Ellansé fillers work differently from the more traditional hyaluronic acid fillers. When injected into the skin, Ellansé has anti-skin aging properties. Ellansé has a specific gel carrier that it is suspended within, called carboxymethylcellulose (CMC).
Once Ellansé fillers are injected into your body, your body’s tissue naturally reabsorbs the polycaprolactone PCL microspheres. The PCL microspheres trigger collagen growth in the body, making the skin look healthier and more elastic. The greater the amount of fillers injected, the longer the effects will last as the body will take much longer to reabsorb it.
On average, collagen stimulation peaks at 12 weeks to give the final result.
There are four types of Ellanse fillers: Ellanse S, M, L and E. The differences between the four would be re-absorption rate by the body.
The effects of Ellansé fillers are immediately noticeable. Depending on the type of the Ellansé fillers, the effects can last anywhere from 1 to 4 years. Your doctor will administer local anesthesia before an Ellansé treatment. There is no major downtime and you should be able to resume activities almost immediately.
Ellanse is very safe, and most side effects are limited to injection-related swelling, bruising and soreness. These post-treatment reactions are only temporary and will go away after a few days.
Severe side effects of Ellanse are similar to those of regular injectable fillers — necrosis and blindness. However, these are extremely rare.
As Ellanse is non-dissolvable, any over-filling cannot be removed. It is advisable to start with a conservative amount of Ellanse to find what best works for you. It is also important to engage an experienced doctor in Singapore to inject the Ellanse filler into your body.
As Ellanse fillers differ from normal fillers (such as dermal fillers) in many ways, it is best to discuss with your doctor what works best for you.
The many benefits, including collagen use, would also mean Ellanse is more expensive upfront — but you will enjoy savings in the long run due to its longevity.
