Ellanse Collagen Stimulator: Everything You Need To Know

Maintaining healthy skin can become trickier as we get older, and wrinkles and crow’s feet are more likely to set in. The reason behind this is a loss of collagen and elasticity, meaning that it’s harder for the skin to bounce back from all the mini muscle contractions that happen day to day.

Luckily, there’s a way to combat the impact of ageing and it’s called Ellanse treatment. Versatile and long-lasting, there’s a number of benefits to using Ellanse and we’ve put together a guide on everything you need to know about this phenomenal skincare procedure.

What is Ellanse?

Ellanse filler is a unique type of dermal filler that is injected into the skin. Not only does it help to uplift wrinkles, but it also actively promotes the growth of new collagen so the skin will be rejuvenated over time.

Collagen is an important natural compound that keeps skin healthy and with the treatment stimulating its production, you’ll benefit from a vibrant appearance and long-lasting results.


How does Ellanse filler work?

A fast-acting biostimulator, Ellanse is made of biomedical polycaprolactone microspheres housed in the gel. When injected into the skin, Ellanse filler becomes immediately bioresorbable.


This means the compound will be replaced by the body’s own tissues and then reabsorbed into the body. With the gel being reabsorbed, neocollagensis takes place i.e., the production of new collagen.


This process leads to greater elasticity in the skin, a reduction in wrinkles, an uplifted appearance and more.


What is Ellanse used for?


Ellanse is a versatile treatment that can be used in multiple areas of the body, including:


  • Cheeks
  • Forehead
  • Jawline
  • Chin
  • Nose
  • Hands
  • Temple and brow
  • Lower face


It’s an effective treatment against many types of conditions, such as nasolabial folds, wrinkles, sunken cheeks, a distorted jawline and much more.


Who is Ellanse collagen stimulator suitable for?


Ellanse dermal fillers are suitable for men and women who want to provide more volume to their skin, reduce the effects of ageing and look younger.


How many Ellanse treatments will I need?


Ellanse treatment is a quick, non-invasive procedure and you’ll only need one session.


How long does Ellanse filler last?


Once the procedure is finished, you’ll benefit from long-lasting results of between 2 – 5 years.


Is Ellanse filler safe?


Ellanse is a safe procedure because it’s non-invasive. This means that you won’t need to have any physical surgery and the recovery time is minimal.

What are Ellanse side effects?


Ellanse filler may come with several side effects, such as:

  • Swelling and redness

  • Pain and stinging sensations around the injection area

  • Bleeding at the injection spot

  • Numbness or itching


These side effects will usually go away within a matter of hours or days. But if they last for longer, then we advise you seek medical help.


It’s also important to note that you shouldn’t have the treatment if you have a history of allergic reactions, auto-immune conditions, skin inflammation, are receiving steroid treatment or if you’re pregnant.


Ellanse vs dermal fillers: What’s the difference?


Ellanse is different than other dermal fillers because it’s made from microspheres which dissolve in a unique way. When it’s injected into the body, it goes through a reabsorption process where the compounds break down gradually.


Throughout this process, the microspheres maintain their original volume until every molecule has been dissolved. This also applies to the longevity of the treatment, as results are dependent on the number of molecules within the spheres.


So, the more molecules there are, the longer the results will last.
