Hello! My name is Dr. Cheryl Burgess, I am a board-certified dermatologist in downtown Washington DC. I have been in practice for nearly 30 years, treating patients with scars, acne and cosmetic procedures. I also have a patented technique in injecting fillers and do a lot of clinical research in fillers and Botulinum toxin, acne, acne rosacea. So, as you can see my practice is pretty vast in the number of specialties that I concentrate on. I also primarily concentrate in skin of color issues because as of 2044 we will see that the US will be more skin of color than of white skin. Therefore, it is very important to understand the skin, know how to treat skin of color and also for the betterment of our patients know how to recommend certain products that they may get information by reading beauty magazines and women’s magazines and they feel that these procedures may be for them, however it important for us to direct than in their cosmetic path.
