ALMI – Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection

Surprising to some, the rate of collagen production slows in the mid-late 20’s, with up to 20% of collagen being lost by age 40. The changing rate of collagen production coupled with other factors such as weight loss and genetics, result in a loss of volume in the face. Structural support decreases, and skin begins to lose its bright, youthful appearance.

As an all-natural procedure using an individual’s own tissues, ALMI (autologous lipocyte micronized injection) is a complete rejuvenation method that is proven to restore volume, texture and skin tone. Because ALMI is performed in a simple, outpatient setting in less than an hour, with minimal downtime, it has quickly become a revolutionary way to turn back the clock.

To better understand, ALMI involves using the patient’s own blood and harvesting its fat content, which is then mechanically micronized, leaving a critical portion of cells referred to as autologous cellular matrix (ACM). This substance, which is somewhat watery, becomes a smooth, safe injectable containing progenitor cells and potential for regenerative growth. When injected into the face, the body’s immune response is stimulated to produce platelets, fibroblasts, collagen and elastin to regenerate the areas injected. Essentially, the body’s own natural healing properties are called into action to reverse the effects of aging.

PRP Regenerative Medicine – Facial Rejuvenation

The use of platelet rich plasma (PRP) as a way to regenerate dry, tired and aging skin is perhaps the most innovative non-surgical approach to facial rejuvenation. Taking one’s own blood plasma, PRP is a highly concentrated form of platelets that contain regenerative healing properties. When injected into the face, these properties attend to specific areas by stimulating growth factors, fibroblasts, collagen, keratin and elastin tissues. This is all in an effort to “heal” these areas. The result is a refreshed look, as the visible effects of wrinkles disappear, and scarring is dramatically reduced.

As modern medicine, platelet rich plasma (PRP) is used to treat forehead lines, frown lines, brow shaping, cheek definition, crow’s feet, circles around eyes, lip wrinkles, chin creasing, mouth frown, accordion lines, jawline and marionette lines. Individuals can expect noticeable changes in skin tone and texture within 3 weeks, with continuous improvements noted over the next 8 months to one year. This is as collagen and keratin continue to develop beneath the skin’s surface.

I am absolutely ecstatic about my results!!!!!! I am a model and actress as well as an occasional TV host. I have been performing upkeep for my face and lips in Beverly Hills for years and I was convinced I was with the most talented and famous surgeons and dermatologists, but boy was I wrong! One visit with Dr. Talei and my life has changed. He clearly and quickly explained the slow imbalance which had happened in my lips and face over time and we planned for a lip lift procedure. I did this under local anesthesia with no pain at all! He's the ONLY surgeon who can do this with NO scarring. All other doctors I reviewed had scars on at least half their patients. Now all of my friends in plastic surgery and fashion compliment me much more and they have no idea what I had done. This man is AMAZING!!!!

I went to Dr Talei for under eye filler using Restylane. Dr Talei was very thorough with each step in the process and made me feel very comfortable. The procedure was quick and painless! My under eyes have always been an insecurity for me and when I looked in the mirror after he was done I was beyond impressed with his work. I felt more confident and beautiful. I was able to leave his office and go right back to work! I highly recommend Dr Talei. He's friendly, has a lovely staff and truly cares about making his patients happy.

My experience with Dr. Ben Talei was very positive. He answered all my questions prior to the procedure and made me feel very comfortable. Before meeting him, I had heard all the rave about his work, and I am so glad I went through with the visit. I was very insecure with my "eleven" deep wrinkles in between my eyebrows, he was very fast and clean with this procedure and I couldn't be more grateful for this minor adjustment that has brought me a major confidence boost. Thank you Dr. Talei

He is passionate about his work and this passion shows in the exceptionally high standard of care that he provides to his patients (both in his practice and in his humanitarian work). You’re in good hands with Ben and his staff!

I used to see Dr Ben in New York and now I fly to LA to see him. I have no room for error and he is absolutely the only plastic surgeon I trust. Everyone else seems to be out for money. Every time I'm in his waiting room all I hear is praises and how he's the greatest. I completely agree. He's the most talented surgeon I've ever seen. It's worth the flight

I have worked in health care in Los Angeles for over 20 years and have always hesitated in referring plastic surgeons to my clients. Dr. Ben Talei, MD is in a class of his own. I am so pleased to be able to refer to Dr. Talei without hesitation, and consistently receive outstanding feedback on him. Dr. Talei brings a wealth of experience and exceptional skill, along with cutting edge techniques to his practice. Not only does Dr. Talei excel in every facet of care, but he has also cultivated a warm, kind and patient bedside manner that is second to none. Dr. Talei's office is a dynamic patient focused environment, I urge you to visit him!
