Generic name

Ellansé™ is a safe and clinically proven synthetic dermal filler, composed of totally smooth Polycaprolactone (PCL) microspheres, homogenously suspended in an aqueous Carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) gel–carrier.

What does it contain?

PCL is a well-known totally bioresorbable soft medical material, used in numerous European (CE-marked) and US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved commercial bioresorbable medical device applications like e.g. biodegradable sutures and orthopedic implants for several decades world-wide and has demonstrated an excellent safety profile.

CMC has been used in numerous European (CE-marked) and US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved commercial product applications in medical, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries e.g. dermal fillers, oral and maxillo-facial surgery for several decades worldwide and has demonstrated an excellent safety profile.

How is it made?

The unique advantages of Ellansé™ are Sustained Performance, Tunable Longevity and Total Bioresorbability. Unlike other dermal fillers, Ellansé™ offers a complete customized solution for patients seeking longer-lasting results.

The optimum combination of high viscosity and unique elasticity distinguishes Ellansé™ from the more fluid and short-lasting HA-fillers, and provides a better filling and lifting effect, and targeted placement. In addition, Ellansé™ stimulates the generation of new collagen giving a high quality sustained performance, in comparison to HA-fillers. Moreover, Ellansé™ is more cost-effective as less volume is required for the desired aesthetic results.

Is a skin test required before treatment?

Ellansé™ is, contrary to other dermal fillers a non-animal, non-bacterial and non-human derived product which eliminates the need of an allergy test. Ellansé™ is totally synthetic, which means that your doctor can treat you immediately without any allergy test prior to the treatment.

Is it temporary or permanent?

Ellansé™ is a temporary but long-lasting dermal filler. The Total Bioresorbability of Ellansé™ is extensively tested and proven. The uniquely combined soft biomedical components of Ellansé™ guarantee that the product will completely disappear after the desired duration of performance. Using Ellansé™ offers a treatment result which is totally reversible and safe.
