What is Ellanse?
Ellanse is a scientifically advanced product, composed of 70% carboxymethyl cellulose and 30% polycaprolactone. It is classed as a semi-permanent filler. The microspheres are much smaller compared to Radiesse and stimulate collagen production for a period of time. Ellanse is available in S, M and L. ‘L’ range can last up to 2 years. Ellanse creates initial volume giving an immediate effect. Over time the collagen stimulation allows the volume to be maintained. The new collagen produced allows a longer duration of effect and the change in the skin area is subtle over a period of time.
Which areas are Ellanse good for?
Ellanse is suitable for deeper falls and wrinkles and should be injected deep in the skin or on the bone. In small amounts it can be injected superficially for wrinkles and works by stimulating the collagen.
Are there areas where Ellanse should not be injected?
Ellanse should not be injected in the lips and tear trough. Though some inject it in the tear troughs.
When does Ellanse start working?
Stimulation occurs as early as four weeks and continues for 12 months after injection the feeling effect of the radius filler itself last for 12 to 18 months on an average depending on the tyep of Ellanse used.
Are there any risks?
Redness, bruising and pain are common as with any injections and settles within a few days. Analysis of multiple studies has shown that Radiesse has a slightly increased chance of lump formation and is treated with an injection of steroids and very rarely excision of the nodule.
