Dr. Hayley DeGraaff is an Arkansas native and graduate of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. Dr. DeGraaff originally completed her residency in family medicine at UAB Huntsville, but later went on to work in geriatrics as an associate professor of medicine of the university. It was during this time that she became interested in anti-aging medicine and the growing effort to improve overall patient wellness.
After pursuing additional training in the field, Dr. DeGraaff opened Advanced Life Clinic in 2004, starting with simple anti-aging procedures but quickly adopting an overall, integrative practice that includes lifestyle coaching, weight loss, and wellness. Today, the Advanced Life Clinic is one of the region’s foremost destinations for patients interested in a whole-body approach to looking and feeling younger.
As for Dr. DeGraaff, she says the satisfaction that comes with helping patients achieve their goals cannot be underestimated. “A lot of people might look as aesthetics as totally frivolous. Are we curing cancer?” she asks. “No. But patients are extremely appreciative when you make them feel better. It’s very rewarding.”
Dr. DeGraaff has been licensed to practice medicine in Alabama since 1996, and is a member of the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine as well as a past member of the American Academy of Family Practice. Dr. DeGraaff is fully trained and certified in the use of the Lumenis Lightsheer laser, Lumenis Duet, Ultherapy, Matrix CO2 Laser, Sandstone Tattoo Removal Lasers, the Quantum IPL Laser, and the Zimmer laser. She has completed numerous training courses in the use of Botox® and wrinkle fillers, and at one time was a member of the physician training staff for Sculptra.
