The principle behind botulinum protein (Botox®) is the use of its muscle-relaxing properties to rejuvenate the face. It is one of the most innovative therapies of the last 20 years. A revolution in the treatment of the upper third of the face.


The neuromodulation induced by this protein restores the muscular balance between the elevator and depressor muscles.

The face will thus express more positive emotions.

The aim is most often to reduce the action of the muscles in the forehead and eyebrows, in order to reduce both the horizontal and vertical wrinkles caused by the contraction of these muscles.

Botox smoothes the skin’s contours, thereby achieving a rejuvenating effect by releasing muscle tension.

Horizontal wrinkles are caused by contraction of the forehead muscle, which elevates the eyebrows. Vertical wrinkles between the eyebrows are caused by the contraction of the lowering muscles. The aim is to treat the muscular balance and thus harmonise the face.


How does a Botox session work?

Arnica Montana may be prescribed to reduce the risk of bruising before the injection of botulinum toxin (Botox ®).
No anaesthetic is required.

However, the most sensitive patients can be provided an anaesthetic ointment on the areas to be treated before the injection session. The treatment lasts approximately 20 minutes.

Botox generally remains the best treatment for the upper third of the face.

The sessions take place in the medical practice of Dr Olivier CLAUDE, Plastic Surgeon, at 124 Rue de la Faisanderie – Paris 16th

What to do after Botox injections?

For 24 hours following Botox ® injections, we recommend that you refrain from intensive sport.

The after-effects of these injections are usually negligible. Patients can resume their normal activities after injections of botulinum protein (Botox ®).

Some very rare undesirable effects may appear (bruising or oedema). These are very short-termed.

Botox remains the world’s leading treatment, and is the most interesting therapeutic innovation for upper facial treatment.

What results can we expect?

The result is a reduction in wrinkles, while maintaining the ability to make small movements: this is obtained three to fifteen days after the injections. Dr Olivier CLAUDE is a French expert in plastic surgery and aesthetic medicine.

He regularly trains colleagues at university courses and international conferences. He may also suggest botulinum protein injections for the lower third of the face and the neck to reduce negative emotional expressions in these areas.

When will the first results show?

Results are visible after 15 days.

The effects on the face may vary before eventually stabilising. The results obtained after the first session last on average 4 to 6 months, after which the injection of botulinum protein (Botox ®) can be renewed.

After the second injection of botulinum protein (Botox ®), the results may last longer (6 to 8 months).

Botox injections should not be started too late; Dr Olivier CLAUDE often advises his patients to have Botox injections from the age of 35. Injections started early help prevent the signs of ageing from appearing.

Are there any imperfections after a Botox injection?

In a few cases, localised imperfections (persistence of small fine lines) may be observed without constituting real complications. They depend on the appearance of the surface of the skin, which may show an indelible “break” due to the age of the wrinkle before the botulinum toxin (“Botox ®”) injections. These static wrinkles can be filled by hyaluronic acid injections or a peel.

Botox neuromodulation is a “made-to-measure” treatment. Each patient will need a personalised treatment plan to achieve a natural, harmonious result.
