Conveniently located to serve Beverly Hills,  Hollywood, and  Los Angeles.

Why Is Collagen Stimulation Important?

Encouraging the body to produce more collagen helps patients counter the effects of age and unhealthy habits to restore vibrant skin. Collagen plays many crucial roles in our bodies, but our skin is where we often notice it—or the lack of it—most. As a key protein in healthy, youthful skin, collagen is a dense network of fibers and acts as a structural glue, holding tissues together and giving our skin a firm, full, and nourished appearance.

Unfortunately, the natural aging process causes collagen production to decline starting around the age of 25. Decreased production of this important protein means that our skin becomes less firm and the tightly “glued” connections between skin and other tissues weaken. As this occurs, we start to see wrinkles and sagging skin throughout the body.

Collagen production can also be slowed by certain lifestyle habits. Smoking, excessive sun exposure, and a diet high in sugar can inhibit collagen growth.

TESTIMONIALS

“The only thing graceful about aging is your attitude. I am fascinated by the newest tech advances in skin care and anti aging. Surgical procedures were often the only alternative. Not anymore. In skilled hands, the latest technologies work small miracles (sometimes big miracles!). Stretching the skin is becoming obsolete. Tightening and refining it, while rebuilding the collagen underlay, is the new gold standard. And that is why I love Dr Emer. He is a master of his craft; always up to date with the newest advances. No, he can’t stop the clock. But he can help you reset it. He is a true artist with compassion and integrity. Plus he has the most amazing staff! Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Stars in their own right. A grateful thanks to Michelle, Jennifer and Jillian”

“Dr. Emer is my third dermatologist in Los Angeles and probably the 20th in my life. He is also the BEST one. I’ve suffered from cystic acne and have had a lot of procedures done to my face to correct acne scarring. I went to him right before my wedding to see if he had any new methods or ideas about how to treat my remaining scars and some sagging skin from collagen loss. He didn’t just rely on lasers like most doctors always suggest. He really took the time to understand all the issues going on with my skin and advised me on a combination of procedures, both lasers and injectables. I was dubious but he seemed so confident that he could help me that I trusted him and I don’t regret it. My skin looks amazing! I will never go to anyone else. He’s sweet and caring and on the forefront of all that’s new in skin technology. I highly recommend him.”

“A HUGE thank you to Dr. Emer for taking such amazing care of me this weekend! I had PRP injections and microneedling done over my entire face. The procedures were virtually pain-free as he finessed each area. He really took his time and talked me through the entire procedure, making sure I was completely comfortable and at ease. Just 24 hours after the procedures, I see amazing results! I know that the outcome will even get better as the PRP takes time to build the collagen and elastin. I am so happy and would highly recommend Dr. Emer.”

Injectable Collagen Stimulators

what they are

Dr. Emer is an expert in dermal fillers and highly skilled in delivering Bellafill and Sculptra injections to restore volume and boost collagen growth. Each of these injectables is an effective collagen builder as a singular treatment. To optimize his patients’ results, Dr. Emer has developed methods of pairing Bellafill and Sculptra with complementary treatments to enhance and extend the effects of these advanced dermal fillers.

Bellafill – This injectable filler consists of tiny biodegradable balls suspended in a collagen gel. The injected collagen is gradually absorbed by the body, but the microspheres stay and function to encourage the body to produce collagen for up to five years.

Sculptra – Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) injectable filler that increases volume to achieve aesthetic facial and body contours. Sculptra works beneath the skin to trigger natural collagen production as the body absorbs the tiny PLLA particles. The result is fuller, healthier-looking skin and increased collagen building for up to 24 months.

    How It Works

    Laser Collagen Stimulation Therapy

    Dr. Emer is world-renowned for his use of laser treatments to treat a variety of skin conditions such as sun damage, irregular skin texture, acne scars, and wrinkles. He is trained and experienced with an array of lasers, so he can provide highly customized solutions for his patients.

    Laser treatments stimulate collagen growth by delivering controlled pulses of concentrated light to cause minor thermal damage. The resulting micro-injuries trigger the body to start making collagen and generating healthy skin cells. There are two main types of laser treatments:

    Ablative – Ablative laser procedures have two functions: removing the outermost layer of skin and heating the dermis to promote collagen growth. Popular ablative laser treatments by Dr. Emer include CO2, Deka Dot, and Erbium.Non-ablative

    Non-Ablative – Non-ablative, or non-wounding lasers, are less invasive than ablative treatments but still effectively stimulate collagen production for gradual improvements in skin texture. Dr. Emer frequently performs the non-ablative laser treatments Fraxel and Clear + Brilliant.

