Hair loss is a fairly common condition, often starting early in life and continuing as we age. Men are much more frequently affected by this condition, with 70% of men experiencing some degree of hair loss. Women, on the other hand, experience hair loss about 40% of the time. In the past, hair restoration has been unwieldy while producing subpar results. Now, with ALMI hair restoration, patients can restore their confidence with a fraction of the hassle and downtime.
What is ALMI hair restoration?
ALMI hair restoration is the next generation of effective hair loss solutions. It leverages your body’s own regenerative abilities, helping you regain your hair through a natural and smooth process. Whether you have a receding hairline, balding areas, or loss of hair volume, ALMI has the power to give you relief from these cumbersome conditions. At Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists, our dermatologists are well-versed in this cutting-edge technology, ready to help you find freedom from hair loss.
How does ALMI hair restoration work?
ALMI (Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection) stimulates the hair follicles using your body’s own healing power. As the hair progresses through the natural growth, shed, and dormancy cycles, ALMI works from within to help your body naturally revive failing hair follicles. What’s more, the process is performed as an outpatient procedure, using only local anesthesia to ensure your comfort.
The entire process takes no more than a few hours, involves minimal discomfort, and patients go home as soon as the procedure is over.
Results from ALMI are generally observable during the following hair growth cycle. They continue to improve with each new cycle. Patients may undergo additional procedures to further boost their follicle activity.
ALMI hair restoration involves the following steps:
- A small amount of body fat is harvested from the body, usually the abdomen. This process uses a small hollow needle and is performed through a tiny incision.
- Blood is then drawn, much like a standard blood test. It is then spun down in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma in the blood.
- The treatment area is numbed with local anesthetic.
- Your dermatologist precisely re-injects both the harvested fat and the platelet-rich plasma into the target areas.
