Collagen is an integral part of our skin structure as it helps maintain suppleness and elasticity. And the loss of collagen can lead to visible signs of ageing such as wrinkles, sagging skin, and a tired appearance in general. Studies have shown that we lose up to 5ml of facial volume every year: And with such a rapid rate of attrition, it is imperative that we replace this loss in volume quickly and effectively to reduce the signs of ageing. Volume loss can be replaced through permanent fillers such as implants and synthetic collagen, but these methods have fallen out of favour because of the unnatural results produced.
Introducing Ellanse, Kowayo Aesthetic Clinic’s latest offering, which promises miraculous rejuvenation and delivers just that. Kowayo is proud to be one of the pioneer clinics to bring in Ellanse to Singapore. Ellanse is a unique and innovative product which regenerates youth and vitality by stimulating your own collagen production.
Ellanse tackles the root of the problem by stimulating collagen production, yielding natural and long-lasting results with virtually no downtime. With just a few tiny injections, Ellanse visibly returns youth and vitality to your appearance. Treatments are customised in-house to suit individual needs. At Kowayo, every treatment is professionally tailored to meet the clients’ concerns and expectations.
Conventional fillers are usually made up of Hyaluronic acid and the effects last between nine and 18 months. And, Ellanse consists of poly-caprolacton (PCL) – the next-generation biostimulator – suspended within a gel carrier, which stimulates collagen production for a naturally youthful look. What’s more, Ellanse is reabsorbed completely by the body, and is an FDA-approved, CE-marked product with an excellent safety profile.
Ellanse comes in four different versions of durability, ranging between one, two, three and four years. This allows patients a greater level of customisation, and is not only cost-effective, but also reduces the number of injections needed. Procedures are hence fuss-free and non-invasive without compromising on the desired results.
For a younger and refreshed appearance, it is recommended that you start with your cheeks and under-eyes. Ellanse fills out sunken eyes and smile lines, reducing the signs of ageing drastically. For those with sagging skin, injecting the temples or the forehead helps lift the face and drooping eyelids.
Ellanse can even tackle stubborn problems such as sunken cheeks or short chins – one can undergo afull face lift without needing to go under the knife. Besides the face, Ellanse can rejuvenate your hands that are showing signs of ageing too.
Other collagen stimulation treatments include tired eye-correction, which specifically aims to rejuvenate the under-eye area by stimulating collagen production. This treatment can correct dark circles without any lumpiness or stiffness endemic to synthetic fillers, producing natural looking results. It provides an instant boost of vitality with minimal discomfort or downtime.
Kowayo Aesthetic Clinic also offers Kowayo Facelift, a non-invasive, painless way of lifting sagging skin. This procedure utilises advanced energy-based medical devices to produce tighter skin for a rejuvenated appearance, and can be combined with fillers or Ellanse at strategic areas to provide further lifting-support for the face. Patients requiring more intensive lifting may also opt for Korea Thread Lift, which aims to correct even the most stubborn of sagging skin, allowing everyone to experience the miracle of rejuvenation.
