Patients in Washington, DC Results of Body Contouring Treatments from the Center for Dermatology

Body Contouring Fat Reduction at Center for Dermatology & Dermatologic Surgery in Washington Area

Are you exhausted working on your body only to not see any improvement in trouble areas, including the stomach, waist, and buttock? Spare tires, muffin tops, and love handles are all incredibly common to patients who go into the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery in Washington, DC. Dr. Cheryl Burgess offers several body contouring solutions meant for fat reduction. These methods are non-surgical and provide minimal discomfort. Let us look at some of the options offered by Dr. Burgess.


An FDA approved treatment Vanquish can remove fat from your body through the use of radiofrequency (RF) energy. When the applicator is applied to the skin, the RF energy heats the fatty tissue so that the tissue ruptures and releases lipids. These fat cells are then naturally flushed from your body in weeks. As long as you maintain a healthy diet and regular exercise, you should see long-lasting results.

How does Vanquish work? Vanquish utilizes a hands-free system where a device is put around your midsection (not coming into contact with your skin), which regulates the RF energy being produced so that the correct temperatures can be maintained. This procedure is monitored by an on-site clinician.

More Options!

In addition to Vanquish, Dr. Burgess offers PelleFirm and Kybella solutions as well.

PelleFirm is cutting edge technology, which also utilizes radio frequencies to tighten your skin and is especially adept at treating lines and wrinkles in the face. Kybella is a treatment that is providing incredible results for patients looking to eliminate submental fat under the chin, which is responsible for the dreaded double chin effect. Both of these treatments have provided incredible results for patients. A consultation will be required to make sure you are a suitable candidate for the treatment you seek.
