“Nothing good lasts forever.”
Unfortunately, even our smooth, youthful skin falls victim to this age-old adage. In fact, adults over the age of 29 can expect to lose 1% of collagen every year. The good news, though, is that the new “ALMI™” procedure helps you restore your youthful, wrinkle-free skin with a single treatment.
So what is this revolutionary treatment and why is it so effective? Well, the “ALMI™” procedure is an all-natural, non-invasive procedure that combines fat transfer with the restorative effects of PRP (platelet rich plasma).
This procedure isn’t limited to facial rejuvenation. The ALMI™ procedure can also be used to reverse age-related issues throughout the entire body, including:
- Hair loss
- Vaginal rejuvenation
- Erectile dysfunction
- Male enhancement
- Damaged tissue
- And so much more!
And the best news? Your favorite naturopathic doctors at Phoenix Anti-Aging Clinic now offer this specialized treatment. Read on to learn more about how this treatment works.
How ALMI™ Works: Fat transfer with PRP…
ALMI™, which stands for Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection, works by using your own fat cells (harvested from elsewhere in your body, such as the abdomen), shrinking them down and injecting into trouble areas.
So why is shrinking down your fat cells a good thing prior to injection? Well, to start, it means less downtime and swelling than a traditional fat transfer that uses larger globules of fat.
Also, because of the smaller size of the cells, there is a higher proportion of fat cells that survive the transfer, meaning longer lasting results and more of a “what you see is what you get” effect immediately after the treatment.
What to expect
The ALMI™ process takes anywhere from 1 to 2 hours, requires little to no downtime and provides immediate results that continuously improve over the course of 4 months.
Here’s what a typical ALMI™ treatment looks like:
- Step 1: Blood is drawn to extract platelet-rich plasma.
- Step 2: A small amount of fat is harvested (usually from the abdomen area) during a quick, painless “mini-liposuction” session.
- Step 3: The fat is purified then mixed with the PRP.
- Step 4: The ALMI™ fluid (fat plus PRP) is then injected into the needed areas.
- Step 5: Enjoy the results and get back to your daily activities right away!
Why it works
The ALMI™ procedure is one of the most dramatic and effective anti-aging procedures available today. The procedure works so well because it uses the power of our body’s natural “stem cells”.
You see, stem cells are powerful cells that help repair our body’s tissues. But their real power lies in the fact that they are “unspecialized” cells, meaning that they can transform into whatever kind of cell our body needs. So, regardless of whether they are injected into the face to restore volume, into the scalp for hair regeneration or into the joints for tissue repair, stem cells transform accordingly to rejuvenate the area.
But the ALMI™ procedure doesn’t rely on stem cells alone. The procedure adds platelet-rich plasma to the harvested stem cells to kick up the rejuvenating effects an extra notch.
