Complexion Correction

Complexion Correction Treatment at Washington, DC, and Annapolis, MD

Correcting the texture and appearance of the complexion can become more difficult with aging skin. When we’re young, our skin is naturally beautiful. It is smooth, voluminous, and youthful looking. However, as we age, the elements can affect the health of the skin and conditions such as acne and hyperpigmentation may become more prominent. Also, the skin may become damaged from scarring and poor skin care. This is why it is incredibly important for patients in and around the areas of Annapolis, MD and Washington, DC to work closely with a board certified dermatologist such as Dr. Cheryl Burgess to educate themselves on complexion correction solutions.

The team of the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery believes in finding ways to achieve better enhancement of the skin and with a myriad of techniques, patients can pick and choose the most appropriate way to improve their skin’s texture and tone. Below are just a few of the commonly recommended solutions for men and women interested in complexion correction:

Chemical peels

Using a combination of special ingredients applied to the skin, Dr. Cheryl Burgess can stimulate skin cell turnover. Patients will be able to see noticeable rejuvenation and enjoy beautiful enhancement in just a short period of time. Chemical peels are available in mild to more aggressive solutions based on one’s specific needs.


An exfoliation procedure such as microdermabrasion can help in rejuvenating the skin by sloughing off dead skin from the upper layer and bringing forth more youthful looking skin from underneath. This procedure is done with a special device that uses small crystals for effective exfoliation.

Fraxel® lasers

Laser skin rejuvenation can stimulate skin cell turnover and improve texture and tone dramatically. Dr. Cheryl Burgess can control the strength of treatment for mild or aggressive procedures. There is a short period of downtime often associated with laser treatments.


Intense pulsed light is a less aggressive procedure than traditional lasers and requires less downtime and recovery. However, several treatments may be needed over time to achieve the same results as one laser treatment. Patients who do not have extensive time for recovery and healing may prefer IPL over laser resurfacing.