    How it works

    Microneedling for Collagen Induction Therapy

    Microneedling is a proven skin rejuvenation method and one of Dr. Emer’s most popular collagen-stimulating treatments. This minimally invasive procedure is done with a handheld device that has a tip made of tiny needles.

    With his advanced knowledge of dermatology and his experience with microneedling, Dr. Emer can apply the microneedles to the skin surface at the optimal depth for each patient’s unique skin. The needle pricks induce pinpoint bleeding in order to trigger the body’s natural healing response, which is to produce more collagen.

    Microneedling can be a great option for patients who want to increase collagen production and treat:

    • Facial scars, including acne scars
    • Fine lines and wrinkles
    • Pigmentation issues
    • Sun damage
    • Enlarged pores

    Microneedling with PRP

    Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments are effective at improving skin quality and reducing inflammation. Dr. Emer often combines this treatment with microneedling to support the collagen-building process and restore healthy, rejuvenated skin.

    Radiofrequency Treatments

    Radiofrequency (RF) treatments incorporate RF energy to heat subdermal tissue. This controlled, focused heat promotes collagen production to rejuvenate and refresh your skin.

    Dr. Emer is experienced with numerous RF devices and will select the option best suited to address your cosmetic concerns and deliver lasting collagen-boosting effects. Dr. Emer is highly trained with the following RF procedures:

    BTL Exilis Ultra

    This unique device pairs RF and ultrasound technologies for noticeable anti-aging effects. It triggers the body to replace and replenish collagen.

    Endymed Intensif

    This fractional RF treatment combines the benefits of microneedling with RF heat. Patients experience the collagen-boosting effects of microneedling in a shorter, more comfortable procedure with no bleeding.

    InMode Fractora

    InMode Fractora is an RF microneedling treatment that resurfaces the skin and stimulates collagen production.

    Morpheus8

    Morpheus8 is a fractional RF microneedling treatment that goes deep under the surface of the skin and can target three layers of tissue. Morpheus8 can reshape fat tissue, making it a good option for many patients who want a contouring effect in addition to collagen stimulation.

    Skinfinity RF

    This RF treatment can deliver immediate skin tightening results, as well as collagen-stimulating effects.

    Thermage

    With Thermage, RF heat targets deep layers of the skin, triggering the body to kickstart collagen production.

    Venus Legacy

    This treatment involves delivery of multi-polar RF energy and pulsed electro-magnetic fields to shrink fat cells and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. Dr. Emer often recommends Venus Legacy to patients who want to smooth out cellulite.

    Venus Viva

    Venus Viva delivers NanoFractional RF energy to heat the deep layers of your skin. In Dr. Emer’s hands, this device allows for precise application of microneedles to improve the texture of your skin and promote collagen regeneration.

    Red LED Light Therapy

    Red LED light therapy can initiate the regrowth of elastin and collagen. It also improves the skin’s ability to absorb nutrients and repair damaged cells. Dr. Emer often recommends red LED light therapy before and after other collagen stimulating treatments to maximize results.

    Thread Lifting

    Thread lifts encourage collagen production and provide instant lifting and tightening of the skin. With thread lifting, Dr. Emer performs an advanced technique with threads made of dissolvable sutures. Over the months following a thread lifting treatment, the body absorbs the threads as new collagen is formed to lift the skin.

    Thread lifting requires precise technique and artistic sensibility, which is why Dr. Emer is able to achieve such natural-looking enhancements for his patients. Dr. Emer is skilled in thread lifting with NovaThreads and Silhouette InstaLift:

    NovaThreads – NovaThreads resorbable suture threads are made of barbed polydioxanone (PDO). Dr. Emer frequently uses NovaThreads to lift and enhance the cheeks, jawline, and neck.

    Silhouette InstaLift – Silhouette InstaLift threads have bidirectional cones made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) and poly-L-glycolic acid (PLGA). The cones trigger collagen production and skin tightening over time.

    Ultherapy

    Ultherapy employs ultrasound energy to generate heat that Dr. Emer can control and direct to activate collagen production. In his vast experience, Dr. Emer has found that this non-invasive treatment is particularly effective at achieving advanced, long-term sagging prevention and improvement in skin elasticity when used in combination with complementary collagen-stimulating treatments.
