Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection or ALMI is a next-generation procedure that utilizes the power of your own stem cell rich adipose tissue along with platelet rich plasma (PRP) to rejuvenate the skin in your hands. This non-surgical med spa procedure called ALMI is a safe and effective way to re-volumize the skin in the hands to make them appear smoother and more youthful.
Dr. Q Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Quardt (Dr. Q) provides ALMI injectable treatment to patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and surrounding locations.
The ALMI hand rejuvenation treatment offers a number of benefits, including:
- Reduction of wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin in the hands
- Restoration of volume and a healthy glow in the hands
- 100% natural treatment involving the use of your own body tissue and growth factors
- No risk or adverse allergic response because of autologous tissue
- Completely non-surgical with minimal to no downtime
- Results are more sustainable than most types of dermal fillers
How Does ALMI Hand Rejuvenation Work?
The complete ALMI hand rejuvenation procedure can be comfortably performed at a qualified med spa. Treatment for both hands may be completed in about one to two hours. The ALMI treatment provider will first draw a small amount of fat cells from an area of your body where surplus fat tissue is available (such as, thighs, flanks, or abdomen).
This fat removal process can be performed using tumescent liposuction, which only involves the use of local anesthesia. Your provider will then process the donor cells to purify them so that they contain the optimize volume of stem cells for successful skin rejuvenation in your hands.
The provider may also draw a tiny amount of blood to extract PRP growth factors, which can be infused along with ALMI to trigger new collagen growth in the hand tissue. Following the treatment, you can simply return to your workplace or home and continue with your regular daily activities.
Results with ALMI
Following the ALMI treatment session, you can see noticeable hand rejuvenation results almost immediately. These results will continue to build and improve over time as ALMI growth factors stimulate the formation of new collagen and elastin fibers. This will create volumizing in the thinning hand skin from within, and create a smoother, more natural looking appearance of your hands.
ALMI hand rejuvenation med spa injectable treatment will create significantly longer lasting results than regular soft tissue fillers and volumizers. With dermal fillers, the results may sustain anywhere from six to 18 months (depending on the type of filler), but with ALMI the longevity of results will be much better because collagen stimulation is involved.
According to researchers, ALMI results may last from two to five years, and often continue to improve with the passage of time. However, the results may vary depending on the patient’s age and degree of skin laxity in the hands.
