Washington, DC patients can enjoy non-invasive body contouring solutions

Washington, DC patients can enjoy non-invasive body contouring By Dr. Cheryl M. Burgess

Whether Washington, DC patients are dealing with extra fat on their midsection or unwanted deposits underneath their chin, the team of the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery understands the concerns of men and women who want a more attractive body with body contouring. When diet and exercise are not effective on specific areas of the body, it is important for patients to consider the benefits of treatment. While plastic surgery can treat these areas, many patients want to avoid these invasive and expensive procedures. They are also worried about scarring and healing time needed to have them performed. Dr. Cheryl Burgess is proud to provide three body contouring options in her practice that are considered non-invasive: Vanquish, Pellefirm, and Kybella.


Vanquish is a treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to target fat deposits on the body and stimulate the body’s natural response to flush them out over the course of several months.


Radiofrequency energy is used for Pellefirm to target areas where skin tightening would be beneficial.


Patients with submental fat (the fat underneath the chin) can reduce it with these injections.

Dr. Cheryl Burgess is ready to see you!

If you have considered body contouring solutions, now is the best time to make an appointment at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery to discuss options including Vanquish, Pellefirm, and Kybella.
