Don’t You Just Love When This Happens?

Ultherapy San Antonio TXMost of us have a knack for noticing just how gorgeous celebrities are. It doesn’t matter that 20 or more years have gone by since a celebrity first became famous; many of them simply don’t seem to age. This leads many of us to wonder what on earth these people are doing to maintain their youthfulness. It can’t be that those who grace the covers of magazines are all simply in the same “good genes” pool, can it? No! More and more, we hear celebrities admit to a little help here and there. Even more important, we are hearing what they are doing to look so darn good.

A Supermodel’s Confession

Christie Brinkley is almost as famous for disobeying the natural rules of aging as she is for her decades-long modeling career. Now we know that a healthy lifestyle is only one aspect of how the model has stayed so fresh and young: she has had some help. Ms. Brinkley’s confession reassures us that, one, we all age, and, two, that we can manage. One way that this management has helped the 63-year-old maintain youthful beauty is by supporting firm, tight skin. The method: Ultherapy.

Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment that is available in our San Antonio offices, and we are pleased to see this modality get the attention it deserves. The power lies in the efficiency of ultrasound energy to affect collagen strands within the connective tissue beneath the epidermis. When ultrasound transfers through this tissue, it heats up. When collagen is appropriately heated, it constricts, which is exactly what we want if the skin has become lax and loose. In addition to encouraging the remodeling of existing collagen strands, ultrasound also heats the fibroblast cells that produce healthy, new collagen. This increase continues for several months, which is why it is said that results from the Ultherapy peak about 8 months after treatment.

An entire face and neck treatment are capable of lifting the brows, tightening the eyelids (both upper and lower), refining the jawline, and reducing the crepey appearance of skin on the chin and neck. About 90-minutes, once a year, for sustained skin tightness? Yes, please!

The last few weeks have borne witness to the global pandemic caused by the coronavirus known as COVID-19. This is a novel virus that we do not fully understand, but whose devastating effects have been felt around the world, with no regards for borders or economies. Our thoughts and prayers are with those whose lives have been forever changed by this pandemic. In the spirit of containing this pandemic, I, Dr. Bhandari, and our incredible family of dedicated professionals who make up Bucay Center for Dermatology and Aesthetics have made the difficult but necessary decision to keep our offices closed through April 3, pending any further developments.


Our goal is to ensure the safety and well being of our patients and our team. We are grateful to all of you for your loyalty and understanding and look forward to the time when we can resume doing what we do best - caring for you. Until then, please adhere to the recommended guidelines regarding handwashing and social distancing. Please remember that social distancing doesn't mean social isolation - the digital age allows us to be there for each other.


Warmest wishes to all of you for continued good health and strength,
