Ellansé works differently to traditional hyaluronic acid fillers, which only address lines, wrinkles and folds by filling up lost volume. Thanks to Ellansé’s unique properties, it not only removes lines and wrinkles, it also stimulates your own collagen to reverse the underlying causes of facial aging.
Like traditional fillers, Ellanse fills up the volume-deficient areas on our faces immediately.
At the same time, the PCL microspheres present in Ellanse stimulates neocollagenesis, resulting in long lasting volumization as your body produces collagen to replace the fillers which are reabsorbed naturally by your body over time. This fights against, and slows down further effects of aging.
There are 4 types of Ellanse fillers; Ellanse S, M, L, and E. The differences between the 4 would be longevity / reabsorption rate by the body.
Ellansé is safe as it is fully reabsorbed by the body after the stated longevity period, and most side effects one can get are injection-related, like mild swelling, bruising and soreness. These are temporary, and will resolve with no issues.
A word of caution – as Ellansé is non-dissolvable, it is better to play on the safe side and start with a conservative amount of Ellansé and minimise the risk of over-doing. It is important to find an experienced doctor you trust to perform the procedure on you.
