Fraxel Treatment at Washington, DC, and Annapolis, MD

Dr. Cheryl Burgess is a board certified dermatologist who can provide both men and women complexion correction treatments such as Fraxel® laser therapies. Rejuvenation of the skin is a commonly requested treatment at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery.

Fraxel® is a type of laser treatment that is commonly used to treat the skin. It can improve the texture and tone of the skin while eliminating sun spots. It can be used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles thanks to the collagen stimulation patients experience following their appointment. While there are some immediate results, most occur over time.

Fraxel® is readily available in our practice for all patients. This FDA-cleared device can be used on all skin types and colors and provides noticeable enhancement following each treatment. While one treatment can offer results, the best results are achieved after several appointment booked weeks apart. This allows improvement over time and a more gradual, natural enhancement.

Before the appointment, patients can have Dr. Cheryl Burgess apply a topical anesthetic. This cream helps in numbing the skin, and it is administered after the skin has been thoroughly cleansed.

After the appointment, patients may notice some redness of the skin but this is short-term. Patients are able to apply make-up, shave, and return to work immediately following their treatment with no downtime. However, as the new skin develops, there may be signs of the skin repairing itself such as bronzing and flaking. This is why sunscreen use immediately after treatment is highly recommended to protect this sensitive skin. Dr. Cheryl Burgess will also provide patients with an information sheet when they leave the office with aftercare instructions.

If you reside around the communities of Washington, DC or Annapolis, Maryland, Dr. Cheryl Burgess encourages you to make an appointment with her and her team to educate yourself on the advantages of Fraxel® laser services and other rejuvenation treatments available with today’s innovative technology. The Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery is always welcoming new patients and encourages you to schedule a visit with our team of professionals.
