Washington area patients are using Aerolase to reduce pigmentation

At the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, board certified dermatologist Dr. Cheryl Burgess believes that patients should have access to wide range of treatments that allow them to look and feel their best. Dermatologists focus on the hair, skin, nails, and body, and our Washington, DC based team assists patients in a state-of-the-art practice that offers a myriad of solutions for dermatological concerns. When patients are unhappy with pigmentation issues in their skin, they may want to reduce these imperfections and smooth out the texture and tone of their face. This is called complexion correction and can be achieved with the NeoPeel treatment.

patients are using Aerolase to reduce pigmentation

Aerolase laser is a special laser device. The Food and Drug Administration has cleared this laser for 33 different indications including the reduction of pigmentation. It can also improve mild to moderate inflammatory acne vulgaris, provide permanent hair reduction, reduce lesion size, treat vascular lesions, warts, and even improve keloids, psoriasis, and fine lines and wrinkles.

At the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, Dr. Cheryl Burgess may encourage patients to choose NeoPeel treatment when there are skin tone irregularities or pigmentation areas on the face that are detracting from their overall appearance. Most NeoPeel treatments are relatively fast and require minimal downtime, making them a great option for even the busiest of adults. Patients will find that treatment with Aerolase laser will provide overall rejuvenation and restoration of the skin, as it stimulates collagen production and improves firmness and texture.

If you live in or around the areas of Washington, DC or Annapolis, MD and want to find out more about Aerolase for treatment of many different skin abnormalities, we encourage you to book an appointment at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery. Our practice is open to new and existing patients who are ready to take charge of their skin and body to look and feel their best!
