ELLANSE FILLERS (少女针)
ELLANSE is a non-hyaluronic acid (HA) filler. It contains Poly-Caprolactone (PCL) microspheres suspended in a gel-carrier made up of Carboxymethycellulose (CMC). When injected into the skin, ELLANSE like most fillers results in immediate lifting and sculpting effects. At the same time, the PCL microspheres stimulates the formation of new collagen. Its effects peak at approximately 12 weeks post injection.
WHY DOES ELLANSE LAST LONGER THAN MOST DERMAL FILLERS?
ELLANSE is a bio-stimulating dermal filler which stimulates the formation of new collagen. Thus, its effects typically last between 2-4 years (compared to approximately 4-6 months for most HA fillers).
WHICH AREAS OF THE FACE CAN ELLANSE BE USED TO TREAT?
ELLANSE can be safely injected in the following areas:
– Temples, brows
– Nasolabial folds
– Lower face, marrionette lines
– Chin, jawline
AM I SUITABLE FOR TREATMENT WITH ELLANSE?
Most patients are suitable for treatment with ELLANSE, however this will have to be ascertained after a consultation with Dr Ngiam, who will advise you further in detail.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING THE TREATMENT AND HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Firstly, your face will be cleansed thoroughly. This will be followed by application of a numbing cream for approximately 15-20 minutes. Depending on which site of the face is being treated, Dr Ngiam may choose to use either a blunt canula or needle to administer the ELLANSE injections.
HOW SOON CAN I RETURN TO NORMAL ACTIVITIES?
There is minimal downtime – you can actually resume your usual lifestyle as soon as your treatment is over.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Fillers used nowadays are generally safe and seldom produce severe side effects. The most common side effects are injection-related, such as redness, pain, itching, swelling or bruising. These post-treatment reactions are usually mild and disappear after a few days.
WHEN CAN I START TO SEE RESULTS AND HOW LONG DO THEY LAST?
The aesthetic results are almost immediate, and you will notice the difference right away.
