Microneedling is a safe and effective non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment that can help reduce signs of wrinkles, diminish scarring and sun spots, and tighten loose or sagging skin. Dr. Jason Emer, a skincare pioneer and board-certified dermatologist, specializes in microneedling particularly for acne scarring, anti-aging and hyperpigmentation.
Safe for all skin types, microneedling should be part of all patients’ maintenance treatment regimen for collagen production and overall rejuvenation.
WITH DR. EMER
Dr. Jason Emer is an expert in acne scar treatments. He is a specialist dermatologist in Beverly Hills, California. You will be amazed to see microneedling before and after treatments performed by him. He is well known for his treatment of acne scarring, where he uses radiofrequency technology combined with microneedling which is very effective in reducing the appearance of acne scars.
Traditionally in the past lasers have been the primary form of rejuvenating the skin along with deep chemical peels on the face. Newer technologies with microneedling and microneedling with radio frequency can give improvements in the skin in terms of pores, scars, complexion and skin tone, and even skin tightening more than we’ve ever seen before with less risk.
HOW DOES MICRONEEDLING TRANSFORM YOUR SKIN?
Kickstarts collagen production – In aging, the production of collagen, the body’s age-reversing protein compound that helps seal in moisture and ensures a smooth, radiant complexion, slows down. Microneedling causes controlled trauma, which triggers the body’s natural wound-healing response and creates an increase in collagen production – and a youthful glow.
Helps correct facial scarring – Dr. Emer is renowned for the way he uses microneedling as part of his approach in treating acne scars. Many of his patients have experienced significant improvement to their acne scars with no negative side effects.
Other types of skin corrections – Microneedling can actually be performed head-to-toe and on all skin types to address pigmentation issues, repair sun damage, reduce the appearance of pores and tighten the skin.
Speeds up the absorption of topical serums – After a microneedling session, the skin is more susceptible to the absorption of serums, nutrients, antioxidants and vitamins, which is super beneficial when it comes to fighting off free radical damage from the environment and the stress of aging.
Helps reduce wrinkles and fine lines – Sagging, wrinkled skin can be revitalized through microneedling, while fine lines, creases and folds can be gently reversed. What’s more, microneedling can be more cost-effective than some laser and light treatments, and can be performed more frequently.
Dr. Jason Emer, a board-certified dermatologist and an expert in facial and body rejuvenation from Beverly Hills/Los Angeles, CA, uses PRP post laser treatment with microneedling to help the skin build collagen, reduce inflammation, and shorten healing time.
The PRP is harvested from the patient’s own blood and is applied topically to the skin. The PRP contains growth factors that help the skin rebuild while reducing inflammation and redness.
This treatment is Dr. Emer’s go-to treatment for acne scar patients who have darker skin tones. Because this treatment combines radio frequency and microneedling, it is highly effective in reducing the appearance of acne scars by stimulating new collagen and by breaking up scar tissue.

Right For You?
DR. EMER’S MICRONEEDLING CAN HELP ALMOST ANYONE
Most all skin types are excellent candidates for microneedling treatments, regardless of age. The treatment aids the skin in building new tissue, so patients with both thick and thin skin can experience improvement in skin texture. Before undergoing any procedure, patients should be free of any skin infections to prevent worsening due to the skin being pierced. Individuals with scars from acne or injury are also good candidates for this treatment to remodel the scar tissue.
What to Expect
Step Inside Dr. Emer’s Process
Using a portable handheld device, Dr. Emer expertly needles the treatment areas to a predetermined depth based on the concerns with miniature needles, triggering fine pinpoint bleeding which stimulates new collagen. Pinpoint bleeding is important because this indicates the needles are reaching the depth where collagen production occurs in the skin.
Dr. Emer also uses microneedling as a post-laser treatment, in combination with topical cosmeceuticals, natural growth factors, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cells (Acell). This revolutionary, combination approach has been shown to improve outcomes, activate healing, reduce redness and assist with product absorption.
Dr. Emer has treated Adam over the last 8 months with a combination of lasers like Clear + Brilliant, Microneedling with PRP and Accutane, an oral medication used to treat severe nodular acne.
