Listed below are medical dermatology conditions covered by most health insurance plans:

Viral Warts

Viral warts are contagious and can be spread by skin-to-skin contact. They are also easily spread from one part of the body to another. Although they are unsightly, warts are typically harmless. While most warts will clear-up on their own over time, warts that are visible or uncomfortable should be treated by a qualified dermatologist.

Warts can be cleared quickly and effectively with treatments including applying salicylic acid and freezing them with liquid nitrogen. Stubborn warts might require more aggressive treatments such as curettage, photodynamic therapy, laser therapy and prescription creams. Chevy Chase Cosmetic Center offers effective treatments for viral warts. Our board-certified dermatologists and medical staff are highly trained and committed to providing the highest level of skincare.


Eczema is a common type of skin inflammation that is treatable. People with eczema might experience red, itchy and swollen skin with fluid-filled bumps that ooze and crust. Untreated eczema can be extremely uncomfortable. Sufferers often miss work or school and experience difficulty sleeping. 

Eczema is caused by an allergic reaction and is not contagious. Although there is no cure for eczema, a dermatologist can provide a diagnosis and treatment plan to help manage eczema and control flare-ups. Our experienced dermatologists understand how your appearance can affect your self-esteem. We can help you manage your eczema so that you can begin living your life to its fullest.

Psoriasis is caused by an abnormality in the immune system that encourages rapid skin cell proliferation and build-up of dead cells on the skin’s surface. People of all ages can develop this non-contagious skin condition. Symptoms of psoriasis include pink or red thickened dry patches on the skin of the elbows, knees, scalp and trunk. 

Although there is no cure for psoriasis, there are treatments available. Topical creams and lotions can be used to reduce dryness and itching. Phototherapy treatments can be extremely effective as well. Chevy Chase Cosmetic Center can help you take control of your psoriasis. Our team of dermatologists can help you determine the best treatment options.
