RecoSMA™ technology, advanced technology for cellular renewal.
The Butterfly centre wishes to offer its patients the best in technology with a patented state-of-the-art laser device: the RecoSMA™ laser.
With short pulses, the laser acts on the tissues in depth, leading to stimulation of the collagen in the dermis. Your skin will be able to renew itself and scars will fade. In a few sessions, your scars fade and your skin becomes smoother, more harmonious.
The laser is a non-invasive method that gives excellent results without social exclusion. You can have your session during the day and resume your activities immediately afterward. A treatment takes 30 minutes on average, depending on the type of treatment and the size of the area to be treated. You should count on between 3 and 7 sessions to achieve optimal results.
In the Butterfly centre, all laser treatments are performed only by experienced doctors who will advise you on the most appropriate treatment.

Scars are a central focus of aesthetic medicine treatments.
Consultations involving unsightly injuries are very common. Scars due to surgical procedures are a major concern for practitioners or patients undergoing medical or plastic surgery. Scars have various origins: traumatic, induced, visible, hidden, hypertrophic and keloid. A distinction must be made between treatment of existing scars and postoperative scars.
Our team will discuss this with you to determine the pathological aspect of your scar. Scars can be unesthetic because related to a medical history, but they can also be unsightly, uncomfortable or too visible. A pathological scar is characterised by a complex healing process.

Stretch marks are very common. They appear when there is a weight change. They are the result of a weight loss or gain. The situations most often encountered can be varied: the consequences of a major weight loss, pregnancy, puberty, and after surgery related to obesity.
The locations of stretch marks vary, but they are found mainly on the chest, abdomen, hips and buttocks. They are an expression of the stress on the skin by releasing deep fibres (collagen and elastin). The redraping capacity of an area with stretch marks is not very good. Inspection of the stretch marks is important for better care; our medical team will examine your stretch marks and rule out the rare endocrine causes of stretch marks. Subsequently, the reason for the stretch marks will be explained and the treatment options can be evaluated.
Prevention, which is often forgotten, is highly effective. Weight fluctuations are significant and predictable; it makes sense to think of massaging the skin to stimulate regeneration. Moisturisation is also very important. These two simple acts can limit the extent of stretch marks.
Stretch marks should be treated as soon as possible. The application of anti-inflammatory cream calms the underlying healing process, and the centre offers an aesthetic treatment for permanently entrenched stretch marks.
The two main aetiologies found are the keloid scar and the hypertrophic scar. The first corresponds to a genuine tumoral process that is difficult to treat, the second to an inflammation that continues over time. After analysis and depending on the case, a treatment such as the laser, surgical revision with adjuvant treatment, or a more complex treatment such as radiotherapy for some keloid scars can be proposed after multidisciplinary analysis.

Acne scars of the skin can lead to changes in the appearance, volume and movement of the skin. Surface treatment of acne scars consists of changing the colour of the scar and inducing or reducing the collagen in the underlying tissue.
Filling due to a lack of volume requires filling the atrophic areas, or sometimes a reduction of volume with thick, hypertrophic or keloid scars. Problems of movement in acne scars can benefit from the effect of botulinum toxin.
The principle of anti-acne medical lasers consists of attacking the main causes of the pathology. Lasers can destroy the germs found in acne through a controlled heating effect; the laser beam destroys the bacteria and so slows the inflammatory or infectious process causing the visible eruptions of acne.
On another level, lasers, especially deeply penetrating lasers, have the property of selectively causing lesions in the sebaceous glands. When they are hit by the laser light, the glands undergo changes similar to sclerosis.
