What Are Ellanse Smart Fillers?
With its effects lasting from one to four years and its biological absorbability, smart fillers are among the new generation bio-compatible collagen stimulators.
The main active ingredient in the smart filler is Polycaprolactone (PCL) and it constitutes 30% of the filler product. The semi-synthetic, water-soluble polymer called Carboxymethyl Cellulose (CMC), which is used as a carrier and volume coater, forms 70% of the filling mixture. The CMC carrier material, which provides the feeling of fullness, generally dissolves within a month after the procedure.
The new collagen fibers produced are Type I collagen, also found in our skin. Type I collagen is the most common collagen type found in the body. Other collagen stimulating fillers stimulate Type III collagen, which is the type of collagen prominent in wound healing and gives the skin flexibility and strength. This difference is the most important factor that distinguishes smart fillers from other collagen stimulating fillers.
How Is the Procedure Carried Out?
After applying anesthetic cream to the treatment areas, small amounts of fillers are injected under the skin. After the treatment, it is possible to resume daily activities immediately. Smart filler application does not intervene with the social life of the patient. The slight fullness visible after the application is due to the formulation of the gel, and it is a temporary situation and resolves within a few weeks. It is necessary to wait 3 to 4 months to ensure sufficient collagen formation in the body and to see the real effects of the treatment.

What Are The Differences Between Smart Fillers and Other Filler Applications?
Collagen is one of the key building blocks naturally found in our skin that helps maintain the firmness, elasticity and softness.

Ellanse Smart Filler uses the body's natural response to stimulate the formation of new collagen, which helps restore a lively and youthful appearance.

Smart fillers have 90% patient satisfaction and 92% physician satisfaction rates according to the Global Aesthetic Improvement Rate (GAİS) in a 12-month evaluation. It is also a filler material with results proven with statistical data. In clinical studies, when the patients who had smart filler application were evaluated after 12 months, it was seen that the skin structure was significantly better than the baseline values.
Being fully reabsorbable by the body, smart fillers are completely eliminated from the body as CO2 and water through normal metabolic mechanisms when the intended duration for the effects is reached.
Smart fillers, which are approved medical products that have been safety tested, do not contain animal, plant, or human-derived substances. Owing to the microspheres in these products, they have a predictable and controlled safety profile. Another important advantage of the smart filler, which suits the skin texture of the person with its soft and natural appearance, is that its effect starts in 1 month and persists for 4 months. This poses an advantage for patients as it does not cause a rapid increase in volume. It can be said that this filler type is superior to others in reliability.
