Members of the American Academy of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery learn about a new method for injecting Restylane.
Online PR News – 22-May-2012 – Denver, CO – Denver, CO - Dr Michael McCracken was invited to lecture before a meeting of the ASOPRS (the American Academy of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery) in Tuscon this past weekend. Dr. McCracken presented his technique of injecting Restylane into the “tear trough” using a “cannula”, which is a thin tube.
Dr. McCracken discussed the benefits of using Restylane vs other fillers (it is natural and normally found in the skin, it is very safe, and it can be dissolved with an enzyme), he says. Attendees of the meeting viewed a brief video showing Dr. McCracken performing the Restylane cannula technique with a patient.
“The cannula method is used to place Restylane or other dermal fillers in under-eye bags and cheeks to add volume,” says Dr. McCracken. “This eliminates the need for multiple needle injections, so bruising which is common with these treatments is reduced or eliminated. The person can go right back to regular activities,” says Dr. McCracken. “This technique provides excellent results for my patients who are able to return to regular activities with no downtime,” he says.
ASOPRS is a selective group of about 500 surgeons who have been specially trained in surgery of the eyes and face. It is the most exclusive group of eyelid surgeons.
Dr. McCracken says that Restylane can be used to correct many signs of the aging face including to smooth lines and wrinkles, fill in “hollowed” areas, reduce the appearance of lower lid bags and to restore fullness and balance to the face.
