Your body slows collagen production in the mid-to-late-20’s. By age 40, most people have up to 20% collagen loss and 30% collagen loss by the age of 50. In order to restore this lost volume, the structure must be rebuilt to have a more youthful appearance. Using a combination of the body’s regenerative cells and fat tissue, ALMI™ offers complete rejuvenation and natural-looking results without having to go under the knife.
The ALMI™ procedure is a non-surgical treatment program that uses your own regenerative cells and fat tissues to address aging skin. Each ALMI™ provider has been specially trained in the techniques and methodology to maximize optimal results safely.
ALMI™ offers a complete rejuvenation with natural-looking results, as the entire procedure comes from YOU!
The entire process is typically done right in your provider’s treatment room, and usually takes about an hour or less. A small amount of tissue (fat) is harvested using a needle-sized cannula under local anesthetic. This is usually done in abdomen, or flank, depending on the patient’s fat stores.
The fat is then processed to remove the unwanted material, and the remaining viable fat is micronized (liquified) to be used with needles and syringes similar to that of other facial injectable materials.
A small amount of blood may be drawn for PRP injections, and the area to receive the ALMI procedure is numbed with local anesthetic (usually numbing gel, and/or numbing injection). The patient is injected in a similar manner to that of receiving other injectables, based on the desired outcome and area to be treated.
Once the patient and physician are satisfied with the injected fat, the PRP is then injected in similar locations. Once finished, the patient is then able to leave the physician’s office and resume their daily activities, following any post-procedure instructions provided by the physician.
