Services - Cosmetic Procedures - Filler Injections

Dr. Peterson offers a wide range of facial fillers to customize product to fit your specific needs. These are all in-office procedures that can be done during your initial consultation appointment.  Treatment and recovery are usually less than one hour. All facial filler procedures can have redness and bruising as a side effect that should resolve in a short period.  We recommend that you discontinue use of non-steroidal medicines such as Ibuprofen, Aleve and aspirin as well as supplements such as ginseng, ginkgo, green tea and fish oil one week prior to injection to minimize bruising.

Radiesse® is a dermal filler made from calcium hydroxylapatite in a water-based gel. This product is a deep filler used for significant facial folds and for sculpting of cheeks. The FDA has approved addition of lidocaine to the product for increased comfort during injection. Radiesse is also a painless way to minimize the visual aging of hands. This product will last 9-12 months.

Juvéderm Ultra XC™ is a hyaluronic acid gel from a natural complex sugar. It is a good choice for medium depth facial folds around the nose and mouth, upper lip lines and lip augmentation. The XC following the name means that lidocaine numbing has been added directly to the product for increased comfort during injection. This product will last 6-9 months.

If you want to restore volume to the cheek area, VOLUMA™ XC is a newly approved option. This new product from Juvéderm is an injectable gel that sustains volume in the mid-face. Adding this filler to the cheek area will restore a smooth, youthful contour to your face. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC lasts up to 2 years.

Dr. Peterson personally injects all product so you can be sure of a professional result.
