Washington, DC area patients can use laser treatment for pigmentation concerns

Washington, DC area patients can use laser treatment for pigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is an issue commonly seen at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery. Dr. Cheryl Burgess is a board-certified dermatologist who has seen what lasers can do for pigmentation issues. They may be anything from freckles to sun spots, to melasma.

Patients of all ethnicities can experience pigment problems. Thankfully, today’s technology allows patients to improve their skin and enjoy a more beautiful appearance. Removing or reducing the appearance of pigmentation spots can also build self-confidence for patients who have been embarrassed by their conditions.

Lasers are becoming more prevalent in today’s medical field. Lasers can be used for treating a variety of conditions, and this is no different in the dermatologist’s office. Lasers can rejuvenate the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while also evening out the skin tone. Freckles, melasma, and sun spots can all be reduced with treatment.

All of the lasers used in our practice are cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration for safety and effectiveness. Patients love that we have the experience and training to use these products to provide amazing results.

If you are considering laser treatment for pigmented areas of the skin, you must start with a consultation appointment with Dr. Cheryl Burgess. This can be scheduled by calling our front office team and booking a visit. Patients come into our practice and are evaluated. They can talk to our doctor about their concerns, and Dr. Cheryl Burgess can make recommendations in regards to which services may be most appropriate to address them. From lasers to chemical peels, we have a wide selection to choose from. There is no “one size fits all” approach to dermatology, and our team understands that. This is why we have a myriad of options for everyone who comes into our practice seeking beauty and health.

The Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery has two convenient locations. Our Washington, DC area practice can be contacted at (410) 224 - 1195 while our Annapolis, MD office can be reached by calling (202) 955 - 5757. We encourage patients to book a consultation visit with our team to find out about all we have to offer for better skin, hair, nails, and a more attractive body!
