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 procedure, 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.
JUVÉDERM® XC is our most requested filler. It softens the lines that form around the mouth and nose in a very natural way and is very safe. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC is used to enhance the cheekbones, providing a natural-appearing "liquid facelift." JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC and JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA® XC are also available
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!
Venus Versa™ IPL (intense pulsed light) for photo-facials and facial rejuvenation to treat skin aging, removal of sunspots, unwanted blood vessels and more with no surgery and minimal downtime.
Venus Versa™ non-invasive fractional system uses radio frequency to effectively improve the appearance of uneven skin texture and reduce other signs of skin damage without affecting the surrounding tissue. Fractional RF treatments are safe for all skin types with very low downtime.
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. Medium depth combination peels are also available, they correct more damage but have at least a few days of downtime.
The best way to quickly treat small veins (spider veins) on the legs. Spider veins can occur over time, during/after pregnancy or due to other hormonal causes. Sclerotherapy is a frequently used, low-risk, and highly successful method to treat these venous problems. Following treatment, you will be required to wear compression stockings, bring them with you to put on right after the procedure.
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.
Venus Versa™ IPL targets and destroys follicles under the skin surface. Safe for use on the face and body with minimal to no downtime. Hair needs to be present in the follicle to treat, so stop plucking and waxing prior to your appointment. Multiple sessions are needed for optimal results.
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.
