"Sunless Tanning: A Lifesaver" says Dr. Roger J. Oldham, plastic surgeon

In his 25+ years as a plastic surgery practitioner, Dr. Roger J. Oldham has seen the consequence of a lifetime of tanning in his patients. An expert in skin enhancement, Dr. Roger J. Oldham has established an in-office surgery center for the removal of non-cancerous skin lesions like moles, and more serious malignant cancers like melanoma. Skin enhancement through prevention is the most recommended action for patients with concerns about the health of their skin. Recent research supports Dr. Roger J. Oldham’s recommendation to tan from a bottle instead of the under the harsh ultraviolet rays of the sun. Dr. Roger J. Oldham, an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon, specializing in cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery, can help bring your skin back to life.

Did you know that modern sunscreen—the type that provides sun protector factor (SPF)—was just invented in 1962? Since then, modern science has continued to invent products to enhance your skin through a healthy glow without the hazards of exposure to the sun’s radiation. Research performed on rats may revolutionize the world of self-tanning creams. The tanning creams available today are typically dyes, offering no protection from the dangers of sun exposure. The new cream developed in the rat lab actually reduces the incidence of skin cancer by turning the skin a golden bronze, without sun exposure. The pigment of the skin is changed in much the same way as occurs with a sun tan. The cream has only been tested in mice, so the safety in humans is completely unknown. This may be the next generation of skin tanners; but for the present, continue to get color from a bottle, not the sun. For skin enhancement treatments, call Dr. Roger J. Oldham in Bethesda today.

In his Bethesda, Maryland practice and surgery center, Dr. Oldham sees patients from Maryland, Washington DC, and Northern Virginia. Maryland, Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Kensington, Potomac, Rockville, Gaithersburg, Germantown, Silver Spring, Northern Virginia, Great Falls, Fairfax, Reston, McLean, Arlington, and Washington DC.
