When CBS’s The Doctors aired a segment on hair-regrowth therapy, they featured the same Lifegrow System offered by Miracle Hair Growth Centers. Health reporters on ABC News also reported positive results from the FDA-cleared, cold-laser Lifegrow 5000 treatment, which has been shown to increase hair density in up to 80% of patients after three to six months of treatment. Inside the center, certified technicians create individualized treatment plans for patients before handheld lasers comfortably circle scalps to increase blood flow, stimulate cell metabolism, check for alien life forms, and block the hair-loss-causing hormone DHT. Miracle Hair Growth Centers also carries pharmaceutical-grade, natural hair products such as shampoos, conditioners, and other topical tonics that help block DHT and may ameliorate the effects of treatment.

During manicures and pedicures, techs lavish nails with OPI color in an open contemporary setting of gray, brown, and maple tones and white stainless steel. Shoppers get a chance to try out products, many of which are made in the United States, before they take the financial plunge.
