I’ve had Juvederm (Voluma) and the softer type put in my face. Can I mix other types or stick with one brand?

A patient asked 4 years ago
I had my cheeks done , lips , smile lines all done in dec/Jan thus year. I’m so impressed except the doctor sucked at the smile lines but admitted he didn’t like doing them. So now I’m so happy with the rest I want my hollow eyes done and maybe more in my cheeks and lip. I see many salons using diff brands near me. Can I get another type or do I need to stick to what’s already there. I don’t wanna create any problems.

Combining Various Fillers

 
Hi and thank you for your question! There shouldn’t be any concerns with combining various types of fillers and it’s actually even a preferred method. There are many different types of fillers and each are generally preferred for certain areas, so experienced physicians chose their filler carefully and individually based on the area and desired results. For under eyes, we generally use “softer” fillers such as Restylane Silk, Belotero or Volbella while for cheeks (and lips) fillers such as Voluma or Juvederm Ultra Plus work nicely. In any case, please make sure to work with a highly experienced physician who can show you several before and after pictures of similar patients. I hope it helps and good luck!
