Enjoy hair restoration with ALMI treatment

At Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics, we see a lot of patients who are unhappy with hair thinning and loss associated with aging and other conditions. We are pleased to offer reliable solutions for patient consideration, including the ALMI hair restoration process. The ALMI process is highly desirable because it allows Dr. Jack Bertolino to regenerate hair follicles that are otherwise de-activated and restore hair without undergoing surgical interventions and dealing with the side effects of medications or topicals. Instead, this treatment combines two methodologies including platelet-rich plasma and fat transfer to achieve thicker hair.

How does it work?

The ALMI hair restoration technique extracts stromal and stem cells from another area of the body, typically the abdomen, and injects them into the scalp as a way of triggering hair regrowth and cellular regeneration. By doing this, patients can experience hair thickness, strength, volume, and overall growth.

What to expect during your procedure

During the ALMI hair restoration procedure, the doctor will first take the extractions from an easily accessible area of the body before reinjecting the cells directly into the scalp. The entire procedure from start to finish takes less than 45 minutes to complete, and patients do not require any downtime or healing from the treatment. Because the procedure does not involve the injection of manmade materials or medication, there are no side effects to the procedure. Once the treatment has been done, patients will begin to notice the growth of hair in areas that were once unable to produce hair. This may be seen as early as one month after treatment. While one treatment can provide some results, it is best to have multiple procedures performed over time for optimum results.

What’s Hair Restoration?

Whether you’re a male or a female, there’s something to be said about having a full head of hair. After all, why would Chip Gaines always brag about his hair on Fixer Upper? However, although some people are blessed to never lose a hair on their head, there are others who start to show signs of hair loss before they ever even get their first gray hair. If you are suffering from thinning hair, Dr. Jack Bertolino at Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics has a hair restoration solution for you to consider. Let’s take a closer look.

How Does It Work?

Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP has really taken the skincare world by storm because of the popular vampire facial procedure. However, PRP can also be sued to help restore thinning hair as well. During this process, we will take blood from one part of your body and then extract the plasma from it. Once we have extracted the plasma, we will then place it on your scalp and leave it on for about 24 hours without touching it or watching it. In some instances, we may also use the Omnilux red LED light which is a device that strengthens follicles and promotes hair growth.

How Often Do I Have to Get it Done?

Although results vary from patient to patient, we typically require three PRP treatments and eight red light treatments over the span of three months. During your initial consultation, however, we will be able to better determine how many treatment plans will be needed for you to get the full results.

If your hair is thinning, hair plugs or implants aren’t your only option. To learn more about Platelet Rich Plasma hair restoration, schedule a consultation at our Buffalo office today: (716) 633-6100.
