ALMI – Anti Aging Buffalo NY

New Life Changing Regenerative Medicine

When it comes to trends, Dr. Jack Bertolino has seen it all and been part of it all as well. One of the most popular trends right now in the cosmetic industry is regenerative medicine. What is regenerative medicine and what are the new trends that we are seeing? Let’s take a closer look.

What’s Regenerative Medicine?

Typically in the past, we have used regenerative medicine like platelet-rich plasma to help patients with a variety of different issues including sexual issues like vaginal dryness and erectile dysfunction, as well as loss of hair. The great thing about platelet-rich plasma is that it involves using your own protein enriched plasma to help stimulate the growth of stem cells. With platelet rich plasma alone, we have seen great results amongst all of our patients, but typically we also combine it with ALMI which takes additional stem cells from your fat to help promote even more hair growth.

How Is Amniotic Fluid Used?

Although we have seen PRP on its own be effective and we have also seen a lot of success with PRP combined with ALMI, we are introducing patients to a new form of regenerative medicine: amniotic fluid. By mixing FDA approved amniotic fluid with PRP, it helps to promote follicular growth in the hair follicle, increase vascularity for erectile issues in aging men, and promote vascularity for dryness and discomfort in the aging female.

Here at Smooth Solutions, Dr. Jack Bertolino prides himself on providing people not only in Western New York but all across the country, with new, innovative solutions to promote health and well being. If you are interested in learning more about amniotic fluid as part of our new regenerative treatment, schedule your consultation at our Williamsville office and call us at (716) 633-6100.

ALMI for Collagen Induction? What Does It Mean

Did you know that by the time you hit your 40’s you will start to lose about 20% of the collagen in your skin? And by the time you hit your 50’s you will experience about a 30% loss of collagen which means that the more you age, the more collagen you are going to lose and the more fine lines and wrinkles you are going to gain. So, what can you do to help restore the collagen in your skin and get a more youthful complexion? Let’s take a closer look at one procedure that is taking our patients skin by storm: ALMI.

What Is ALMI?

ALMI may sound like the name of someone’s alma mater, but it actually stands for Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection. This state of the art procedure uses a person’s own tissue and cells to help renew and restore damaged tissues and volume loss; leaving you with more collagen in the process. Specifically, at Jack Bertolino’s office, we combine the use of a patient’s fat that broken into nanoparticles with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).

What Is PRP?

We’ve discussed PRP on our blog before but because it’s so popular, let’s talk about it again. PRP is a procedure that involves extracting the plasma from your blood and then either placing it on your skin by itself or using microneedling beforehand to help the PRP penetrate deeper into the skin. Because your plasma has so many proteins in it, it helps to regenerate collagen and volume in the skin.

Here at our office, Jack Bertolino has a variety of different anti-aging procedures and techniques that can be used to help restore volume and collagen in your skin. If you want to learn a little bit more about ALMI and other anti-aging procedures, contact our Williamsville office and call us at (716) 633-6100.

What’s the Deal With ALMI?

ALMI isn’t just another acronym to throw by the wayside. ALMI or autologous lipocyte micronized injection is a unique procedure that we use at Dr. Jack Bertolino’s office to treat a variety of concerns including sexual wellness, hand rejuvenation, facial rejuvenation, hair rejuvenation, and pain management. So, what’s up with the hype behind this treatment and what makes it so unique? Let’s take a closer look.

What’s the Big Deal?

If you are the type of patient who watches what you put in your body and on your body, then you will want to learn more about ALMI. ALMI uses your body’s tissues to restore tone, volume, and texture. This all-natural procedure uses your platelet-rich plasma from your blood to help change your life for the better. Plus, because it’s non-invasive, you won’t have to worry about any downtime or recovery. In fact, each session takes an average of 45 minutes long which means that you can come in on your lunch break to get it done and go right back to work.

Platelet-rich plasma or PRP contains hundreds of proteins which help to promote the healing process in your body to help with pain management, fine lines and wrinkles, collagen production, hair growth, and more. Once the plasma is extracted from your blood, we will combine it with adipose cells and their stem and stromal cell components, and inject it into the afflicted tissues. Once the injections have been done, ALMI is proven to help give patients real, all-natural results.

If you suffer from chronic pain, collagen loss, joint pain, hair loss, or have problems with your sexual wellness; then it may be time to consider ALMI. Are you ready to learn more? Schedule your consultation at our office today: (716) 633-6100.
