At Cosmetique Aesthetics, we truly believe that we are the best skin professionals. For many Americans, it is difficult to see what others can do for you in terms of your natural beauty. Fortunately, there are treatments available to enhance the features you were born with and re-establish that youthful appearance you used to know.
ALMI is an all-natural skin rejuvenation technique that uses your own cells to improve volume, minimize scars, and restore skin tone and skin texture. Here’s what you should know about ALMI and what it can do for you.
Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection, or ALMI, is the procedure most preferred by our own Dr. Sarshad, here at Cosmetique Aesthetics. It is a minimally invasive fat grafting treatment, which plumps and fills with your own natural tissue. This is a healthy alternative to injecting synthetic fillers and has a greater success rate because your body is less likely to reject its own cells.
Like synthetic injections, ALMI fills sagging, thin, or creased tissue to volumize portions of your face which have lost elasticity with age. This smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, plumps lips, and improves the appearance of your skin tone and texture.
Some of the most common treatment zones for ALMI include:
Smile Lines – The nasolabial folds that crease from nose to lips deepen with age. ALMI fills these grooves to provide a youthful glow.
Vertical Lip Lines – When you purse your lips and tiny wrinkles appear below and above, these are your vertical lip lines. As you age, these lines stop disappearing after using a straw or blowing a kiss. ALMI helps smooth these lines away.
Vermilion Border – The outer edges of your lips is your vermillion border. With age, the color and tissue fade and reduce. ALMI plumps these areas up for noticeably kissable lips.
Marionette Lines – The oral commissures that run from lip to chin create lines like a marionette puppet. It also increases the appearance of jowls. ALMI fills the creases and smooths these lines away.
Cheek Volume – Age brushes away the youthful blush of plump cheeks. With age, the tissue here may begin to sag and even look sunken. ALMI plumps the area back up, giving you a blast from the past in terms of your new youthful appearance.
Scars – Scars from scrapes and pockmarks can be filed to create a smoother, flawless complexion.
Chin and Jaw Line – As skin sags, it all goes with the directional pull of gravity, causing your chin and jawline to appear droopy. ALMI can reinstall volume to these areas, lifting sagging skin for a cleaner jawline.
ALMI results are easily noticeable directly after treatment. The entire treatment only requires about 45-minutes of your time with a minimal recovery time following the procedure. Unlike traditional surgical treatments, which leave you down and out for days, or sometimes weeks, ALMI gets you back to real life quickly.
