wealthy is to get regular blowouts. But to be ultra rich means you may never wash your own hair. The glow of affluence—achieved through personal chef-fed meals and trainer-shaped limbs—sets the ultra rich apart. More than likely, they also visit the dermatologist every six weeks.

The global market for anti-aging was valued at $250 billion in 2016. By 2021, it’s estimated to reach $334.1 billion. Those numbers aren’t so intimidating for members of the 0.01 percent. In the United States, the average income of a 0.01-percenter is $26.1 million. But it’s not just Americans who get beauty treatments and plastic surgery in the States. Members of the Saudi royal family, elite businesspeople from Hong Kong and plenty of tourists on Fifth Avenue are all here to shave a few years off their appearance and drop hundreds of thousands of dollars in the process.  ..

Hair Today, Hair Tomorrow

Original Article By Greenwich Medspa Staff.

Non-Surgical Hair Restoration now available at Greenwich Medical Spa.

Have you been spending more and more time combing your hair in different ways to try to hide thinning or balding areas? For men and women, there are a variety of causes of hair loss. Whether you are experiencing male-pattern hair loss, alopecia, or a problem caused by medication or vitamin deficiency, non-surgical hair restoration is possible today thanks to a treatment that can slow and reverse hair loss. Injecting platelet rich plasma into the scalp has proven highly effective for slowing and reversing hair loss in men and women. When followed by a homecare regimen, this minimally invasive, minimal-downtime treatment, stimulates hair to grow thicker and denser during the next several months, whatever the cause of hair loss.

At Greenwich Medical Spa, we call this treatment the Activator because it literally reactivates hair follicles in your scalp to promote hair growth. Rather than applying platelet rich plasma (PRP) during treatment, we now use the Selphyl System, which isolates platelet-rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM) from a small sample of your blood. PRFM contains a heightened level of healthy growth factors and proteins extracted by the special Selphyl machine. You can think of PRFM as the next generation of PRP. PRFM sustains growth factor release for seven days, whereas PRP only sustains growth factor release for up to four hours. That is a significant improvement! By injecting PRFM directly into the scalp, these powerful growth factors activate the stem cells that produce hair follicles. Once activated, your hair follicles once again begin to do what they were meant to do – grow more hair more often.  ..
