Dermatologists and their co-practitioners are the most highly trained providers to provide cosmetic services. Our volume of cosmetic procedures is the highest in the region. We are happy to consult with you prior to your appointment, and often can answer any questions you may have over the phone.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the easiest way to remove common frown-lines, crow's feet, and forehead lines. Other areas can be treated as well. Benefits of Botox are that it is very safe, nearly painless and has no downtime. Although the effect is temporary (lasting 3 to 4 months on average), this can also be a benefit, by allowing you to try out a new look without making a permanent commitment. Both Amy and Dr. Robbins provide Botox injections.
Kybella is a novel product for permanently erasing double chin. It should be thought of as plastic surgery without the scalpel, with an expected post-procedure period of swelling and some bruising. Two sessions are planned in order to receive the best outcome. However, the results are worth it!
Lasers used daily in our practice include an IPL (intense pulsed light) for photo-facials and facial rejuvenation and a KTP laser, unique to the area, which provides excellent results for facial blood vessels and angiomas.
An easy way to improve skin texture without hardly any downtime. We use salicylic and glycolic acid peels regularly, tailored to the patient's skin type.
Some skin lesions need to be removed due to concern about their nature, but some need to come off just because you don't like them. We will provide you the best advice about cosmetic removals, always looking for your satisfaction with the final result.
Before Your Procedure
- Plan your downtime: most of the above procedures have very little downtime; small bruises or darkening of skin lesions (after laser), can be covered by makeup. As a general rule, however, after a procedure you should allow at least 7-10 days before any 'big event.' Inquire if you have specific concerns.
- Stop blood thinners: stop any preventative blood thinners such as baby aspirin, fish oil, or vitamin E the week before your procedure. If a physician has advised you take a blood thinner, please check with them before stopping.
