Skin plumping effects with the ability to boost your body's collagen.
By Azra Shuib | December 8, 2020
If you are aiming for a face that looks years younger, then you shouldn’t shy away from fillers. It’s quick, has minimal downtime and significant results are achievable. Famous ones are hyaluronic acid fillers. Also known as dermal fillers, they fill up wrinkles so your skin will look plumper, lips sexier and under eye area fresher. Bonus point – since it’s natural, it is safe. And hyaluronic acid has the ability to store moisture which helps to maintain skin hydration.
However, with hyaluronic acid injections, the volume will gradually decrease over 6 months to 2 years, and you have to go for another injection to restore the effects. But with innovation driving facial treatments to get more effective, you can say goodbye to this particular problem. Introducing Ellanse injection - a collagen stimulating filler that can plump up wrinkles and improve facial contour, while stimulating your body’s own collagen production. The best part? It can last up to 4 years.
Sounds great! What is it?
Ellanse injection is made up of aqueous carboxymethylcellulose – or CMC and a bio-resorbable soft medical polymer called polycaprolactone (PCL). A bit of a mouthful, but how it works is pretty simple. When injected into your face, the CMC gives you an immediate volume up - smoothing out wrinkles and improving your facial contour. Then PCL will help to gradually help to stimulate your body to produce collagen, which gives you a more youthful look from the inside out.
Generally, the process of stimulating collagen will peak after 12 weeks to give the final result.
How should I imagine the treatment would be?
Ellanse injection normally takes about an hour from facial cleansing to numbing cream application and finally to the Ellanse injection administrations. Ellanse can be safely injected in any of the following areas that you wish:
· Temples / Brows
· Nasolabial Folds
· Lower Face / Marionette Lines
· Chin / Jawline
How can it last longer than other fillers?
Ellanse is made up of microspheres that will go a resorption process when introduced into the body. In other words, they will be absorbed and progressively dissolve. The microspheres will retain their original volume until all molecules are dissolved. Therefore, the longevity of the effects depend on the number of molecules composing the spheres. With more molecules, results will stay longer.
For instance, at one of our affiliated clinics, there are ‘M’ and ‘L’ Ellanse injections. With M Ellanse injection, results can last up to 2 years, while the L version can give you a youthful look for up to 3 years.
Any Side Effects?
Ellanse is also safe and most side effects are injection related – mild swelling, bruising and soreness. But they are temporary and will quickly fade. It is officially approved by MHRA in the UK and the FDA in the USA. After injection, you’re free to go about your activities and enjoy a younger facial appearance over time.
As with any anti aging treatments, aftercare is important in making sure that you are getting enough benefits. If you want to look younger in years to come, then you should start now. Wear a proper amount of sunscreen even when it's cloudy outside. Secondly, quit smoking as it can quicken aging process. Thirdly, practice a healthy and active lifestyle - the steps include taking all your nutritional needs, exercise regularly and take your own time to release stress.
