How does Ellansé work?

As we age, our skin cells divide more slowly and the innermost layer begins to thin. Fat cells beneath the dermis weaken and the once strong network of collagen and elastin fibres begin to unravel, resulting in the skin losing elasticity and volume. The result is the appearance of lines and wrinkles and the loss of volume and shape in the face. This narrower shape and wrinkles can result in an ageing appearance.

Administered only by Dr Pradnya Apté at Skin Southwest, Ellansé is injected into areas of volume loss. Ellansé is a biocompatible and biodegradable injectable material known as poly-L-lactic acid that naturally stimulates your cells to produce their own collagen. Collagen is the substance your body produces to give your skin a firm and youthful appearance. An advantage of Ellansé is that a single session is enough to correct and rejuvenate (depending on the lack of tissue and ageing of the skin). This makes it different to traditional dermal fillers as Ellansé treats the underlying cause of facial ageing and can produce a longer result.

Where can Ellansé be used?

Ellansé is effective for treating many areas of the face, including:

  • Forehead and brow area
  • Recessed temples
  • Cheek augmentation / sunken cheeks
  • Nose to mouth lines (nasolabial folds)
  • Corners of the mouth
  • Marionette lines (vertical lines between mouth and chin)
  • Chin definition
  • Jawline


If you are unsure whether traditional dermal fillers or Ellansé would be best for you and the results you are looking for, we can help. Book a consultation with Dr Pradnya, who will examine your skin and put together a bespoke treatment plan.

Results from your treatment will last approximately 9-12 months. Depending on the type of Ellansé used, your results could last over 12 months.

Your results and skin improvements from Ellansé treatment are visible immediately after the procedure. The results are long-lasting due to Ellansé treating the underlying causes of facial ageing and continuing to stimulate the production of collagen.

Ellansé can be combined with other treatments including Botox® and Profhilo to achieve an overall more youthful appearance.
