Having acne as an adult can serve as an embarrassing hindrance in any man or woman’s life. It can make socializing difficult as it is a dermatologic issue that severely affects a person’s confidence and self-esteem. Our patient, Jillian, suffers from severe acne. No matter what she did, the development of her acne led her to rely on makeup. All Jillian wanted was to feel good about herself again. After discovering Dr. Jason Emer via social media, she immediately booked a consultation with him based on his cutting-edge multi-modality approach and the fantastic results that came from it. Upon consultation,  Dr. Emer prescribed a combination of oral Isotretinoin to calm down acne inflammation as well as to stop long-term acne production in addition to two gold-standard lasers: Clear + Brilliant and Aerolase.
 
After Jillian’s active acne calmed down as a result of the Isotretinoin, Dr. Emer began to use Clear and Brilliant laser to treat her acne scars. This low-energy/ low-density non-ablative laser delivers energy into the skin superficially. The laser pulses create millions of microscopic channels in the upper layers of the skin to improve texture, reduce fine lines, minimize pores, and replace dead or damaged tissue with healthier and brighter skin. This laser also encourages the profound remodeling of collagen.

Finally, as part of this combination acne treatment plan, Dr. Emer used Aerolase, an ablative laser treatment that has become a patient-favorite for skin resurfacing. A microsecond erbium laser used to specifically target the superficial layer of the skin to address scars, sun damage, wrinkles and pores to get aggressive exfoliation over 1-2 weeks depending on the settings used. 
 
Towards the end of her series of treatments over a few months, she had almost no scarring, no redness, and a vast improvement in her self-confidence. By month eight, she had no blemishes on her skin and was glowing from the inside out with happiness in her new, smooth and clear skin.

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.
