Combination filler and botox for facial symmetry
Botox and Fillers in your 20's
I would recommend a combination of Botox in your upper face and Masseter muscle and Voluma to give you a little lift and beautiful results. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
Botox and Filler
These things are a bit tricky to explain across a computer screen. Hopefully this will be helpful. The general algorithm is that Botox is effective in the “upper ⅓” of the face: forehead lines, crow’s feet, and lines between the eyebrows. These lines are “dynamic” lines, caused by underlying muscle contractions. By relaxing the associated muscles, Botox smoothens the upper ⅓ of the face.
“Static” lines in the lower face, such as the nasolabial folds, are amenable to facial filler. Per your concerns, filler may also be used to enhance the malar (cheek) area.
Hope this is helpful. Best wishes. Dr. Shah

Thank you for your question.
It is very common to have facial asymmetry and a difference in muscle movement on each side of the face. It is difficult to provide a treatment plan without a full assessment. If this is something that bothers you, it may be helpful to discuss subtle options for injectable treatment, (both Filler and Botox or Dysport for example.) with a skilled injector, and then decide if that's the right option for you.
All the best.

WHen it comes to facial symmetry, no one really has it. One side is usually larger than the other. A brow might be higher on one side. The corner of the mouth may be higher. A cheek bone may be larger. It is important to realize that a goal of perfect symmetry is nearly unattainable and it has to do with embryology. So if your goal is to be perfectly symmetric, there really isn't any treatment that will do that for you.
As far as what an be done, for the under eye area you can try to conceal the circles with make up, fill the area with the shadow with fillers to make the shadow less noticeable, or undergo a surgery to get rid of the root cause of the eye bags which is casting the shadow. To verify you have a bag there casting the shadow, an in person evaluation would be needed. It is also possible to simply have a bluish color under the eye from blood vessels getting blocked up. In this case the use of topical products that cause blood vessels to shrink, allergy medicine, and make up may be the better option.
If you are considering Botox, it is designed to minimize muscle activity and the wrinkles that develop with activity.
What I'd recommend is you consult with a facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon to learn about the non surgical options as well as the surgical options so you can make an informed decision on what you'd like to do.
I hope this helps and good luck.
Botox is used to soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, where as fillers are used to add volume. To be sure what is best for you, see two or more board-certified providers in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have treatment. I hope this helps.
