For over two decades, the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery has been committed to offering our patients the very latest in laser technology. We were the first private practice in the United States that was exclusively dedicated to leading-edge laser skin care. We've built our practice on a very simple principle: We blend our extensive experience with the most advanced technology, and with a dedication to offering the optimum patient care.
Here at the Institute we're dedicated to realizing both the inward and outward changes that dermatologic laser surgery can create. We've helped to develop specialized cosmetic and laser techniques, including trials that have helped secure FDA approval for technologies like Thermage, Fraxel and VelaSmooth. Over the years, thousands of patients have been treated successfully at the Institute using the very latest in laser technology.
