The unique properties of the perfect polycaprolactone (PCL) microspheres in Ellansé make them highly resistant to engulfment by macrophages, thereby preventing inflammatory reactions in the body. In addition, following hydrolysis, the components of Ellansé are fully converted into H2O and CO2, which can be safely absorbed by the human body. The unique size and characteristics of the surface of the PCL microspheres in Ellansé allow macrophages to form a mesh-like collagen framework on the surface of the microspheres rather than engulfing them, resulting in firmer and more elastic facial skin.
3D PLLA, which is injected in its liquid state, is commonly used in cosmetic treatments to fill in wrinkles, depressions, and sagging skin. It can initially cause temporary swelling and expansion due to the moisture content in the mixture. However, within 3-5 days, the water is metabolized, the original wrinkles and depressions will reappear, and the remaining 3D PLLA powder will begin to stimulate the gradual growth of autologous collagen proteins.
Ellansé utilizes PCL microcrystal spheres which stimulate collagen production to maintain long-lasting treatment effects. The injection is available in four different versions: S, M, L, and E, each containing different PCL compositions and varying durations of effectiveness
In Taiwan, only the one-year S formulation and the two-year M formulation of Ellansé are currently approved for use.。

1、Individuals who may not be suitable for the injection: those who have drug allergies, are pregnant, are breastfeeding, have neuromuscular diseases like myasthenia gravis or multiple sclerosis, those with severe heart, liver, kidney, or lung diseases, those with connective tissue diseases, or those who are currently taking muscle relaxants.
2、Individuals who have open wounds or severe cystic acne on the treatment area are not suitable for injection.
The effects can be seen immediately after injection and will continue to improve and become more refined as collagen grows.
Both are collagen-inducing fillers that stimulate the body’s production of collagen to naturally increase the thickness of the dermis. However, Ellansé can be injected directly and will immediately fill the treatment area after the mixture has been sterilized and opened, while Sculptra must be mixed with water to create the treatment contents before it can be injected. Unlike Ellansé and other injectable materials that are commonly measured in CCs, Sculptra is measured by bottles. After opening the bottles of its initial white powder form, it needs to be mixed with water and allowed to settle for 48 hours to create the proper injectable mixture.
Ellansé is commonly known as the “miracle injection” or the “youthful injection” on the market, while Sculptra is commonly known as the “baby face injection”.
Ellansé is a non-permanent filler that comes in four different manufacturer versions, with varying durations for consumers to choose from. The available versions include the S version, which lasts for one year; the M version, which lasts for two years; the L version, which lasts for three years; and the E version, which lasts for four years. In Taiwan, only the S and M versions of Ellansé can be legally obtained at present.
