ALMI™

ALMI - Before and After

The ALL ME=All Natural Rejuvenation Procedure

As we age, collagen production is reduced causing our face and hands to loose volume. Our skin wrinkles and loses elasticity causing us to look older then we may like. Dermal fillers have been on the market for years to plump wrinkles and add volume, however, some individuals seek a more natural, longer lasting approach. ALMI provides you this option. It is a revolutionary rejuvenation procedure that uses your own tissues to restore volume, elasticity, texture and tone with natural looking results. ALMI is different from traditional dermal fillers, as they do not offer the capability of tissue regeneration and repair.  

How does ALMI work?

The process is Bio-Cellular therapy.  This therapy is the process of extracting adult stem and stromal cells from fat tissue and re-introducing them into the face and hands.  Simply put a few tablespoons of fat and blood are extracted from the most accessible area (usually the abdomen) and reintroduced into an area that has lost fat over the years.  We are able to inject the cells into the face to diminish fine lines and wrinkles and add volume to give you a more youthful appearance. These processed cells have the capability to develop into many different types of cells to repair. The best part is these treatments utilize your own tissues, which stimulate the growth, repair and rejuvenation of the skin.

What can I expect?

This is a same day office visit with little downtime. The fat extraction is completed under a local anesthetic.  It is usually taken out of the abdomen or your lower back. You will receive a stitch or two at the point of entry.  The fat injections are performed similar to dermal filler injections based on desired outcome and areas to be treated.

You may experience swelling that typically subsides in 72 hours, tenderness and redness at the injection and extraction site.  You will want to take it easy for the remainder of the day and perhaps the following day. Results vary by patients and this list does not include all risks. Our providers will give you specific instructions for before and after the procedure, including guidelines on diet, medications, activity level, and smoking. If you smoke, plan to quit at least 2weeks before and two weeks after the treatment. Carefully following these instructions will help you achieve maximum results.
