Turn back the clock on the aging process . . . restore that youthful appearance with your own tissues!
As we age, collagen production is greatly reduced, causing our faces and hands to lose volume. The skin becomes wrinkled and saggy, and for some individuals, the face they see in the mirror is not the one they want looking back at them! The aging process begins as early as our late twenties, and oftentimes the changes are subtle and not very noticeable, and other times, changes such as loss of volume or texture in the skin causes the face to lose that youthful glow and appearance.
Are Collagen Treatments More Effective than Fillers?
Typical treatments for collagen loss include fillers, fat grafting, or even facelifts. However, these procedures can be costly, involve major surgery, or, in some instances, are not long lasting (such as with fillers or traditional fat grafting). Fillers, in particular, do not contain the components necessary to stimulate collagen growth or rejuvenation of damaged tissue. Without the ability to promote a new blood supply or new collagen growth, which aid in addressing textural and tone issues, fillers may leave a lot to be desired – and while there is an immediate result, they may not last long enough.
ALMI Procedure for Collagen Loss
Enter ALMI™. The ALMI™ (Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection) Procedure is used to inject a patient’s micronized fat and autologous platelets directly into the area of concern, similar to that of traditional fillers. Injected into the face, ALMI™ will rejuvenate damaged tissue, fill hollowed out areas, and smooth out wrinkles and lines. ALMI will restore texture, tone, and elasticity, and the results can improve over time as the collagen is stimulated to rejuvenate. When injected into the lips, ALMI™ provides plump and beautiful lips and helps to remove those little lines around the lips, a chief complaint of aging.
Finally, injected into hands, ALMI™ will rejuvenate, smooth, and plump the hands, restoring that youthful look in the process, often taking years off their appearance.
How Much is Injected to Stimulate Growth?
With the ALMI™ Procedure utilizing the patient’s own tissues, the only limit to how much is injected, and thus used to stimulate growth, renew and refresh the face and hands is how much viable tissue is harvested. This benefits the patient by not having to determine how much to purchase, but rather, the desired outcome that the patient and physician determine is best for that individual patient. The Procedure itself is done right in your physician’s treatment room, in about an hour, with little to no downtime.
Results for face and hands are seen immediately and continue to improve over time. Many patients report the “ALMI™ Glow,” the effect of their skin taking on a youthful, healthy glow due to the rejuvenation process of the bio-cellular milieu.
