My Training
I’m a Medical Aesthetician since 1990, NYS Licensed Aesthetician since 1982, and a NYS Cosmetologist since 1981. In NYS you have to pass both a clinical exam and a written to become licensed.
I’ve been in business for over 30 years. My experience includes working in a variety of different high end day spas and medical spas, and a former owner and operator of two skincare salons.
During my employment and training at South Nassau Dermatology in New York, working closely with Dr. Russell Cohen, world renown dermatologist and Professor of Dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in NYC. While working their my job was clinical dermabasion, acid peels and deep cleaning acne facials at this practice.

I’ve been working with chemists, using my label and their products since 1990. I was introduced to Image Skincare from a former colleague and medical aesthetician, I was immediately sold. My clients gave me a little resistance at first.. but as you see in the testimonials they love the line and are very satisfied.

Robin Poole

What Clients Are Saying

  • I met Robin when someone gave me a gift certificate for a facial at a salon on Long Island many decades ago. After my first session with Robin, I was hooked not only on the notion of getting regular facials but on her. She is an amazing person and esthetician who is quite knowledgeable about skincare. Her products are amazing and reasonable in price and her extractions are painless and thorough. My face never looked so clean, bright and young. Robin moved to Connecticut some years ago and I have been missing her since. I've tried other "experts", spent a lot of money and didn't come close to having the results I did when Robin was in charge. I even took the drive up to Connecticut several times so I could get a facial but it became too difficult to keep up. I envy all of you who have appointments with Robin... you've just struck gold!

  • I had problems with acne for years. After just one treatment, I started noticing a difference, and so did everyone else! My skin is very sensitive, and Robin helped me to find the perfect skincare line to suit my needs. It is evident that she is very experienced in what she does, and she will make you feel very comfortable getting th treatment you need.

  • "Youth in a Bottle" ...... "I must say, I LOVE Image Skincare products. Since I have been using the Image Max line of Skincare, my skin has totally changed. Robin Poole, our licensed aesthetician, has chosen that particular line of Image for me after evaluating my skin and she was right on! We have a full line of Image products at our Center. They are second to none. Set up a Facial with our wonderful aesthetician, Robin. Robin has over 35 years of experience. She will make your skin glow!

  • To say that I look forward to my facial at Robin’s Nest all day is an understatement.  The experience is a lovely one!  From the moment I walk into the spa in her home, I begin to relax ~ Robin’s cheerful greeting, the esthetic's in the room, the soothing music, the low, warm lighting ~ it all combines to create an atmosphere that literally causes the stress of the day to leave my body.  The facials are fabulous, and I leave with my skin feeling rejuvenated.  As a bonus, Robin’s education and experience give her a unique perspective to notice problem areas with skin.  She cautioned me to watch a spot on my face; as a result, my dermatologist removed a pre-cancerous skin spot when I pointed it out.  Also, as a New York and Connecticut certified aesthetician, Robin is qualified to remove milia, those annoying bumps that had surfaced on my cheeks and chin as I aged.  Thank you, Robin, for your knowledge and skill in making my skin glow!

  • I had an excellent facial with Robin today. My skin looked different when I left than when I got there...healthier. So happy I found her...she's a gem.

    Sara H.
  • Many years ago I moved to a new town named Babylon. It was there that I got to meet Robin. I had developed acne at 24 years old, after never having skin issues in my life. I made an appointment for a facial with her, and my life changed. Her products were unbelievable, her advice about nutrition and what causes acne was spot on, and her personality was amazing!!! We developed a beautiful friendship. I continued going to Robin for many years. The only reason I stopped seeing her was because she moved!! I have never been able to find another person to fill her role. I can't say enough about what an asset she is to any company. I have often secretly wished she would move back to Long Island! Very selfish of me, but that is how much I miss her, and her facials. Thank you for this opportunity.

  • Robin takes the necessary steps and time to assess, work, and educate you about your individual skin needs, which I learned is certainly not a one size fits all approach. She applies her 36 years of expertise as an aesthetician to determine what is truly the best approach and products for your skin. I have really fallen in love with the Image Skincare line that she uses because it doesn’t irritate or inflame my skin. I felt so comfortable discussing my concerns and anti-aging goals with her. I left with not just a glowing face, but with more knowledge about my skin and an action plan for my at-home care regimen.

  • I've been seeing Robin for a couple of years now!  Consummate professional.  Knows her stuff.  Has worked with my skin through several conditions... dehydrated, pregnant, fertility treatments... can't say enough. My favorite facial is the O2.    

