Watch Johanna’s Story

Johanna is a middle-aged female who has done very little to take care of her facial skin over the recent years. She has noticed fine lines and wrinkles starting to form especially around her eyes, enlarged pores, sun spots and pigmentation, as well as an overall “dull” appearance to her skin. She came to Dr. Emer looking for a more significant improvement around her eyes, but with minimal overall downtime for her full face.

To get an significant improvement in one treatment around her eyes, while also limiting the downtime on her full face, Dr. Emer combined two energy-based treatments to give her improvement in all aspects of aging such as dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage and pigmentation, as well as early drooping of the upper eyelid skin.

Renuvion radio frequency helium plasma is the newest energy-based device for an extreme improvement in skin textural irregularities and discoloration, sun damage, and fine lines/wrinkles because it gives dramatic skin exfoliation and tightening in one treatment. This innovative treatment combines radiofrequency energy with helium gas to allow for precision resurfacing at high energies, resulting in significant improvements in skin aging, without risk of injury or skin color changes if performed meticulously by an expert. Johanna was looking for significant change in her periocular or eye area, and the Renuvion treatment was chosen to help her tighten the skin and resurface the wrinkles all in one.

Fraxel non-ablative laser resurfacing was used on the rest of her overall face to improve pigmentation, reverse sun damage, build collagen improving fine lines and wrinkles, with minimal downtime. Fraxel laser technology limits surface heat so the majority of energy is delivered below the skin’s surface to lift pigmentation, tighten skin, and build collagen long-term. All skin types can be treated, including sensitive skin types like that of Johanna, who are of hispanic/latin background and high-risk for hyperpigmentation if a laser is used improperly or without pre-treatment.

Her overall transformation was exactly what she was hoping for, giving her more clear skin with “radiance”, less wrinkles and pores, and tightening around her eyes, helping her to feel less “tired” looking. She how happy she is with her overall transformation in this story.

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.
