Do I go back to my doctor that did a great job with my tear troughs or my new doctor cosmetic dermatologist? (Photo)

My 1st Doctor, who also performs eye surgeries, filled my tear troughs last June. I was very happy with the results! My tear troughs are coming back. I have also been going to another Dermatologist for botox and he did Voluma in January (which looks flawless and amazing). Do I go back to my doctor who originally did my tear through filler? From what I read, its a very hard area to treat. The only reason why I went to doctor #2 is because my #1 doctor does not use Voluma in his practice.

Treating Tear Trough

You are fortunate to have found two physician you like, both of whom appear to be quite competent.  All treatments carry risks. Choosing a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon is a good place to start.  A skilled physician will let you know if they are comfortable treating a particular area.  Have you asked Doctor #2 if he/she treats the tear trough area?  They may even be able to show you before and after photos of patients they have treated.  Then you can decide where you will be most comfortable having this treatment.  Best of luck.