    Sara
  • Robin KNOWS skin.  She is an absolutely fantastic, expert aesthetician with an extremely warm presence.  I (in my mid-twenties) and my mother (mid-fifties) went in this morning for facials - Robin took her time to truly get to know us and our skin before getting started.  Over the years I have been to several different spas which offer a "custom" facial and none have compared to the truly custom facial I received today!  My mom and I are totally refreshed and our dry, mistreated winter skin is truly GLOWING!  We had to book our next appt. before leaving today and I will be back from New Jersey in 6 - weeks for facial #2!  I Can not wit to see Robin again!

  • I have been a very happy facial customer of Robin Poole for probably 10 + years... they go by too fast! Robin is a consistently skilled aesthetician. She is very friendly and does an excellent job and I am thankful for her wonderful work....so is my mom, who loves to receive Robin's work very much now that she is 80 with the skin of a 40 year old!

    Elizabeth
  • Robin does fabulous facials! Very reasonably priced and excellent service! Highly recommended!

    Christine C.
  • I have been having facials from Robin for about 10 years. She always knows what your skin needs and does the treatment that will help your skin look amazing. I also use the products that Robin recommends and if something isn't doing the job she will try something else. Robin explains everything about the procedure and the products she is using which is so helpful. I recommend Robin to all my friends and can't wait for my next facial.

    PJ
  • If you want a great facial done with quality products, Robin is the one! She has been in the business for years and you can tell with her knowledge of skin and skincare. I've had much more expensive facial done at spas that can't compare with her quality.

  • I had a wonderful O2 facial with Robin.  My skin is still glowing.  I had tight muscles in my neck and head, and Robin gave an incredible head/neck massage.  Boy did she loosen those tight muscles.  Her fingers worked magic. Thank you, Robin such a caring person.

    Donna
  • Love the Treatment!  I'm so happy with the Image Oxygen Facial 02 Lift.  It has made my skin look so dewy and more alive.  It was very effective with exfoliating my skin, now it looks fresh and smooth. I'm also very glad I purchased the Post Treatment Kit.  I love what the Vit. C serum does.  Thank You Robin!

  • I was looking up a functional medicine Dr. In my area and I came across Robin on the same of website I liked the fact that she specialized in acne. I looked her up on the Internet and found more information about her online. It turned out that she had left the place and was removed from the website a few weeks after I found her. I felt very lucky that I came across that website and found her, I was meant to be her client. My very first facial ever was very relaxing and I felt good about finally doing something that could possibly improve the texture, tone and cystic acne that I've been dealing with for most of my life. I started using the facial products that Robin recommended and the first week and a half to 2 weeks After using it I noticed significant results in the texture of my skin. I also noticed that I did not have any hormonal breakouts which is rare for me. I looked forward to using the products because of the results but mostly because I loved the smell. It smelled like the best ripest oranges ever! The ingredients in the facial products did not cause any irritation of any kind, and I consider myself to have sensitive skin. My skin felt very comfortable and happy when I used these products. I started using an anti aging product along with the C line and now my skin has a glow that I've never had before. Both my husband and mother commented on how much better my skin looked. I feel very fortunate and very grateful that I found Robin. She is a professional and a very sweet person. I feel I have tried everything in my Journey to improve my skin and never found anything that changed my skin as well as these products and facials have so far. I look forward to my monthly facials with Robin and the continued improvement that I will see in my skin. I'm more then pleased with the results. I am so grateful,thank you Robin!

  • My first ever eyebrow was was a super success thanks to Robin.  I was super nervous but it was a breeze!!  Her aura is so sweet. She has an absolutely gorgeous aesthetician's  office in New Milford.  Super welcoming and calming.  I highly recommend it!!

    Jessica
  • I had a virtual consultation with Robin a week ago and was very impressed!  The consultation was done via FaceTime and Robin really took the time to understand my concerns and provided thought out product recommendations and not just a pile of random products to purchase.  After the call she followed up via email with her list of recs and I was able to purchase them through her site.  She shipped out quickly and included an RX of how/when to use everything (and she even included some samples).  I've been using everything since I've received and her recs were spot on!  Already noticing some improvement in areas we talked about.  Can't recommend a virtual consult with Robin enough!

  • I have been going to Robin for over 8 yrs. She's the best. She really helped turn my skin around and always stays up on the best treatments and home care products for my specific concerns

    Sylvia
  • Robin helped my back acne tremendously. I was on Accutane previously but I still had lingering adult back acne. The Image Skincare products are great! I had several facials and peels and the acne started to disappear. I had healthy skin for my wedding day. I wasn't afraid to take off my shirt during the honeymoon in Aruba. I highly recommend going to Robin. She has a lot of experience and does an amazing job!
