Layering Dermal Fillers Can Give Optimal Results
Working with your dermatologist, different fillers are often layered together to create volume in your face and also to stimulate collagen production. Different HA fillers have unique properties so they each work best in different areas of the face. It is quite common to mix and match them. However, Aliaxin is not FDA approved in the United States. If you have moved here from another country, it is important to discuss all the fillers you have used so your doctor can treat accordingly. Your prior fillers will indeed eventually break down over time, as will the new ones, but layering them does not cause the old ones to break down. During your consultation, your dermatologist will evaluate the condition of your skin and plan the best way to add shape and volume to your cheek area. Please be sure to consult and work with a board-certified dermatologist with years of expertise in using dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Voluma, Restylane and Sculptra.
Mixing Fillers/Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
I often mix fillers and layer them or use them in combination to get the best results. With so many great injectables now on the market, one of the advantages of consulting with an expert is that that they know how to combine the best treatments and how to use the different injectables to get the best cosmetic results. Voluma, Juvederm, Restyalne Silk, and Sculptra area all different types of products that I layer in my practice. Best, Dr. Green
Voluma and other thinners
I would suggest you discuss your concern regarding your prior treatment with a dermatologist that has experience with Voluma. We do use it with other fillers used in different areas.
