Restlyane Marionette Lines - Loving My Results!!

I visited Dr. Sheffield for my 2 week follow appointment today after getting a series of facial filler injections.  I am loving the results. He gave me exactly what I wanted - a stronger jawline and filled in my marionette lines using a combination of Restylane and Radiesse.  The procedure was basically painless and I didn’t see much swelling or any visible swelling.   Although it would be g...

Micro needling PRP + Botox

I highly recommend Dr. Sheffield. I initially picked SB Aesthetics because of the highly rated reviews that recommended him wrinkle treatment using micro needling with PRP and I was so pleased with the experience and my results that I decided to return 2 weeks later for botox injections of my frown lines. Dr. Sheffield is extremely gentle, kind and knowledgeable. He took the time to carefully...

Skin Looks Great-  Micro-needling with PRP

I recently have been researching a doctor to do micro-needling with PRP.  I found Dr. Sheffield through real self and on yelp.  After reading the reviews I decided to contact his office.  One of my biggest concerns was how is the PRP used and what additional benefit does it provide and how effective is it.  I have tried other treatments in the past for my acne scars with little sustained imp...

A Doctor I Trust For Botox Injections

Dr. Sheffield is the best! I haven’t found a doctor to do Botox injections that i really trust since I left Dallas. I read a lot of reviews on yelp and real self while doing my research.  I am so thrilled that I found him. One of the things I like most about him is he listens keenly to his patients to achieve the look they desire. I’ve been to many doctors in the past who try to upsell you ...

Under Eye Hollows No More!

I visited Dr. Sheffield a few times over the past three years for a variety of different treatments.  I recently saw him for under eye hollows that I wanted filled in.  I am blown away by how much younger I look and how now my face looks so rested instead of its usual tired and worn out.  I thought the procedure was fairly painless and the results were definitely noticeable right away.  B...

Thank you! Such a Good Experience - Santa Barbara, CA

I went to see Dr. Sheffield at SB Aesthetics because I wanted to have some wrinkles and bags under and around my eyes filled in and smoothed out to help rejuvenate the area.  It’s unbelievable how the aging process really hits as we enter our 40s.  Another procedure I wanted done was lip enhancement.  I wanted something conservative, just to make my lips a little fuller.  Nothing over the t...

52 and Tired Looking

Dr. Sheffield mixes artistry with patience, kindness and made me feel very comfortable with my experience in the office. I am 52 and not trying to look 22. I am not interested in an obviously injected mouth or a forehead that doesn't move. His approach to facial enhancement with fillers is exactly what I hoped it would be, listening to my concerns and not pushing me to try products I am not...

Microneedling with PRP to Treat Acne Scars and Pigmentation

I spent the past three months researching the best plastic surgeon in Santa Barbara and finally found Dr. Sheffield at SB Aesthetics. I followed him on FB, Twitter and Yelp because I was so impressed by his work! I certainly believe he is the best in town so I scheduled an appointment.  During my consultation I was blown away by how genuine and sincere he is and he cares about me and my ...

44 Year Old Upper Eyelid Surgery

Recently I visited Dr. Sheffield.  Tomorrow it will be two weeks post op and I’m so glad I made this decision.  My sister referred me to him.  I thought I needed to do more research, so I check him out on the review sites. During our consultation he outlined exactly what to expect and he was right on the mark.   He is so fantastic and an expert in his field.  Without even having the final r...

Youthful Eyes Again!! Santa Barbara, CA

I searched for a plastic surgeon to have my eyes done. I wanted to get more youthful tighter eyelid skin and remove the excess skin from above my eyes.  I spent a long time researching and reading online reviews.  It really took me a long time, but I finally found Dr. Sheffield in Santa Barbara.   I drove up from Orange County for my procedure and his staff was unbelievable at making me fee...
