How do Ellansé dermal fillers work?

Ellansé is different to other dermal fillers because of its unique properties, it not only corrects wrinkles and folds but also stimulates your own collagen production to really treat the underlying causes of facial ageing. The effects are gradual and longer-lasting giving you a natural youthful appearance

How long does a treatment take?

A treatment takes approximately 30-40 minutes depending on the treatment areas.

When will i see the effects of the treatment?

Volumising effects and correction of wrinkles and folds can be seen immediately after treatment. Ellansé will then gradually stimulate production of your body’s own collagen to treat the underlying causes of facial ageing for long-lasting and natural-looking results.

How long will the results last?

you will get natural-looking, smooth and immediate results that last from between 1 to 4 years* depending on which Ellansé option your physician recommends for you. the results are maintained for the total duration of time according to the Ellansé option chosen, enabling you to avoid multiple sessions.

Is the procedure painful?

Ellansé is injected into the skin in tiny amounts using an ultrafine needle, resulting in minimal discomfort. the procedure is simple and convenient, and volumising results are immediate.

What is Ellansé made up of?

Composed of unique polycaprolactone (pcl) microspheres and carboxymethyl cellulose (cmc) carrier gel which are naturally broken down by the body into carbon dioxide and water and then eliminated without leaving any substances in your body.

How many sessions are generally needed?

With Ellansé, only one session is needed to obtain immediate results and long-lasting correction, making Ellansé a cost effective treatment that offers excellent value for money.

Is it ok to combine Ellansé with other aesthetic treatments?

Ellansé should not be used in or close to sites where previous skin augmentation procedures have been applied.

What should I do following treatment?

It is recommended to avoid hot bathing and vigorous exercise for 24 hours after treatment. over-exposure to the sun and UV  light should also be avoided for 1 week after treatment.
