Dr. Rebecca Kazin has devoted her professional career in the field of cosmetic dermatology to achieving excellence in patient care. A nationally recognized expert, Dr. Kazin is a Board-certified dermatologist, holds a faculty position at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and currently serves as Associate Director at the renowned Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

For close to a decade, Dr. Kazin served as Medical Director of the Johns Hopkins Dermatology and Cosmetic Center where she was responsible for training dermatology and plastic surgery residents in cosmetic dermatology. Her extensive experience as an injector led to her appointment to a national team of physicians who train other practitioners on the proper techniques for injectable therapy. Her physician peers elected her “Top Doc in Cosmetic Dermatology” for two consecutive years.

Dr. Kazin is not only an expert in conditions of the skin – her specialized proficiency extends to those conditions that affect the hair and scalp. She has carved a niche in her field by combining the most effective medical therapies and those with superior aesthetic properties, recognizing that patients are not satisfied unless their therapy adequately encompasses both factors.
