ALMI™ Hair Treatment
Have you ever felt that your hair loss made you noticeably different than other men, that it was a problem that set you apart from others?
The fact is that two-thirds of all men in America experience hair loss to some degree by the age of thirty-five, and the percentage only goes up as they age. By the age of fifty, about 85 percent of all men have lost a significant amount of hair.
However, the fact that this problem may be more common than you thought doesn’t mean that you have to like it – or that you have to accept it. Michigan Hair Restoration is here to help you, and one of the services we’re excited to offer you is ALMI Hair Restoration.
What is Different About ALMI?
The ALMI procedure draws on cutting-edge science to provide an innovative and natural approach to hair restoration that helps your body re-grow hair. It’s miles apart from grafts or weaves that can result in an unnatural appearance that can at times be even more distracting than hair loss.
ALMI gets back to basics. Your hair grows from the hair follicles in your skin. These follicles are actually organs made up of multiple types of cells, each with different functions. The hair they create can help insulate against extremes of heat or cold, or provide some degree of protection from UV radiation.
Over the millennia, hair has also come to be a defining feature of human appearance. Balding, an unwanted barrier to what is generally considered to be an ideal appearance, occurs when hair follicles shrink, or “miniaturize” and the follicle loses its ability to grow new hair.
The ALMI treatment is designed to address this situation using the body’s own regenerative resources.
How is ALMI Treatment Done?
ALMI is part of a new generation of therapies that use stem cells – cells with a unique ability to indefinitely continue to divide or self-renew. New applications of stem cell therapy are being developed and delivered for a range of health issues, from bone marrow transplants to regenerating cartilage in joints.
For the ALMI procedure, a small amount of fat is taken from your abdomen or flank. Blood is drawn and put in a centrifuge to create “protein rich plasma” (PRP). The PRP and the harvested fat are injected in the scalp to reactivate hair follicles and stimulate natural hair growth.
