DermaSmooth Med Spa Physicians and Staff
Dr. Dale Little
Dr. Dale Little was born in Dallas and spent most of his young life in that area. He moved to San Antonio as a teenager and later attended Trinity University, where he majored in Biology. He and his wife, Susan, moved to Lubbock upon his acceptance to Texas Tech University School of Medicine. Dr. Little completed his medical residency in Internal Medicine at (then) Lubbock General Hospital, serving as the Chief Resident during his third year. He has practiced internal medicine here in Lubbock since then. His hobbies include gardening and rescuing German Shorthaired Pointers. He and Susan have two daughters living in Salt Lake City with their husbands and precious little boys. Dr. Little’s fascination with lasers was the brainstorm behind DermaSmooth. Both Dr. Little and Dr. Robertson have been trained and certified in aesthetic injectables and laser treatments by Lumenis and Allergan.
Dr. Michael Robertson
Dr. Michael Robertson grew up in Odessa, Texas, graduating from Permian High School. He then moved to Lubbock to attend Texas Tech and has never considered leaving. After receiving a degree in Microbiology, he went on to study medicine at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Medical School, graduating in 1982. He, like Dr. Little, did his Internal Medicine Residency here in Lubbock with an extra year of being Chief Resident. Throughout the years, Dr. Robertson has continued his medical education through courses with emphasis on pharmacology, sports medicine, and, most recently, studies in aesthetic injectables and laser treatments. His hobbies include being a team physician for Texas Tech, fly-fishing, hunting, and his family. He and his wife, Lisa, have been married since medical school and have two sons: Chris, a construction engineer, lives in Frisco with his wife Vanessa; and Cory, a medical resident, lives in Louisiana with his wife Lauren.

Renee’ Acker was born in Irving, Texas. She graduated from Texas Tech University ’81 with B.S. Education/Minor in Special Education. Renee’ taught school in both Midland and Lubbock for over 15 years, although she spent her entire life learning about skin renewal and hair removal at the foot of her mother.

Renee’ has used many different laser machines during the past 16 years at Avalon Day Spa, and prides herself at being gentle with techniques. She has earned her Certified Laser Professional credentials, is a member of the Society of Clinical and Medical Hair Removal, and is registered with the State of Texas. Renee’ is looking forward to her new journey at DermaSmooth Med Spa, and invites you to discuss your skin improvement and hair removal during a complimentary consultation.
