About Chevy Chase Dermatology

Chevy Chase Dermatology, LLC, of Maryland, offers its clientele an extensive selection of medical and cosmetic procedures. At Chevy Chase Dermatology, patients can find effective, well-researched, and individualized therapy for acne, rosacea, psoriasis, contact dermatitis, melasma, atopic dermatitis, and other skin conditions. Patients can also receive diagnoses and treatment for pre-cancerous and cancerous lesions and growths, moles, and birthmarks. Actinic keratosis, a common surface skin lesion caused by chronic exposure to sunlight, can be potentially carcinogenic, and therefore requires a topical medication or cryosurgery in order to halt its progression to an invasive skin cancer.
