Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection (ALMI) in Asheville, NC
As you age, your body undergoes many changes. For example, the collagen production in your skin slows down as you get older, and as a result, you lose skin volume and structural support. This loss of collagen - as well as other age-related changes like hair loss - can make you look older than you really are and affect your self-esteem. Thankfully, there is a revolutionary rejuvenation procedure available that may be able to help.
Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection (ALMI) is a treatment that uses your own tissues to try and restore volume, texture, and tone to your skin, as well as repair and restore damaged tissue in other parts of the body, such as the scalp and reproductive organs.

What Is ALMI?
An Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection is a non-surgical treatment used to try to provide patients who have lost volume and structural support in their skin with complete rejuvenation and natural looking results. It does so by using the stem cells found in your own flanks or abdominal fat tissue, which have the unique ability to become other tissue cells.
ALMI takes less than 45 minutes to complete, with minimal-to-no downtime. With ALMI, you may be able to remove sun spots and wrinkles, as well as improve your skin:
ALMI can also be used to treat the sexual organs with bio-cellular therapy, which uses stem and stromal (connective tissue) cells with a small volume of blood platelets. When combined, they are injected into the treatment area to try and encourage healing and rejuvenation.
Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection (ALMI) for Hair Regrowth
Besides helping to rejuvenate skin, Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection may be able to reverse hair loss. Studies have shown that when the stem cells in one's head stop turning into progenitor cells, hair follicle regrowth slows, resulting in baldness. Once injected, it is thought that the stem cells from your fat tissue have the ability to repair and re-activate dormant follicles. It is also believed that - thanks to ALMI - your resulting hair growth may be stronger and more robust than before.
hildbirth, aging and menopause can cause a number of conditions related to vaginal health. ALMI FemShot uses bio-cellular therapy to try and repair/regenerate vaginal tissues to improve comfort and function.
Some research suggests that ALMI FemShot can help improve a variety of conditions related to vaginal health, including:
- Signs of childbirth and aging
- Tone, flexibility, and shape
- Dryness, itchiness, and pain
- Urine leaks (incontinence)
- Painful intercourse
Though results may vary, patients may expect to see results within a few days of receiving treatment. For others, it may take months to see optimal results.
There are also many age-sensitive conditions that can affect penis function and cause other reproductive health issues. As with the FemShot, the ALMI MenShot uses bio-cellular therapy to try and improve comfort and function. Some of the conditions that the ALMI MenShot may be able to improve include:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Penis enlargement
- Curved, painful erections (Peyronie's)
- Urine leaks (incontinence)
- Painful intercourse
As is true for the FemShot, results may vary. Some patients may see results within a few days, while others will see results after a few months.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is An Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection (ALMI)?
ALMI is a non-surgical treatment that utilizes injections of stem cells from autologous lipocytes (fat-storing cells from your own body) to repair and rejuvenate inactive tissues and treat a number of different conditions.
How Does ALMI Work?
Stem cells have the unique ability to become different tissues. When injected into areas of the body that need repair or rejuvenation, they encourage the body to rebuild itself.
What is Bio-Cellular Therapy?
Bio-cellular therapy uses a small amount of stem and stromal (connective tissue) cells with a small volume of blood platelets. These are combined together and injected into the treatment area. Due to the healing properties of platelets and the unique abilities of stem cells, these injections can encourage healing and rejuvenation.
What Is an Autologous Stem Cell Transplant?
Autologous stem cells are stem cells taken from your own body. During an autologous stem cell treatment, these stem cells are re-injected into an area of your body that needs rejuvenation and healing.
