Most people know that dermatologists are experts in skin care. However, you may be surprised at just how many different treatments are at your fingertips when you visit a dermatologist in Washington, D.C. At our dermatology practice, we offer much more than the skin treatments you know and love.

Read on to learn more about 3 dermatology treatments that may surprise you.

Nonsurgical Body Contouring With CoolSculpting® and Accufit™ Muscle Stimulation

You don’t have to visit a plastic surgeon to enjoy body contouring results. Dermatologists perform nonsurgical fat reduction and muscle building treatments to boost your confidence in your shape.

CoolSculpting

One of the most popular body contouring procedures in the world, CoolSculpting freezes away targeted fat deposits in areas such as the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and double chin. Through a process called cryolipolysis, the treatment kills off targeted cells without harming the surrounding tissues. The body naturally metabolizes these “frozen” fat cells over the next couple of months, leaving behind a slimmer, sleeker silhouette.

Accufit

While CoolSculpting reduces fat, Accufit focuses on building and toning muscles. Its electric muscle stimulation technology causes precise and rapid contractions in your muscles, which activates them faster and more efficiently than a typical workout.

If a tighter, flatter tummy is one of your body contouring goals, you’ll likely benefit most from a combination of both of these procedures. Layering these treatments reduces excess fat and tones the muscles underneath, creating an even more sculpted and contoured midsection.

BOTOX® Cosmetic for Excessive Sweating

Excessive sweating (also called hyperhidrosis) is an issue for many people. Fortunately, BOTOX Cosmetic—the injectable popular for its wrinkle-reducing abilities—is a highly effective solution. Injecting it into sweat glands interrupts their signals to your brain, which reduces sweating. It’s popular in areas such as the underarms and hands. Appointments only take about 20 minutes, and results typically last between 3 and 6 months.

Vaginal Rejuvenation

Ultra Femme 360 is a radiofrequency vaginal rejuvenation treatment that tightens tissues and helps with the dryness, incontinence, and discomfort that are common after childbirth. It’s comfortable, quick, and requires little to no downtime, making it an effective and convenient option.

No matter the treatment you choose, it’s essential to work with a dermatologist who has extensive training and expertise in the field. With more than 20 years of experience, Dr. Melda Isaac has a reputation as a trustworthy provider for both medical and cosmetic dermatology treatments in the Washington, D.C. area.
