Laser Dermatology With Dr. Jason Emer

What is the best treatment for enlarged pores?

With vast, invaluable experience in the treatment of a multitude of skin conditions, Beverly Hills cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Jason Emer believes that the optimal treatment to reduce or shrink pores is monthly or bi-monthly facials, extractions, peels, and microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and growth factors in the hands of his skilled, in-house West Hollywood aestheticians.

For further improvement, ongoing maintenance and pore prevention, Dr. Emer crafts a customized treatment plan incorporating non-ablative fractional lasers, fractional radiofrequency (RF) devices, the carbon dioxide-based CO2 or Erbium ablative lasers for facial resurfacing, YAG lasers for skin revitalization, the Aquagold Fine Touch microneedling technology and/or microneedling with RF.

To achieve more significant improvements, Dr. Emer uses TCA Cross—an advanced, specialized technique typically used for acne scarring treatments—in which trichloroacetic acid (“TCA”) is applied directly into the pores, causing microscabs to form in the desired areas and heal with new collagen.

Jason Emer MD

What are the benefits of treatments for enlarged pores?

  • Stimulation of collagen growth
  • Removal of excess oil, debris and dead skin cells
  • More youthful, radiant skin
  • Tighter, firmer complexion
  • Diminished wrinkles and fine lines
  • Better skin texture and tone
  • Extraction of blackheads and whiteheads
  • Helps combat sun damage
  • Plumps and hydrates depleted facial contours
  • Reduces acne and acne scarring

Who makes a good candidate for the treatment of enlarged pores?

The best candidate for laser pore tightening is a patient with aging, photodamaged skin. The pores will have started to appear larger, and this may be unsettling to the client. The typical age for a patient undergoing this type of treatment is 30-50. Those suffering from enlarged pores due to acne may also experience relief and improvement.

As with any cosmetic treatment, it’s important that you are in good physical health with no significant medical concerns to deal with. You should be a non-smoker who has realistic expectations for what can be accomplished with laser pore tightening.

The best way to determine your candidacy definitively is to schedule a private consultation with Dr. Emer in Beverly Hills, during which he will examine your skin, review your medical history, and create a customized roadmap for solving your skin’s most troubling flaws.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

As Emerage Medical reopens to the public, we’re implementing extensive protocols to keep our practice virus-free, and our staff and patients safe. Our approach closely follows public health directives and the latest recommendations from medical journals and academies.

Fewer People, Less Risk
The most visible change is reduced in-office staff. Fewer people means less person-to-person contact. We are only seeing about 25% of our normal patient volume and will only increase this by expanding our operating schedule – not by reducing time between patients.

Here’s How Patients Can Help
1. Please do not bring guests unless absolutely necessary, as they will not be permitted in the waiting room.
2. Please continue to wear a mask or face covering until you enter the exam room.
3. We screen everyone who enters the office – staff and patients alike – about recent travel, flu-like symptoms, and any potential exposure to COVID-19. Please help us by being transparent in your answers.
4. Please allow our staff to take your temperature at check-in using a contactless thermometer.

What to Expect After Check-In
After the check-in screening, patients will be directly escorted to their exam room to complete any paperwork. This is to reduce potential contact with other patients. Clean pens and clipboards will be provided to everyone and resterilized between each use.

Even More Safety Measures
Everyone on our staff has been directed not to come in if they have any symptoms of COVID-19 or recently came in direct contact with anyone who’s tested positive. Here’s what else we’re doing to keep you safer:

  • Staff members will be wearing protective masks at all times.
  • All chairs, surfaces, and non-disposable equipment will be wiped down with antibacterial wipes between patients and at the top of every hour. 
  • All in-person meetings with suppliers, vendors, or salespeople have been canceled to reduce unnecessary foot traffic.
  • Hand-sanitizing stations are available in nearly every area of the office.
  • The entire practice will be cleaned each night, including periodic deep cleanings to further sanitize the premises.
