How Does Ellanse Work?
The fillers are made of polycaprolactone microspheres suspended in a carboxymethylcellulose gel carrier. The polycaprolactone microspheres are synthetic, but also bioresorbable. Once injected into the skin, the solution works to give immediate results and also to stimulate the body’s collagen production for long-lasting effects. By encouraging the body to increase its collagen production, these fillers give the skin the ability to heal itself.
Ellanse dermal fillers are only intended to be administered by a licensed medical practitioner. Cleanse and disinfect the treatment area. You can use a local anesthetic, if needed. Prepare the syringe by attaching the needle with the Luer lock fitting. Slowly push on the syringe plunger until a drop of filler comes out. Inject subdermally at a 30° angle using the tunneling technique and a 1:1 correction factor. After injection, massage the area to distribute the filler evenly.
How Long Does Ellanse Last?
Each of the Ellanse fillers are formulated to last between 1 to 4 years: Ellanse S lasts up to a year; Ellanse M can last up to 2 years; Ellanse L lasts up to 3 years; and Ellanse E can last up to 4 years. The effects can vary depending on the patient’s age, skin condition, and lifestyle, as well as whether the filler has been injected correctly.
Ellanse is a clinically proven, safe treatment for those wanting to reduce signs of aging. As polycaprolactone microspheres have been used for several decades in the medical field, they have a high safety profile. As well, several regulatory agencies worldwide have approved cosmetic treatments using polycaprolactone and carboxymethylcellulose. Since it is a completely bioresorbable synthetic filler, Ellanse does not need a skin test prior to treatment. Ellanse is not intended for use in patients who have an allergy to any of the fillers’ components, patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or patients with infected or inflamed skin. As well, some injection-related side effects may occur, but they generally resolve within a few days of treatment. It is best to advise your patients to avoid extreme temperatures for up to a week after treatment, and rigorous exercise for 24 hours.
Other Side Effects:
Your patient will not need any downtime from their regular routine. It is important that they avoid overexposure to the sun and other extreme temperatures for up to a week. As well, any injection-related side effects should resolve within a few days of treatment.
