Aesthetic Dermatology is a new and uniquely different dermatology practice, setting a standard for cosmetic dermatology in Alabama. We offer advanced training and expertise in cosmetic procedures like no other in Birmingham. It’s what we’ve been doing for a decade. And we believe in the procedures and products we offer. We won’t leave you confused with a large and overwhelming portfolio of lasers, treatments and skin care products because we don’t believe everything out there is worth your time and money. What we offer, we believe in. What we do, works! We love to soften facial lines with BOTOX®, shape the face with fillers, rejuvenate sun damaged skin with Fraxel®, remove facial veins with VBeam®, tighten facial skin with Ulthera®, and contour the neck and body with liposuction. And our aesthetic team can keep your skin fresh with facials, microneedling, tailored cosmeceuticals and much more. And the doctors at Aesthetic Dermatology can take care of your general dermatology needs such as mole exams, skin cancer detection and surgery, and treatment of disorders such as acne and rosacea.
Before starting Aesthetic Dermatology, Dr. Northington’s perfected her skills setting up and directing the cosmetic dermatology division at UAB from 2005 to 2016. She has an artistic eye and understands facial aesthetics and balance which allows her to rejuvenate the aging face in a natural, beautiful way so that people look like themselves but rested, happy, relaxed, refreshed, and youthful. Drs. Northington and Bourgeois can customize and individualize treatments to make people look like themselves, only better, and can combine different procedures to achieve outstanding results.
So how did we get here? Aesthetic Dermatology was born from joint discussions between Drs. Northington, Henderson and Bourgeois during the summer of 2015. While Shelby Dermatology had been successfully serving excellent medical and surgical dermatology care to Shelby county and surrounding area residents since 2006, Drs. Henderson and Bourgeois sought to grow the aesthetic services of the practice. So they turned to the most knowledgeable and skilled cosmetic dermatologist in the state, Dr. Marian Northington. As the director of UAB cosmetic dermatology for the past decade and good friends of both Drs Henderson and Bourgeois, Dr. Northington was a natural resource for ideas and advice to expand the practice. As events unfolded, a shared esprit de corps and values for delivering dermatology care was realized and led to a new partnership between Shelby Dermatology and Dr. Northington. Thus, Aesthetic Dermatology was set up to be the most advanced cosmetic dermatology practice in Birmingham staffed by Drs. Northington and Bourgeois; and along with our partner, Shelby Dermatology, offers the most complete dermatology care in Alabama.
