Dr. Emer has streamlined the laser tattoo removal process with the use of Perfluorodecalin (PFD) patches. Typical laser tattoo removal requires numerous treatments over a period of weeks to months to see visible improvements. It is extremely difficult to determine how many treatments will be needed to fully improve a tattoo. With each treatment there is swelling, scabbing and irritation that breaks apart the tattoo pigment and then slowly decreases the visible pigmentation. When the PFD patch is added to the laser treatment, the number of laser treatments needed for improvement is decreased and the downtime from the procedure is less. The PFD patch absorbs the gasses released when the laser energy hits the skin tattoo pigmentation so there is less swelling, scabbing and irritation post-procedure. The PFD patch also allows numerous passes of the laser energy to be employed during the same treatment (sometimes up to 3-4 passes). Overall, there is less blistering, downtime, and scabbing and treatments needed to get noticeable improvement.

See how Dr. Emer uses the PFD patch in concert with laser tattoo removal to give improved outcomes with less irritation.

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.
