No problem.: It is common to use both of these in the same patient.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

Yes: Botox is used to relax or paralyze certain muscles of expression that cause deep wrinkles or worry lines (ie: glabella, forehead, crows's feet). Renova is tretinoin, a derivative of vitamin a, which is topically as an anti-aging cream, to minimize pores, and to help with sun damage and age spots, and acne or whiteheads/blackheads. These products are complementary to one another.

Absolutely: Botox is a protein that is injected into facial muscles in order to relax them such that overlying wrinkles or lines will become less apparent or inapparent. Renova is tretinoin, which is a Vitamin A derivative used on skin to reduce acne, smooth the skin and reduce signs of aging. These are commonly used in the same patient. The effects of the 2 drugs complement one another. Take care!
