As interesting as this year has been, its effects have led many people to become more focused on attending to their beauty and dermatologic needs. There is no reason to forego looking and feeling your best even as you may be learning to work remotely or provide more assistance to your school-aged children. In our San Antonio offices, we help our patients do just that. Whether your goal is to give your skin a boost of radiance, address a dermatologic concern such as acne or rosacea, or correct the signs of aging that have become impossible to ignore, we’ve got you covered. Here, we outline a few of the quick and effective ways we can help you bring out the best in your skin.
Dermal fillers and injectables like Botox have become the mainstay of non-surgical beauty treatments over the past several years. Annually, millions of filler sessions take place. These products are made for immediate, natural-looking results. Most work by depositing tiny particles of hyaluronic acid beneath the skin. Here, the particles bind to water molecules, increasing the volume of tissue. Dr. Bucay is familiar with many of the most popular dermal fillers, including those in the Juvéderm and Restylane families, Sculptra, Radiesse, and Belotero.
While most injectables are recognized as wrinkle-reducers, there is one we must mention that is set apart from others. Kybella is not a dermal filler but a fat-reducing injectable that is FDA-approved for the treatment of a double chin. Kybella works by breaking down the walls of fat cells beneath the chin so the body can absorb and flush them. The results of Kybella can be permanent with good lifestyle habits.
High-Tech Facial Rejuvenation
As convenient as dermal fillers are, these products cannot achieve every cosmetic goal a person has. As your skin has aged, you may have noticed the development of spots, rough texture, and laxity. These are problems that respond well to modalities that increase cellular turnover and promote increased collagen production. Some of the therapies that are available in our San Antonio cosmetic dermatology practice include:
- Laser Genesis
- Fraxel Dual
- Genius RF microneedling
- Laser skin resurfacing
Your skin is always changing based on your biochemistry and environmental factors. Your board-certified dermatologist Dr. Vivian Bucay can develop a treatment plan that caters to your skin’s needs. To schedule your consultation, contact our Sonterra or La Casita office today.
