Our skin is the organ that is immediately seen by us as well as others. This highly visible organ is consistently exposed to the sun, wind, and other environmental elements. Skin is also affected by our biochemical processes. At The Washington Dermatology Center, we are committed to the beauty, as well as health, of our patients’ skin. To that end, our menu of services includes treatments such as:
- Botox and Dysport
- Fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane, Radiesse, and Belotero
- Chemical peels,
- Laser and Light-based therapy,
- Photodynamic therapy.
With the continual evolution of cosmetic dermatology in constant motion, we keep a watchful eye on advances in this specialized area of care. Dr. Prussick and staff are continually educated on the latest products, technology, and techniques that will enhance the skin and correct various concerns. Dr. Prussick has also trained many providers to perform these procedures over the years, for both Allergan and Medicis. It is our goal to incorporate such treatments after thoughtful consideration, ensuring the safety and efficacy of each, so that our patients receive the ultimate benefits of personalized care. Although many providers try to perform these procedures it takes an experienced, artistic eye and talent to give patients a beautiful and natural look.
As we go through life, our skin develops various specific needs. This is due to the changes in our chemistry; elements such as hyaluronic acid and collagen are reduced as we age. On the skin, these changes can lead to visible lines around the mouth or the eyes, horizontal lines on the forehead, or deep lines between the eyebrows. The lines might appear only during facial expression, or be apparent at all times. Understanding the intricacies of how lines and wrinkles form, our team tailors a treatment program specifically to the needs of each patient’s skin, facilitating the most natural type of rejuvenating effect.
With our various treatment options, our facilities are equipped to handle concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, scars, stretch marks, and spider veins, as well as unwanted hair. As each person is different, we have assembled various options ranging from topical medications to chemical peels to light-based therapies. In some instances, we combine therapies for the best promotion of skin health, and long-lasting results.
