A different kind of filler from your board-certified dermatologist in San Antonio
Young skin is soft, supple, smooth, and plump. It is supported by a strong collagen network, healthy elastin, and a thick underlying layer of fat. However, the composition of skin changes as we age. Time, sun exposure, and other factors can rob our skin of volume and youthful resilience. Dermal fillers are a popular way of reducing those signs of aging.
Most dermal fillers deliver instant results. You can walk out of our office with fuller lips, plumper cheeks, or reduced wrinkles. This “instant gratification” is fantastic for individuals who don’t like to wait, and those who need to look their best in time for a special event. However, not everyone is in a hurry. Perhaps you don’t want your dramatic change to be the topic of conversation around the water cooler, or maybe you are simply looking for a more subtle, natural solution.
You didn’t age suddenly. Why should you anti-age suddenly?
That is the question posed by Sculptra aesthetic. One of the newer products on the market, Sculptra was granted FDA approval for treating mild to deep nasolabial folds (also called smile lines) and other facial wrinkles. It is injected into the deep dermis, where it reinforces the skin’s structure. This stimulates production of healthy new collagen, gradually refining and improving facial contours.
When administered correctly, Sculptra can deliver beautiful, natural results that may last up to two years or longer. However, the quality of the result may vary, depending on the skill of the injector. The manufacturer advises that treatment should only be administered by a Sculptra Aesthetic trained provider.
Dr. Bucay is a board certified dermatologist and a Sculptra Aesthetic trained physician. She is also a certified Sculptra Aesthetic trainer – the only one in San Antonio, TX.
Dermal fillers and other dermatological treatments may be offered by non-core physicians, sometimes in a non-medical setting. However, as many patients learn, the result is not determined by the product but rather by the skill of the provider. Dr. Bucay is a board certified dermatologist, and Susan Lujan is a licensed medical aesthetician.
