To know

In fact, the various Botoxes, namely the original BOTOX, DYSPORT, VISTABEL, XEOMIN, and others to come, are screened by the French drug agency AFSSAPS, and the European agency.
They have obtained prescription authorisations for several disabling diseases with spectacular results, particularly in neurology.

The doses used in aesthetic indications are much lower than the usual medical doses. As a result, there are no serious side effects described in the treatment of wrinkles with Botox, no reported allergies and exceptional efficacy.

The aim of the treatment is not the paralysis of the muscles of expression but a decrease in the tone of these muscles, a hypotonia, which allows a very spectacular attenuation of the wrinkles while keeping the mobility and the facial mimicry.
The sessions take place 2 to 3 times a year, in a chair, by surgeons or doctors with a precise knowledge of the anatomy of the face and neck.

For people who are sensitive to small punctures, we can apply an anaesthetic cream which makes the session painless.
