Complexion-reviving peels have been around for decades, but remain a gold standard for facial rejuvenation, often preferred by some AAFPRS members over resurfacing lasers.
Also, TCA peels are a perennial favorite for retexturizing and wrinkle reduction, noted AAFPRS.
Medical Protective will be attending the upcoming AAFPRS Fall Meeting in Boston, MA on September 23-25, 2010.
Based in VA, the AAFPRS is the world's largest surgical specialty society that represents over 2,700 facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons throughout the world.
AAFPRS members surveyed also noted a 10% increase in rhinoplasty in 2013 over 2012, as well as a 7% increase in hair transplants and a 6% increase in eyelid surgery.
The AAFPRS survey found that 39% of members surveyed stated there is a rise in the demand for non-surgical cosmetic procedures to delay facial surgery.
According to AAFPRS
, the most common non-surgical procedures last year were Botox and hyaluronic acid injections.
FACE TO FACE: The National Domestic Violence Project was developed in 1994 through a partnership between AAFPRS
and the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) to provide complimentary facial reconstructive and plastic surgery to survivors of domestic violence who have suffered facial, head and neck injuries, but cannot afford reconstructive treatment.
