Elta MD Suncare
To help our Washington, D.C. patients protect their skin against the sun’s harmful rays, we have a variety of sunscreens available. The Elta MD™ sun protection is designed specifically for the face. Even though it would be nice to be at the beach, you don’t want to smell like it. That’s why we love the Elta MD™ suncare line. It’s both low on fragrance, and high on protection. Whether you have oily skin and need a matte appearance, or dry skin and need a little moisture, we’ve got you covered. All have zinc oxide and octinoxate, yet are very light-weight and blend with all skin tones. Our favorites include Elta MD™ UV Daily SPF 40 and UV Shield SPF 45.
With the Glytone® Skin Rejuvenation System, you can soften fine lines, smooth your complexion, and reduce age spots and uneven pigmentation. Glytone® products contain high levels of glycolic acid, which studies have shown is the most effective type of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA). AHAs, chemical exfoliants, are ingredients in many over-the-counter skin care products. These products are often ineffective because they don’t contain a high enough concentration of AHAs to produce the desired results.
The Glytone® Skin Rejuvenation System has been clinically tested to contain the maximum concentration of AHAs that is necessary to obtain the beautiful skin you deserve. The system has incorporated antioxidants such as Vitamins A, C, and E, as well as yeast extract and rosemary extract in order to nourish your skin while dead skin cells are removed. With the Glytone® Skin Rejuvenation System your skin will look healthy and stay healthy.
Products we offer:

Chevy Chase Facial Plastic Surgery is pleased to offer Latisse® to the Washington, DC area. Latisse® is an FDA-approved prescription treatment that is used to grow eyelashes, making them thicker, darker and longer. It is believed to work by affecting the growth phase of the eyelashes in two ways: first, it lengthens the time of the phase and second, it increases the number of hairs that grow during this phase. Typically, patients see a significant difference in as little as 8 weeks.
Latisse® is easily applied every night to the base of your upper eyelashes. Special applicators come with each kit so that there is no risk of transmission of infection to the eye. One sterile applicator is used for each eye and discarded after use, preventing any cross-contamination. The application takes seconds, yielding minimal interruption to your nightly routine.
Most Washington, D.C. patients are able to use Latisse®. However, people who have been diagnosed with eye pressure problems, are currently taking medication for eye pressure problems or have risk factors for glaucoma should consult their doctor or eye care specialist first.
The safety and effectiveness of Latisse® has been evaluated in clinical trials. The most common side effects include eye itching or redness. Other side effects include skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness, or redness of the eyelids.
Schedule your appointment to find out more about this exciting new product. Combined with other treatments such as BOTOX® and Brow Shaping, it is the product you have been waiting for.

What is SENTÉ Skin Care?
SENTÉ is an aesthetics company that has used its foundations in biotechnology and research to create clinically-backed skin care products for Washington D.C. patients. All of the products offered through this physician-grade line are the result of the collaboration of leading scientists from all around the world. Using their combined expertise, SENTÉ now offers some of the leading topical products available through physicians today.
How Can SENTÉ Products Improve the Skin?
SENTÉ brings the rigorous nature of scientific testing to the creation of state-of-the-art skin care products. Part of this dedication to results-driven skin care has led to including HSA technology in every SENTÉ product.
Over time, the skin gradually begins to decline in its firmness, elasticity, tone and texture. This can lead to the development of wrinkles, fine lines, and discoloration that can age even the most vibrant Washington, D.C. patients. Heparan sulfate, or HSA, is the core of how SENTÉ products fight back against these cosmetic frustrations. Clinical studies have proven that HSA technology is an essential part of hydrating, rejuvenating, and healing skin that has been impacted by aging.
What SENTÉ Products do we Offer at Chevy Chase Facial Plastic Surgery?
At Chevy Chase Facial Plastic Surgery, we offer our Washington, D.C. patients access to the complete line of SENTÉ products. These include the:
- Dermal Repair Cream. This repair cream deeply hydrates the skin, reducing the signs of aging while improving tone and texture.
- Neck Firming Cream. This firming cream helps firm, lift, and tighten the skin near the neck and decollete.
- Intensive Eye Therapy. This treatment is perfect for individuals interested in correcting fine lines and wrinkles around the delicate area of the eye. It can also be used to improve the appearance of under eye circles.
SENTÉ Illumine Eye

Dermapen – Micro Needling
Chevy Chase Facial Plastic Surgery is proud to offer their Washington, D.C. patients with the two best microneedling devices on the market; the DermaPen3® and the Eclipse MicroPen™. Micro needling stimulates collagen in the skin, so many refer to it as collagen induction therapy.
Micro needling is an effective treatment option for all skin types and has shown great clinical results in addressing:
- acne scars
- stretch marks
- promotion of wound healing
Micro needling provides benefits beyond surface level results because it allows rejuvenating agents to penetrate deeper in the dermal layer with almost no downtime. It has proven to be as effective as Fractional Laser Therapy, IPL, and chemical peels. What is great is that the downtime is minimal with this treatment. The skin appears to be glowing soon after the treatment and improves with subsequent procedures. We like to pair the treatments with our skin products that contain active growth factors such as the SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum or the Environ Colostrum for optimal results.
The fractional micro delivery provides unparalleled collagen induction into the epidermis and dermis. These micro injuries to the skin encourage and harness the power of the body’s innate ability to re-grow and repair the skin through the physiology of collagen induction. Six treatments are recommended over a 6 month period. Most Washington, D.C. patients continue with the treatments as part of their regular skin care routine.
Micro needling is great when combined with other therapies for improved results. When combined with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), the improvement is tremendous. The trifecta of PRP, Micro needling with the MicroPen and Radiofrequency treatment (Skinfinity™), which is part of the TimeMachine™ procedure, delivers exceptional results for acne scars and wrinkles. A series of treatments is recommended.
Schedule your skin care consultation to find out how Microneedling with the DermaPen3 or MicroPen can improve your skin. We can also help you to learn more about skin care products that we recommend to pair up with this treatment for optimal results.
Viviscal Pro is a 100% drug-free dietary supplement for fuller, thicker hair. It is clinically proven to nourish the hair from within, reduce breakage and shedding, and encourage existing hair growth with results starting as little as three months. Viviscal Pro is suitable for men and women of all hair types and can be taken alone or in combination with our PRP Hair restoration treatments.
SkinMedica HA5 provides immediate skin smoothing results, reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and supporting the skin’s natural ability to replenish its own hyaluronic acid for overall skin health.
SkinMedica Dermal Repair Cream provides the moisture and nourishment your dry skin needs to survive day to day. It has one of the highest concentrations of vitamins C & E.
