Ellanse Vs Dermal Fillers

Ellanse is different from other fillers, as it gives the desired beautiful aesthetic result that lasts longer than conventional dermal fillers.The unique advantages of Ellanse are sustained performance, tunable longevity and total bioresorbability.
Ellanse also offers the advantage over other fillers, as it allows immediate correction and sustained performance from one up to four years.
