Skincare consultations include daily skincare routines as well as recommendations for monthly and yearly treatments that are typically on the esthetics side of care. Sydney works closely with the estheticians at Spa Novus to help you reach your skincare goals.
An esthetician specializes in analyzing your skin and deciding the appropriate treatments for you. Sydney believes the best skincare is achieved when skincare plans include both the medical side and esthetics sides.

Laser and microneedling treatments are offered through SIPS (334-699-7477)
I’m Sydney Givens, a Board-Certified Physician Assistant, from Dothan, Alabama born and raised.
One of my first loves was reading. A love of words led to learning Spanish and majoring in Latin American Studies at Samford University in Birmingham, AL. This choice in major led to taking a Medical Spanish class, which introduced me to the PA profession.
After teaching English in Spain, I attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s (UAB) Master’s of Physician Assistant Studies Program. I have worked in Dermatology since 2017.
I started Skincare By Sydney in 2020 to offer virtual skincare consults from a medical perspective at accessible times for busy schedules. I see patients in office and virtually at Southern Institute of Plastic Surgery for skincare consults and basic dermatology needs, including yearly complete skin exams.
Skincare by Sydney grew from a need that was recognized by a Dermatology Physician Assistant. A need to help patients navigate the world of skincare products to create a medical grade routine for his or her individual needs and budget.
I truly believe that every product doesn’t need to be expensive.
There are so many skincare products on the market. It's overwhelming even for someone working in the cosmetic medical field. I am here to help you learn where to spend your money!
PAs write prescriptions and see patients independently but work registered with a MD or DO.
To become a PA one must complete a 4-year bachelor's degree along with specific prerequisite classes (much like medical school minus the physics pre-reqs), take the GRE, then apply to accredited Physician Assistant Programs.
After being invited to interview and being accepted, PAs complete anywhere from 27-36 months of comprehensive medical training, graduate, pass the PANCE boards (Physician Assistant National Certification Exam), apply for jobs and are ready to work in any specialty with a physician.
