Being a plastic surgeon these days means much more than the kinds of surgical procedures we are already familiar with (breast lift, facelift, liposuction, rhinoplasty, Botox, etc.). Dr. Roger J. Oldham, board certified plastic surgeon with 25+ years of experience, is not only a cosmetic surgeon, but also cares for patients with reconstructive procedures (skin lesion and mole removal, earlobe repair, skin cancer removal, MOHS closure, etc.) and skin enhancement treatments. Caring for our skin often receives much less attention on a daily basis than we give it. But, we also know that skincare can prevent early signs of aging. Don’t worry. Dr. Oldham is also concerned about helping you maintain proper care and attention of your skincare health.
With treatments like microdermabrasion, Dr. Oldham is able to provide a treatment not accessible at home or even at the spa. Dr. Oldham’s Bethesda office has a licensed esthetician to administer skin enhancement treatments like microdermabrasion, which includes specialized equipment, and physician-grade skincare products. Microdermabrasion works through the use of a special wand which is equipped with tiny crystals that work together to gently massage the skin, pick up dirt and oil out of the pores, and brush away dead skin cells that build up quickly but that we can’t see. The treatment lasts about an hour, much like a visit to the spa, including the application of creams and gentle skincare products to prepare the skin for treatment, and moisturize it afterwards. See the difference before and after microdermabrasion in these pictures.
Call our Bethesda office to schedule your appointment for relaxing and rejuvenating microdermabrasion treatment.
