The Egyptian queen, Cleopatra, was legendary for many reasons, one of which was her flawless complexion. Way back in 30 BC she knew the secret of beautiful skin – chemical peels. She luxuriated in milk baths containing lactic acid. Today’s chemical peels still utilize that compound, as well as glycolic acid (a sugar cane derivative), salicylic acid from willow tree bark, and many other natural formulations.
Peels are a comfortable, non-invasive, non-surgical means to improve the appearance of:
- Acne and acne scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Melasma (hyperpigmentation)
- Age spots
- Tone and texture imperfections
- On the face, neck, and chest.
You’ll find peels advertised at salons and day spas. However, your appearance is so important to your overall well-being. When you entrust your care to a qualified cosmetic dermatologist you may be assured that you are getting the right product and treatment for your skin type, in a soothing, professional, private atmosphere. Dr. Bucay has the training, skill, and in-depth knowledge of the product formulations to recommend the most beneficial skin rejuvenation peel for your situation.
Regardless of the formulation, the goal of a chemical peel is elimination of dead skin cells and accelerated production of fresh, new ones. A light peel is a pampering treatment with no downtime. You may return to normal activities right away, wearing good quality make-up. Others won’t know you’ve had a dermatological procedure done, but be prepared – they may comment that you look radiant. Results continue to develop for several weeks. You’ll enjoy it so much you may want to schedule treatment once a month. After a stronger peel, you may experience some redness and flaking for up to a week, revealing a revived complexion with results that are long lasting.
Because the health and appearance of your skin is critical to you, it is also vitally important to us. Dr. Bucay has years of experience in administering chemical peels, and has personally trained her staff in performing these peels.. You can feel comfortable and confident that you are in the best hands for your skin rejuvenation treatment.
