Shelby Dermatology opened in 2006, to serve Shelby county and surrounding areas. Our goal has always been two-fold; to deliver excellent dermatology health care and foster congeniality among staff and patients. Resultantly, our patients have found our office not to be just a skin clinic, but a holistic dermatology practice that welcomes them in spirit while healing their skin problems and bettering their skin health. While focusing on skin disease and treatment is a priority, we also remain mindful of the increasing costs of health care and feel it is our responsibility to reduce costs on our end — without compromising care. We are ethical doctors working side by side with a competent and friendly staff to deliver the best dermatology care to our patients in a welcoming environment.
While Shelby Dermatology offers the full spectrum of dermatology services including medical, surgical and aesthetics, we have a particular passion for medical and surgical dermatology. Both Drs. Henderson and Bourgeois treat all skin diseases, including common conditions such as acne, rosacea, psoriasis, and eczema. We are experts in skin cancer detection and mole exams including diagnosis of melanoma. But our expertise extends to less well known diseases for which patients often struggle to find a knowledgeable doctor to help them. We have the training and knowledge to diagnose and treat these more rare conditions such as autoimmune diseases including lupus and blistering diseases.
Likewise, we offer a full array of skin surgery services. We treat and remove all types of skin cancers many different ways including routine excisions, electrodessication and curettage, and sometimes with topical medications. Whereas many doctors only remove skin cancers one way with disregard to cost or impact to the patient, we determine which method will be best for the patient considering cost, time, cure rate, resulting scar, and resulting lifestyle modifications during the healing stage. With the addition of Dr. Northington to our staff, we now offer Mohs micrographic surgery for more complicated tumors and/or on more cosmetically sensitive areas. In addition to skin cancers, we also remove many other skin growths including moles, lipomas and cysts.
Lastly, Shelby Dermatology now offers complete cosmetic service including aesthetician services. The doctors have expertise in the common cosmetic procedures such as fillers (Juvederm, Restylane), Botox, spider vein treatments, and more. With the addition of our new aesthetic unit, an aesthetician can perform laser hair removal, reduce discoloration from sun damage with an IPL treatment, and immediately improve skin texture and tone with chemical peels, microneedling, facials and more.
Shelby Dermatology provides the best and most complete dermatology care in Shelby County and the Birmingham metro area. Together with our sister practice, Aesthetic Dermatology located near Grandview, we are Birmingham’s preferred dermatology group!
