In brief: 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.

In brief: 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!
