We all think about it ... To look at the faces of certain stars, inaccessible to the misdeeds of time, we start dreaming of eternal youth. And after all, why not ? Botox® versus Faust, it deserves to stop there for a moment ...
All you need to know about Botox®: Know how this product works, how the treatment works, its possible side effects and contraindications. Know that officially, we should speak of botulinum or botulinum acid (we see written these two names to talk about the same product). Because in reality, when an esthetic practitioner uses botulinum acid, he does not use the Botox® product, but a product of another brand name (there are several) authorized to be used for aesthetic care.
This treatment, along with the one that uses hyaluronic acid, are the most used to reduce the presence of wrinkles on the face.
Be warned, these treatments are quite expensive, and are of course not reimbursed by the Health Insurance. They will have to be renewed ...
Have more practical information on the price, the duration of the effects of Botox® injections, the doctor to consult ... and the testimony of a patient with whom it worked!
