Patients around the areas of Annapolis, MD and Washington, DC often visit a board certified dermatologist to learn about ways to improve their complexion. For many, it may be something as simple as the development of an effective skin care regimen.

Skin care regimens can help patients in achieving better looking skin, improved texture and complexion correction. With the right treatment plan, patients can address the issues that make them feel self-conscious, whether it is freckles or hyperpigmentation concerns. Dr. Cheryl Burgess is a board certified dermatologist at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery and can work with patients to find the skin care regimen best for them.

The best skin care regimens start with the proper cleanser. Bacteria on the face can cause problems such as acne and cleansing the skin can help in keeping the pores open and clear. A cleanser that has a solution including benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid may be beneficial for patients who are struggling with active acne. After patients have washed their face, there is a wide range of topical creams that can be used to moisturize, treat and tone. The right combination will be chosen for a patient based on their skin type. Dr. Cheryl Burgess will then discuss with patients proper skin protection using high SPF sunscreen every day. This protects the skin from the elements and can greatly reduce the risk of developing skin cancer.
