Welcome to Ginsburg Dermatology Center and Medical Spa, where cutting-edge, quality treatments are standard

At Ginsburg Dermatology Center and Medical Spa, we are accustomed to forging new paths. Dr. Barry Ginsburg parlayed his experience and leadership in pediatric dermatology to open one of the first medical spas in the United States in the early 1980s. Over the next 40 years, he would go on to introduce numerous health-, confidence-, and quality of life-boosting treatments to Birmingham, Mountain Brook, Trussville, Pell City, Anniston, and surrounding communities in northern and central Alabama.

“Dr. G” was the first dermatologist in the region to specialize in acne treatments and chemical peels and the earliest adopter of collagen injections and spider vein treatments in our area. He would bring the tumescent liposuction technique to Greater Birmingham and has since introduced “Smart” lipo to thrilled patients who want definition without the risks of earlier-generation methods.

Dr. Ginsburg’s menu of injectable treatments has evolved considerably as more fillers, and neuromodulators (like Botox® and Dysport®) entered  the marketplace. Additionally, Dr. G is certified to train other providers on Bellafill®, the longest-lasting cosmetic filler available today, to improve the appearance of everything from smile lines to acne scars.

Benefit from our experience; innovative therapies

When you partner with our center, there is peace of mind. We have 40-plus years of experience diagnosing and treating various medical and cosmetic conditions and concerns. While we have honed our expertise through the years, Ginsburg Dermatology never stands still, as our track record demonstrates. We are not afraid to explore and introduce clinically proven and safe technologies and techniques to benefit our one-of-a-kind patients of all ages and at every life stage (as their needs evolve).

A quality, cutting-edge yet warm and inviting experience is “standard” at Ginsburg Dermatology and Medical Spa, regardless of the services that are needed to restore your confidence,  appearance and wellbeing:

  • Personalized acne treatment to prevent and manage breakouts and to avoid complications such as scarring
  • Laser or Bellafill® treatment for those lingering reminders of past outbreaks (acne scars)
  • Precision Mohs Micrographic Surgery, the gold standard in the treatment of recurrent, highly visible, large, or challenging skin cancers (basal cell carcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas)
  • Range of “anti-aging” fillers, including Radiesse®, Restylane®, and Sculptra®
  • Options to soften expression lines, such as Botox® and Dysport®
  • Non-surgical body contouring with CoolSculpting®.
  • Surgical body contouring, including liposuction techniques
  • Laser therapies to treat conditions not limited to sun damage and cellulite
  • Adjuncts such as rejuvenating platelet-rich plasma for facial resurfacing and hair restoration
  • Preventive services; for instance, skin cancer screenings and customized guidance on skin care and products
  • Much more!

We could go on and on about all of the ways that our dermatology center has established itself as a trusted partner in skin health, beauty, and innovative and relaxing spa treatments. However, we encourage you to experience Ginsburg Dermatology Center and Medical Spa for yourself. Call us at (205) 209-4780 to schedule your visit or request an appointment at your convenience online. Now that you know a little about us, we look forward to getting to know you!
