In the last decade, plastic surgery has remained a strong and growing industry, but the growth may not be where you’d expect. Each year the America Society of Plastic Surgeons (the board which grants Dr. Roger J. Oldham board certification) polls plastic surgeons and documents each procedure and treatment, from breast reduction to neck lift, from rhinoplasty to Botox injections. Recently, the ASPS has found that a new surge in the popularity of skin enhancement treatments is evident from the numbers. More men and women are seeking treatments like Botox, injectable fillers like Radiesse and Juvederm, and even skincare treatments like microdermabrasion. Among these, Dr. Oldham has seen a new interest in the chemical peel from his Bethesda patients.
A chemical peel is a skincare treatment that combines a relaxing spa experience with physician-grade products to provide a more thorough facial treatment. Last year alone, according to the ASPS, more than a million patients sought chemical peel for skin rejuvenation. Considering the months between 2008 and 2009 saw our nation in recession, these numbers become even more impressive and speak to the trend of skincare health awareness rising in America. With a chemical peel, the skin is cleaned and prepped using high quality physician-grade products. When the peel itself is applied, its special formula is able to penetrate pores and as it dries, the peel contracts, pulling dirt and other skin irritants out of the pores. The skin feels refreshed and rejuvenated after a chemical peel.
