Main aesthetic medicine techniques :

Aesthetic medicine

Aesthetic medicine is a quick and non-invasive preventative cosmetic procedure that helps manage the normal effects of aging.It does not require an operating table and general anesthesia.

It can intervene in the treatment of the wrinkles and the scars, ageing of the face and body, disgracious skin.

Minimal side effects, swelling, painless, bruises, local anesthesia.

Dr Philippe Legaillard has been practicing wrinkle filling in Bordeaux since 1996.

Injectable wrinkle fillers are used to give the face a more youthful and smoother appearance, and like botox,
can be associated with a surgical procedure to maximise the results.

Wrinkle fillers can also be used as "volumizers," plumping and lifting cheeks, filling out thin lips.

Dr Legaillard only uses resorbable products approved for medical use by the strict Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

3 pharmaceutical companies fulfil these criterias : Allergan, Galderma-QMed et Merz.

The treatment is fast and easy, done at the practice, with a return to work and normal activities immediately after the injections.

Resorbable products

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is currently the most effective and safe wrinkle filling product on the market.

The substance is naturally present in the human body, and therefore presents no risk of allergy.

Hyaluronic acid filler acts like an inflated cushion to support facial structures and tissues that may have lost volume or elasticity due to normal aging.

It also brings water to the surface of skin to keep it looking fresh and supple for several months.

The treatment is fast and easy, done at the practice with a return to work and normal activities immediately after the injections. It does not involve anesthesia, sometimes alocal anaesthetics cream (Emla) for the lip area which is slightly more sensitive).

The main filling products used by the practice are Restylane Lip, Restylane Vital, Juverderm, Juverderm Ultra, Voluma, Emervel, Radiesse.


Injectable dermal fillers can soften facial creases and plump thin lips, enhance cheeks and cheekboness, eyelid, eyebrow, chin, in order to pospone a facelift.

2 main techniques are currently available at our practice:

Hyaluronic acid injections : very hydrophilic, like "Voluma" from Allergan

Autologous fat transfer injections (lipostructure)

Very satisfying and long-lasting results thanks to refinements in technique.
It has become the procedure of choice for an array of problems in plastic and reconstructive surgery, including facial scarring,lip augmentation, and facial atrophy or deficits.
Minimised risks, short hospitalization and fast recovery, local anesthesia.
