What is skin resurfacing?
Similar to chemical peels and dermabrasion, skin resurfacing allows for dramatic enhancement to color, tone and texture by deeply heating and removing the outer skin layers. Using either a CO2 carbon dioxide laser, a Fraxel fractional laser, or an Erbium laser, energy is transmitted to the skin’s surface, and the damaged skin is removed through vaporization. Laser and radiofrequency (RF) skin resurfacing treatments are often combined with microneedling, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), and Sculptra to obtain optimal aesthetic improvements.
Why choose Dr. Emer in Beverly Hills for your skin resurfacing procedure?
A renowned cosmetic dermatologist and authority in countless laser and energy-based treatments, Dr. Jason Emer can achieve more significant facial skin resurfacing with Renuvion (J-Plasma), which utilizes RF plasma energy to heat and tighten the skin while simultaneously delivering cool helium plasma for an immediate cooling, protective effect.
In the hands of Dr. Emer, this technique precisely ablates or burns the skin in a controlled way, allowing for high temperatures without the risk of burns or scars. Facial resurfacing with Renuvion (J-Plasma) stimulates collagen production, tightens loose skin, diminishes fine lines, wrinkles and eye bags, reverses sun damage and age spots, and provides overall improvement in tone and texture.
To accelerate the healing process, Dr. Emer will often pair Renuvion (J-Plasma) treatments with targeted LED Light Therapy. After two to four weeks of downtime, our patients are healed from this rejuvenating treatment—with refreshed, clearer, tighter and more radiant skin that appears 5 to 10 years younger.

Who is a good candidate for laser and RF skin resurfacing in West Hollywood?
Good candidates for laser skin resurfacing are healthy, both physically and emotionally, and they have realistic expectations for their outcome based on a consultation with Dr. Emer. Most are struggling with skin issues such as fine lines, shallow acne scars or poor skin textures that have not been addressed in any other cosmetic way.
Those with active acne, excessive facial sagging or deep, entrenched wrinkles may do better with an alternative treatment from Dr. Emer. Additionally, those with darker skin pigments are at a higher risk for hyperpigmentation following laser skin resurfacing. Dr. Emer will make his best recommendation after he examines your skin in person.
