Ellansé is a Dermal Filler and a Collagen Stimulator. It is a Unique and Innovative dermal filler which introduces a new era of safe and innovative solutions for facial aesthetic treatments.
The Ellansé Range combines the benefits of both immediate correction of wrinkles and folds, as well as stimulating the generation of the body’s own natural collagen, for beautiful, fresh and longer-lasting results.
Collagen is one of the important support structures found naturally in our skin. Collagen helps to maintain tightness, elasticity and suppleness. Over the course of time, our skin gradually loses its natural collagen, leading to facial laxity and the formation of wrinkles and folds. Ellansé uses the body’s natural response to stimulate the body’s own collagen (neocollagenesis) – restoring a fresh, youthful look.
The Ellansé range of products addresses your needs for beautiful, fresh, longer-lasting and cost-effective results. Its four distinctive versions allow you to choose how long you would like the results to last, eliminating the need for frequent repeat treatments.
The ELLANSÉ Range is available in three versions:
- ELLANSÉ-S (1 year)
- ELLANSÉ-M (2 years)
- ELLANSÉ-L (3 years).

What aftercare is required after an Ellansé treatment?

In order to see the final result, it is important to wait until any of the injection related symptoms have resolved.
You should contact us if you experience any side effect or have questions after your treatment.
Avoid applying makeup to the treated area for the next 24 hours after treatment.
Avoid vigorous exercise, hot baths, sun and heat exposure for 3 days after treatment.
How long does an Ellansé treatment take?
A typical Ellansé treatment will take approximately 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the treatment areas, the amount of product being used, and the technique used during treatment.
How often will I need an Ellansé treatment?
Each Ellansé product has an estimated duration time, however, this can vary depending on the individual.
When subtle enhancements are required the results may last around 1 year with Ellansé S or 2 years with Ellansé M. For more extensive restorative treatments a course of treatments are recommended.
Dr Johnson recommends an initial treatment with Ellansé S and a review after 3-4 months. At this stage the collagen stimulation is present and can be assessed. Further treatment can then be planned depending on the results you want to achieve at your own preferred schedule. After each treatment it is helpful to schedule a review appointment 3-4 months later to monitor the results over time and to determine when different touch-ups need to be made to maintain the desired look.
