SCIENCE of  STRUCTURE

 

ALMI (Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection) is a revolutionary skin rejuvenation procedure using your own tissues to restore volume, texture and tone.  The all-natural procedure is a simple outpatient treatment that can turn back the clock in less than 45 minutes with minimal to no downtime for Face, Hands and Hair.

When people get older and lose collagen, or even experience weight loss, volume is depleted and the structural support to your skin in lost.​

Your body slows collagen production in your mid-to late-20’s.  By age 40, most people have up to 20% collagen loss and by age 50 30% collagen loss. In order to restore the volume to a younger state, the volume and structure must be rebuilt to have a more youthful appearance. Using a combination of the body’s regenerative cells and fat tissue, the ALMI offers complete rejuvenation and natural looking results without going under the knife.

​The ALMI Procedure is a nonsurgical treatment program that uses your own regenerative cells and fat tissue to address everything that happens to our skin with aging.  Each ALMI Provider has been specially trained in the techniques and methodology to maximize optimal results safely.

​The ALMI offers a complete rejuvenation with natural looking results as the entire procedure comes from YOU!​

ALMI for hair:

HAIR REJUVENATION is  POSSIBLE

TAKE BACK CONTROL OF YOUR HAIR . . . AND RESTORE YOUR CONFIDENCE!

Hair loss affects 70% of men and 40% of women in their lifetimes and can start as early as a person’s teens, with risk increasing with age.

Miniaturization of the hair follicle is the clinical hallmark of balding in men and women. Certain studies have established that stem cells residing in the scalp remain at persistent numbers, but the conversion of stem cells to the progenitor cells required for follicle regrowth and cycling is reduced in balding patients. Efforts to assist in this regeneration of the hair follicle may induce a more robust and stronger recycling of the hair follicle. Once these stem cells are administered, they have the ability to repair and re-activate dormant follicles, forming new cells of mesenchymal origin.
ALMI aims to provide a targeted placement of these regenerative cells to aide in the stem cell niche for hair cycling as a non-surgical option for patients experiencing hair loss.
