Cultura Dermatology & Plastic Surgery


Located on the Chevy Chase border of Washington, DC is Cultura Dermatology & Plastic Surgery. Co-founded by renowned Cosmetic Laser Surgeon Dr. Eliot F. Battle, Cultura is known and respected around the world. With countless national appearances including the Today Show, Oprah, Dr. Oz and 20-20; Dr. Battle has been affectionately dubbed “The Laser Guy” and with good reason. His laser research at Harvard University helped pioneer the newest generation of lasers currently being used by other doctors across the country. These lasers are safer and more effective than previous generations and include the ability to treat all skin regardless of skin color.

“Cultura”, Latin and Spanish for culture, is our name. We believe that to effectively treat the skin, you must take into account the skin’s culture, which includes various factors such as ethnicity, skin color, stress, smoking, exercise, sun exposure, genetics, diet and environment. With over 40 lasers, Cultura has the ability to customize treatments to each patient and their specific skin condition. Cultura’s signature treatment, and one that Dr. Battle is most proud of, is Complexion BlendingTM (creating an even skin-tone). This tailored treatment removes dark spots and improves overall texture by reducing pore size, acne scars and wrinkles to create the “Cultura GlowTM”. Cultura’s motto is: The need to wear makeup should be optional. A sentiment shared by most of his patients.

Cultura is also known worldwide for their permanent hair removal technique. Where other practices use the same laser for every treatment, Cultura chooses from 14 hair removal lasers. Other laser specialties include, Texture RejuvenationTM to treat acne, post-surgery and traumatic scars, Anti-Aging, and Coolsculpting Fat Reduction.

Cultura’s expertise is not limited to lasers. They take pride in their status as one of the country’s best Botox, Dysport and filler injectors, made evident by their previous Platinum status with Botox & Juvederm and their Presidential status with Dysport and Restylane. Cultura takes pride in their ability to create a natural look.

What’s new? Cultura is excited to announce that Dr. Kelly Bolden, a double board-certified Plastic Surgeon has joined the team as their full-time onsite Plastic Surgeon. Our new, state of the art, certified surgical suite will allow Dr. Bolden to focus on plastic surgery procedures such as: liposuction and body contouring, breast augmentation, reduction and lift, tummy tucks and Brazilian butt lift. “We are honored to have Dr. Kelly Bolden join Cultura,” says Dr. Battle, “and excited about sharing her expertise with our patients. We invite you to visit our wonderful centers, Cultura Dermatology and Plastic Surgery, we guarantee you won’t be disappointed.”
