What is Ellansé?
Ellansé is a collagen-stimulating filler that naturally regenerates volume lost due to the ageing process, helping restore shape to the face. The effects are long-lasting, as once Ellansé fillers have been reabsorbed by the body, you may continue to see the benefits of the treatment due to production of collagen. Note this filler should not be injected in the lips or peri-orbital area.
How does Ellansé work?
After applying a topical anaesthetic, Dr Sabrina or her team gently and naturally supports localised volume loss in the tissue by strategically injecting Ellansé into the area of concern. This plumps and lifts the tissue, resulting in an immediate more refreshed appearance. Filler also stimulates collagen production and hydrates the skin, so patients will notice the added benefit of improved overall skin quality after 3 months. The whole procedure takes around 30 minutes.
- Instant result – improvement can be seen immediately and final results take 3 months
- No downtime – can return to work right away
- Unrivalled expertise – performed by leading oculoplastic surgeon and her trained team
Frequently Asked Questions
When will I see results?
Results are completely natural-looking and can be seen immediately after the treatment, but take 3 months to see the final result.
What is the downtime?
Downtime is minimal. As with any aesthetic treatment, you may experience some mild, localized swelling, bruising, itching or tenderness but it usually goes away very quickly. Applying ice to the area can speed up recovery.
How long do the effects last?
The gradual stimulation of your own collagen production means effects can last between 18-24 months.
Is Ellansé safe?
Yes, it’s completely safe. You will not require a skin test, as it is bio-compatible, which means the product will be fully resorbed by your body over time.

“I had under eye filler and Ellanse for mid face. I look like I did a few years ago! Much better rested and my face is more balanced. Extremely happy with the subtle but great effect on my face, and everyone at Perfect Eyes is so helpful.
“Professional, talented, caring and knowledgeable with a very diligent and personalised approach. Extremely natural results. I always feel safe and well looked after in Sabrina’s capable hands. I have been seeing her for a year now and would not go anywhere else. She is particularly skilled in treating the eyes of course. The best!
“I have just had THE MOST AMAZING experience with Dr Sabrina Shah Desai. She has just treated my face with a remarkable collagen stimulating filler called Ellanse which has literally given my a liquid face lift! I have cheekbones again and my jaw line had been redefined. Where there was once sagging jowls there is now a tight chin. Sabrina is caring, careful and I was reassured throughout the procedure. I literally cannot wait to see how the eventual outcome turns out, as the best thing about this treatment is that it gets even better in three months time.
