Self love is never wrong. And almost every year, I will indulge in a pampering treat for myself in the month of my birthday and this year was no exception as I booked a consultation session and Ellansé treatment with Dr Gerard Ee of Clifford Aesthetics.
As we age, our skin will naturally lose volume and sag, which leads to the formation of wrinkles and folds. This is due to the lost of collagen, which is found naturally in our skin, as one of the most important support structures, which maintains elasticity, tightness and suppleness.
I noticed that my cheeks have been losing much volume as I age and the sunken look makes me appear tired and old. When i spoke to Dr Ee regarding this and asked him which treatment is better for me to address this issue, he recommended Ellansé. I was very curious as to what treatment this is and how different it is from other fillers and below was what Dr Ee told me. I like the portion when it can last for 1-4 years as my metabolism rate is very high and I tend to burn fats very fast. Hence I have been losing volume on my face and I need to do fillers often.
What is Ellansé?
It is a dermal filler known for its long-lasting and effective results through collagen stimulation.
How Ellansé works
Unlike other fillers which work by directly filling up the hollowness or wrinkles, Ellansé works by stimulating the collagen of your own skin so that the skin can restore to a more youthful state. It treats the problems directly so the effects are extremely natural-looking.
Benefits of Ellansé
Dr Ee explained the benefits of Ellansé and I immediately said yes to this treatment. The best part is that no follow-ups or multiple sessions are required and the effects can last for 1-4 years.
- Effects can be seen immediately
- Reshapes, contours and increases firmness of skin through natural collagen stimulation
- Results are natural-looking and long-lasting (1-4 years)
- Follow-ups or multiple sessions not required
Although most patients will request for numbing cream on their face before the injection, I normally skip this step. Not sure why but to me, most of the pain from injections are bearable. Anyways, no pain no gain. Also the injection won’t take very long as well. Dr Ee will also inject some anesthesia around the area where he will inject Ellansé so I was not scared of any pain.
Dr Ee used a white pencil to draw out the areas where he was going to inject Ellansé fillers. Next he proceeded to inject it into the sunken areas of my cheeks. Actually, the procedure was very fast and in terms of pain level wise, I would say it 2/10. But for those who are scared of pain, do ask for numbing cream.
The great thing is that there is no downtime for Ellansé treatment at all. I could walk out of The Clifford Aesthetics and no one would know I have done anything to my face. This treatment is great as a lunchtime treat and you can go back to the office, looking youthful immediately!
I would strongly recommend Ellansé treatment to those who have lost volume in the face, to treat cheek hollowness, temple, nasolabial folds or laughter lines and make your face more V-shape. I love the results of Ellansé treatment cos it restored back the fullness of my cheeks, giving me a more youthful look. Just take a look at the before and after photo below(without makeup). Before the Ellansé treatment, my cheek areas were flat, like two dimensional, cos I had lost so much volume on my face over the years due to aging, stress and late nights.
Immediately after the treatment, I can see results…yeah! I see fullness in my cheek areas and somehow it kinda lifts up my face as well, giving me a more youthful appearance. Also, my face looks more three dimensional now as well… no longer so flat, especially in photos. It also makes my face more V-shaped as well.
I can see the visible difference in my cheek areas after the Ellansé treatment. I used to have sunken cheeks and when I smiled, the hollowness became very obvious. It made me look very haggard and tired as if I had not slept for days. With Ellansé treatment, my cheeks became fuller, cancelling out the hollowness. Take a look at the before and after photos(with makeup). The result is so amazing that i can’t help but rave about it to all my friends! Those who want to look good in photos, Ellansé treatment is something you can consider cos it makes your face look more three dimensional.
