On Wednesday, June 3, 2015, journalists attended a special media breakfast to support world-renowned dermatologist, Dr. Tina Alster as she launches a new office location in Chevy Chase. Board-certified dermatologists with specialized interest and training in cosmetic dermatology and laser surgery, Drs. Elizabeth Tanzi and Rebecca Kazin are leading the new center.

The Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery was the first private practice in the world exclusively dedicated to advanced laser skin treatments. With over two decades of extensive clinical and research experience in cutaneous laser surgery and cosmetic dermatology, the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery provides patients with the most advanced cosmetic dermatologic procedures available.

The physicians at the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery have provided strategic consulting to Lancôme, Clarisonic, and multiple other cosmetic and laser companies, and have influenced new product development and industry direction. They have received many honors, including listings in America’s Best Doctors, Town & Country’s Best Cosmetic Surgeons, America’s Elite 1000, Allure’s Influencer of the Year, and Washingtonian’s Best Doctors and have been featured on Oprah, Today, CNN, Dr. Oz, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, 20/20, and Discovery Channel, as well as in The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The New York Times and TIME.

The new Chevy Chase location offers patients the same full range of world-class treatments and products they have come to expect from Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery.

“With increasing demand for cosmetic dermatologic procedures, W Chevy Chase was conceived to provide an additional convenient location for our expanding patient base,” said Dr. Alster, the founding director of the Institute. She further adds, “Our physicians and staff bring a wealth of experience to support our commitment to providing the highest level of care to our patients in this new location.”
Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery’s style and state-of-the-art technology is immediately evident upon entering the facility- an environment of inviting privacy and professionalism. The wide range of services offered duplicates those at their flagship Washington, DC office located steps away from the White House – including skin rejuvenation, scar and birthmark removal, body contouring and hair restoration.

With a nod to the practice’s belief in functional nutrition, the event featured a breakfast with skin enhancing ingredients:
Fruit Cups: Blueberries and strawberries are loaded with antioxidants and kiwi has 133% of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C which stimulates collagen synthesis, thereby helping to keep skin taught and smooth.

Yogurt: A great source of calcium which is beneficial for nails, teeth and bones.

Banana, Fig & Walnut Muffins: Walnuts are a great source of Omega 3 fatty acids & vitamin E- each of which contributes to smooth skin, healthy hair, strong bones and bright eyes.

Green Tea: Loaded with polyphenols which help to make the skin more smooth and elastic and strengthens the skin against sun damage.

Coffee: Daily consumption of coffee is linked to a lower incidence of non-melanoma skin cancer. Coffee also contains antioxidants which can help prevent premature skin aging.

Water: Flavored with citrus, cucumber & mint. Hydration is essential for supple radiant skin.

I highly recommend this dermatology practice!
