Would a hydrating complex be as good as a filler?

Hello Dr. Irwin, I use skin medica ( luv it)...What do you think of the Hydrating Complex.. I don't use fillers but would this work as well on top of the skin. Thank you

For dryness or very fine lines, use a great moisturizer – the SkinMedica one is good.   For true wrinkles, no cream will be able to compare to a filler at this point in time.  The filler will be more effective.   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!
