What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal Fillers are a great nonsurgical alternative when it comes to tackling the early signs of ageing. They are an injectable treatment commonly used to smooth fine lines, lift and diminish wrinkles and restore a healthy, youthful glow to your complexion.

Commonly thought of as a facial treatment, Dermal Fillers can also be used in other areas such as the jawline, neck and hands. Dr Damon Thomas offers an array of options, customising each treatment according to each individual and their unique situation.

What happens during the procedure?

Dermal Filler procedures are relatively quick, with most patients describing their treatment as painless. Unlike surgical counterparts, Dermal Fillers do not offer a permanent result. However, they allow a gradual result to be achieved, letting you test the water for peace of mind. Although not permanent, the results are long-lasting, with the positive effects of the procedure evident months after the treatment is complete.

Dr Damon Thomas only offers the safest, best-quality Dermal Fillers, consisting of a natural substance found in the skin. During the treatment, Dr Thomas will carefully administer the Dermal Filler to your problem area, with care and precision. The down time will be minimal, and you will be able to return home post-procedure.

How do I know if Dermal Fillers are right for me?

The best way to determine whether Dermal Fillers are the perfect fit for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr Thomas. During this consultation, he will assess your skin and provide expert advice. Together, you will formulate a plan to achieve your aesthetic goals. This may consist of few or regular Dermal Fillers, or a supplement or complementary procedure or treatment to allow your goals to be reached.

If you have noticed smile lines near the corners of your mouth, deepening nasolabial folds (the crease between your nose and mouth), loss of volume around the cheeks, lips or temples, a decrease in definition or an overall sagging appearance around the jawline, Dermal Fillers could be the answer that you are looking for.

What does my recovery look like?

After your treatment is complete, you may be able to return to work immediately. Common side effects may include mild swelling at the site of the injection, however, this will diminish soon after the procedure, generally dissipating within a few hours.

Once recovered, you will notice the positive effects of your Dermal Fillers instantly. In fact, many patients note that they feel their results continue to improve for the weeks following the initial treatment. Depending on your unique situation, the type of Dermal Filler used and the area(s) treated, results may last between 6 months and 2 years, with periodic treatments ensuring the results stick around!
