INNOVATOR + SCIENTIST + ARTIST
For more than a decade, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jason Emer has made collagen stimulators a foundation of his trademark combination skin rejuvenation therapies. By pairing complementary procedures with collagen-boosting treatments, Dr. Emer is able to provide the best collagen stimulation therapy available in his Beverly Hills office.
Does Collagen Stimulation Therapy Work?
Collagen stimulation is beneficial for healthy adult patients of all ages and skin types. Since it is the foundation of youthful skin, Dr. Emer incorporates collagen stimulation into preventative skincare protocols, targeted treatments to reverse significant signs of aging, and facial and body sculpting.
To find out how collagen stimulation therapy can help you achieve smoother and more radiant skin, you will want to meet with Dr. Emer for a consultation. His advanced knowledge of collagen-boosting techniques allows him to pinpoint the most effective approach for your specific treatment goals.
What Are Collagen Stimulation Treatments?
As a scientific-minded, top cosmetic dermatologist, Dr. Emer is dedicated to staying current with new technologies and devices that support the natural collagen-building process. Beyond that, he continues to develop innovative methods of pairing cosmetic treatments with collagen stimulation therapy, so he can achieve incredible results for his patients.
Depending on your cosmetic concerns, your skin type, and your overall goals for treatment, Dr. Emer will formulate the optimal approach to collagen stimulation and comprehensive skin rejuvenation for you.
He often recommends a customized combination of the following collagen-stimulating therapies:
- Laser treatments
- Radiofrequency (RF) device treatments
- Red LED light therapy
- Thread lifting
- Ultrasound therapy
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.
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.
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 is an RF microneedling treatment that resurfaces the skin and stimulates collagen production.
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.
This RF treatment can deliver immediate skin tightening results, as well as collagen-stimulating effects.
With Thermage, RF heat targets deep layers of the skin, triggering the body to kickstart collagen production.
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 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.
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 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.
How Much Does Collagen Stimulation Therapy Cost?
The price of collagen stimulation therapy varies depending on your unique treatment plan. Dr. Emer will formulate a specific protocol for you based on your skin type, medical history, and overall treatment goals. You will receive detailed information regarding all costs associated with your skin rejuvenation treatment prior to scheduling any procedures.
