Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected under the skin to smooth out lines and creases, restore lost volume, or enhance facial contours. They are often created with hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that attracts and binds water, which results in added volume.

Dermal fillers can be used to treat many different issues, including:

  • Lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth.
  • Lost youthful volume in the cheeks or mid-face area.
  • Vertical lip lines.
  • Thin or thinning lips.
  • Chin creases.
  • Asymmetrical facial features.

Nothing but praise for Charlottesville Plastic Surgery. Dr. Willis explained everything he needed to do clearly and his work was top-notch. When needed he made an immediate referral for me and explained exactly what I would expect from that. Great communication, efficient office.

I have had the best experience with Dr. Willis and Leah. I have had filler, Dysport, and I've been under the knife with Dr. Willis and I've been so happy with all of my results. I actually feel like a part of their family, I can call whenever I need anything and they both make me feel like they care about me and my results.

Dr. Willis and his staff were amazing! Very calm, clean and professional atmosphere. They were inviting and attentive. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I went in for a consultation and had my lip filler procedure in the same day. Quick and painless. The results are perfect. I highly recommend Dr.Willis and taking advantage of the referral program. 10/10!

Dr.Willis and staff are incredible! They treat their patients with such high respect and make you feel right at home during your procedure. They are experienced and dedicated to making things right. You leave the office feeling really good about yourself and the work they’ve performed! I’ve had Fillers and Botox but would recommend anything!

What to Expect With Dermal Fillers

At Charlottesville Plastic Surgery, you have the benefit of receiving injectables and fillers at a plastic surgeon-owned and operated medspa. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Willis and our injector will discuss your options for dermal fillers to develop a customized treatment plan that meets your goals.

During a dermal filler appointment, a topical numbing cream will first be applied to the treatment area to ensure that you are comfortable during the injections. Then, the dermal filler of your choice will be skillfully injected using a very fine needle into the appropriate areas. Overall treatment time will vary depending on the number of treatment areas and the amount of change desired.

There is no downtime needed after derma filler injections, though temporary swelling, redness, bruising, and tenderness may occur. We do advise that you avoid strenuous activity directly after treatment until the swelling goes down.
