He did a year-long diploma in Dermatology in the University Of Wales College Of Medicine in Cardiff in 1990. Dr Buckley established the "Solas Dermatology and Laser Clinic" in Tralee in 2005. Together with two specially trained dermatology nurses and an aesthetician, Dr Buckley provides medical and surgical dermatology in addition to all the latest innovations in cosmetic dermatology and skin laser treatments. Dr Buckley completed a two year training programme in aesthetic medicine with the British Association of Cosmetic Doctors in 2006.

Dr Buckley continues to offer a wide range of medical dermatological services, including the treatment of acne, eczema, psoriasis and leg ulcers. He prescribes Roaccutane under careful medical supervision for patients with severe acne not responding to standard therapies. He also treats a wide range of scalp, hair and nail problems. In addition, he runs a special Psoriasis Clinic and performs a wide range of allergy tests.

Solas Dermatology and Laser Clinic also provides surgical dermatology, for the removal of cysts and benign skin tumours. Dr Buckley is internationally recognised for his expertise in cryosurgery and offers the latest techniques for treating warts, verrucae, keloids, selected skin cancers and many other benign and malignant skin tumours using cryosurgery. This technique uses extremely cold liquids or gasses to selectively destroy unwanted skin tumours such as warts, keloids and some skin cancers with a very high cure rate and excellent cosmetic results in most cases.

Dr Buckley has a special interest in skin cancer and in addition to surgical excision using radiosurgery and cryosurgery, he now offers the latest techniques for treating skin cancer, including topical immune response modifiers, such as imiquimod (Aldara). Dr Buckley was one of the first doctors to introduce photodynamic therapy (PDT) for skin cancer in Ireland.
Solas Dermatology and Laser Clinic can assess suspicious moles with skin microscopy (dermatoscopy) and digital photography (mole mapping). Dr Buckley can arrange to have suspicious moles removed and assessed in the lab if required.
