Dr Teri Johnson provides Ellansé Treatments in her clinic in Cheshire.
What is Ellansé?
Ellansé is a Dermal Filler and a Collagen Stimulator. It is a Unique and Innovative Dermal Filler which introduces a new era of safe and innovative solutions for facial aesthetic treatments.
The Ellansé Range combines the benefits of both immediate correction of wrinkles and folds, as well as stimulating the generation of the body’s natural collagen, for beautiful, fresh and longer-lasting results.
Collagen is an essential structure giving support to our skin. Collagen helps to maintain tightness, elasticity and suppleness. Over time, our skin gradually loses its natural collagen, leading to facial laxity and the formation of wrinkles and folds. Ellansé uses the body’s natural response to stimulate the body’s collagen (neocollagenesis) – restoring a fresh, youthful look.
The Ellansé range of products addresses your needs for beautiful, fresh, longer-lasting and cost-effective results. Its three distinctive versions allow you to choose how long you would like the results to last, eliminating the need for frequent repeat treatments.
The ELLANSÉ Range is available in three versions:
- ELLANSÉ-S (1 year)
- ELLANSÉ-M (2 years)
- ELLANSÉ-L (3 years)
Is Ellansé Safe?
ELLANSÉ is a Medical Device Class III8. It has CE approval and has been available in the UK since 2010. Ellansé has high clinical safety data.

You should contact us if you experience any side effect or have questions before or after your treatment.
Avoid applying makeup to the treated area for the next 24 hours after treatment.
Avoid vigorous exercise, hot baths, sun and heat exposure for two days after treatment.
How long does an Ellansé treatment take?
A typical Ellansé treatment with Dr Teri in her Cheshire Clinic takes 30 minutes to an hour. The treatment time will depend on the treatment areas, the amount of product used, and the technique used during treatment.
How often will I need an Ellansé treatment?
Each Ellansé product has an estimated duration time. However, this can vary depending on the individual.
Results last around one year with Ellansé S or 2 years with Ellansé M.
For more extensive restorative improvements, Dr Teri recommends a course of treatments.
Dr Teri recommends an initial treatment with Ellansé S and a review after 3-4 months. The collagen stimulation effect can be assessed and further treatment discussed. This will depend on the results you want to achieve and your preferred schedule.
Dr Teri recommends a review appointment 3-6 months after each treatment. This helps you and her to monitor the results over time and to determine when different touch-ups are needed to maintain the desired appearance.
