Wrinkle treatment – Hayluronic acid or Ellansé?

Is it possible to stimulate the skin to rejuvenate itself? What is the difference between hyaluronic acid and ellansé in wrinkle injections and what does the word biostimulation mean in this context? Questions about questions… answered by Dr. Anne Falge in the PODCAST interview!

As we age, the so-called triangle of beauty reverses: Where once there were high cheekbones, full cheeks and smooth skin, eventually flatter cheeks, a downward sagging mouth and wrinkles are visible. Deep fat loses volume, making the face look sunken.

Skin aging, however, is even more complex. In the course of life, cells renew and regenerate more and more slowly. At first, this happens only in small steps, but later, unfortunately, it happens faster and faster. The supporting fibers collagen and elastin are formed in the “cell factories” of the skin, the so-called fibroblasts. This process slows down and for our outer shell, the skin, this means that less and less collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid are formed.

Treatment with fillers is the most natural and effective way to combat this and make someone look younger. Treatments with dermal fillers are first and foremost convincing because of the natural result. It can be used to architecturally restore the face, fill in sunken areas, tighten the chin contour, smooth out wrinkles and give new harmony to the facial features.

Wrinkle treatment and regeneration

Filler treatments with hyaluronic acid provide more volume and replenish hyaluronic acid deposits. However, wrinkle treatment with “Ellansé” goes one step further. In addition to an immediate filling effect, “Ellansé” stimulates collagen formation. Firbroblasts are stimulated to produce new skin building blocks, which can lead to long-lasting and natural results of up to two years. The skin is stimulated to rejuvenate itself again! “Especially for older people, the natural and long-lasting results convince me,” explains Dr. Anne Falge.

“Ellansé” is thus more than a filler, “Ellansé” is a clinically proven biostimulant made of smooth polycaprolactone (PLC) microparticles in an aqueous gel carrier of carboxy-methylcellulose (CMC). PCL is also used in numerous medical applications, such as degradable sutures in oral and maxillofacial surgery. “Ellansé” is bioresorbable, naturally degraded by the body to carbon dioxide and water, and then excreted without leaving any trace.

Wrinkle injection with Ellansé has double effect

In aesthetic medicine, it can be used to build up nasolabial and marionette wrinkles, the chin line, cheeks and cheekbone, and also to treat the hands. “Ellansé” is available as a duo with a precisely defined shelf life: “Ellansé S” lasts up to 18 months, “Ellansé M” up to two years.

As with other filler treatments, “Ellansé” is injected into the skin with a fine needle. Only one session is needed to achieve immediate results and lasting corrections. After treatment, patients should avoid strenuous physical activity, excessive sun exposure and sauna sessions. Immediately after treatment, patients may experience swelling, local redness and tenderness.
