ALMI, or Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection, is an all-natural, minimally
invasive treatment that uses your own cells and tissues, rather than synthetic fillers, to
restore a more youthful appearance, improving volume, texture and tone.
ALMI patients see remarkable results quickly, and the simple, 45-minute outpatient
procedure has the potential to match or exceed the reputation of traditional skin
WHAT IS ALMI?
ALMI (Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection) might seem similar to other skin
rejuvenation injection treatments designed to boost collagen, elastin and redirect fat
But it takes the rejuvenation process to a more natural place, by using your own
body’s regenerative cells and fat tissues, offering complete, purely natural rebuilding
of lost collagen and volume with no surgery, and even fewer side effects.
Skin and structure on your face and hands loses volume and support over time, with
aging or weight loss, thanks to the slowing of collagen production as we age. ALMI
addresses these issues with quick, non-invasive injections performed right in our
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Patients report seeing effects immediately after the ALMI procedure, and as your body
adjusts to the boost of its own rebuilding cells, results are even stronger after several
weeks. We are specially trained in techniques to maximize optimal results for each
patient thoroughly and safely.
IS THERE ANY RECOVERY?
There is minimal to no downtime with this all-natural, outpatient procedure, and the
ALMI process takes less than 45 minutes. Most patients are able to return to normal
activities immediately after treatment, and our staff will share any additional needed
information based on your individual procedure during your consultation.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR ALMI?
Clients seeing the greatest results from ALMI are those who are experiencing
collagen loss in their hands, face, neck or other areas. By age 40, most people have
up to 20 percent collagen loss and by age 50, 30 percent collagen loss. ALMI offers a
replacement that improves all signs of aging, like wrinkles, rough texture, dull tone,
structure and volume loss, elasticity, and sun spots. As always, your overall health,
medical history, treatment expectations, and aesthetic goals will be evaluated to see if
ALMI is right for you.
ALMI Hair Restoration
Hair Rejuvenation Is Possible
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 aid in the
stem cell niche for hair cycling as a non-surgical option for patients experiencing hair
This procedure is appropriate for both men and women!
