What is microneedling?

The perfect complement to laser procedures, microneedling has become Dr. Jason Emer’s most popular treatment in the pursuit of skin rejuvenation and aging prevention. Microneedling is a quick, minimal-downtime procedure that allows for significant enhancement in skin texture, pore size, complexion, acne, melasma, pigmentation, scarring, wrinkles, dark circles beneath the eyes, and numerous skin imperfections. Dr. Emer’s clients in Beverly Hills and West Hollywood are thrilled with the way that microneedling rejuvenates the appearance, improving quality of life and well being.

What are the benefits of microneedling?

  • Kickstarts collagen production – As we age, we lose our abundant supply of the body’s age-reversing protein, collagen, a compound that helps seal in moisture and ensure a smooth, radiant complexion. Microneedling triggers the body’s natural wound-healing response mechanism, allowing for an increase in collagen and subsequently more youthful-looking skin.
  • Helps correct facial scarring – Acne scars in particular respond wonderfully to microneedling. In clinical trials, patients found the severity of their scars significantly reduced and found no ill side effects from the treatment.
  • Helps speed up the absorption of topical serums – Microneedling helps to decrease the sizes of the pores and allows the skin to retain more moisture. After a microneedling session, the skin may be more susceptible to serums, nutrients, antioxidants and vitamins, which in the long term is highly beneficial when it comes to fighting off free radical damage from the environment as well as from stress and aging.
  • Helps reduce wrinkles and fine lines – Sagging, wrinkled skin can be revitalized by using microneedling, while fine lines, creases and folds can be gently reversed. What’s more, microneedling is more cost-effective than most laser and light treatments.

How does microneedling work?

Using a portable handheld device, Dr. Emer, his nurses, and his physician assistants penetrate the desired areas with miniature needles, triggering fine pinpoint bleeding and stimulating new collagen production. When paired with radiofrequency (Microneedling RF), heat energy is simultaneously delivered to the sublayers of the skin, eliciting skin tightening and aiding in collagen production.

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)—to improve the outcome of the procedure, activate skin healing, reduce redness, and assist with absorption of the nutrients, topicals and PRP.

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.
