Question: I am having Dermapen every 3 months for acne scarring. Is it safe to have dermal fillers as well?
Asked by delphie
I am also having TCA Cross and PRP every three months. I would like some kind of filler to treat the smoker's lines above my upper lip but I'm not sure if it is possible whilst having these other treatments.
Can you help out?

Hi Delphie - great question - I hope you are pleased with the results of the Dermapen so far as well as the peels.
Fillers should be fine to have during this treatment period.
I recommend an injectable hydrator such as Juvederm Hydrate which will help minimise the lines by improving the moisture levels in the skin for a fresher more youthful appearance.
Please see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPHMohpgXKs&feature=plcp for more on perioral rejuvenation and how it can benefit you - as well as a live demonstration of our team performing this treatment so you know what to expect on the day.
I hope this information helps and if you have any more queries please do not hesitate to get in touch

It is all about timing - as a general rule treatments can be combined but you should look at these as a planned course rather than something you have all in one go.
As you are already doing the skin rejuvination phase I would usually not recommend doing any filling until that phase is over - this is particulalry true if you are having dermaroller type therapy.
There is no fixed rule but it just seems illogical to be actively needling / peeling tissue you are also filling.
Claudia is out of the country but will be back on Thursday I shall pass your question to her as soon as she is back or you could email her direct on email@example.com as well if you would like to.
Dont do the filler with other treatment.For a safety better to finish on course of treatment ,and start another.
