What ALMI does
The key to regenerating a more youthful look is to restore the volume, texture, tone and elasticity of collagen, a protein that literally hold the body together. You can think of collagen as the scaffolding that gives your skin strength and elasticity. As you age, this “scaffolding” begins to collapse, causing depressions in the epidermis that lead to wrinkles and sagging skin.
The ALMI procedure involves injecting the patient’s micronized fat and blood platelets – painlessly extracted – into the target area, to help repair aging collagen.

How much ALMI injection is needed to start the regeneration process?
During a consultation, the patient will sit down with Dr. Berkowitz and together assess the desired outcome and the areas that would be best addressed to achieve it. Since the process uses the patient’s own viable tissue, there is no limit to how much can be harvested for the ALMI procedure. It is all based on target areas and how much added tissue is required to produce an optimum result.
How long do the results last?
Longevity is very subjective but results are generally long-lasting. Regeneration can continue to improve conditions over time. Numerous testimonials remark upon a noticeable natural glow that looks natural.
What problem areas can the ALMI procedure address?
ALMI has been developed to address the signs of aging and where possible, reverse them.
Everyone has their own list of needs, but here are some of the most common ones:
- Face and hand wrinkles. Both deep and fine.
- Rough skin texture. Collagen loss creates porous, dimpled surfaces in the skin.
- Sallow skin tone. This is the “healthy glow” that immediately communicates vitality.
- Loss of skin firmness and elasticity.
- Eliminating sun spots and other sun damage.
