What is ALMI Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection for Hair Regrowth?

ALMI HairRegrowth 300x223 ALMI Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection for Hair RegrowthALMI Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection for Hair Regrowth is a breakthrough biocellular hair rejuvenation procedure that uses your own body’s regenerative cells and fat tissue to improve the function of hair follicles in the scalp. In a simple comfortable outpatient “lunch-hour” procedure or combined with a hair transplant procedure, these cells and surrounding tissues can be used to support hair follicle function, fight the progression of hair loss and enhance hair growth.

What is the science behind ALMI Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection?

Adipose tissue is made up of lipocytes or fat cells. Adipose or fat tissue is well established as a critical structure in the body for physical support, cushioning as well as metabolism and energy storage. A quick glance at any basic anatomy, physiology and histology text reveals the close proximity of hair follicles to neighboring adipose tissue within the skin. Numerous scientific studies now support the intricate interaction and communication between adipose tissue and hair follicle growth and regeneration. In fact, special proteins called adipose derived growth factors from cultured fat cells have been shown to have a strong influence on the cycling of hair follicles. In addition, hair transplant surgeons have reported that “chubby” hair follicle grafts that contain some adipose tissue below the harvested follicular units are prone to better survival rates and hair growth postoperatively further confirming this symbiotic relationship between adipose tissue and healthy hair growth. Dr. Bauman is one of the first board certified Hair Restoration Physicians in the world to utilize ALMI Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection for hair regrowth.

Like PRP Platelet Rich Plasma, the redistribution of fat or adipose tissue using autologous microfat, nanofat and picofat grafting techniques has been used successfully by surgeons for volumetric and tissue regeneration for cosmetic as well as functional, repair and regenerative purposes in many areas of the body. It is exciting that the science of Biocellular Regenerative Medicine using adipose tissue now can be used to positively impact hair follicle cycling in the treatment of hair loss for patients in the early stages of balding.

 ALMI Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection for Hair RegrowthIs ALMI Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection Similar To PRP Platelet Rich Plasma?

ALMI Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection is performed using PRP at the same time. In fact PRP is the “vehicle” in which ALMI is injected into the scalp. While certainly not a “miracle cure” for someone with extensive hair loss or baldness, in our hands, ALMI Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection for hair regrowth improves significantly on the process of using platelet derived growth factors in PRP. At Bauman Medical, we’ve performed thousands of PRP treatments since 2008 using a highly refined results-oriented protocol for hair growth—measured objectively with the scientific HairCheck device and clinical trials are always proceeding. Dr. Alan Bauman has been instrumental in developing advanced PRP preparation protocols for hair regrowth currently in use by physicians around the world.  In our experience, not all patients are good candidates for PRP or ALMI Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection treatments, so please contact the office for an consultation to see if you qualify.
