Ellanse(少女针) – everything you need to know

Ellanse or known as 少女针 in Mandarin have been making waves all around in China and Malaysia.

So what exactly is it and what makes it so attractive ? Here’s everything you need to know about this beauty treatment. 什么是少女针?为什么它那么火红?我们来讨论少女针的好处!

  1. What is Ellanse? 少女针的成分是什么?

Ellanse is actually a dermal filler made from 30% Polycaprolactone (PCL) and 70%Carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) gel. PCL is a biostimulator which is commonly used in regenerative medicines, implants, wound healing due to it’s collagen stimulating effect.

少女针的成分主要是30%PCL+70%的CMC。PCL是一种可被人体完全吸收的医疗机级聚合物,经欧盟认证及美国食品药物管理局核准的聚合物,常常用于伤口敷料、骨科用植体、伤口缝线等,刺激自体胶原蛋白增生。

The Carboxymethlycellulose (CMC) gel works like other dermal fillers by immediately filling and replenish the volume loss and will be absorbed after a while.

CMC凝胶载体会在治疗过一段时间后,逐渐被人体吸收。它的用处就是让皮肤变得饱满。

2. What is Ellanse used for ? Ellansé 能治疗什么?

  • Skin laxity and sagginess 皮肤松弛
  • Volume loss or hollowness  填平凹陷
  • Facial contouring or augmentation 提升轮廓
  • Acne scars 减少痘疤

3. Is Ellanse safe? 少女针安全吗?

Ellansé™ is totally biocompatible and biodegradable. It is injected into the skin via needle/ cannula.

When the CMC is absorbed, the PCL component will start stimulating collagen. After the PCL component has been absorbed, collagen stimulation will STILL take place, hence improving the skin texture over time.

当CMC被吸收后,PCL就马上发挥作用啦,刺激胶原蛋白增生,让皮肤继续紧致,当PCL被吸收后,新生的胶原蛋白还能维持一段时间

4. How many types are there? 少女针有几种类?

There are 4 types of Ellanse fillers; Ellanse S, M, L, and E. The differences between the 4 would be the longevity / reabsorption rate by the body.

少女针不是永久型填充物,提供四个版本可供选择,依据效果长度可分为S(一年)、M(两年)、L(三年)、E(四年)。

5. How long is the downtime ? 少女针的过度期是几久 ?

Essentially, Ellanse is injected somewhat like hyaluronic acid fillers. There isn’t much of downtime but please be noted that some people may experience mild bruising or swelling as there is still a needle poking in. The effects such as bruising and swelling may subside within 24 hours to 72 hours

多数使用者注射后不会影响日常生活,少部分使用者注射后可能发生肿胀发红的状况,但一般在24小时到72小时内就会恢复.
