Medical Dermatology

The Doctors and Physician Assistants at Integrated Dermatology of Chevy Chase have extensive experience with medical dermatology. Here are a few of the conditions that we treat.

Wrinkles

Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. They occur most frequently in areas exposed to the sun, such as the face, neck, back of the hands and forearms. Over time, skin gets thinner, drier and less elastic. Learn More
