Dr. POIGNONEC’s opinion
Botox® is very popular because it gives a lifting effect, without surgery, which lasts several months. Beware however of exotic toxins sold on the Internet at very low prices and whose quality leaves something to be desired.– Docteur POIGNONEC plastic surgeon in Paris

Botulinum toxin

Smoothes fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes – reduces dark circles.
Better known as Botox®, botulinum toxin remains the number one method of treating facial wrinkles. It weakens the muscle and erases wrinkles by opening the eyes.

Pulsed light

Sun and age spots, couperose, pregnancy spots, permanent hair removal, pulsed light, also called flash light, can be applied all over the body, especially the face, hands and décolleté. It gradually replaces the laser, because the risk of burns is exceptional.

Dr. POIGNONEC’s opinion
Pulsed light also has a positive side effect: it regenerates the skin, closes dilated pores and gives radiance. However, it should be avoided on dark or coloured skins.– Docteur POIGNONEC Plastic surgeon in Paris

By choosing a qualified and competent practitioner, trained in this type of treatment, you limit these risks as much as possible without however completely eliminating them. In any case, if you have any concerns after these injections, do not hesitate to contact the plastic and aesthetic surgeon.

Laser hair removal:

Why should it be done by a doctor?

The use of the laser in France must be performed by a doctor in medicine, trained for this type of gesture because it is an act that is not without risks (risk of burns). Moreover, only a doctor can detect a hormonal pathology (hair growth).

Side effects and complications of botulinum toxin

Complications are very rare, here are the possible known complications:

Some rare side effects may occur:

Side effects are transient. This may include:

  • Redness: localized redness at injection sites has sometimes been reported and rarely persists beyond 3-6 days.
  • Ecchymoses (“bruises”): bruises are in fact rarely observed in the injection areas and may last a few days.
  • oedemas: swelling, most often around the eyes, may develop gradually over 4 to 5 days, then decrease in a few days to a few weeks.
  • Sensitivity disorders: a sensation of tension or fixity of the forehead, mouth or neck, depending on the areas injected, as well as a change in sensitivity often linked to a sensation of cardboarding may persist for several days.
  • Fugitive ocular or facial pain: such pain has been described in the injected areas in a quite exceptional way.

What are the general complications:

They are quite exceptional.

  • Allergic reaction : rash, hives, general allergic reaction.
  • Nausal, dizziness
  • Tiredness, fever, flu syndrome
  • Dry skin or dry mouth.

In addition to these known risks, there are unpredictability of duration and aspects, and finally, exceptional risks, even unknown risks inherent in any medical procedure. All in all, we must not overestimate the risks, but simply become aware that a medical-surgical act, even a seemingly simple one, always involves a small proportion of risks. Using a qualified practitioner ensures that they have the training and skills required to avoid these complications, or treat them effectively if necessary.
