How does Ellansé work?
Ageing skin can lose its structural proteins (collagen and elastin), which causes it to begin to sag and become lax, therefore contributing to a tired and aged look.
Ellansé works differently and naturally. Thanks to its unique properites, it not only corrects wrinkles and folds but also stimulates your own collagen production to really treat the underlying causes of facial ageing. The effects are gradual and longer-lasting giving you a natural youthful appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions
Ellanse is a unique dermal filler that works by not only immediately correcting the wrinkles and folds in the skin, but also by stimulating the body’s own natural collagen to have a long lasting, natural result.
WHAT IS ELLANSE MADE OF?
Ellansé® was introduced to the UK in 2010 and consists of synthetic microspheres made from a medical grade polymer called Polycaprolactone or PCL which are suspended in a carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) gel. Polycaprolactone has a long history of being used in dissolvable sutures and other surgical equipment, such as orthopaedic implants.
PCL and CMC are completely eliminated from the body after the desired performance duration.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Ellansé can be used to treat most areas which hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers can treat, including the:
- Temples and Brow area
- Nasolabial Folds
- Lower Face, Marionette lines
Ellanse is suitable for both woman and men of different ages. It can help with deep folds around the mouth and nose, sunken cheeks, facial scars, deep acne scars and loose skin. It has optimal bio-compatibility, due to the very smooth spherical micro-spheres. It is predictable, controlled and has tunable bioresorption, with an excellent safety profile. Unique tunable longevity options for personalized and tailored treatment.
Ellanse is ideal for long lasting lines and wrinkle correction and enhances cheek volume and stimulates collagen in a natural way.
Ellanse is ideal for restoring facial contours and volume and correcting facial laxity, improving the jaw line and other areas.
Patients can achieve full face lifting without the need of aggressive surgery, with the result lasting one to two years depending on which Ellansé option is recommended to you.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
Only one treatment is required which takes approximately 45 – 60 minutes.
The area to be treated is cleaned using antiseptic and a topical anaesthetic may be applied to minimise possible discomfort. Small quantities of Ellansé® are injected under the skin in the treatment area using a very fine needle or blunt canula.
WHAT DOES TREATMENT FEEL LIKE?
ELLANSÉ® is a very smooth and soft formulation which is injected through a very fine needle or blunt canula. Many patients experience no pain at all or minimum discomfort. There is no recovery time needed, patients can resume their normal activities right after the treatment. Any discomfort can be managed through use of ice, local anaesthetic or painkillers.
WHEN CAN I SEE RESULTS?
Results are immediately visible.
HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?
The desired correction may last from one to two years depending on which Ellansé option is recommended to you. Ellansé gives a natural and longer lasting, but non-permanent result.
ELLANSE Vs DERMAL FILLERS
Over the course of time, our skin gradually loses its natural collagen, leading to facial laxity and the formation of wrinkles and folds. Ellansé uses the body’s natural response to stimulate the generation of the body’s own collagen (neo-collagenesis) – restoring a fresh, youthful look.
Ellansé is different from other fillers, as it gives the desired beautiful aesthetic result that lasts longer than conventional dermal fillers. The unique advantages of Ellansé are sustained performance, tunable longevity and total bioresorbability.
Ellansé also offers the advantage over other fillers, as it allows immediate correction and sustained performance from one to two years depending on which Ellansé option is recommended to you.
WHAT AFTERCARE ADVICE SHOULD I FOLLOW?
Avoid hot baths/showers and vigorous exercise for 24 hours. Avoid over-exposure to the sun and sunbeds for a week after treatment.
