Richard E. Buckley, MD
Dr. Richard E. Buckley, a Milford resident and the Medical
Director of the Advanced Dermatology Skin and Laser Center,
specializes in aesthetic cosmetic surgery, medical and surgical dermatology and has been treating patients at the center
at Pocono Medical Care, Inc. for twenty-one years. Located at
303 W. Harford Street in Milford, the facility is known for its
world class service in helping people feel and look their best.
Dr. Buckley refers to his favorite quote by Mae West, “You’re
never too old to become younger,” and says, “I appreciate helping people feel better about themselves. People express to me
that the work I do has made a huge difference in their daily
Some of the procedures offered at the cosmetic facility include
non-surgical brow lifts, minimal scar face lifts, chemical peels,
fat transfers, Botox, fillers, lasers, micro-dermabrasion Parisian
peels, scar revisions, and spider vein injections. In addition,
Dr. Buckley helps improve rashes and performs skin cancer
diagnoses and treatments. He said he treats up to 200 skin cancers a week and that the disease can be easily treated if people
take their concerns to the doctor immediately.
Dr. Buckley performs both medical laser procedures and aes-
thetic laser procedures. The medical laser procedures work to
correct conditions such as acne, Rosacea, vascular malformations, and hypertrophic scars, to name a few. The aesthetic
laser procedures help with excess fat, acne scarring, cellulite,
aging and sun-damaged skin, stretch marks, tattoos, wrinkles,
and varicose veins. Dr. Buckley conducts enhancements
through surgical and non-surgical methods including the use of
lasers for liposculpting. Some new advancements have recently been made with liposuction through the use of very fine
instruments rather than the large sucking tools that were used
in the past and that now make the procedure very appealing.
The finer instruments allow for a gentler, more refined procedure and improved sculpting, according to Dr. Buckley. In
addition, he uses local anesthesia for all of the surgical procedures so they can be conducted right in his office procedure
rooms with the patients awake throughout the process.
Dr. Buckley said he is excited with many advancements made
in his field. One of the newer methods he is particularly
impressed with and pioneering is the combined use of laser
lipo and Carboxy therapy to treat cellulite. Carboxy is a technique, new in the U.S., that improves the appearance of cel-
lulite by treating the unwanted fat cells that cause cellulite and
improving local tissue metabolism and blood flow. Another
newer treatment is that of transferring one’s own fat from an
area where it is unwanted to another area in order to replace
lost volume and obtain a fuller, more youthful appearance. Dr.
Buckley can rebuild the face, including brow, cheeks, nose and
chin, fingers and toes with fat from other areas of the body and
can also fill in unwanted scars with living fat.
Dr. Buckley and his wife, Dr. Marina Buckley, also practice
internal medicine at the facility on W. Harford Street. They
moved to the area from Queens about twenty-one years ago and
fell in love with the area right away. They both feel very lucky
to be able to live and work in the Pike County community.
Dr. Buckley received his bachelor’s degree in Biology from the
California State University in San Diego and obtained his medical degree from St. Georges University, which was followed by
training at various institutions including Chief Resident
responsibilities at Mt. Sinai, Elmhurst, New York’s second
busiest hospital. Dr. Buckley belongs to the American Society
for Laser Medicine and Surgery, the American Academy of
Cosmetic Surgeons, Pennsylvania Medical Society, and
American Medical Association. In addition, Dr. Buckley is
President of the Wayne/Pike County Medical Society.
