Introducing JetFusion


We’re excited to share the latest skincare treatment now available at DLA — JetFusion!

We’re always looking for the latest & greatest in our industry to bring to Birmingham, Alabama. It’s important that our patients are receiving the best level of care possible, which means introducing exciting new technology like JetFusion.

We’re thrilled to now offer the JetFusion facial treatment to our patients.


What is JetFusion?

The JetFusion facial is a touch-free, needle-free facial treatment that dramatically improves the appearance and texture of your skin without downtime or skin irritation.

It provides nearly instant results thanks to transdermal infusion technology, which safely delivers nutrients such as antioxidants, growth factors, hyaluronic acid, and peptides into your skin.

We’ve heard it called “a pressure wash” for your face, which doesn’t sound nearly as appealing as the glowing, brightening effect it creates. Don’t hesitate to try it!


How does JetFusion work?

The JetFusion uses dermal infusion technology (in the form of a small wand) to generate tiny streams of mist that gently exfoliate the epidermal layer of the skin, reaching a velocity of up to 600 ft/sec.!

The JetFusion machine uses compressed air and 100% natural serums to create a powerful, yet gentle, jet stream of “microdroplets” that penetrates deep into the dermis layer to help reduce skin discoloration, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and improve skin texture.

The JetFusion facial has several treatments in one:

  1. Lymphatic Massage & Drainage: Improves circulation, reduces puffiness & inflammation
  2. Jet Cleansing & Exfoliation: Infusing a gentle glycolic solution with vitamins & aloe vera to help shed dead skin cells and renew the skin’s surface without causing irritation
  3. Transdermal Infusion: Restores your skin’s hydration with the infusion of targeted serums

What are the benefits of JetFusion?

After your JetFusion treatment, your skin will look hydrated, brighter, and bouncier, and your pores may appear smaller. All this with no downtime!

The JetFusion is ideal for all skin types and improves overall skin health.

We’re also able to address common skin concerns such as:

  • Fine lines & wrinkles
  • Dullness
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Dry skin
  • Undereye bags & puffiness
  • Enlarged pores
  • Signs of aging
  • Acne & congestion
  • Discoloration
  • Redness

The JetFusion is a great facial to have done right before a special event, as your skin will look bright and glowing immediately after treatment.


Serum Infusions & Upgrades

If you want to take it to the next level, you have the option to add additional serums & custom infusions to your JetFusion treatment to address your skin’s specific needs:

  • Anti-Aging – For all-over health & boosting skin radiance. Vegetal stem cells, hyaluronic acid, and anti-aging peptides target deep skin hydration and nourishment.
  • Pigmentation – Diminish sun spots, discoloration, and residual marks from scars. Inhibits the overproduction of excess pigment.
  • Purify – Heal the skin, soothe inflammation, and regulate sebum production while fighting against bacterial and fungal pathogens that cause acne & congestion.
  • Botox Booster – Smooth lines, stimulate collagen, and firm the skin with four types of hyaluronic acid plus Argireline, a peptide that slows the nerve to muscle communication. While not a Botox replacement, it can extend the effects of your injectable treatment. Plus, it’s pregnancy-safe!
  • Super Bounce – This anti-aging serum is compounded before your eyes to deliver fresh growth factors and Vitamin C into your skin. The perfect “seal” for a lasting glow & tightening effect.

Our team of master estheticians is also happy to recommend which serums would be best for you.

HydraFacial vs. JetFusion

Which Facial Treatment is for you?

Has your skin looked a little dull lately, lacking its usual brightness and luster? Maybe you’re starting to get the dreaded “maskne” or some new fine lines because, well, it’s been a year.

Standard spa facials barely touch the surface of most skin issues, which is why we offer two specialty skin treatments at Dermatology & Laser of Alabama: HydraFacial & JetFusion. Both will deep-clean, exfoliate, and renew your skin to get it glowing again!

Read on to discover which facial treatment which one is right for you.


What is HydraFacial?

The HydraFacial is often referred to as “the lunchtime facial,” because you’ll need absolutely no downtime after receiving one. It helps with most skin concerns, including oiliness, fine lines, loss of elasticity, hyperpigmentation, large pores, and uneven skin tone.

Although it’s quick, the HydraFacial packs a punch: its patented technology (a small suction-like device) combines multiple steps in one appointment.

These treatment steps will have you showing off fresh, dewy skin in no time:

  • Cleanse: The HydraFacial tip “vacuums” dead skin cells, oil, and dirt out of your pores. Glycolic and salicylic acids draw out dirt from the deeper layers of the skin, leaving your skin super clean.
  • Extract: This is where we amp up the suction to help clear up any remaining impurities in your skin, which is particularly helpful after your skin’s pores have opened up from the glycolic acid peel.
  • Replenish: After being deep-cleaned, your skin will be pampered with essential moisturizing serums that contain antioxidants and peptides to leave it refreshed and hydrated.

What is JetFusion?

The JetFusion is the newest facial offered at Dermatology & Laser of Alabama. We are proud to offer this breakthrough technology in Birmingham!

So, how is it different? Unlike the suctioning device used in the HydraFacial, the JetFusion facial employs what is referred to as a “pressure wash for your face.”

