Avoid Dangerous Injectables by Using a Licensed Provider

If we've said it once, we've said it a million times: Only use licensed providers for plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures. This includes Botox and dermal fillers. Why? Injecting Botox or anything into your face or body is serious business, and if you use someone who does not have the level of training or the experience of Dr. Peterson, you may end up with a fake product and dangerous complications.


Use a Licensed Provider. The No. 1 way to guarantee the products you are getting are the real deal is to make an appointment with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Peterson. Find licensed providers online by searching through organizations like the American Board of Medical Specialties, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons or your state medical board. Don't just settle for products from your friend's cousin's neighbor's sister who cuts hair and does injectables on the side.

Check the Box. Did you know that there are fake fillers and black-market Botox floating around out there? Minimize your risk of getting bootleg (or potentially dangerous) product by checking the box the product came in. Any responsible provider will show you the packaging. Look for the manufacturer name and distinguishing marks, such as holograms, on the box.

Low-Cost May Mean High-Risk. Is your local spa offering a deal on dermal fillers? Put the phone down and keep reading. Extremely low prices are a red flag, as most providers pay around the same amount for products from the manufacturer.

Know Before You Go. Knowing what should happen before you go under the needle can help you recognize if something is amiss with your product or your provider. You should not experience too much pain, and if you have symptoms after the procedure that includes bruising, swelling and redness that does not go away within a few days, you may have a problem. Other signs your product may be problematic include hard or irregular contours in treatment areas and changes in sensation, vision or function. If you experience any of these symptoms, seek medical attention.

Are you looking for dermal fillers, Botox or other injectables from a licensed provider? Look no further than Dr. Peterson. Schedule an appointment today by calling 785-783-4583.
