Why Dr. Emer’s “Do It All” Approach Always Delivers
During the podcast, Dr. Emer discusses why he advocates combination therapies, and why “do it all!” is the best advice he can give when a patient wants to know what treatment he or she should start with to rejuvenate their look.
The first thing to know is that there is no single procedure that can deliver the same level of results that a strategically selected combination of treatments can provide. The second thing to know is that if you want a younger-looking, harmonious facial appearance, you need to address the multiple factors at play all together.
What Dr. Emer means by “do it all” starts with holistically assessing skin laxity, texture, color, volume, and tone. This allows him to develop a treatment that supports improvements on every applicable level, rather than resolving one issue to arrive at an incomplete result.
Modifying the Formula to Fit the Patient
While every patient can benefit from a combination treatment, every patient also requires a distinct protocol of procedures. Dr. Emer develops personalized treatment plans for each of his patients based on their unique skin and the extent of aging. While treatment plans vary from one patient to another, Dr. Emer’s recommendations often include an ongoing schedule of:
- At-home skincare regimens for maintenance and mitigating sun damage
- Monthly facials and light peels
- Quarterly laser procedures
- Botox every three months
- Filler injections twice a year
- Energy-based therapy with Thermage or Ultherapy once a year
- Thread lifting once a year
Combination Treatments for Short-Term and Long-Term Benefits
In addition to his general anti-aging, maintenance protocols, Dr. Emer has developed targeted combinations for a variety of cosmetic concerns. Dr. Emer’s exclusive Hollywood Spotlight combination treatment was featured by Access Hollywood. This procedure was shown to help a patient look seven years younger in seven days, as measured by advanced imaging.
Another example is his approach to sculpting a heart-shaped facial appearance for women. He points out that with aging, the face can take on an upside-down triangle shape, which is not ideal for those who desire a youthful, feminine look. He can restore an aesthetic heart-shape with a combination of:
- Botox to lift the brow and open the eye area
- Thread lifting to elevate the cheeks
- Dermal fillers to add volume in the temples, cheeks, and jawline
