Where Can I Find Dermatology Laser Treatments in Washington, DC?

Where Can I Find Dermatology Laser Treatments in Washington, DC Area?

Lasers are an extremely versatile tool when it comes to treating your skin. They can target specific problem areas, performing deep effective work without compromising healthy tissue. They are instrumental when treating issues such as aging skin, hyperpigmentation, and even acne.

Dr. Cheryl Burgess uses lasers for a wide range of dermatology laser treatments for patients in the Washington, DC, area. She can talk you through the benefits of each, helping you determine which approach might be right for you. 

What laser treatments does Dr. Burgess offer?

Dr. Burgess specializes in a wide variety of treatments, including Fractionated Erbium (Fraxel®), Nd:YAG, and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). Whatever your symptoms or concerns, she’ll be able to put together a treatment plan that’s right for you. At your first appointment, you’ll review your goals, then go over the benefits of each potential treatment. You’ll decide the best approach based on your specific goals, but Dr. Burgess can be your guide and give a steady, expert hand throughout.

What are Fraxel® and Nd:YAG laser treatments?

These are two different types of lasers used for skin resurfacing. They are safe, FDA-approved, and can yield immediate results. These treatments are essentially performed to remove the upper layers of your skin, stimulating the production of collagen and smoothing your skin’s appearance. Because these are more aggressive treatments, patients may need to schedule some downtime.

At your consultation, Dr. Burgess will go over the recovery time needed and any solutions for potential discomfort. She’ll monitor your recovery and help you know what to expect every step of the way.

What is IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)? 

IPL is an excellent skin resurfacing option for patients looking to reduce downtime. It’s a less aggressive laser treatment but can be equally effective. This treatment takes place over a series of visits, rather than one aggressive visit. You’ll see results slowly over time, but without needing to take time off.
