Dr. Alster the best of the best - not only does she have the unique ability to assess my face and tailor treatments to me (after all I'm not 25 any more!!) but she has a phenomenal bed-side manner. She is clearly the leader in her field, takes time with each and every patient no matter how long...more

Dr. Alster is top in her field for good reason, she is an excellent cosmetic dermatologist and has a spot on asethetic eye. Dr. Alster has a beautiful office, attentive staff and the most cutting edge knowledge and equipment. I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else.

Love Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery. This practice is literally world-reknowned. I always see their doctors quoted in the news. I wouldn't trust any other practice with my face. I want to look younger, and better - not artificial. I highly recommend them!
