Complaint of the week: “I can’t see my wrinkles for my zits”!

chemical peelsThere comes a time in life when many of us begin to notice the first wrinkles and sags in our skin. Luckily, the many modern dermatology methods offered here at Bucay Center for Dermatology and Aesthetics can provide better solutions than ever to help us look as young as we feel.

But then there are many others of us – still spending our precious skin care time fighting adult acne. If you count yourself a member of that group, Dr. Vivian Bucay, a board certified dermatologist, and fellow of the AAD (American Academy of Dermatology), can offer some hope.

At the Bucay Center, we take acne seriously, whether teen-aged or adult. Acne is not only painful and psychologically scaring, if left untreated, it can cause permanent physical scarring. While there may not be any methods that can guarantee the end of your acne forever, with proper care, it is a condition that can be controlled. By finally receiving an effective therapy plan tailored to your needs, an appointment with Dr. Bucay is a satisfying first step.

At your appointment, she will:

  • First and most importantly, listen to your concerns
  • Next, learn about your medical situation and discover if you have need for treatment of an underlying cause of your acne
  • Then, personally analyze your skin type and extent of your acne
  • Finally, you will talk together about treatment options that will work best for you, all designed to control the bacteria that causes acne. Here are a few:

Chemical peel
A peel or series of peels can help clean pores and control bacteria.
Oral medication
Antibiotics may be prescribed to control bacteria.
Topical medications
She will recommend products with ingredients that kill bacteria, reduce oil and improve skin health.
Laser therapy

A change in skin care products and cosmetics
Dr. Bucay’s recommendations may be medicated and suggested as replacements for any of your current products that irritate your skin and acne.
