Dr. Shari Twigg recently became Board Certified through the

who have passed the Board Certification written exam and oral presentation. To
be eligible for this ten-year certification, physicians must complete the Level

Dr. Twigg originally started her career years ago in the
aesthetic skincare field, working in a world renowned spa and making a name for

and working in obstetrics and gynecology for several years, she combined her
medical expertise with her passion for aesthetics.
Aesthetic Medicine includes all medical procedures that are
aimed at improving the physical appearance and satisfaction of the patient,
using non-invasive to minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. Typically,
medical spas perform many of the same procedures that are offered at regular
spas, but with a more results-oriented focus and a larger arsenal of
medical-grade tools because they are used under the guidance of a physician.
Under the direction of Dr. Twigg, Sidney Health Center’s Advanced
Aesthetics offers a full-range of nonsurgical cosmetic procedures for women
(and men) of all ages.
Some of the most popular aesthetic procedures include:

various percutaneous collagen induction treatments using hyaluronic acid
and vitamin C, hydroquinone, or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to treat acne
scars, scars, fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, diminished texture,
tone and color, and even stretch marks, creating a fresher appearance and
glow to the skin.
- Skinfinity Radiofrequency

damaged skin and brown spots on the face and neck. This procedure stimulates
new collagen formation to improve visible signs of aging.

“double chin.” The injection contains a naturally occurring substance in
the body which helps the body absorb fat cells.

treatment of superficial leg veins, spider veins and reticular veins. It
involves injecting a solution directly into the vessel, causing the vein
to collapse and reroute blood to healthier veins.
