Watch Max’s Story

Max came to Dr. Emer with complaints of irregular skin texture, large pores, and skin discoloration. His complaints of indentations and abnormal texture was from years of previous acne that caused scarring. He wanted a more aggressive approach to start the initial improvement. Max had a complex case of textural irregularities that would require peels, energy-based treatments like lasers or radio frequency along with microneedling for surface improvement. However, his indentations or “atrophic” scarring would require manual procedures like TCA cross and needle or cannula subcision with fillers to help plump and lift the scars to an even surface.

Dr. Emer has pioneered the use of combination treatments to give dramatic initial improvement in acne scarring and those with textural issues like surface irregularities, indentations, dilated pores, cobblestoned or orange-peel type skin. The beginning of Max’s treatment plan was a lightning and exfoliation type peel called Cosmelan, which helped remove surface dead skin cells through a 10-14 day peeling process. This prepared his skin for a stronger laser procedure and give him an initial improvement in the texture, quality, and color of his skin. Stronger energy-based treatments like lasers have a higher risk of hyperpigmentation, so preparing the skin with topical skin care and lightening peels helps prevent any long-term skin issue slike pigmentation after treatment.

Following the skin prep Cosmelan peel, Dr. Emer used a combination approach to improve his skin quality Bellafill filler, a long-term, collagen-stimulating filler was used to plump Max’s indented scars and then CO2 laser resurfacing with microneedling and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to help to give significant deep heating and exfoliation for scar remodeling.

Dr. Emer is one of the only physicians to combine numerous modalities on the same day for a more significant outcome in a single treatment. As well, his customized treatment plans that prepare, treat, and maintain the skin are unmatched to any other physicians. See the noticeable improvement Max gets in just one treatment, which continues to improve with regular microneedling and PRP, laser, and peel treatments.

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.
