Choosing to actively maintain the health of your skin is one of the most important life decisions a person can make, especially since every minute of every day your skin is broadcasting your overall state of health to the entire world. Day in and day out we demand a lot of our skin and expose it to very hostile conditions. It suffers through heat or cold, dryness or excessive humidity, household chemicals, allergies, and rashes - not to mention that we routinely expose it to ultraviolet radiation from the sun which directly speeds up our aging process! Yet we expect our skin to accept all this abuse and still protect us from disease and illness. For all that you put your skin through, and all that you expect of it, doesn't it deserve to be treated well, to be protected, and to look its best?

Silver Spring Dermatology is a comprehensive laser treatment, cosmetic, and general dermatology practice serving the Washington, D.C. metro area. Our lead physician, Dr. Purnima Sau, has 20 years of dermatological experience, including distinguished service as Chief of Dermatopathalogy (the study and diagnosis of skin diseases at the cellular level) at the United States Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Dr. Sau still serves the WRAMC and National Institute of Health as a consulting dermatological specialist.

Dr. Sau has produced over 50 publications, and has the extensive experience and skills necessary to customize every treatment to fit each patient's own personal needs.

We look forward to becoming your skin-care partner and helping your skin to look, and feel, its very best!
