HOW CAN I ACHIEVE NATURAL-LOOKING, LONG-LASTING RESULTS WITH NON-SURGICAL FAT REDUCTION AND SKIN TIGHTENING?
The secret to tightening those stubborn, concentrated pockets of unwanted fat, cellulite, and sagging skin and achieving more contour and definition is understanding the benefits of tailored combination treatments, preventative care, and continued maintenance.
A board-certified dermatologic surgeon and a true pioneer in revolutionary, non-surgical fat reduction and skin tightening procedures, Dr. Jason Emer in Beverly Hills applies both his artistic vision and his scientific expertise to develop a patient-specific treatment and maintenance plan that incorporates a customized combination of non-invasive thermal energy, radiofrequency and microfocused ultrasound devices, shockwave and vibrational therapy, and mesotherapy (injectable fat reducers) to achieve natural, lasting results and reverse the signs of aging.
For patients looking to avoid surgical intervention to obtain a slimmer, tighter figure and a contoured musculature, a full body transformation is now attainable in the hands of Dr. Emer, who possesses the skill, unparalleled finesse, and state-of-the-art technologies to provide stunning skin tightening and fat reduction enhancements with minimal downtime.
WHAT IS VANQUISH?
When used in combination, Coolsculpting and Vanquish form “Fire & Ice,” a single-day, large-area treatment that achieves 10-15% more fat removal and is highly effective on stubborn areas that are unresponsive to diet and exercise.
Dr. Emer follows this treatment with shockwave and vibration therapies to accelerate the healing process, minimize downtime, improve fat reduction, and ensure that all damaged fat cells are removed post-treatment.
An authority in tailored combination procedures, Dr. Emer will often pair “Fire & Ice” with radiofrequency treatments to stimulate additional fat reduction and with Mesotherapy (injectable fat reducers) to target concentrated areas of fat such as the neck, knees, and bra and back roll; achieve jaw and neck contouring; and address post-liposuction indentations or irregularities.
Impacting both men and women, cellulite often occurs in the hips, buttocks or thighs and is characterized by lumpy, dimpled, and wavy skin. While there is no cure for cellulite, board-certified dermatologic surgeon Dr. Jason Emer in West Hollywood employs multiple methods of cellulite reduction—and counsels all of his patients in continued maintenance and cellulite prevention. The process begins with a consultation with Dr. Emer, in which he identifies all ripples, dimples, bumps and waves on the skin to create a roadmap of the procedure.
WHAT IS RADIOFREQUENCY SKIN TIGHTENING?
A renowned authority in skin tightening and anti-aging techniques, Dr. Emer understands that the true advantage of radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening is prevention. Rather than providing immediate face or neck lifting, RF energy slows down and reverses the aging process, allowing you to age more slowly, naturally—and more youthfully—and averting the need for early surgical interventions. For many of Dr. Emer’s longtime patients, enhanced monthly facial treatments paired with RF skin tightening is the secret to anti-aging and smooth, radiant skin.
WHAT IS Thermage?
Dr. Emer uses state-of-the-art RF skin tightening devices like Thermage to improve skin laxity on the eyes, neck, chest, arms, stomach, thighs and knees. By safely heating the skin at high temperatures, burning unwanted fat and stimulating collagen production, RF skin tightening can reduce loose, drooping, sagging, crepey, or wrinkly skin. This wake-up call for your skin is a beloved biannual treatment for patients looking for visible improvement in skin quality with minimal downtime and without “noticeable enhancements.”
WHAT IS CELLFINA?
As a primary treatment for cellulite and large dimples, Dr. Emer utilizes Cellfina, a motorized, minimally invasive subcision device that penetrates the skin to cut cellulite bands and disrupt any scars and tissue tugging on the skin. Cellfina may be used in combination with Sculptra to achieve large-area collagen production—as well as with Renuva fat and Bellafill injections to combat stubborn, individual dimples.
Following these treatments, Dr. Emer incorporates several non-invasive treatments to enhance the outcome of the procedure: ultrasound technology to disrupt connective tissue adhesions; radiofrequency and shockwave therapy treatments to promote skin tightening such as called Cellutone, Evive or Z wave, which all deliver high-frequency vibrations to enhance micro-circulation and oxygen supply in the affected area, thereby breaking up the fat cells, stimulating blood flow, tightening the skin, and improving muscle definition. Because there is no cure for cellulite, Dr. Emer creates a personalized maintenance schedule for his patients to help maintain a smooth, youthful appearance.
HOW CAN FAT REDUCTION AND SKIN
TIGHTENING BE ACHIEVED WITH INJECTABLES?
Whether used independently or in combination with radiofrequency, ultrasound and shockwave therapy procedures, injectables can provide anti-aging benefits and rejuvenated skin through collagen stimulation.
Sculptra, a poly-L-lactic acid comprised of suture material, is a natural collagen stimulator often used in combination with fillers and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to enhance facial features, lift tissue, tighten the skin, improve wrinkles and skin tone, reduce cellulite, and reverse or prevent the aging process. For optimal results, Sculptra injections are administered in a series of treatments with continued maintenance.
For patients with localized areas of fat looking to avoid liposuction, Dr. Emer often uses injectable fat reducers, including Kybella and Lipodissolve, which can be customized to those specific areas and combined with additional skin tightening treatments, fillers, and thread lifting to achieve facial and body contouring.
Similarly, through Mesotherapy—a more potent treatment option that is effective in the bra roll, buttock roll, knee and abdominal areas—Dr. Emer will often create a customized combination of hyaluronic acids, vitamins, fillers and neuromodulators and inject it into any problem areas to hydrate the skin, shrink the pores, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
What Is INTERNAL “SHRINK WRAP” SKIN TIGHTENING?
For patients with skin sagging and loose skin tissue—commonly occurring in the face, neck, jowls, stomach, arms, knees, thighs, or buttock roll—minimally invasive, internal skin tightening procedures can provide not only skin tightening and lifting but also enhanced contouring and improved definition. ThermiRF and InMode FaceTite/BodyTite delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat the undersurface of the skin, prompting a “shrink wrap” effect and resulting in a smoother skin texture, cellulite reduction, and improved lines and wrinkles. Renuvion (or J-Plasma) also uses RF plasma energy to heat and tighten the skin internally while simultaneously delivering helium for an immediate cooling effect.
Allowing for high temperatures to tighten skin without putting the skin at risk for burns or scars. All of these state-of-the-art devices can be paired with Hi-Definition Liposuction for more pronounced skin tightening and face or body defining. A renowned veteran in non-surgical fat reduction and skin tightening procedures, Dr. Emer customizes both short-term and long-term treatment plans to suit your unique needs and produce the optimal outcome. For patients with a significant amount of loose or sagging skin, Dr. Emer and his skilled team of plastic surgeons can perform a safe and effective skin removal surgery. Following skin removal procedures, Dr. Emer uses energy-based skin tightening devices to maintain and enhance the results achieved through surgery.
