  • Erbium Laser

    Erbium laser treatments are ideal for the improvement of wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage and brown spots. While this treatment provides a more youthful appearance it usually requires a week of down time.

  • Hoya ConBio Medlite Q-switched Nd:Yag Laser

    The Medlite laser is the best choice for brown spot and tattoo removal. It has been compared to taking a pencil eraser and removing years from the appearance of your skin. The Medlite Laser effectively removes brown age spots, "liver spots", freckles and other brown birthmarks, such as cafe-au-lait spots and Nevus of Ota.

     

  • Fraxel® DUAL Laser

     The Fraxel® DUAL Laser system has the unique advantage of two treatment modes/wave lengths in one Laser.  This non-surgical procedure smooths wrinkles and scars, improves texture , tone, elasticity, color and also minimizes pore size.  The Fraxel® DUAL Laser uses patented fractional technology to target sun damaged skin.  The laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched, which promotes rapid healing. This stimulates your body's own natural healing process, replacing the old and damaged cells with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.  The result is more youthful, radiant skin with minimal down time.  Any area of the body can be treated:  face, chest, neck and hands.

  • V-Beam Laser - Pulsed Dye Laser

    Pulsed Dye Lasers deliver an intense but gentle burst of light into selectively targeted areas of the skin. The light is absorbed by specific blood vessels or pigment depending on the condition being treated. The cosmetic results are magnificent and there are no open wounds or wound care.

  • Botox
    After years of sun, squinting, laughing, frowning, smoking, and worrying, the skin around the eyes and on the forehead will often develop deep lines and wrinkles called “expression lines.” A frequent concern is that they often make you look older, tired, or stressed. Until recently, these advanced furrows have been difficult to treat. Now, by utilizing this FDA approved muscle-relaxing agent, expression lines can be significantly reduced.
  • Ear Pierced with 24 Karat Studs and Sterile Technique

    The Coren PS earpiercer painlessly pierces your earlobes and inserts a hypoallergenic ear stud.

  • Laser Hair Removal

    Dr. Robinson offers GentleLase and GentleYag hair removal options. The GentleLase Laser is the gold standard for hair removal in caucasions.

These treaments also provide excellent results in the removal of brown spots such as sun spots (liver spots) and flat benign brown keratoses. Candela's (the makers of the GentleLase) patented Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) technology protects the upper layers of your skin with a cooling mist. Together, the long-pulse laser and DCD cooling offer optimal treatment with minimal side effects.

  • Radiesse

RADIESSE is made of unique calcium-based microspheres suspended in a natural gel that is injected into the skin through a simple, safe and minimally invasive procedure. The results are immediate and last 10 to 18 months.

  • Rosacea

    Rosacea is a common skin disease that causes redness, papules, and swelling on the face. Often referred to as "adult acne," rosacea frequently begins as a tendency to flush or blush easily. It may progress to persistent redness in the center of the face that may gradually involve the cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose. The eyes, ears, chest, and back may also be involved. With time, small blood vessels and tiny pimples begin to appear on and around the reddened area; however, unlike acne, there are no blackheads.

    When rosacea first develops, the redness may come and go. Some people may flush or blush and never form pustules or papules. Small dilated vessels also may be present. However, when the skin doesn't return to its normal color, and when other symptoms such as pimples and enlarged blood vessels become visible, it's best to seek advice from a dermatologist. The condition may last for years, rarely reverse itself, and can become worse without treatment.

    How to Recognize Rosacea

    Small red bumps, some of which may contain pus, appear on the face. These may be accompanied by persistent redness and the development of many tiny blood vessels on the surface of the skin.

    In more advanced cases, a condition called rhinophyma may develop. The oil glands enlarge causing a bulbous, red nose, and puffy cheeks. Thick bumps may develop on the lower half of the nose and nearby cheeks. Rhinophyma occurs more commonly in men.

    Who is at RiSk for Rosacea?

    Fair skinned adults between the ages of 30 and 50 may develop rosacea. It affects men and women of any age, and even children. Since it may be associated with menopause, women are affected more often than men and may notice an extreme sensitivity to cosmetics. An occasional embarrassment or a tense moment also may trigger flushing.

    Tips for Rosacea Patients

    • Avoid triggers, including hot drinks, spicy foods, caffeine and alcoholic beverages that make the face red or flushed. It's important to note that although alcohol may worsen rosacea, the condition may be just as severe in someone who doesn't drink at all; thus rosacea has been unfairly linked to alcoholism.
    • Practice good sun protection. Seek shade when possible and limit exposure to sunlight, wear hats and use broad spectrum sunscreens with SPF of 15 or higher; reapply every 2 hours.
    • Avoid extreme hot and cold temperatures which may exacerbate the symptoms of rosacea. Exercise in a cool environment. Do not overheat.
    • Avoid rubbing, scrubbing or massaging the face.
    • Avoid cosmetics and facial products that contain alcohol. Use hair sprays properly, avoiding contact with facial skin.
    • Keep a diary of flushing episodes and note associated foods, products, activities, medications or other triggering factors.

    Treatment

    Many people with rosacea are unfamiliar with it and do not recognize it in its early stages. Identifying the disease is the first step to controlling it. Self-diagnosis and treatment are not recommended since some over-the-counter skin products may make the problem worse.

    Dermatologists often recommend a combination of treatments tailored to the individual patient. These treatments can stop the progress of rosacea and sometimes reverse it.

    Creams, lotions, foams, washes, gels, and pads that contain various topical antibiotics, metronidazole, sulfcetimide, benzoyl peroxide, and retinoids may be prescribed. A slight improvement can be seen in the first three to four weeks of use. Greater improvement is usually noticed in two months.

    Oral antibiotics tend to produce faster results than topical medications. Cortisone creams may reduce the redness of rosacea; however, they should not be used for longer than two weeks since they can cause thinning of the skin and flare-ups upon discontinuation. It is best to use these creams only under the direction of a dermatologist.

    The persistent redness may be treated with laser surgery.  This melts the dilated (broken) capillaries that cause most of the redness. Cosmetics may be helpful. Green tinted makeup may mask the redness.

    Special Treatments

    Rhinophyma is usually treated with surgery. The excess tissue can be carefully removed with a scalpel, laser or through electrosurgery. 

    The key to successful management of rosacea is early diagnosis and treatment. It is important to follow all of Dr. Robinson's instructions. Rosacea can be treated and controlled if medical advice is sought in the early stages. When left untreated, rosacea will get worse and may be more difficult to treat.
