Filler in Eye Area First or Chemical Peel?

Results from fillers and chemical peels are so different so choose wisely
There are different components of aging: wrinkles, discoloration, volume loss, and loss of elasticity.
Chemical peels correct the texture of the skin: discoloration and smoothness.
Fillers add volume to a hollow area and make it look youthful.
Have a consultation first with someone reputable in Greece- -don't just jump into it!
Fraxel Dual is a better bet than chemical peels for lower eyelids
I would always augment and volumize before doing resurfacing
Aging is in a large part due to a volume loss within the face. As we age we lose fat within our face, our bones get smaller and our skin thickness goes down too. A simple way to look at it is that we change slowly from a grape to a raisin.
Resurfacing in my opinion should always be done after you volumize or reshape a certain area. This is more applicable to more permanent or semi permanent filling and reshaping procedures such as face lifting and fat grafting to the face. But I generally follow that same principle even with fillers. Many times you will find that you will need to do less resurfacing after these more permanent procedures and semi permanent procedures.
Also, after these reshaping procedures, the wrinkles are less prominent and also respond better to resurfacing procedures like chemical peels and laser resurfacing because more of the surface becomes exposed.

Fillers and chemical peel timing
You can do either one first, and you can do both together. If doing both together, it is probably better to do the filler first so that you donot have to inject through injured skin or swollen tissues.
