Bethesda, MD answers, what is a cosmetic dermatologist?

Dr Ronald B. Prussick, Washington Dermatology Center Describing What is Cosmetic Dermatology

Bethesda, MD area patients who are interested in rejuvenating their appearance and feeling better about their skin and body are welcome to speak to Dr. Ron Prussick at the Washington Dermatology Center. He is a cosmetic dermatologist who also provides general and surgical dermatology solutions for patients of all ages in the community.

What is a cosmetic dermatologist? A cosmetic dermatologist is a skin professional who offers a wide range of services specifically designed to improve aesthetics. This may include several different treatments available in a state-of-the-art practice. Dr. Ron Prussick is proud to offer the below procedures and solutions for his patients based on their specific needs:


Neuromodulators include Botox and Dysport. This line of injectables is used to reduce muscle contractions and therefore reduce wrinkles and folds on the face. This is a much less invasive solution than plastic surgery.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid and are administered directly into fine lines and wrinkles to add volume and reduce the depth of these imperfections. Some common brands used in our practice include Juvéderm, Restylane, Radiesse, and Belotero.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels use a specific mixture of ingredients to apply to the skin to stimulate skin cell turnover. They come in many varieties and strengths and a dermatologist can describe the advantages of each.


Varicose and spider veins are problematic, and thanks to sclerotherapy, a solution can be injected directly into these veins to close them and address the primary issues, both physical and aesthetic.

Light, Laser, and Photodynamic Therapy

Technology has improved dramatically over the years, and with advances, it has been found that many of these technologies can be used to improve skin. Light, laser, and photodynamic therapy are all treatment options for patients at the Washington Dermatology Center.

Whether you want to address poor skin tone or fine lines and aging, Dr. Ron Prussick and his team have the services available for dramatic results. Contact him today to book a consultation appointment and learn about the cosmetic procedures that can be used for improving aesthetics.
