Ellanse for Cheeks: What do they do to Your Face?
Do you look into the mirror and feels awful about some sections of your face looking more tired or old but can’t pinpoint what’s causing all that? Well, you could be dealing with facial volume loss.
Fortunately for you, it is a natural thing and really not a medical concern. When you age, the collagen and fat pads responsible for keeping your skin intact and smooth gradually reduce, leaving you with loose sagging skin, hollow temples, flattened cheeks, or even sunken-in eye sockets.
If these appearances don’t sit well with you, consult with the Artisan Clinic to schedule an aesthetic treatment to help you knock off a few years off your appearance. If you’re dealing with flattened cheeks, one of the most common treatments we’d recommend is Ellanse for cheeks.
Read on to see what they do to your face, how long it would take to experience a change, and whether they can go wrong. We’ll also be keen to touch on other interesting things you may wish to know before consenting to the treatment.
What do Ellanse Cheek Fillers do to Your Face?
Ellanse for cheeks is a cheek filler treatment specially formulated to add lift to your cheekbones and volumize your face, thereby smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines to make your face appear younger. After your treatment, you will be able to notice immediate and long-term effects.
Some of the immediate effects you can expect after getting Ellanse for cheeks include an increased volume on your cheeks. You may also notice facial contouring, a correction of your wrinkles and folds.
Ellanse cheek fillers are FDA approved, meaning that the treatments are safe on your face unless administered incorrectly or you have any contraindications. For your treatment, your aesthetic doctor will prepare your skin and inject Ellanse fillers beneath your skin.
The fillers will then induce long term effects in your system, which is collagen stimulation. Ellanse cheek fillers, therefore, work by stimulating collagen production in your skin to help it regain the volume it had lost with age.
These filler materials won’t last in your skin forever though. They will gradually be broken down in your system.
However, since Ellanse fillers stimulate collagen production in your skin, you may still be able to see the long-term beneficial effects of this treatment even after they have been reabsorbed into your body. The results may vary depending on how deep your skin doctor injected the fillers beneath your skin, their technique, and in some cases, individual differences.
After How long Will I See an Improvement after Getting Ellanse for Cheeks?
You will need just one treatment, which would take around 30 to 45 minutes. As we had highlighted early in this guide, you may notice increased volume on the treated area immediately after your injection.
However, it may take up to three months to notice the full results as volumization gradually develops for up to 90 days as the microspheres in this filler gel stimulate your body to produce collagen. So, it typically takes about three months to experience the best results after fresh new collagen has been produced under your skin.
Can Ellanse for Cheeks go wrong?
Considering that Ellanse is officially FDA approved, it is very safe to get this treatment from a trained and experienced aesthetic doctor. Like any other injections, it also comes with a few side effects that you may need to be aware of before scheduling a treatment.
Some of the common side effects you can experience after your treatment include; swelling, bruising, and redness around the treatment area. Usually, these localized reactions are mild and should resolve within a few days.
Other adverse health reactions that may result if Ellanse goes wrong include; infections, hardening of tissues, or even allergic attacks. In most cases, these severe health reactions result from medical errors by the injecting physician.
That’s why it is always important that you insist on working with an experienced and board-certified aesthetic doctor. Other than the errors that may be caused by an incompetent physician, there are a few things your provider will advise you against to avoid adverse reactions to the treatment.
For instance, you will be required to avoid engaging in any strenuous physical activity for at least 24 hours after your treatment. You will also need to avoid washing the treated area with hot water or having steam baths etc.
It is also imperative that you do not expose the treated area to direct sunlight for at least seven days following your treatment. You will also need to avoid applying makeup on the treated areas as they may cause infections that may be hard to deal with.
Can Ellanse be dissolved?
Now, even though Ellanse for cheeks is a filler material, you should not confuse it with hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. It is not hyaluronic acid filler; therefore, it cannot be dissolved.
Besides, it lasts for a considerably long period, usually 2 to 4 years to be broken down once introduced in your body, so you need to be aware of that too before your treatment. The fact that Ellanse can’t be removed just adds more weight to the need for a certified aesthetic doctor to administer your treatment to avoid the risks of Ellanse overfilling.
With that being said, it is prudent that you always get professional advice from a seasoned skin doctor before proceeding with your treatment. Here are a few things you may need to look for to determine that your aesthetic dermatologist is qualified and the right one for you;
- The doctor should be board-certified. The aesthetic industry is unregulated, so your best bet would be to work with a board-certified aesthetic physician.
- Check for reputation. The reputation of your doctor will give you an insight into how past clients view his/her services. Reviews can be a valuable resource in this regard.
- Ask to see before and after images of the patients they’ve helped before. Finally, you can be assured by your aesthetician’s skills by going through the work he has done before.
