Can you use Botox or Dysport near areas where Voluma or other fillers are?

I've had voluma filler into my cheeks..would I be able to get Botox or dysport in the lines around my eyes close to the cheek area or is that not going to work with the voluma already in place there?

Yes!!!  This is not a problem generally.   They work in completely different ways and are very compatible.    Just be wary of the overfilled, over Botoxed look that comes from too much filler in the cheeks, especially if the filler is placed only in the “apple” nearer the nose.  If there’s is no movement around the eyes and too much filler in the cheeks, it starts to look stuffed and mannequin like!   More answers to readers on Voluma

Your doctor should check the filler placement as they are working.  It helps if they stop part way through or near the end, and have you smile and then talk to make sure it looks good when your face is moving, as well as at rest.

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?!
