Is it best to get fillers before fraxel treatments?

As someone who wants to get rid of wrinkles in my face and also restore my natural glow and decrease the effects of sun damage, would it be better for me to get botox before fraxel? Is there a general rule of thumb or consensus amongst doctors on this?

We have the Botox 2 weeks before the fraxal laser treatment or 2 weeks after - with the before being better. The Botox won't help your skin glow, but will help decrease frown lines and crows feet.

I would recommend the fraxel first.  That way it won't disrupt any botox or fillers deep.
