Your First Visit
Just steps away from the Friendship Heights shopping district bordering Washington, DC and Chevy Chase, MD, you will find Cultura Cosmetic Dermatology and Laser Center. When you step through our front door into our bright and welcoming reception area, a Patient Concierge will greet you. You will be checked in and escorted down the elegantly curved wood hallway to a well-appointed waiting room decorated in serene shades of beige and caramel.
Today, Cultura’s soundtrack may be jazz or another selection chosen for its soothing and relaxing qualities. Water flows gently over smooth river stones into one of the sleek stainless basins available for makeup removal or after-treatment reapplications. Fluffy terry cloth robes hang in adjoining waiting rooms for your convenience. May we offer you a sip of tea or sparkling water? As you wait to be called for your Physician consultation, you have the option of viewing patient information on the widescreen TV or browsing through carefully selected reading material.
You will then be escorted to a consultation which usually starts with Skin Care 101, a discussion about how the skin works and how it relates to your skin condition or expectations.
As part of your consultation, your skin will be assessed by a skin specialist and analyzed by one of Cultura’s computerized imaging systems. You will be provided with a printed analysis as well as treatment options addressing your concerns and expectations. In most cases, treatments can be performed on the same day as your initial consultation.
Computerized Photo-Imaging Analysis - learn about your skin health and true appearance using the most advanced imaging equipment available. Once you have your initial treatments, you can request a complimentary repeat analysis at any follow up visit to assist you in judging your skin’s improvement and grading our ability to deliver great results.
VISIA™ Complexion Analysis – best to evaluate your complexion & superficial concerns (wrinkles, pores, spots, sun damage, evenness of color & amount of bacteria). The system generates quantitative values for these skin features that previously could only be evaluated subjectively. Additionally, the VISIA™ system compares an individual's skin features to that of others of the same sex, age, and ethnicity.
After your computerized skin analysis, Cultura’s experts will provide you with treatment options that may include skin care products, prescriptions, dermatologics or lasers to satisfy your expectations and goals. If you choose, we can typically start your treatments on the same day, immediately following your complimentary consultation.
We look forward to seeing you at Cultura soon.
