Unlike other fillers, Ellansé does not use hyaluronic acid as its main component. The main component of Ellansé fillers is Poly-Caprolactone (PCL), a type of polymer that your body can absorb naturally over time. Ellansé fillers restore volume to the skin as well as lifting it and making it look healthier.
The inevitable effects of aging is a loss of collagen and elastin within the dermis.
As we age, our skin, fat and muscles in our face slowly degenerate.
These are all signs of aging that can make us look weary and haggard..
HOW DO ELLANSE FILLERS WORK?
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 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.
