At the end of the hydrotherapy treatment

  • From the very first treatments, Avène thermal spring water produces its soothing, anti-irritant and antipruritic effects on chronic dermatoses. Once the treatment has concluded very significant improvements are seen in both children and adults.
  • A study conducted over eight seasons on over 10,000 patients suffering from atopic dermatitis, 30% of them children, demonstrated the benefits of the hydrotherapy treatments with a reduction of more than 41.6% in the clinical scores (measured by SCORAD - SCORing Atopic Dermatitis).

Subsequently (in the following months)

  • An improvement of the children's quality of life was also demonstrated with improved sleep, less scratching, better acceptance of skin care and more participation in everyday activities appropriate to their age.
