Treatment results

Immediate results

During the 3-week treatment, patients undergo dermatological evaluations in order to monitor the effectiveness of the treatment. For inflammatory dermatosis, this effectiveness is evaluated very accurately by physicians using specific “scores”. Results show reduced symptoms and improvements in the healing of lesions.

Long-term results

The positive results observed are confirmed and last for several months following treatment. The Avène physicians team has therefore established that, in chronic dermatosis cases, the quality of life improved significantly even six months following the end of treatment at the center.

Even though Avène Thermal Spring Water has yet to unveil all its secrets, most were uncovered in the past 30 years of research conducted by the Avène Dermatological Laboratories, part of the Pierre Fabre Group, and the numerous pharmacological and clinical studies.
