WHAT IS ELLANSÉ?

HOW DOES ELLANSÉ WORK?

Ellansé Dermal Filler contours and regenerates the lost volume through the body’s own natural processes rather than just adding volume directly. Collagen is a very important protein, that keeps the skin elastic, firm and youthful. As the skin matures, the level of collagen starts to reduce. Ellansé can prevent collagen loss and the formation of aging signs like wrinkles and skin laxity.

Ellansé continues to trigger the production of collagen for almost 4 years, which is much longer than other fillers. It consists of 2 important ingredients – Polycaprolactone (PCL) which restores the volume or better contours immediately and then dissolves after 3 months, while the other ingredient, Carboxymethyl Cellulose (CMC) carrier gel, triggers the production of collagen and maintains this newly restored volume or contours. Basically, when the first ingredient breaks down and disappears, the body is left with a natural product in the skin.

    Ellansé Dermal Fillers, preserve already existing collagen and stimulate the production of the new one. The patients keep the volume in their facial areas and reduce the early aging signs. When starting with Ellansé at this age, only small amounts are necessary to improve the start of volume loss.

    When people are in their 30s and 40s, they start to experience a greater loss of collagen. They might notice the loss of facial fat, increased skin laxity, flatter cheeks, under-eye hollows, hollow temples and wrinkles. The facial shape slightly changes which results in a tired-looking and unhealthy appearance.

  • HOW IS ELLANSÉ DIFFERENT FROM HYALURONIC ACID?

    Both Dermal Fillers are brilliant for targeting wrinkles and lines like nasolabial folds.

    However, Ellansé Dermal Fillers provide longer-lasting results, correct deep wrinkles and restore cheek volume. They have a thicker, gel-like structure which allows them to last longer. They also trigger the collagen production and improve facial contours. Hyaluronic Acid fillers have a shorter duration because they are more liquid. HA fillers are ideal for lips enhancement and augmentation as Ellansé Dermal Fillers are not suitable for lip treatments.
