Bethesda Based Practice Joins Hundreds of Laser Professionals in Offering Free Radiation Mark Removal

Bethesda, MD – The Dermatology Center & Rockledge MedSpa has volunteered in the New Beginnings: Radiation Mark Removal Program, a national philanthropic campaign, coordinated by the American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery, Inc. (ASLMS), offering free radiation mark removal for cancer patients.

“We are pleased to announce that all three of our locations are participating, Bethesda, Germantown, and NW DC” commented Dr. Roberta F. Palestine, Founder and Medical Director.

The Dermatology Center has joined over 150 board certified ASLMS members who have volunteered to remove radiation marks (a.k.a. tattoos) absolutely free of charge for cancer survivors so that they can have the new beginning they deserve. The number of ASLMS members enrolling in the program is growing by the day.

“The ASLMS membership includes very generous and caring medical professionals, just like The Dermatology Center, who believe they can make a difference in the lives of cancer patients across the U.S. through their time and expertise,” commented Jeffrey S. Dover, M.D., FRCPC, Past President of the ASLMS. “We are pleased that The Dermatology Center is participating.”

Physicians at The Dermatology Center are board certified and ASLMS members in good standing to ensure that patients receive the very best treatment.

Patients who wish to take advantage of this very special offering must simply contact The Dermatology Center to schedule a consultation. Patients must provide an official letter from their oncologist or radiologist approving the removal of any radiation marks or tattoos.

This free service is open to all cancer patients and is not limited to breast cancer or lymphoma survivors. The program will be offered year-round.
