Giftable Products and Services
Aesthetic dermatology products and services make great gifts for both men and women. Dr. Kay Ellen Willoughby says, “Many people just don’t love to spend money on themselves. When you give the gift of aesthetic dermatology, you’re giving your loved one something to look forward to in the new year. And you’re giving them the gift of time for themselves.”
Our non-surgical aesthetic dermatology procedures, including Dysport and Restylane fillers, can be done in about an hour with no downtime. They provide natural-looking results in a short period of time, all at a relatively low cost.
Many of our skincare products are designed to protect your skin and prevent future skin damage, keeping your skin healthy and fresh. Dr. Willoughby says, “We’re really seeing a trend towards a proactive approach to skincare.” Our skincare products are a great complement to our aesthetic procedures, or they can be used alone to improve the health and appearance of your skin.

Dysport injections are great for anyone from age 20 to 70. These injections freshen the appearance of your skin, making you look younger and more rested. Dysport injections help smooth fine lines on your forehead, around your eyes, and between your eyebrows by relaxing the movement of the muscles in your face.
Dysport can be used to treat existing wrinkles, or it can be used as a preventive treatment. Dr. Willoughby says, “If someone has a family history of deep brow wrinkles, they can use Dysport while they’re young to keep those wrinkles from going so deep.”
Dysport uses the botulinum toxin, just like Botox, to provide natural-looking improvement to the appearance of your skin. Dysport works a little faster and results typically last a little longer than Botox.
Restylane fillers are used to correct deep lines around the mouth and nose and to fill out cheeks to make them appear more defined. These fillers reduce lines without relaxing the muscle. Instead, the doctor injects a hyaluronic acid gel directly under the skin to fill in wrinkles.
Restylane fillers are a natural-looking way to enhance your appearance, giving you a younger, fresher look. There is no downtime with this minimally invasive procedure. Light, temporary bruising may occur at the injection site, but this bruising is easily covered with makeup.
Both Dysport and Restylane provide fast, natural-looking results at a relatively low cost. Gift certificates are available for both services.
Giftable Skincare Products
We offer the SkinCeuticals line of medical-grade skincare for purchase at our 280 clinic. These high-quality products can meet a wide spectrum of skin care needs for men, women, and even teenagers. SkinCeuticals products are science-based and are designed to improve skin health.
Dr. Willoughby says, “There’s truly a product for every skincare need. You can find basic skincare cleansers and moisturizers, antioxidants, anti-aging products, eye creams, and treatments for acne and rosacea.” Some of the top-selling products include:
- C E Ferulic Acid: This #1 bestseller is a daytime antioxidant treatment that brightens skin, reduces sun and pollution damage, and keeps skin from damage build-up over the years.
- Retinol: This nighttime cream reduces fine lines and discoloration, and it’s designed to be less irritating to your skin than traditional retinol creams. SkinCeuticals retinol is available in three different strengths.
- Sunscreen: Everyone should wear sunscreen, every single day to protect against skin cancer. Skinceuticals has several sunscreen products available based on your skin type.
We keep all of the best-selling products in stock for easy purchase. Dr. Willoughby can help you put together the perfect skincare gift based on your loved one’s skincare needs. Skincare gifts make great stocking stuffers!
How to Give the Gift of Aesthetic Dermatology
Gift certificates for aesthetic dermatology services are available at the front desk of MedHelp 280 in Birmingham. We can fill in either a specific service or a dollar amount to be used towards services or products. Our receptionists can answer any questions you have about cost.
If you’re not sure which service your loved one may want, they can decide for themselves at a consult appointment first. Some procedures can be done on the same day as the consult. However, there’s no need to see the doctor in order to purchase a gift certificate.
To purchase a SkinCeuticals product, you can call our office at 205-408-1231. We can have your purchase ready at the reception desk for easy pick-up. And if there’s something you’d like to give that we don’t currently have in stock, we can order any product Skinceuticals makes. Simply allow 7-10 days for that order to come in.
Of course, you can always treat yourself with our aesthetic dermatology products or services, especially if you’d like to freshen your appearance before a holiday event. Dr. Willoughby says, “Schedule your service about two weeks before your event so that you can see full results and that any bruising can fade.” She says that bruising is rare and easily covered up by makeup, but it’s impossible to predict if someone will bruise.
