ALMI™ Rejuvenation Treatments
Regenerate Healthy Skin, Hair, and More at the Los Angeles Area's Cosmetic Surgery Institute
Time robs skin of collagen and other important molecules, follicles of their ability to properly grow hair, and the body of healthy fat and more. This can lead to everything from facial lines and creases to bald patches to a diminished sex drive. ALMI™ rejuvenation treatments at the Los Angeles area's Cosmetic Surgery Institute can counter this destruction by re-energizing cells and regenerating healthy tissue for an improved, more youthful look and restored confidence and wellness.
ALMI™ stands for Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection. This is a very technical way of saying it makes use of fat cells taken from the patient and then processed into very small particles, creating a liquid that can be administered where needed.
What to Expect from ALMI™ Rejuvenation
Each ALMI™ rejuvenation treatment begins with the collection of fat cells from an area where there are plenty. For most patients, this means the flanks or abdomen. Cells are removed via a cannula, which is a thin, hollow tube that allows fat to be suctioned out. The incision point will be carefully chosen to minimize visibility of any resulting scar, and the area will be numbed with a local anesthetic to reduce discomfort.
The collected fat is then refined, which ensures unwanted material is not included in the tissue to be processed for injection. The purified cells are liquefied via micronization, which involves passing them through filters to reduce them to micron size.
Fat for ALMI™ rejuvenation can also be combined with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to "supercharge" it. Injections are handled by highly trained and experienced members of the Cosmetic Surgery Institute, who use the material for a variety of treatments. When injected into the scalp, it can stimulate ailing follicles to encourage them to grow robust hair. On the face, ALMI™ rejuvenation treatments can be used to smooth out smoking lines, wrinkles around the eyes, laugh lines, and forehead creases. It can also be used to thicken aging skin on the backs of the hands, the arms, and elsewhere on the body.
Cosmetic Surgery Institute frequently combines ALMI™ rejuvenation with laser treatments to stimulate new collagen production to enhance the added volume. This leads to long-term improvements in the look and feel of aging tissue.
Patients can resume their regular schedule right away after an ALMI™ rejuvenation treatment, as no recuperation or time devoted to recovery is necessary.
