For upper lip lines, how to best use Botox and Juvederm together?

I have deep upper lip lines that have been sucessfully treated with botox and juvederm. One nurse says to do the botox first and then the juvederm. Another says to do the juvederm first and then the botox treatment. Which is better? Thank you.

In general, it doesn’t matter.  You’ll get good results either way.  Remember that Botox takes about 5-7 days to take effect so you won’t see that at the treatment anyway.   One advantage of doing the Botox after the Juvederm is that since much of the Juvederm used now has lidocaine (numbing medication) in it, you won’t feel the Botox injections because you will be numb.  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
