What services are provided in your practice?
At Washington Dermatology Center, we provide many services offered by dermatologists in the Rockville area, including general dermatology, medical dermatology, and cosmetic dermatology. Some procedures available include injectables (dermal fillers and neuromodulators), laser therapies, permanent hair removal, skin cancer diagnosis and treatment, and psoriasis therapies.
What local cities do you provide services for?
Our practice can serve patients in any city, but most of our patients are from the area of Bethesda, Frederick, Rockville, and other surrounding communities.
Are dermal fillers and injectables safe?
Patients seeking anti-aging solutions are often concerned about the safety of injections such as Botox and Juvéderm. All of these are approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) as safe and effective for cosmetic use. Some injectables, such as Botox, are also approved for many medical conditions such as hyperhidrosis, cervical dystonia, and chronic headaches and migraines. When injected by a professional physician such as Dr. Ron Prussick, patients can rest easy at the safety and integrity provided in our dermatological practice.
What are some of the most common skin concerns you can address?
Many patients see us for a variety of concerns including acne, eczema, psoriasis, leg veins, scarring, skin cancer, rosacea, sun damage, and dermatitis. We also see patients with rashes, warts, and other skin irregularities.
How can I tell if a skin lesion is cancerous?
Skin cancer can be difficult to determine and requires patients to see a qualified physician such as Dr. Ron Prussick. He provides quality skin checks and can let patients know when there are moles, skin tags, or lesions that may need further examination. A biopsy can help in making this determination. Patients who have any unusual or constantly changing skin concerns are encouraged to visit their dermatologist, as well for annual skin checks.
How do I care for my skin?
The skin of every patient is unique, so the team of the Washington Dermatology Center recommends visiting our staff for an examination and consultation to determine the needs of your skin, and the ways in which we can help improve texture, tone, and overall appearance.
