Ellanse, unlike other fillers, does not use hyaluronic acid as its main component. The main component of Ellanse fillers is Poly-Caprolactone (PCL). This is a type of polymer that is bio-resorbable – meaning that the body can naturally absorb it over time. Ellanse fillers serve to lift the skin, make it healthier, and restore volume that is lost as the skin ages.
Ellanse fillers work differently from the more traditional hyaluronic acid fillers. When injected into the skin, Ellanse has anti-ageing properties.
Ellanse fillers are made out of PCL microspheres, which degrade differently from other fillers. From the moment Ellanse fillers are injected into your body, your body’s tissue naturally reabsorbs the PCL microspheres. The greater the amount of fillers injected, the longer the effects will last as the body will take much longer to reabsorb it.
Of course, hyaluronic fillers have some advantages over Ellanse as well. Always check with a certified doctor what fillers are best for you and your aesthetic goals.
Compared to other fillers, Ellanse fillers are incredibly versatile. In general, Ellanse fillers can be used for multiple purposes such as restoring volume to the forehead, as well as sculpting harder areas like the nose or chin. Some doctors even use Ellanse fillers to restore volume to a patient’s hands.
The effects of Ellanse fillers on the skin is almost immediate. Depending on the type of the Ellanse fillers, the effects can last anywhere from 1 to 4 years. There are 4 types of Ellanse fillers. S, M, L and E. All these fillers have varying reabsorption rates as outlined below.
Ellanse – S: 1 year
Ellanse – M: 2 years
Ellanse – L: 3 years
Ellanse – E: 4 years
