No, I’m not talking about miracles and magic fountains of youth nor elixirs.I’m talking about the highly raved treatment, the Dewy Shine Collagen Stimulation Treatment by Kowayo Aesthetics!
Without going under the knife, this non-invasive treatment helps to stimulate natural collagen, helping you look youthful and radiant.We hear collagen being tossed about these days, but what is it exactly?
Collagen is basically the protein that is responsible for maintaining structure and firmness of your skin.
When we age, our collagen content diminishes and causes our skin to sag and lose its suppleness.Combined with unhealthy lifestyles, including lack of sleep, stress, smoking and too much time spent on the computer, the loss of collagen is accelerated.
This is especially obvious around the eye area, making one look tired and older.
Even though I can’t say that I’m an aged woman, my dark eye circle problem is rather obvious.
Hence, on 26th May 2017, I decided to try the Dewy Shine Ellanse treatment which promised to not only add volume and plump up sunken areas of the face due to loss of collagen and elasticity; but also stimulate the production of my own collagen for a natural looking lift.
Ellanse is an award-winning next-generation filler, which consists of polycaprolactone (PCL) and a carrier gel. PCL has been safely used in medical devices for many years and is responsible for the collagen production.
It can be used to “lift” cheeks, enhance the forehead, temples, laughlines and eye areas to create a more youthful apperance. PCL is also FDA-approved for its safety and is eventually expelled completely from the body.
There are four different versions of Ellanse (S, M, L, E) based on the longevity of one, two, three and four years respectively.
Ellanse – E, which can last up to 4 years, is currently the most durable filler in the market; making it cost effective and reducing the number of injections required.
For most patients, the results of Ellanse are visible after 1 treatment and will progressively improve. The Ellanse collagen stimulation treatment benefits skin conditions such as sagging cheeks, enlarged pores and acne scarring, although individual results may vary.
Burning questions you want to ask
A treatment takes approximately 30 minutes allowing you to go straight back
to your normal daily life.
I went for the treatment during my lunch break, and was able to head back to work straight after!2. How long will the results last?
You will get natural, smooth and immediate results, that last from 1 to 4 years
depending on which ELLANSETM option your physician recommends to you.
The correction is maintained over the total duration of the option chosen; enabling
you to avoid multiple sessions.3. How many sessions are generally needed?
With ELLANSE, only one session is needed to obtain immediate results and
long-lasting correction, making ELLANSE a cost effective treatment; excellent value for money.
4. What should I do after the treatment?
It is recommended to avoid hot bathing (eg. saunas) and vigorous exercise for 24 hours as well as over-exposure to the sun and UV light for 1 week after treatment.
5. Are there any side effects?
As with any injection, there may be side effects such as localised redness,
swelling and bruising.
Personally, I experienced some bruising around my eye area.
However, Dr Wong did reassure me that this was normal and that the bruising will go away pretty soon.
True enough, it subsided over the next few days.
“Dr wong will see you now.”
