FOR NATURAL-LOOKING, REGENERATIVE BEAUTY
Loss of volume, sagging of tissue and ageing of the skin are all concerns that can be treated effectively with Ellanse. In the most simplistic terms, Ellansé is a collagen-stimulating filler. It is injected in a similar way (perhaps with a little more expertise) to a dermal filler to provide volume, combat signs of ageing and rejuvenate the skin.
However, Ellansé is so much more than just a filler. The easiest way to understand the product is to view it from a step by step approach.
· Ellanse is a unique product with the ability to provide immediate volume as well as long-lasting, rejuvenating results
· Ellanse can not only treat volume loss but can also significantly improve skin quality and texture
· The product can be used for liquid facelift cases as well as a wide variety of other areas
· Results vary for each individual, therefore, expectations and outcome will be discussed during the consultation
Ellanse is a product that is similar to a dermal filler. However, it falls into the category of being a collagen stimulator due to its unique properties. Ellanse is made up of two main components; PolyCaproLactone (PCL) microspheres and Carboxymethyl Cellulose (CMC) carrier gel. The PCL microspheres are responsible for triggering your body’s natural collagen production and the CMC gel provides immediate volume.
Ellanse is naturally broken down over time within the body into carbon dioxide and water leaving no substances in your body.
Ellansé is injected like a dermal filler into the areas of concern. Generally, a full-face approach is taken when using Ellansé and the product will be distributed into the whole face – treating areas like cheeks, jawline, temples and in lines and wrinkles. You will see immediate volume and improvement.
Over 6 – 12 months, the gel that was initially injected to provide immediate volume will completely break down and disappear. During this time frame, the PCL microspheres within the product will trigger your body’s natural collagen production. This means that the volume that was initially there from the gel that was injected will in time be replaced by your own body’s collagen.
Ellanse can be used pretty much anywhere in the face except the tear trough, the glabella (the area between the eyebrows) and the body of the lips.
Here are the most commonly treated areas with Ellanse:
– Non-surgical Facelift
– Chin Filler
– Nose to Mouth Lines
– Marionette Lines
– Hand Fillers
– Neck Wrinkles
– Jawline Enhancement
Dermal fillers can also be used in combination with anti-wrinkle treatment for Non-Surgical Facelift
A local anaesthetic cream can be applied prior to treatment which can reduce discomfort during treatment. Ellanse is mixed with a local anaesthetic which can make the whole process more comfortable.
Treatment times will vary but is generally between 30 – 90 minutes depending on the areas that are treated.
Ellanse is injected into the skin in tiny amounts using an ultrafine needle or canula, resulting in minimal discomfort. The procedure is simple and convenient, and volumising results are immediate.
You will get natural-looking, smooth and immediate results that last from between 1 to 2 years* depending on which Ellanse product is used. The results are maintained for the total duration of time, enabling you to avoid multiple sessions.
* Expected longevity in-vivo based on extrapolation of clinical data from –S (1 year) and –M (2 years) and accepted PCL degradation behaviour.
Personally, I wouldn’t treat you while you are pregnant or breastfeeding. This may seem a little harsh, but I would wait if it were myself. To the best of my knowledge, Ellanse is not tested on pregnant or breastfeeding women, so there really is no safety data available. Since local anaesthetic is used for most filler injections, there is a risk it can get to your bloodstream and to your baby.
You will be able to carry on with your normal activities following treatment. It is not advised to do any heavy exercise and avoid UV exposure for 24 hours. We also advise trying to refrain from applying make-up following the procedure on the day of treatment.
A full list of aftercare will be discussed on the day of treatment.
SAFETY & SIDE-EFFECTS
It is completely normal to have redness and swelling post procedure (swelling is very common after lip enhancement procedures). Swelling will generally subside after about 48 hours but can often take longer in many cases.
Despite efforts being made to avoid bruising, it can occur. If it does, it can take a week or two to disappear. Make-up can be applied to conceal it if needed, but ideally not on the day of treatment to avoid the risk of infection. Arnica gel/cream can also be worth applying to the area to help reduce the appearance of bruising.
A full list of possible side effects will be discussed with you during your consultation.
It is best to discuss your needs, expectations and suitability for treatment during a face-to-face complementary consultation. Anna can assess your facial anatomy and make tailored recommendations to achieve the best possible outcome.
