“Dr. Porcaro talks about new products that restore lost volume to the skin. He is shown doing an actual Botox treatment on a woman. Dr Porcaro says that Botox makes people look more relaxed and less stressed and makes people feel better about themselves. A patient says that Dr Porcaro is a good Botox and fille injector. Dr Porcaro says fillers make people look refreshed and more youthful. Another patient says how happy she is with the eyelid lift Dr Porcaro performed. Dr Porcaro says that patient return for Botox and fillers no matter what the economy is like. Another patient talks about how Dr Porcaro helped restore her self esteem. Another patient says how friendly Dr Porcaro’s staff is, says she “comes just to visit sometimes”.

Hyaluronic acid is a natural polysaccharides, which in appropriate form is versatile soft tissue filler. Restylane is the hyaluronic acid being widely used for the management of wrinkles, fine lines, contour deformities, and volumetric deficiencies of face, cheeks, and lips associated with aging, developmental anomalies, and certain diseases.

Dr. Porcaro prefers Restylane as his preferred “go to” product for the tear trough deformity, also referred to as the infraorbital hallow. This tear trough deformity begins to become noticeably for some people in their 20′s. Certainly by the age of 40, we almost all develop this noticeable sign of aging. This tear trough deformity is most often associated with drooping of the cheeks, which occurs to us all as we age. This drooping of the cheeks “opens up” the tear trough & these same forces are transmitted down the face, making the smile lines (the nasolabial folds) more pronounced and also result in appearance of the “jowls”.

Restylane is great to fill in your tear trough deformity! Dr. Porcaro prefers to correct this area slowly, most often starting out with 1cc (1 syringe) and adding another syringe at a later date, if needed.

Technique:

Dr. John L. Porcaro coats your skin with a topical anesthetic, which is usually sufficient for your tient’s comfort, although a nerve block is preferable for lip enhancement.

Hyaluronic acid is a hydrophilic agent, which means that it attracts water much like a sponge. This expansion contributes to your final volume that is achieved. Therefore, under filling is necessary, and many patients will benefit from a touch up session in about three weeks after the first treatment.

It is especially effective for your nasolabial folds, lip augmentation, and areas of contour deformities. It is also an ideal adjunct for Botox treatment and is frequently used in conjunction with Botox to correct your lines and creases that persist.
