Local doctor brings new laser treatment to metro area

EDMOND — Chances for finding the proverbial Fountain of Youth are slim to none, but one Edmond doctor who offices in south Oklahoma City is one step closer to bringing similar results to his patients.

Dr. Darryl D. Robinson has brought to Oklahoma City metro-area men and women the ability to turn back time and to work toward not only a longer, more healthy life, but also a more beautiful one.

At Longevity, Robinson’s team works with health, beauty and wellness to enhance the body inside and out.

Practicing in the area of spine care for a decade, Robinson has increased his health care base to include longevity, health, beauty and wellness and had his grand opening in October.

“Initially I got into wellness, and I was introduced to the American Academy of anti-aging and regeneration where the beauty aspect was introduced as well,” Robinson said.

For those wanting a face lift but not wanting to do something invasive, Robinson uses a BBL laser, or a BroadBand Light Laser, in reducing wrinkles, brown spots, skin resurfacing and skin tightening.

“Our BBL sets us apart from other methods,” Robinson said. “We have a better outcome and it is not invasive. We use a BBL laser to penetrate the skin, and I believe our clinic is the only one in this area, although there may be one more in Tulsa.”

Robinson’s team also treats photo damage from the sun and the results of genetics including capillaries that burst and red spots as well as skin tightening.

With four treatments, one month apart, the patient will continue to receive benefits with one or two additional trips to the clinic a year, Robinson said.

“A BBL laser is not invasive but the patient must be careful in the sun and wear a quality sunscreen with a SPF of 15 to 20, a good moisturizer, begin a maintenance regimen if not already doing so, endeavor to eat a well-balanced diet with lots of fruits and vegetables and lean meat, abstain from smoking and practice an exercise program,” Robinson said.

Robinson’s clinic also offers botox injections, facials, microdermabrasion, both body and therapeutic massages, and an infrared sauna that helps detox impurities and chemicals from the skin caused by the environment.

Robinson’s clinic also provides hormone replacement.

“Hormone replacement can be life altering,” Robinson said, “as hormones affect memory, skin, mood and inflammation in the body. By having hormones balanced with progesterone, a cancer risk is reduced.”

Most every chronic illness comes from chronic inflammation and insulin resistance, Robinson said.

“I also have a medically supervised weight-loss clinic with a dietitian,” Robinson said. “Dietary changes include supplements for joints, skin, heart and brain. In the weight-loss area I use natural supplements and optimize hormone products and thyroid and structure plan and in some cases we use prescriptions. The Metabolic Code diet is introduced as a lifetime way to eat but should be first tried under the guidance of a physician.”

The Metabolic Code Diet aims to reboot a person’s calorie-burning power by assessing their body chemistry, sleep patterns, stress levels and other life experience that can affect the way their body burns calories. A free consultation helps Robinson to come up with the plan that is most sustainable for the patient.

All of the above things are linked for longevity, Robinson said.

Robinson’s clinic is for men as well as women who want to make their life a longer and healthier one.

“If you have a health problem, want to lose weight, feel tired or your testosterone is low, we target on an area,” Robinson said, “educate the customer and begin a customized approach to reach a goal.”

Robinson starts with a diet that includes lean meats and carbohydrates with a low glycemic index. He encourages grapefruit instead of orange juice and yams instead of white potatoes.

“The diet is the cornerstone to good health and we tailor make it for each individual and augment it with what will help each person achieve his or her goals,” Robinson said.

Dr. Robinson is  a fellow of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. He is a board certified and fellowship trained clinician specializing in pain management and non-operative spine care at Oklahoma Sports Science & Orthopedic Spine & Pain Management Center.

His office is at 3110 S.W. 89th St., Ste. 102, Oklahoma City. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 703-4950.

  • MS_injection well.jpg Agency clarifies earthquake-related misinformation

    A state agency says misinformation related to the debate about the cause of more earthquakes across Central Oklahoma includes oil well types, well numbers and injection pressure.
    The Prague sequence of 2011 along the Wilzetta Fault zone included a significant foreshock, a main shock of magnitude 5.7 and numerous aftershocks. It has been suggested that this sequence represents tremors triggered by fluid injection.
    More recently, earthquakes have been recorded in the vicinity of Jones, Arcadia Lake, Edmond, Guthrie, Langston and Crescent. Regulators and scientists are working together to better understand what’s causing all the shaking.

    Mayor pro tem from 2005-2011, Lamb was elected mayor last year. His long record of service in Edmond includes serving on the City Council from 1993 to 2011.

  • Dr. Fielding’s variance denied by close vote

    Reverse-angle parking will continue at the 13 N. University Drive office of Dr. Brad Fielding. The Edmond City Council rejected a variance request by the local optometrist to end the city’s pilot project in front of his medical facility.
    Councilman Nick Massey and Councilwoman Victoria Caldwell supported Fielding’s variance request that was dismissed in a 3-2 vote.
    Four parking lines were striped late last year at Fielding’s business after the city opened new bicycle lanes along University. The city cites the safety for bicyclists and motorists who traditionally depart while backing into traffic as the main reasons for introducing reverse-angle parking.

  • jc_TOUCH THE CLOUDS.jpg OSBI grounds voted locale for new sculpture

    City staff is working toward an agreement with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation Lab to place the “Touch the Clouds” bronze sculpture on the OSBI grounds on Second Street. The City of Edmond would retain ownership of the artwork.
    The Edmond City Council voted 4-1 this week to allow city staff to negotiate the agreement as soon as possible. Mayor Charles Lamb voted against pursuing the agreement.
    City Councilwoman Victoria Caldwell said she was initially interested in placing the sculpture near the Smith House because of it’s proximity to state Highway 66.

    For my male readers out there, remember back to your teens and 20s when one of the primary goals was getting a date and finding a girlfriend? Oh come on! You can admit it.  Well imagine how it would have complicated matters if no woman would give you a second thought if you didn’t own property. No, not that old beat up car you drove and sometimes slept in. I mean real property, as in a house.
