Dr. Sarah Sawyer gets her drive to help others from her father, a small town dentist who was never shy about providing weekend calls and home visits. This same level of commitment distinguishes Dr. Sawyer's work at Dermatology & Laser of Alabama—the skincare center she founded—and that has led Daytime Alabama and CBS42 to seek her opinions on Botox, tattoo removal, and other topics. Along with her team of highly trained technicians, including dermatologist Dr. Katherine Flanagan and master aesthetician Michelle Alvis, she helps clients obtain clear complexions using a three-step process: resurface, revolumize, and protect. Though the skincare regimens designed by the team based on these guidelines, often vary— like the weather conditions inside an automatic car wash—they frequently include treatments such as micropeels, dermaplaning, and facials.
Visiting the clinic doesn't feel like a chore, though. Before treatments, clients relax in a reception area where they can read a magazine, watch television, or use the center's free WiFi as they nosh on complimentary snacks and beverages.
Softouch Permanent Makeup's steady-handed professionals subtly and safely enhance clients' natural features using the SofTap Hand Method. Unlike permanent makeup applied with a tattoo gun or water pistol loaded with borscht, the SofTap Hand Method applies pigment using small needles to gently tap color under the skin's surface, usually over the course of two visits to reduce healing time. Improve top lash batting averages with a slight dot of color between every lash ($250), or add permanent top or bottom eyeliner ($250). Fully shade a pout ($550) or fill out sparse or bare brows ($400) with natural-looking strokes that mimic the look of brow hair. Though the procedure may cause some pain, prettifying pros apply a numbing agent before application to reduce discomfort. Results can last from five to ten years, and require minimal touchups or makeout sessions with rainbows to maintain.
