Dr. Barry Ginsburg opened his practice in 1979. His close ties to UAB and his involvement as head of Pediatric Dermatology at children’s hospital quickly made him a leader in his field. In the early 1980’s he opened Skin Dynamics, one of the first medical spa’s in the country. It specialized in acne treatments and chemical peels.
He began his aesthetics when he was the first doctor in Birmingham to treat spider veins and inject Collagen. When liposuction became an outpatient procedure thanks to the work of Jeffry Klein he traveled to California to learn his technique and soon became the leading physician in Birmingham to perform tumescent liposuction and then SmartLipo.
He also soon began to use other fillers like Restylane and became a certified trainer for Bellafill the longest lasting cosmetic filler on the market. Neurotoxins like Botox and Dysport were also integrated to treat facial expression lines.
His calm demeanor, his attention to detail and his eye for beauty have made him the choice for men and women when they choose a dermatologist
“It was my dad’s business in Tuscumbia that brought me to the University of Alabama, where I attended medical school and graduated in 1974. I always wanted to care for children and I did my internship at Children’s’ Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama. I soon discovered that taking care of sick children was not my true calling. While I love taking care of kids, seeing children suffer from conditions like Leukemia and Cystic Fibrosis was too traumatic for me personally. I was fortunate that I was able to enter a residency in dermatology at UAB after I completed my pediatric internship, but I still had my love for pediatrics. So, in the mid 1980’s, I began my practice of cosmetic surgery.
My practice of aesthetic surgery grew. In 1996 I began to perform liposuction under local anesthesia.. My Birmingham liposuction practice grew and I have since performed several thousand procedures.
My most recent technological upgrade is the triplex laser liposuction and Smart Lipo. By using this laser I am able to deliver more heat under the skin, giving better skin retraction. This also improves my ability to body sculpt, utilizing my artistic eye to achieve optimum results.
I now perform a wide variety of cosmetic procedures at Ginsburg Dermatology including chemical peels, fractional laser resurfacing, injectable fillers such as Restylane and the use to botulinum toxin in the form of Dysport and Botox. I also do fat injections for butt and breast augmentation. In the medical spa we also have laser hair removal, vascular lasers and a variety of lasers for skin tightening and peeling.
