I would like to come and visit with you from about 50 miles away. Can you do both a laser facial procedure and filler injections at the same time...I have heard that laser treatments affect fillers...is there any truth to this?

sorry for the delay,
i do laser and fillers on the same day without trouble.
its just that its better to do laser first and then do the fillers if its going to be the same day.
otherwise, there have been studies that show that lasers do not affect fillers.
