RESTORING VOLUMES AND CONTOURS THROUGH COLLAGEN STIMULATION by Dr Luca Piovano Over the past few years, the fields of medicine and cosmetic surgery have continued to move towards each other. So much, that this is impacting on our clinical treatments: as surgeons, whenever possible, we are now able to offer less invasive procedures with equally successful results. This is possible because we are able to use the latest dermal fillers with amazing results. These days, we are increasingly using fillers based on PolyCaproLactone (PCL) which have outstanding safety records, provide a high viscosity and elasticity and, furthermore, boast an impressive longevity due to their ability to enable the production of fresh collagen. These bio-stimulating dermal fillers use the body’s natural response to foreign bodies and stimulate the formation of collagen around the microspheres, making a longerlasting implant. Ultimately, this treatment offers a versatile, non-surgical approach to increase soft tissue and contouring, and presents a variety of potential cosmetic uses. The aim is not only to provide a smoother skin surface but also to restore the face’s individual features, providing a balance of the filler’s lifting effect on the face’s curved and hollowed areas.

The use of PCL dermal filler is also far more widespread in treatments designed to restore and rejuvenate the face. Most commonly, it is used by plastic surgeons to complement an existing surgical procedure. ELLANSÉ is made up of an aqueous carboxymethylcellulose, with synthetic PolyCaproLactone microspheres. It is used at a fixed concentration – with different polymer chain lengths providing variable levels of longevity and durability. ®

The PCL microspheres are completely smooth and round, and are therefore the perfect shape for use in dermal fillers. The treatment is carried out in an outpatient environment, using ELLANSÉ in a variety of ways depending on the specific imperfection we are looking to restore, and included different injection techniques e.g. linear tread, fanning technique, cross-hatching with local anaesthetic and ELLANSÉ dermal filler. ®

®

This procedure is simple and safe. It does not have a disruptive effect on the patient’s everyday life including their social or professional activities, and the results are highly satisfying, even with a single application. Furthermore, the treatment can be repeated if required.


MY LONG-TERM EXPERIENCE OF VOLUME RESTORATION WITH ELLANSÉ : BENEFITS OF COLLAGEN STIMULATION ®

Dr Maria Angelo Khattar Facial ageing occurs due to a number of cellular and anatomical changes resulting in the loss of soft tissue volume. Hence the importance of volume replacement to restore facial contours is now recognised as an integral part of any facial rejuvenation program. Either autologous fat transfer or soft tissue filler injections may be used to achieve soft tissue augmentation. Currently filler substances fall into two broad categories, the replacement and bio-stimulatory implants. Replacement fillers, namely, biodegradable, cross-linked hyaluronic acid products, dominate the filler market and are undoubtedly the most widely used fillers to date. These compounds are biocompatible and afford volumising due to their capacity to retain water up to 1000 times their volume. However, longevity with the hyaluronans rarely extends beyond 12 months and moreover, the initial optimal level of aesthetic correction is rarely sustained over that time frame. Currently there is growing interest in collagen stimulating fillers that owe their unique mode of action due to the stimulation of soft tissue formation. There are only two options with respect to effective biostimulating fillers; namely poly-L-lactic acid and polycaprolactone-based fillers. To date, I have six years experience with ELLANSÉ -S, the polycaprolactone based ®

filler and have treated over 3,200 patients. Thus far, I have not encountered any cases of granuloma or serious adverse effects and ELLANSÉ -S has become the preferred filler in our group of clinics in Dubai. Volume replacement with ELLANSÉ -S is very appealing to most patients and satisfaction is very high since the augmentation is due to a natural stimulation of collagen production that results in sustained optimal correction for around two years post treatment. ®

®

Patients injected with ELLANSÉ -S in various areas of the face have been followed up for up to three years post treatment and objective measurement of volume in the treated areas have been calculated using the Canfield Vectra system. In all cases I have obtained evidence for true biostimulation in terms of an increase in volume with time, up to 4 months post injection. Skin biopsies post ELLANSÉ have shown evidence of increased formation in Type I, high tensile strength collagen*. ®

®

ELLANSÉ offers highly effective, longlasting and natural results in terms of pan facial correction. In particular, restoration of the lower face such as definition of the posterior mandibular border as well as chin lengthening and projection, areas that are normally challenging in terms of effective and sustained correction with hyaluronans, are very effectively treated with the polycaprolactone-based filler. ®

ELLANSÉ is a Unique and Innovative collagen stimulator which introduces a new era of safe and innovative solutions for facial beauty treatments. ®

The ELLANSÉ Range combines the benefits of both immediate correction of wrinkles and folds as well as stimulating the generation of the body’s own natural collagen for beautiful, fresh and long-lasting results. ®

Collagen is one of the important support structures found naturally in our skin, helping to maintain the appropriate tightness, elasticity and suppleness. Over the course of time, our skin gradually loses its natural collagen, leading to facial laxity and the formation of wrinkles and folds.

ELLANSÉ uses the body’s natural response to stimulate the generation of the body’s own collagen restoring a fresh, youthful look. ®
