Ellanse dermal filler
Ellanse isn't available in the U.S. though it has been used extensively in Europe for several years. As such we cannot comment on the reliability and safety of the product because we can't use it here.
Ellanse sounds very promising.
It is similar to Sculptra but works better, according to Dr Nick Lowe. He spoke about Ellanse this weekend at the AACD meeting in LA. He works in London but used to teach at UCLA . Likes it right after Subcision for acne and traumatic scars and for hand rejuvenation. Not FDA approved. We will keep our eye on it.
This product is not currently approved/used in the US. I would make sure to ask your physician their experience with the product, if you are outside of the States. Best of luck.

Ellanse is not approved for use in the United States, so it can not be used in this country. If you live outside the US, it is possible to receive this filler. If this is your first time receiving a filler, I would start off with a reversible product (i.e. hyaluronic acid) in case you are not pleased with the outcome. Ellanse is a long lasting product that can last years. If you like the results from the hyaluronic acid filler, you can consider proceeding with Ellanse, if you live in a country that allows this product.
