Nestor Garcia Porcayo
Aesthetic Nurse Provider
Nestor is a national and internationally trained aesthetic injector and has been in the industry of aesthetics since 2019. Nestor was born in Cuernavaca, Mexico. After his family relocated to Chicago, they all eventually settled down in the Northwest Suburbs. He attended Northern Illinois University where he obtained his BSN. After graduation, he worked under the supervision of cardiovascular surgeons who performed Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT) and Sclerotherapy for 5 years. That’s when he discovered how important the use of energy in conjunction with other adjunct therapies is to achieve an improved look for varicose legs, which he will then incorporate into his aesthetic approach. In addition to working with a cardiovascular surgeon, he worked most of his nursing career caring for adults and pediatric populations in the Emergency and intensive care departments. Eventually, he obtained his MSN through Grand Canyon University. In the world of aesthetics, when performing a client consultation, Nestor’s stance is: “I must always set a baseline – realistic and achievable expectations. Additionally, in the same way, that we have compliant and non-compliant patients, we also identify and categorize good and Not good candidates for these types of procedures.” “I do not hesitate to turn clients away whose expectations are unrealistic or who aren’t willing to invest the time and dedication in themselves. In addition to setting up realistic expectations, I look at the client’s face (skin, texture, wrinkles, dis-chromas, asymmetries) and their context (drinking and smoking habits, etc) as one. This approach allows me to identify the proper approach to potentially achieve the client’s desired outcome. However, it doesn’t mean that injections and energy therapies are for everyone.”
Nestor’s commitment: “Unfortunately as we age, we all lose elastin and collagen while the fat pads in our face become smaller and slide down due to the lack of support. As injectors, it is our duty to remember that results may vary from client to client and not all clients are appropriate candidates for injectables or energy therapies. Having said that, energy, neurotoxins, and fillers/implants are a great way to achieve a younger, refreshed, and hydrated complexion without the downtime of surgery.” “We can also achieve a more harmonious and symmetrical look while protecting and preserving the essence and individual characteristics that make each of us unique.”
