As we age, Hyaluronic Acid (HA), the material supporting the layers of the skin begins to decrease. The way your skin looks is directly related to how the skin is supported. Dermal Fillers replace lost volume and restore youthful contours to the skin to smooth away moderate to severe facial wrinkles.
By injecting HA under the skin's surface, we can temporarily correct wrinkles. The results are immediate and last between 4 and 12 months depending on the product used. The procedure is simple and can be performed during your lunch hour.
HA can be used to fill in the smile lines (Nasolabial Folds), the frown lines between the eyes and the marionette lines that turn down the corners of the mouth. They can also be used to decrease or eliminate the fine "smokers lines" around the lips. We can also use fillers to augment the lips. HA can be used either alone or in combination with Botox.
There are many different types of fillers. Their use is determined by their thickness and particle size. Dr. DiPasquale is trained to help you decide which product is right for you based on an evaluation of your facial wrinkles and folds.
