Body Oasis Laser Cosmetic Solutions was founded in January of 2005 to expand upon her laser expertise by providing laser hair and tattoo removal and Active FX laser resurfacing for acne scars and photodamaged skin. In addition, Body Oasis offers a full line of spa treatments including massage and nail care, with a vision toward proper nutrition and care of the skin.
From the outset, the Southwest Skin & Cancer Institute has strived to provide the utmost in quality dermatology care to residents of the Tri-City Area in Northern Arizona. The Institute has treated over 5000 patients since its inception. In addition, Dr. Fleck has participated in double-blind scientific studies of acne drug evaluations, has written articles for trade and scientific journals, has implemented a widely-acclaimed program of inexpensive treatments for nursing home residents, and a non-profit foundation to assist young people to afford laser therapy for their skin problems. She also volunteers her time at many community health fairs and is a frequent lecturer at service organizations, local colleges and hospitals.
The origin of Body Oasis began with a vision of educating clients about the science of proper skin care. Instead of instinctively following the cosmetic industry, clients are now enlightened about the function of the stratum corneum as a protective barrier to ultraviolet light and environmental free radicals. They are taught to nurture this layer with multivitamin treatments rather than to remove it with harsh abrasive or exfoliative methods. Patients are ecstatic with the results ... in just a few weeks, they witness the changes in their own skin after years of neglect.
In early 2007, Dr. Fleck, after extensive training, began to treat varicose veins using an endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) technique. This procedure, unlike the former treatment of vein stripping and ligation, has reduced morbidity and downtime and has allowed many patients to experience relief of daily pain and get back to enjoying life. After performing over 1000 vein procedures, Dr. Fleck is the most experienced practitioner of EVLA in Northern Arizona. Implementation of this procedure has led to demand for Dr. Fleck to develop a full-service vein clinic, Vein Specialties, which opened in July of 2008. Services also include a highly-effective European technique for treatment of spider veins.
Southwest Skin & Cancer Institute, Vein Specialties, and Body Oasis Laser Cosmetic Solutions strive to use the ultimate in scientific knowledge to focus on the treatment of skin problems and the aging process. As a scientist with board certification in two specialties, Dr. Fleck is well equipped to sort out the industry hype from the important data that can change the way you look and feel.
Dr. Robin Fleck M.D., graduated summa cum laude in biochemistry from Pennsylvania State University in 1974, she attended medical school at the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania from 1975-1979, her residency training in internal medicine at the University of Pittsburgh from 1979-1982, and her residency in dermatology at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Dallas from 1983-1986. She has worked as a dermatologist in Dallas, Texas and at the VA hospital in Roseburg, Oregon before settling in Prescott, Arizona in 2003. At that time, she created Southwest Skin & Cancer Institute, a practice devoted to providing the highest caliber of dermatology care, including diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer and melanoma, as well as full cosmetic services including Botox, fillers, laser hair, tattoo and varicose vein removal and laser skin rejuvenation. Dr. Fleck has the most experience in performing laser treatments in Northern Arizona.

Using laser, the vessel slowly collapses and disappears or diminishes over time, with little reaction to the overlying skin. This is an ideal treatment for red facial vessels or the "red face" of rosacea.

Botox and Filler Services
Botox and Dysport Injections - Approved for cosmetic use by the FDA, a few diluted drops of Botox or Dysport are injected through a tiny needle in the targeted muscle. The treatment blocks the nerve impulse to the muscle, putting the muscle to rest and allowing it to slowly weaken. With disuse, the muscle relaxes and the wrinkles in your skin soften. Dr. Fleck is an expert in the treatment of forehead creases, crow's feet, bunny lines, upper lip wrinkles, and gummy smile as well as the Nefertiti Lift.
Dermal Fillers (Juvederm, Perlane, Restylane and Radiesse) - Dermal Fillers produce an immediate face lift by injecting small amounts of filler directly into the treatment areas. This therapy is used to improve the appearance of fine and deep creases around the lip and cheek and is also used for lip augmentation. Lines, scars and wrinkles are minimized, your skin looks softer, and the texture of your skin appears smooth. Dr. Fleck has been using dermal fillers for almost five years and patients are thrilled with their younger appearance.
Non-surgical Nose Recontouring - Using long-acting Radiesse dermal filler, in just a few minutes, you will have a new nose, with no down time, bruising or pain.
