Your Life: Advanced
Treatments by Age
IN YOUR 20s
As you focus on body contouring or facial symmetry, consider CoolSculpting or dermal fillers. These treatments can help you maintain your youthful glow and enhance your features—naturally.
IN YOUR 30s
Your skin may begin showing early signs of aging. This is the perfect time to start preventative treatments like Botox to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles and laser treatments to promote collagen production and maintain skin elasticity.
IN YOUR 40s
You may notice an increase in dark spots and uneven skin tone due to sun exposure or hormone changes. A photofacial can be an excellent option to even out skin tone and diminish the appearance of these spots, and laser treatments or skin rejuvenation procedures can further enhance your skin's health and appearance.
AFTER YOUR 50s
Your skin might need moxre help rejuvenating itself. Chemical peels can be beneficial at this stage, as they help shed dead skin cells, revealing fresh, younger-looking skin underneath. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment is another great option, leveraging your body's healing power to stimulate skin renewal and reduce signs of aging.
Guiding Your Journey to Comprehensive Wellness
The Advanced Life Clinic, owned by Dr. Hayley DeGraaff, an Arkansas native and graduate of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, stands as one of the region's prime destinations for integrative, whole-body wellness and anti-aging approaches. After completing her family medicine residency at UAB Huntsville and working in geriatrics as an associate professor of medicine, Dr. DeGraaff developed an interest in anti-aging medicine. This led her to undergo further training in the field and establish the Advanced Life Clinic in 2004. Initially focusing on basic anti-aging procedures, the clinic swiftly embraced an integrated approach that includes lifestyle coaching, weight loss, and wellness. Licensed to practice medicine in Alabama since 1996, Dr. DeGraaff is a member of the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine and has been certified in the use of various state-of-the-art medical technologies. She has also completed numerous training courses in Botox® and wrinkle fillers and previously served on Sculptra's physician training staff.
Dr. Jennifer Sholes, a board-certified Family Medicine Physician, has over a decade of clinical experience. Originally from North Alabama, she graduated from Auburn University with a Bachelor of Chemical Engineering before working at the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center. Sholes transitioned to medical school at UAB, earning her Doctor of Medicine in 2009, and trained with renowned local doctors during her Family Medicine residency in Huntsville. She has contributed significantly to the Huntsville Hospital Physician Care Network, caring for patients across different age groups. After a stint in telemedicine, she's enthusiastic about returning to in-person patient care. With a special interest in dermatology and procedures, Dr. Sholes is excited to utilize her artistic eye and medical acumen at Advanced Life Clinic, helping patients to achieve their wellness and aesthetic goals.

We offer a wide range of noninvasive, state-of-the-art cosmetic procedures to help you look your best, including:
BOTOX serves multiple functions in both cosmetic and medical applications. In aesthetics, the FDA has approved BOTOX to address moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows—also known as "11 lines" or glabellar lines—horizontal forehead lines formed by muscle contractions and crow's feet around the eyes. By relaxing the muscles causing these dynamic wrinkles, BOTOX effectively smooths the skin and reduces these lines' visibility. Regain your younger, more refreshed appearance.
Studies show that patients who work within a fitness team are more likely to succeed at losing weight than those who try on their own.

Combat the visible effects of age; improve the overall quality of your skin.
