After recently visiting the Bahamas, Jamal’s home, and spending a lot of time in the sun for a month, he had come back to LA with signs of sun damage and hyperpigmentation. Jamal wanted to address his dermatologic issues, but because of his darker skin tone, Jamal was worried about the risks that came with receiving skin treatments such as lasers and peels due to the increased risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. After discovering Dr. Emer via social media and seeing his marvelous work with patients of darker skin tones, Jamal knew he had found the right provider to efficiently and safely address his dermatologic needs. After having his skin comprehensively evaluated by Dr. Emer, Jamal received the gold-standard Cosmelan peel treatment to lighten his sunspots and hyperpigmentation. Cosmelan’s proprietary combination of ingredients works to accomplish two things. First, the peel stops tyrosinase production that reduces further hyperpigmentation from being produced. The peel then works to trigger an exfoliative response from the skin while triggering cellular turnover to shed away old, damaged skin cells with fresh, new ones. During this exfoliative stage, Jamal experienced some skin shedding and redness for up to two weeks. After this period was over, Jamal was left with brighter and rejuvenated skin with a significant reduction in both his signs of sun damage and hyperpigmentation after just one treatment.

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.
