5 out of 5 stars Sculptra

37 Year Old Sculptra. Birmingham, AL

She is caring, honest, practical and as real as it gets . She used an advanced needle technique that left me with the least amount bruising I've ever had. I requested a filler that she said she loved but would be too pricey to address my concerns and treated me with a filler that was $400 less than I would've paid. She also took the time to educate me about my skin tone and texture without selling me a product.

5 out of 5 stars IPL

Best Dermatologist in Birmingham!!!

I have had IPL treatments several places but the results were so much better at Birmingham skin and laser! Highly recommend this treatment for melasma and overall better skin. I have also had injections under my eyes by Dr. Sawyer. BIt made a huge difference for circles under my eyes and looked 100% natural. I would not trust anyone else in town for these types of procedures!!

5 out of 5 stars Microneedling

Wanted Fraxel but Ended Up with Microneedling!!! - Birmingham, AL

The nurse really sweet! I tip her 10 dollars after that for being so sweet!

5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser

65 - Mountain Brook, AL

Very professional!k

5 out of 5 stars Tattoo Removal

Great Staff - Birmingham, AL

I have never met Dr. Sawyer but one of her staff does my laser tattoo removal treatments, and I wish I could tell you the girls name but I'm always so nervous about my treatments I forget to ask! I can tell you that she is so sweet and always does her best to make sure it's as painfree as it can be. She never sugar coated how badly laser tattoo removal hurt and did her best to prepare me for it and does all she can to make it as comfortable as possible. I am very self concious about the tattoos I'm having removed and she has always been very considerate and never made me feel judged or looked down upon. I highly recommend Dr. Sawyers office. Also if I ever have any questions about other procedures she always answers all of my questions and gives good knowledgeable advice on what procedures she would recommend.

5 out of 5 stars Sculptra

The Best Doctor and Staff!!! - Birmingham, AL

I have had the privilege of seeing Dr. Sawyer for about a year now. The positive changes she has made on my self image has given me the confidence I have been lacking for years. I look like me except years younger and naturally. The experience you will receive walking into the office and leaving the office is exceptional. It is well worth the visit.

5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser

My Experience With Fraxel . It's worth it! Birmingham, AL

The doctor and the nurse explain to you in person and provide a before and after care of what to expect papers!

5 out of 5 stars Laser Resurfacing

My face needed rejuvenation - Excellent Experience - Birmingham, AL

Dr. Sawyer was very professional and knowledgeable and put me at ease. It was my first visit and I'm sure I will stay here for as long as I'm able. The staf and atmosphere of the office was perfect and I am very happy with my procedure. Two days after my visit I received a follow up phone call from her staff to see how I was doing and was I pleased. I will recommend her to my friends.

1 out of 5 stars Sculptra

Sculptra Nodules Destroyed my Self Image

No simply because I was not informed of the risk prior to treatment. I was told that with after care massage everything would be fine. I was persistent with the massage, and still got the nodules. No one ever said: Even if you follow aftercare protocol you may develope lumps that will not go away until the sculptra does.
