ALMI™ (Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection) Tampa
ALMI is one of the first, most advanced and truly regenerative “autologous” procedure using your own tissue to restore volume, texture and tone as well as repair and restore damaged to various skin, scalp and hand conditions. ALMI’s Bio-Cellular therapy is an all-natural procedure and simple outpatient treatment that can turn back the clock in less than 45 minutes with minimal-to-no downtime.
What is ALMI’s Bio-Cellular therapy?
Bio-cellular therapy is the process of extracting adult stem and stromal cells from fat tissue in the most accessible area (usually from abdominal fat) and then re-injecting them in areas of concern in the body. The abdominal fat is processed into smaller cellular components that are more easily injected and this micronized tissue is then reintroduced into the body in desired areas that may benefit from enhancement and repair. Adult stem and stromal cells have the potential to develop into many different types of cells. Tissue regeneration occurs as these cells seek out areas of injury that need repair or restoration. The body’s natural healing process is fairly efficient, but modern science can accelerate this process.
The ALMI™ process entails combination therapy by also separately harvesting a small volume of autologous platelets (platelet rich plasma or PRP) from the blood. The micronized fat (adipose cells and their stem and stromal cell components) and then the autologous platelets are then carefully placed directly into desired areas to amplify the healing capabilities that lead to repair, regeneration and revitalization of tissue. Non-micronized traditional fat transfer/liposculpture can also be performed at the same time for areas in need of more significant volume enhancement/replacement.
Bio-cellular therapy has helped many patients to utilize their own tissue to restore various conditions:
- Face, including volume loss in the temples, under eye areas, midface and cheeks, peri-oral (mouth) area, pre-jowl area and jawline and lips.
- Hands (areas of thinning on the back or dorsum of hands)
- Scalp (areas of hair loss and thinning hair)
ALMI™ contains components necessary to stimulate rejuvenation of damaged tissue and to help promote a new blood supply and new collagen growth. Results following the ALMI™ procedure for face and hands are seen immediately and typically improve over time. Many patients experience the “ALMI™ Glow” over a period of weeks after treatment, an effect that causes their skin to take on a youthful, healthy glow due to the rejuvenation effects of the bio-cellular milieu. Please keep in mind that individual conditions vary and outcomes depend on your body’s unique healing process.
