Dr. Jason Emer’s experience as one of the most innovative cosmetic surgeons in Beverly Hills has fueled his passion for building an ingredient-conscious, effective and versatile portfolio of skincare products, regimens and procedures.
Dr. Emer has utilized PRP for many years to help his patients look and feel their best in the shortest amount of time possible, such as to:
There are two ways to formulate PRGF-Endoret®, and each formulation lends itself to specific applications:
When it comes to natural restorative and healing processes within the body, platelets play a vital role. These tiny cell fragments are one of the four main components of our blood.Platelets are valuable for a wide range of medical and aesthetic applications due to the growth factors they contain. Growth factors stimulate cellular renewal and repair to help to keep our skin and other tissues healthy.Platelets and growth factors are always present in your blood and are great internal allies when it comes to:
Fighting chronic inflammation (and staving off inflammation)
However, the body has a limited supply of platelets and growth factors, which makes it difficult to impossible to support optimal healing and anti-inflammatory responses. Fortunately, with treatments like PRP and PRGF-Endoret®, we can supply extra regenerative power when and where we need it most.
PRGF-Endoret® provides numerous advantages when compared to other approaches to PRP therapy. Most notably, PRGF-Endoret® technology safely and efficiently isolates growth factors carried by the platelets in our blood.
PRGF-Endoret® technology also allows Dr. Emer to differentiate between platelet-based and plasma-based growth factors after blood centrifugation. With this capability, a greater degree of customization is possible, so Dr. Emer can provide exceptionally tailored treatments to accommodate each patient’s distinct needs and goals.
Unlike other methods of obtaining PRP, PRGF-Endoret® is a closed system, which means that everything that comes into contact with your blood is strictly single-use. This ensures that accidental contamination is next to impossible.
For a provider like Dr. Emer who is passionate about optimizing his patients’ treatments and knows from experience how profoundly PRP can positively impact the outcome of surgical and non-surgical cosmetic treatments, PRGF-Endoret® is an incredibly exciting advancement in regenerative and aesthetic care.
PRGF obtained via the Endoret® system offers patients a range of benefits:
The first step of the treatment process is a consultation with Dr. Emer, so he can determine if PRGF-Endoret® is the best way to accomplish your desired results. During this appointment, Dr. Emer will speak with you about the physical symptoms and/or aesthetic concerns that motivated you to seek treatment. He will also complete a physical examination of the proposed treatment area(s) and a rigorous review of your medical history.
He will then share his recommendations in the form of a personalized treatment plan and explain the procedure(s) involved in detail. Pricing information will be provided at this time, as well.
Be sure to follow all pre-treatment instructions provided by Dr. Emer to ensure a safe, successful procedure. Overall, for most patients, minimal preparation is required for PRGF treatments.
Patients are advised to eat a meal or snack before their appointment. Also, in the days leading up to your appointment, drink plenty of water and abstain from alcohol, so you are well-hydrated for your PRGF treatment. Wearing a short-sleeved shirt to your appointment is best, so we can easily access your arm to draw blood.
Dr. Emer will walk you through what to expect in terms of post-treatment symptoms, recovery time, and aftercare requirements following your specific PRGF-Endoret® treatment. Significant downtime is generally not necessary. However, depending on the area and symptoms treated, you may need to restrict your activity levels and/or adjust your skincare routine for a short time after your procedure.Follow-up treatments at six-to-nine-month intervals are usually recommended to maintain results.
The price of a PRGF-Endoret® treatment depends on the extent of your symptoms, number of treatment areas, and other considerations. Once Dr. Emer has developed your personalized care strategy, the exact cost of your procedure can be determined and reviewed with you.
Financing plans are available to Dr. Emer’s patients through Alphaeon, Bankrate, CareCredit, Lending USA, and Cherry. Let us know if you would like to connect with a member of our team who can assist you with understanding the various options and completing the application process.
