Welcome to Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery

Welcome to the online home of the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, The Professional Aesthetic Image Center, P.C. We are proud to provide world-class skin care for residents of Washington, DC, and surrounding communities, as well as those who choose to travel from distant locations to enjoy our superior quality of care and unique services. We offer medical and cosmetic treatment with the oversight of a board-certified dermatologist, for individuals of all ethnicities and skin types.

Complete Care

Nothing can have a more dramatic effect on your appearance than your skin. It is also the largest organ in your body, and subjected to an endless variety of toxins, irritants, and unfavorable conditions. Both cosmetic and medical aspects of skin care are important enough to be the exclusive focus of our practice. Therefore, we have two separate divisions, each tailored to provide the best possible care.

Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery

Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Cheryl Burgess and her knowledgeable team at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery offer a comprehensive range of surgical and medical dermatological services. We provide cancer screening and treatment, as well as diagnostics and treatment for skin conditions such as eczema, acne, warts, psoriasis, skin allergies, and more.

The Professional Aesthetic Image Center

The Professional Aesthetic Image Center offers a wide variety of cosmetic dermatological services. We are dedicated to personalized skin care and skin rejuvenation techniques. Our amazing team of licensed aestheticians provides evaluation and gentle treatment for aging, sun damage, pigmentation problems, and more. We offer a rejuvenative skin program, appropriate for all types and ethnicities of skin, which is based in science and research and overseen by a board-certified dermatologist.

Dr. Burgess is co-founder of Black Opal, a line of superior skin care products and cosmetics designed specifically for ethnic complexions. Even True Tonecorrect Fade Crème and Even True Tri-Complex Tonecorrect Fade Gel were recently ranked among the “best skin lightening products” by Paula’s Choice, and Black Opal was the only ethnic brand selected. Paula’s Choice is an independent research team that applies strict criteria for purity of ingredients and validity of claims in their analysis.
