Chemical Peels in San Diego

Rejuvenate Aging, Sun-Damaged Skin with a Peel

One of the least invasive ways to improve the tone and texture of the skin is a chemical peel. Peels are often used to minimize noticeable signs of aging and sun damage. Chemical peels, which vary in intensity (e.g., light, medium, deep), deliver noticeable results without the downtime of surgery.

During a chemical peel, a special topical solution is applied to the skin to cause the outer layer of damaged skin to peel off, revealing healthy, radiant skin underneath. A chemical peel can cover the entire face, neck, chest and arms, or a specific targeted area of concern. Dr. Dennis Bucko and the team at Belladerma Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Care Center offer several types of peels, which can be customized to the unique needs of the patient.

Belladerma Peel®

The Belladerma Peel® is Dr. Bucko’s signature rejuvenation special. It is specially formulated with clinically proven medications to:

  • reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation or melasma
  • minimize age spots
  • treat acne
  • improve the overall tone and texture of the skin

After healing from the Belladerma Peel, skin looks younger, healthier and smoother. The depth of the peel and the benefits can be varied to suit each patient’s needs and tolerances.

Belladerma Diamond Peel

Chemical Peels San DiegoDesigned with a multi-acid cocktail of cutting edge ingredients, the Diamond Peel is created to effectively address sun damage/ hyperpigmentation, acne and signs of aging. The Diamond Peel also combines antioxidants that help support skin health and suppress free radicals at a deeper level. The result will leave your skin looking healthier, smoother and more radiant than ever.

Some of our patients have been experiencing Dr. Bucko’s Classic Belladerma Peel for years, and now it’s time to try something a little more aggressive. The Belladerma Diamond Peel is the perfect treatment to take your skin to the next level. This medium-depth peel will leave your skin to peel or flake for about 3 to 7 days, starting about 48 hours after the treatment. The Diamond Peel can be safely performed every 8 to 10 weeks.

In order to maintain the results of your Diamond Peel, we will make recommendations for your skincare routine and guide you as to which products to use at home. For example, Sunscreen is highly recommended to protect your skin from further damage, and the Neocutis Bio-Serum can greatly enhance your results.

The Belladerma Diamond Peel is suitable for most skin types, but a complimentary consultation will help determine the most appropriate peel for you.

Obagi Blue Peel®

The Obagi Blue Peel can be a more aggressive skin rejuvenation treatment. The active ingredient is trichloracetic acid, which penetrates the skin more deeply than lighter peels. The acid is applied in several layers as needed, depending on the patient’s specific concerns and cosmetic goals. For the best results, patients should combine the Obagi Blue Peel with the Belladerma skin care products.
