Fillers! What are they? Well, there are several types, but at d’lux we use the two safest! Most of
our dermal fillers used at d’lux are made from hyaluronic acid (HA). It’s a substance that is
naturally produced in your body. Yep, that’s right we make Hyaluronic Acid in our very own
bodies! It’s a clear, gooey, complex sugar that is mainly found in your skin, connective tissue and
eyes. It’s main function is to retain water and keep the above mentioned areas lubricated. Welp,
we have also found that if when you make it outside the body it also is great to reverse the signs
of aging by restoring volume and structure to the face. Hyaluronic Acid in the body looks very
similar to the Hyaluronic Acid we have in syringes, but manufactured Hyaluronic Acid comes in
various consistency, characteristics and sizes. This is because all Hyaluronic Acid is not the
same. Think of an Artist who has different mediums to create different art. That is exactly how
expert injectors view filler. Depending if we are working on temples, cheeks, undereyes, lips
jawline or chin depends on the “medium” we choose. You don’t have to worry about choosing
which filler is right for you and whatever your aesthetic goals are. We will help you and we will
choose the filler or fillers together.



While we are talking about choices let’s chat about another dermal filler made of another
substance! The other filler we caring at d’lux is called Sculptra. Sculptra is made of Poly-L-
Lactic Acid (PLLA). PLLA is one of the most well-researched, safe, and most common
polymers used for biodegradable medical products that are available. What did I just say? PLLA
is a synthetic substance made to replicate lactic acid. Lactic acid is made in our muscles (another
product naturally made within our bodies) after exercise. PLLA is lactic acid molecules strung
together in strings (a polymer). Polylactic acid has been used for more than 25 years in
dissolvable stitches, bone screws and plates, and also a way to administer medication. It has
since been used an injectable solution called, Sculptra, that simulates the production of
collagen.Sculptra is not to be considered equivalent to collagen dietary supplements, which are
meant to facilitate the production of collagen within the body. However, collagen is a protein
that, when ingested, is broken down by the digestive system. Results for these types of
treatments are inconclusive. As for traditional collagen creams, their purpose is to deliver
collagen that is absorbed by the skin. However, collagen molecules are too large to penetrate the
dermis (skin) so they typically improve skin’s appearance only briefly. Sculptra is different and
works with your body deep within the skin, rather than topically, to help revitalize collagen
production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume. Results appear gradually
over time and can last up to two years. The most popular area to treat with Sculptra is the
temples, cheeks and buttocks. Thats right, its also the key to a plump and youthful bum. Like
mentioned above this is just another medium for an artist and each patient will be assessed to
decide if Sculptra is appropriate for the patient’s aesthetic goals.
