Synopsis

To get a smooth skin or eliminate cellulite it is no longer necessary, today, to go into the operating room for a facelift or a liposuction. Each year in France, nearly 400,000 people are injected anti-wrinkle products.

But are these new techniques which generate 4 billion euros in sales in Europe alone without risks? Have they been thoroughly tested by the health authorities? Are general practitioners properly trained?

These new beauty methods touted in so many women's magazines can carry a heavy and unforeseen price.
