Ellanse Filler Guide Singapore

In recent years, aesthetic medicine has made significant strides, providing patients with more options for facial rejuvenation than ever before. One of these options, gaining popularity worldwide, is Ellanse.

What is Ellanse?

Ellanse is a unique and innovative dermal filler used in aesthetic medicine in Singapore. Unlike traditional hyaluronic acid-based fillers, Ellanse is composed of a synthetic material called Polycaprolactone (PCL) microspheres suspended in a gel carrier made of carboxymethylcellulose (CMC).

It offers both immediate “filling” and long-lasting anti-aging results by promoting natural collagen production in the skin to deliver a more youthful appearance.

What are the Benefits of Ellanse Filler in Singapore?

Ellanse offers a variety of benefits to those seeking a non-invasive facial rejuvenation solution:

Immediate and Long-lasting Results

Ellanse provides an immediate lift and volume due to the gel carrier, while the PCL microspheres stimulate your body's natural collagen production for long-lasting results.

Biocompatible and Safe

Being made of Polycaprolactone, a well-known medical substance, Ellanse is biocompatible and bioresorbable. It gets naturally metabolized by the body over time, reducing the risk of allergic reactions.


Ellanse can be used to treat a range of facial concerns, including wrinkles and folds, hollow cheeks, sunken forehead, and a lack of definition in facial features such as the chin and jawline.

How Does Ellanse Work?

Ellanse operates in a two-stage mechanism, which distinguishes it from many other dermal fillers on the market. This dual-action approach gives Ellanse the ability to offer immediate correction while promoting long-term skin health via collagen production.

Stage One: Immediate Correction

The first stage of Ellanse's working mechanism provides instant results. When injected into the skin, the carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) gel carrier in Ellanse acts instantly to fill and lift the treatment area.

This is like how most traditional dermal fillers work; they provide volume and correction as soon as they are administered. The gel immediately smooths out wrinkles, fine lines, and restores volume to sagging or hollow areas, offering patients an instant refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.

Stage Two: Collagen Stimulation

The second stage is where Ellanse truly stands out. The Polycaprolactone (PCL) microspheres in Ellanse act as a bio-stimulator. Once injected, these microspheres begin to stimulate the body's natural response to produce new collagen – a process known as neocollagenesis.
Collagen is a critical protein in our skin that provides structure and elasticity. However, as we age, our body's natural collagen production slows down, leading to signs of aging like wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. By stimulating the production of this vital protein, Ellanse helps to combat these signs of aging from within.
Over the weeks and months following the Ellanse treatment, as the body produces new collagen around the PCL microspheres, patients will notice a progressive improvement in their skin's quality and firmness.
The result is a natural, youthful appearance that lasts much longer than the results from traditional fillers.


An important aspect of Ellanse's working mechanism is its biodegradability. Both the CMC gel carrier and the PCL microspheres are fully resorbable. This means that over time, these substances are naturally broken down and metabolized by the body.
The CMC gel carrier is metabolized and excreted by the body relatively quickly after the treatment. The PCL microspheres, on the other hand, are designed to be broken down more slowly over a period of months or even years, depending on the specific type of Ellanse filler used.
This gradual resorption helps to maintain the volume and lift provided by the treatment while promoting sustained collagen production for long-term skin health.
In summary, the working mechanism of Ellanse is a combination of immediate cosmetic correction and long-term biological stimulation of collagen production. This dual-action approach provides immediate satisfaction and promotes healthier, younger-looking skin over time.

What is the Ellanse Treatment Like?
The Ellanse treatment is a minimally invasive procedure performed in a clinic setting. After a consultation to determine the appropriate treatment plan, the area to be treated is marked out and cleansed.
The Ellanse filler is then carefully injected into the treatment area using a fine needle or cannula. The entire procedure typically takes between 30 minutes to an hour.
Results can be seen immediately after.
Is There Downtime After Ellanse?
There is minimal downtime associated with Ellanse injections. Most patients can return to their daily activities immediately after the treatment. However, it's advisable to avoid strenuous exercise, exposure to extreme temperatures, and excessive pressure or massaging of the treated area for the first 5 to 7 days.
When Can Results be Seen?
Ellanse delivers immediate results due to the initial volumizing effect of the CMC gel. However, the full effect of the treatment, including the collagen-stimulating benefits, will be visible over the next 2 to 4 months as your body gradually produces new collagen.
How Long Do Ellanse Results Last For?
One of the key advantages of Ellanse over other dermal fillers is the duration of its effects. The results of Ellanse are not only immediate but also long-lasting, thanks to the sustained collagen production it stimulates.

The longevity of the results can vary depending on the specific type of Ellanse filler used, the area treated, and individual patient factors like age, skin type, lifestyle, and metabolic rate.

Ellanse’s results typically last between 1.5 to 2 years.

It's important to note that, while Ellanse provides long-lasting results, it's not permanent. As the Polycaprolactone (PCL) microspheres gradually get metabolized by the body, the volumizing effect will slowly diminish.

However, the new collagen that has been produced in response to the treatment will continue to provide a natural, youthful appearance to the skin.

What are the Risks of Ellanse?
Like any aesthetic procedure, Ellanse carries some risks, although they are generally minimal and temporary. Potential side effects include redness, swelling, pain, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site.

In rare cases, patients may experience lumps or nodules. It's crucial to have the treatment performed by a trained professional who can minimize these risks and handle any potential complications.
Can Ellanse Be Dissolved?

Unlike hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers, Ellanse cannot be dissolved immediately after injection. Hyaluronic acid fillers can be reversed or dissolved using an enzyme called hyaluronidase, which breaks down the hyaluronic acid quickly.

However, Ellanse is made from a different substance known as Polycaprolactone (PCL). This material is not instantly dissolvable. 

Once injected, Ellanse begins to stimulate collagen production while the PCL microspheres and the carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) gel carrier are slowly and naturally metabolized and resorbed by the body over time.
