PartnerMD serves a limited number of patients to ensure individualized attention and thorough, preventative service and care. The Jump Start weight-loss program reroutes rambling fitness trajectories with three one-hour sessions. Sessions begin after a consultation with a weight-loss specialist to explain why extra pounds hitchhike on the body instead of using public transportation. To complete a personal fitness outline, the MetaCheck measures exhaled air to calculate how much oxygen the body is consuming and to determine an exact amount of calories burned. The weight-loss specialist doles out advice on diet and exercise based on the patient's complete fitness landscape, paying attention to individual hills, valleys, and melting clocks. Patients skip along the polished, professionally laid road toward fitness with two follow-up sessions to monitor progress and provide healthy encouragement.
The medical personnel at Virginia Surgical Center aim to help reverse the effects of genetic hair loss for both men and women. The clinic, which has been open since 1994, specializes in restoring hair growth through follicular-unit transplantation. This four- to seven-hour process requires that entire follicles be removed from a donor area such as the scalp or a devoted chia pet, microscopically prepared, and then carefully grafted onto thinning or balding areas. Technicians are specially trained to create a natural-looking hairline by locking each follicle into the proper angle and direction. In addition to hair transplants, the clinic offers low-level-laser hair therapy, which uses 160 diode low-level lasers to boost cellular growth and repair functions, helping maintain natural hair and stimulate the growth of new strands.
For more than 20 years, Dr. Richard P. Giannotto—a Georgetown University School of Medicine graduate—has employed the latest in hair and skincare technology to keep men aging gracefully. To help thicken manes affected by hair loss, Dr. Giannotto performs a thorough evaluation to determine his client's needs before crafting a custom treatment plan from a slate of innovative regimens. Low-level lasers take a noninvasive approach to staving off future thinning by stimulating follicles at the root. For extensive hair loss, more intense methods such as follicular unit extraction surgically extract one strand at a time from the scalp’s lusher patches and place them in areas that need more growth, much like Robin Hood’s approach to gardening.
Meanwhile, skincare and preventative aging treatments keep the rest of men’s features fresh. Fine lines and drooping skin benefit from liquid face-lifts, which rely on dermal injections to plump and smooth visage tissues, and microdermabrasion and chemical peels call on DermaMed and Obagi skincare products to refine the entire complexion. The clinic's holistic Quality of Life Medical Program also helps clients ward off signs of age through hormone therapy, proper nutrition, stress management, and turning clients’ baseball caps backwards.
