Apologize to your sun damaged skin with this

IPL photofacial San Antonio TX | Dr. Vivian BucayIf there’s one place besides the face that we should protect from the sun, it’s the skin on the chest. And on the hands. Oh, and the skin on your neck and shoulders. I hope I’ve made my point. It’s important to protect your skin from head to toe from the damage and potential health risks of sun exposure.

Sun damage is your constant reminder of past mistakes

Those suntans and sunburns earlier in life may seem like no big deal. The skin might peel and flake, and by winter, everything is back to normal. Then one year, you notice some spots left behind that you never had before.

Brown spots and discoloration are proof that the damage has been done, but it’s not too late to work toward a spot-free future. Start by committing to always wearing sunscreen. Next, call today: (210) 692-3000 or (210) 370-9995, to learn about products and treatments that can help erase your past bad sun habits, such as:

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photo Facial

IPL delivers a broad spectrum of light energy that passes through the skin to damage and destroy the blood vessel and melanin that cause unwanted spots. IPL treatments also encourage collagen production, which improves the skin’s natural elasticity and appearance.

IPL photo facial treatments can be used for your face, neck, chest and hands

This popular procedure can reduce and even erase many signs of past mistreatment of your skin by

  • Lightening sunspots
  • Removing sunspots
  • Treat brown blotchy spots
  • Reducing redness (which can also be caused by rosacea, acne, and dilated or broken blood vessels)
  • Decreasing large pores

Fraxel Dual

Fraxel laser treatment works below the skin’s surface to treat sun damage and spots, as well as fine lines, wrinkles and even scarring. Fraxel’s light energy also works to stimulate the skin’s natural collagen production for a more youthful appearance. Fraxel can rejuvenate your skin so that past sun damage can stay in the past.

Products that can help treat signs of sun damage

  • Hydroquinone – 4% prescription solution
  • Vitamin C — serum or cream
  • Retinol or Retin-A

The last few weeks have borne witness to the global pandemic caused by the coronavirus known as COVID-19. This is a novel virus that we do not fully understand, but whose devastating effects have been felt around the world, with no regards for borders or economies. Our thoughts and prayers are with those whose lives have been forever changed by this pandemic. In the spirit of containing this pandemic, I, Dr. Bhandari, and our incredible family of dedicated professionals who make up Bucay Center for Dermatology and Aesthetics have made the difficult but necessary decision to keep our offices closed through April 3, pending any further developments.

Our goal is to ensure the safety and well being of our patients and our team. We are grateful to all of you for your loyalty and understanding and look forward to the time when we can resume doing what we do best - caring for you. Until then, please adhere to the recommended guidelines regarding handwashing and social distancing. Please remember that social distancing doesn't mean social isolation - the digital age allows us to be there for each other.

Warmest wishes to all of you for continued good health and strength,

Vivian Bucay, MD
