A pioneer in the extraction of biopolymers, which pertains to any foreign material introduced to the body that elicits a bodily rejection, he has dedicated the last 15 years towards the perfecting of his craft in this area. In this time, he has developing new specialized techniques that safely facilitate the minimally invasive removal of these foreign substances illegally introduced into the bodies of patients around the world. Dr. Antún has treated thousands of patients who have been conned by unqualified practitioners into receiving injections of synthetic oil, cement, expansive cells (mislabeled as hyaluronic acid), and other substances into the face, abdomen, breasts, buttocks, genitals, legs, and ankles.
The use of Cool Laser treatments towards the extraction of biopolymers means patients are able to be rid of a majority of injected substances in a minimally invasive procedure. In this manner, open surgery is avoided, bypassing the risk of deformities and various aesthetically unfavorable complications. If biopolymers are found in the buttocks, a butt lift procedure is performed following their extraction. After the aforementioned surgery is completed, Dr. Antún’s experienced team of highly qualified aestheticians use an array of the latest medical equipment as part of the patient aftercare process, to bring about complete satisfaction and the best results possible.
He has participated in numerous cosmetic programs recognized by the AACS in both the US and Latin America, and has been the lead speaker in multiple academic conferences in regard to the elimination of biopolymers through his use of the Cool Laser treatment.
