ALMI™ for Hair
Hair loss is common and often starts early in life, continuing to accelerate as we age. 70 percent of all men are affected, as well as 40 percent of women. Hair loss has been problematic in the past – painful surgery, ineffective pills and creams and expensive and unnatural hair weaves and pieces. A thick, healthy head of natural hair can restore confidence and create a much more youthful appearance.
The ALMI process is a solution that is pure science working with your body’s restorative processes. It can restore hair loss in as little as two months. Receding hairlines, balding areas, thin hair or loss of volume can all be addressed with the ALMI procedure. It has proven to be a natural solution for many cases of hair loss and it may the perfect solution for your hair loss.
What’s behind the process?
The hallmark of balding is the miniaturization of hair follicles. Clinical studies have established that this miniaturization reduces the ability of stem cells residing in the scalp to convert to the progenitor cells that are required for hair stimulation in the follicle. It also reduces the repeated cycling of this conversion that is so important in follicles continuing to grow healthy strands of hair. ALMI assists in the regeneration of the hair follicle and induces a greater robustness in the recycling of the stem cell to progenitor cell conversion.
How is the ALMI procedure performed?
ALMI directly targets the hair follicles by using your own cells to help stimulate regeneration as your hair progresses through natural growth, shed, and dormancy cycles. This is performed in Dr. Berkowitz office as an outpatient procedure and uses a local anesthesia for the harvest and treatment site.
A small amount of body fat is drawn from the abdomen or leg (called a tumescent liposuction) which requires a very small cannula and a tiny incision. Blood is drawn to extract PRP (platelet-rich plasma) and the treatment area is numbed. The entire process involves minimal discomfort and is completed in an hour or less. Results are usually seen during the next hair growth cycle and continue to improve with each new cycle. Noticeable hair growth increases typically appears in one to two months.
