We’re in a new frontier of biocellular medicine. ALMI, or Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection, is a cosmetic technique that utilizes fat to help patients achieve rejuvenation. More specifically, ALMI achieves rejuvenation through the body’s own transfer of specialized cells that develop into fat cells, collagen cells, and healthier skin cells. With a patient’s own regenerative cells and fatty tissue, ALMI can provide natural rejuvenation to your face and hands – in a safe and effective manner with little to no downtime.
What Concerns Does ALMI Address
- Skin texture and tone
- Structure of underlying tissues
- Loss of volume
- Skin elasticity
ALMI is a revolutionary cosmetic technique that uses the patient’s own tissues to restore the skin’s tone, volume, and texture.
As people age, the collagen production in their skin and their fat volume starts to deplete. This leads to the loss of facial volume, as well as the formation of wrinkles and lines. ALMI’s unique treatment uses a combination of regenerative cells and fat tissue to rejuvenate the skin.
Here’s how ALMI is performed: First 20 cc’s (equivalent to 4 teaspoons) of fat will be gently extracted through aspiration. The extraction’s cellular mix of fat and progenitor cells are then passed through a series of ALMI filters, which creates a fat sample that’s enriched with progenitor cells. ALMI is then injected into the areas where it can create maximum rejuvenation. Depending on your needs, it can be injected into areas like the cheeks, hands, and even the breasts.
No doubt, fillers do great work in fine tuning facial lines and wrinkles. However, what makes ALMI a unique injectable is that it utilizes our body’s natural progenitor cell transfer mechanism. These progenitor cells are taken from the patient’s fat and injected into the skin to restore the youthful, natural shape of the face. Because it’s a natural treatment that uses the patient’s own tissues, this treatment has a low risk of side effects and complications.
ALMI is revolutionary, effective, and non-invasive; it can turn back the hands of time with the patient’s own natural tissues. Because ALMI utilizes the body’s natural regenerative processes, patients should see gradual, long-term improvement over time as well as instant volume enhancement. Other benefits of ALMI include:
- ALMI is natural and doesn’t use synthetic materials
- Can be done to sensitive areas such as the areas around the eyes and lips
- An impressively quick procedure
ALMI reduces the visibility of wrinkles and lines by restoring fat and collagen stores in the skin. The mixture also creates a long-term boost in the production of collagen in the skin.
Collagen and elastin are the proteins in the skin that make it firm, elastic, and youthful. ALMI restores the stores of collagen and elastin in the skin, so gradually, patients should see fresher, tighter, and firmer skin.
The mixture of fat and progenitor cells act like ‘fillers’ when injected into the skin. It adds volume to cheeks and other parts of the face that have hollowed out. ALMI can help restore natural facial volume to the face as well as encourage long-term collagen rebuilding.
Skin texture, tone, and structure can be improved with ALMI. The skin can become rough, loose, and undefined due to aging. ALMI can encourage the growth of fresher skin cells, allowing for flawless, evenly toned, and smooth skin to reveal itself.
