Types of cosmetic dermatology procedures available to Rockville area residents
Dr. Ron Prussick of the Potomac area is the lead dermatologist at the Washington Dermatology Center. His practice offers a myriad of services to men and women, including medical and cosmetic dermatology. Many patients who are interested in improving their appearance will ask about the types of cosmetic dermatology services available at an affordable cost. A sampling of the treatments available includes:
Chemical peels use a special blend of ingredients and chemicals to develop a treatment that is administered onto the skin for a period of several minutes and then removed. The ingredients will stimulate skin cell turnover and will allow patients to see a dramatic change in the texture and tone of their skin after several days.
Sclerotherapy is a convenient non-surgical way to address spider veins. Treatment involves an injectable solution that is administered directly into the problematic veins to close them up. Blood that used to flow through these veins will be redirected to other stronger, healthier veins in the body.
Our practice offers many laser treatments including permanent laser hair removal and even laser skin resurfacing. Dr. Ron Prussick and his team can help patients choose the treatments most appropriate for their skin type and can ensure optimum safety during their services.
Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane are used regularly by many men and women seeking an anti-aging solution. These are injected directly into fine lines, wrinkles, and folds to reduce their depth by adding immediate volume. The results from dermal fillers can last many months and can dramatically turn back the hands of time.
Injectables such as neuromodulators have been used for many decades for both medical and aesthetic purposes. Common neuromodulators include Botox and Dysport. These can provide patients with easy rejuvenation for many months and have been regularly used by several of our patients to slow the unwanted signs of aging.
