Naturally found in the skin, collagen is one of the most essential support structures which maintains the appropriate elasticity, tightness and suppleness of the skin. The body will produce less of it as we age, and thus this leads to the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, folds, and drooping. The loss of natural collagen and elastin (structural proteins) causes the skin to become more lax and saggy, which contributes to a tired, aged look.
Dermal fillers like Ellansé Fillers are popular choices in tackling signs of ageing and restoring lost collagen. It is an innovative treatment known for producing skin rejuvenation results by stimulating the collagen.
How does Ellansé work?
This non-Hyaluronic Acid filler is injected into the skin to lift and restore lost collagen and volume associated with skin ageing. The active ingredient in the filler is Poly-Caprolactone (PCL) microspheres, which helps the body to make its own collagen. This bio-resorbable soft medical polymer is suspended in a gel carrier made up of carboxymethylcellulose (CMC), a plant-based material.
Instead of directly filling in the wrinkles like other fillers, Ellansé works by stimulating the body’s own natural collagen to restore the skin and fix concerns with wrinkles and fine lines. The problem is treated directly at the root and thus produces very natural-looking results.
The treatment is injected carefully with precision into the skin, where the gel-carrier will be absorbed into the body and replaced by newly-formed collagen to form a structure which retains the PCL microspheres. The stimulated collagen will stay over a few years and produce natural and sustained effects.
