Your skin is an amazing organ. Its three layers, epidermis (outer), dermis (middle), and subcutaneous (deep), each serve vital functions. Skin helps to control body temperature, provides environmental protection, and cushions organs. It also plays a lead role in your appearance.
Collagen is an important component of healthy skin. This protein, residing in the dermis and subcutaneous layers, creates a mesh with elastin to give your skin structure. However, over time two things happen – that network breaks down, and your body begins to produce less collagen. Wrinkles, hollows, and sags appear.
Dr. Vivian Bucay has a powerful weapon to combat the attack of time and restore youthful facial contours – Sculptra Aesthetic. Its primary component is poly-L-lactic acid; a powdered form of the material used to make dissolving sutures. Through a series of injection sessions (usually three over the course of several months), which take place discreetly at Dr. Bucay’s office, she artistically places the product for a natural effect. Sculptra is FDA approved for nasolabial folds (those deep smile lines from the nose to mouth), marionettes (lines that frame the mouth), and chin wrinkles. It is also effective for filling hollowed temples and cheeks.
Most dermal fillers do just that – they add immediate volume at the injection site. Sculptra is different. It is a biostiumlator. It gradually encourages your body to boost production of collagen, reinforcing the substructure of the skin and providing a foundation for youthful volume. It takes a few months for collagen to build and full results to appear. Therefore, Sculptra is ideal for the patient who wants an effective but subtle outcome that lasts up to two years.
Dr. Bucay is a certified Sculptra Aesthetic trainer – the only one in San Antonio, Texas! As an experienced cosmetic dermatologist and a founding physician member of the Liquid Face Lift Association, Dr. Bucay uses Sculptra in combination with other non-surgical treatments for artistic rejuvenation. She has the breadth of knowledge to balance the attributes of skin tightening, fillers, neuromodulators, and resurfacing techniques with Sculptra’s gradual effect.
