What the expert says

“When one wishes to have injections of botulinum toxin or hyaluronic acid, it is essential to use the appropriate products before and after the procedure.  Indeed, before the aesthetic procedure, this will help prepare the skin. Post procedure, it is recommended that to apply a soothing cream in order to reduce the sensations of discomfort which can appear and to reduce downtime.  Thereafter, you could use a targeted anti-ageing skin care to optimise the results of the injections and help maintain their plumping effect.”

  • Do I do it or not?

    An aesthetic procedure is not an ordinary act. You have to address yourself to the right professionals.

    No way to look like a wax doll or that everyone realizes we just got a little extra help!

    Don’t hesitate making an appointment with your dermatologist or aesthetic physician, his professional diagnosis and expertise will answer all your questions!

  • Protect yourself and take action against sun

    Sun exposure leads to the production of free radicals and causes cell damage, two phenomena responsible for the appearance of wrinkles.

    If your skin is well-protected all year round, the cell structure will change less rapidly and your skin will remain smooth and supple for longer.

    So, combat photo-ageing by protecting your face all year round with an appropriate sun protection factor, not only during summertime but also on sunny days in autumn and winter, and as from spring with a sun protection factor of at least 30 and of 50 in summer!

    Combine very high protection and anti-wrinkle action by using RoC® Soleil-Protect Anti-Wrinkle Smoothing Fluid SPF 50+: formulated with hyaluronic acid, it visibly reduces wrinkles and fine lines, whilst protecting the skin’s youthful appearance. This sun care is ideal to complement your any of your daily PRO-CORRECT skincare products.

  • Hydrate yourself

    Did you know that skin which lacks water gets wrinkled sooner? A good water supply promotes the sound functioning of the skin cell processes and helps you keep a supple and elastic skin, longer.  So drink at least 1.5l of water per day. You can also enjoy drinking infusions of green tea, with anti-oxidant properties, or of centalla (centalla asiatica which you will find in pharmacies or at a herbalist) which stimulates the production of collagen.
