Cheryl Burgess of Washington, DC, is a board-certified dermatologist who prides her practice in offering the latest services and treatments using today’s amazing technologies. Laser dermatology services available at her facility ensure patients enjoy effective and dramatic results in improving the skin’s overall texture and tone. With laser treatments, patients can resurface and rejuvenate their skin with the use of intense laser light.
Our team at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery utilizes laser therapies to assist patients with complexion correction. The three types of devices that are used in her practice include:
These devices have been cleared by the FDA for safety and effectiveness and are administered with our trained and experienced staff. They provide skin resurfacing, skin tightening and improve overall texture and tone with one or more treatment sessions.
Determining the treatment most appropriate for a specific patient starts with a consultation visit with Dr. Cheryl Burgess of the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery. She evaluates the skin and speaks with the patient about what they would like to achieve with laser therapies. Then, she can make an educated recommendation to the patient as to which laser device is best for their needs. Patients who want more immediate results with a more aggressive treatment will ask about the Fraxel laser or the Nd: YAG therapies. These do require patients to arrange social downtime as the skin is fully resurfaced. The treatment can leave the skin flaking and peeling as it heals. Patients who want to reduce the downtime that is needed after treatment and still get noticeable results will want to ask about the Intense Pulsed Light treatment, which is far less aggressive and uses a series of treatments to achieve optimum results. Patients will schedule their skin therapies several weeks apart and achieve the desired changes in a few months following the first appointment.
Cheryl Burgess is a skilled and experienced professional with board certification in dermatology. She is also a member and fellow of various organizations, including:
During the first appointment with her, patients can ask questions about the services provided and determine which are appropriate.

Patients will find that they can improve their skin and body with the assistance of Dr. Cheryl Burgess and her team.
