As we age, the face naturally loses volume. Injectable fillers can help restore a look of fullness, with long-lasting results. They are an excellent way to rejuvenate the face, lips, and hands without invasive surgical procedures. Fillers also work to improve skin quality over time.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Hyaluronic Acid exists in the human body naturally. In the skin, it attracts and maintains water. As we age, the skin will naturally lose volume. Hyaluronic acid works to address volume loss, filling face lines, folds, wrinkles, and thin lips. These injectables can also be used to fill in depressed scars and address asymmetry. Your DLC provider will determine the right filler for your needs.

The RHA® Collection
RHA® is Resilient Hyaluronic Acid, and represents the latest advancement in HA filler science. RHA is formulated to treat dynamic wrinkles and folds resilient enough to adapt to your facial movement providing a natural result which is beautiful at rest, and flawless in motion.
Dynamic wrinkles and folds appear in areas of the face that move repetitively. Your face is dynamic, making millions of movements and micro-movements every day. Movements like squinting, frowning, laughing, and talking create dynamic wrinkles and folds. These wrinkles and folds can be difficult to treat because dermal fillers may cause the area to appear stiff or unnatural when the face moves.
The difference between RHA and other hyaluronic dermal fillers is the fewer chemical modifications and crosslinking in longer chains of HA. This helps preserve the natural, longer chains of the HA, helping it mimic the natural HA found in your skin for a more natural and beautiful tissue integration. The RHA® Collection is designed to be long lasting—with proven clinical effectiveness and duration up to 15 months.
DLC is one of the few aesthetic practices in the country to have access to RHA fillers. The RHA Collection is an addition to the fillers offered at DLC, not a replacement.
Radiesse is a filler made of synthetic calcium hydroxyapatite, which stimulates the production of collagen. Calcium hydroxyapatite is a mineral that occurs naturally in bones. Radiesse can be used to contour the jaw, chin, and neck, and is also commonly used for hand rejuvenation. Results can last for up to a year.
Sculptra is a biostimulating filler for the face and body. It contains poly-L-lactic acid, which stimulates collagen production in the injected area resulting in a fuller, more youthful appearance. Sculptra may also be used in the décolleté (upper chest and cleavage), where it improves the look of crepey skin and wrinkles. It can also be used around the mouth for smile and laugh lines. Results appear gradually over the treatment regime (typically three injections over the course of three to four months) and can last up to two years.
An injector’s expertise is a crucial component in getting the results you want from injectable fillers. Filler injections are a medical procedure that require specific training, knowledge, and skill to administer safely and effectively. Dr. Adigun is a highly skilled injector with knowledge of facial anatomy, injection techniques, and artistic precision needed to deliver natural results. Dr. Adigun will evaluate your needs and decide which filler is most suitable to achieve the optimal desired outcome.