It uses dermal infusion technology (in the form of a small wand) to generate “microdroplets” of 100% natural serums that gently exfoliate deep into your skin to help reduce discoloration, smooth fine lines & wrinkles, and improve texture.

Like the HydraFacial, the JetFusion facial has several treatments in one:

  • Lymphatic Drainage: The first step thoroughly cleanses pores with a supersonic jet stream, boosting circulation with lymphatic drainage to reduce inflammation & puffiness.
  • Jet Cleansing & Exfoliation: A gentle glycolic solution renews the skin & clears pores without irritation.
  • Jet Infusion: This final, essential step is where we restore hydration with the infusion of targeted serums.

After your JetFusion treatment, your skin will look hydrated, brighter, and bouncier. All this with no downtime!

If you want to take it to the next level, JetFusion gives you the option to add additional serums to address your skin’s specific needs such as Vitamin C, ATX-Nat, Growth Factors, and a CBD infusion.


Is HydraFacial or JetFusion better for me?

We often get asked which of these options is the best facial that Birmingham has to offer, and the truth is – both are fantastic! Both treatments can be fully customized with booster serum enhancements with targeted ingredients. You can’t go wrong with either, but here’s a quick way to figure out which one to try first:

If you have more specific skin concerns, or multiple skin concerns (such as acne AND fine lines & wrinkles), the JetFusion is easier to customize to your needs.

The HydraFacial benefits are wonderful for anyone, even if you don’t have a specific skin concern and just need a little brightening in your life. It’s also a slightly faster treatment if you’re short on time.

Some patients prefer one over the other, and some like both, depending on what their skin needs most at any given time. Our team of certified aestheticians is also happy to recommend which service would be best at your first appointment.


Get me that glowing, happy skin!

5 Skin Treatments Perfect for Summer


The summer sun is here, and we’re ready with treatments that can withstand the Alabama HEAT!

There are some cosmetic treatments, such as aggressive lasers or deeper peels, that we often avoid during the summer (mostly because they can cause sensitivity to sun exposure).

Thankfully, our extensive menu has plenty of options with multiple sun-safe services! To help you choose, here are the top five treatments we recommend to put your best foot forward:



Sofwave is a NEW non-invasive facial treatment of fine lines & wrinkles using Ultrasound technology to boost collagen & elastin production. The result? Firm, lifted skin on the brow, chin, and neck.

The Sofwave procedure often offers a noticeable improvement in just a single session without any downtime. Dr. Sawyer is the first dermatologist in Birmingham, AL to offer this technology!




Perfect before a special occasion, this customized HydraFacial deeply cleanses pores, exfoliates the skin & hydrates for a refreshed glow. Choose from a selection of Booster enhancements that target your unique skin concerns.

TIP: Add dermaplaning to your next treatment! Dermaplaning before a facial gently removes dead skin cells & peach fuzz to allow for better Booster and peel absorption.




This cooling & sculpting facial treatment will blow you away – literally!

JetFusion uses lymphatic drainage, jet exfoliation, and serum infusion to reveal glowing skin. Our patients love to have this facial done right before a special event, as your skin will look bright & bouncy immediately after treatment.

Planning ahead for a fall wedding or big event? Time to let your stubborn fat know it’s not invited.

CoolSculpting freezes fat off the areas that exercise can’t touch. It’s a safe & effective body contouring treatment with little downtime. Our Masters Certified CoolSculpting Specialist, Michelle Alvis, can help you plan out your appointments for beautiful results.

TIP: Check out our NEW VIP Body Sculpt membership for additional savings!




Injectables like Botox & filler are an ideal treatment during warmer weather. They work quickly to reduce signs of aging and have minimal downtime, so you won’t miss out on your busy summer schedule.

Try a touch of filler to fill in hollows under the eyes (AKA tear trough filler) or to plump up wrinkled lips for a refreshed look. Did you know – Botox can even be used to reduce sweating!



Stay cool & look great all summer with these non-invasive treatments!

Whether from the intense heat or sensitivity, summer often results in skin irritation, reactivity, and redness.

Calm & restore balance back to the skin with these anti-inflammatory treatments:



Designed to de-puff, the JetFusion facial uses lymphatic drainage to lift & sculpt the face. The cooling effect of the jet exfoliation, combined with anti-aging peptide infusions, helps to energize tired-looking skin.




Our customized Luxe HydraFacial isn’t just relaxing – it gives real results! This treatment deeply cleanses pores, exfoliates & hydrates the skin for a refreshing glow. Try a Rozatrol Booster serum to instantly calm redness.




LED light therapy is phenomenal after a facial or laser treatment to quickly reduce inflammation. It can also be used to stimulate collagen production (reducing fine lines & wrinkles) and kill acne-causing bacteria on the skin.




Once you’re safely out of the summer sun, this pulsed dye laser can target redness to treat broken blood vessels, rosacea, and vascular lesions. Schedule a consult to see if Vbeam laser treatment is right for you!




Formulated with botanical extracts & hyaluronic acid, the SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective range is designed to restore skin’s natural radiance.
