Tell me more about ALMI…
The ALMI™ Procedure is a rejuvenation procedure that offers a range of potential benefits. ALMI, or autologous micronized lipocyte injection, utilizes components of your own body fat to encourage natural healing and tissue production processes. These cells are unique because they have the potential to develop into many different types of cells and seek out areas of injury that need rejuvenation or restoration.
There are many ways that these stem cells can decrease signs of the natural aging process:
- Address a range of health concerns with IV infusions or targeted injections of joints to decrease inflammation and pain
- Encourage hair growth
- Promote collagen production for more youthful skin
- Reduce volume loss in areas of cosmetic concern
- Used as a super powered shot where PRP is normally used (like the O-shot)
The ALMI Procedure injection uses cells and substances from body fat for treatment, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP), stem cells, and more.
What Does the Treatment Process Involve?
As the ALMI Procedure uses cells from your own body, the first step in any of these treatments is to gather those cells, which are taken from body fat. A small amount of fat is collected from a donor area, which is often the abdomen or flanks. For your maximum comfort, local anesthetic is often used in the area. Once the fat is collected, it is purified and prepared for treatment as an injection. The beauty of this is that it can be added to any liposuction procedure: we’re taking the fat anyways…might as well get the most out of it!
Injections are targeted at areas of concern. The cells begin to encourage organic healing and rejuvenation through your body’s natural processes. Each of these treatments are performed on an outpatient basis: you leave the same day and there is little to no set downtime associated with a treatment. While you may see some initial results, results typically gradually develop and improve as your body responds to the growth stimulants. Results will vary for each person and treatment type, and a series of treatments may be recommended for the best results.
Is ALMI for me?
The ALMI Procedure is a diverse treatment option that offers a range of benefits. It may be beneficial for those who are seeking a more natural approach to reducing the appearance of signs of aging. As it uses cells from your own body, it may be appealing to those who are seeking treatments that do not use substances foreign to your body.
