Is it okay to have micro-needling treatment after fillers injection?

Micro-needling in the area of filler injections
Regarding Dr. Kaplan's comment about preferring fractional laser resurfacing to micro-needling, medical micro-needling, when properly done and combined with effective skin care products such as human growth-factor serums, can give as good or better results than fractionated laser treatments and at a fraction of the cost! Micro-needling works by stimulating the skin to trigger the release of growth factors to create more collagen and elastic fibers, resulting in thicker, healthier looking skin. Lasers can only work by damaging the skin to cause the same effect.

Volume fillers after microneedling
It is best to wait for skin to heal after microneedling before volume fillers are injected.
There are many treatments and combining best will give you the best outcome. Combination treatment will be needed like Clear + Brilliant laser, microneedling and eMatrix.
Microneedling + PRP is better than microneedling alone.

We prefer fractional laser resurfacing to microneedling, but always place the dermal fillers after the resurfacing treatments.
