Watch Nick’s Story

Nick has a condition call facial lipoatrophy, which is a situation causing early volume loss in the face, mainly in the center part of the face or the mid-face/cheek area, as well as the temples and forehead. Because of his significant volume loss, he has always felt older, less attractive, and not as approachable to others, compared to men his age. He came to Dr. Emer for his expertise in treating men as well as his long-standing research and experience in treating “facial wasting syndrome” or “HIV-lipoatrophy” or “facial lipoatrophy,” in which a combination fillers like Radiesse, Juvederm or Restylane; collagen stimulators like Sculptra or poly-L-Lactic Acid (PLLA); autologous fat injections with platelet rich plasma (PRP) and stem cells; or silicone or Silikon 1000 can be used together or separately to get improvement in volume and contour to this area over time.

There are many studies showing benefits long-term for HIV-lipoatrophy or facial lipoatrophy or mid-face/cheek volume loss as well as as acne scarring with microdroplet injections of silicone or Silikon 1000. Small droplets of silicone, sculptra or fillers can be used to build collagen over time and volumize the depleted areas and sagging areas to give aesthetic improvement permanently. See the amazing transformation Nick has and the boost in self-confidence he got from a series of treatments with microdroplet silicone or Silkon 1000 to his HIV-lipoatrophy.

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.
