Is Rejuran Healer or Ellanse more effective for under eyes dark circles?
I’m a 26 years old female. I have under eyes dark circles due to irregular sleeping patterns and loss of volume as I age. As both Rejuran and Ellanse promotes collagen production, which is more effective in producing more dramatic results? (Given the assumption that I either complete 3 sessions of Rejuran vs a one time off Ellanse treatment).
It is good that you have read about Rejuran and Ellanse and their properties of promoting collagen synthesis.
However, to answer your question accurately, I would first like to assess what “kind” of “under eye circles” or “eye bags” you really have. This is because different people have different ideas about these 2 terms, which are used so frequently.
For starters, the muscles, ligaments and fat pads around the eyes are complex structures with complex attachments. “Tear trough” deformities are best treated with a “soft” undereye filler. There are many brands available, but in general hyaluronic acid based fillers are preferred for this delicate area for a natural-looking appearance. For this reason, ellanse is not commonly used for under eye fillers.
As for rejuran, rejuran healer and rejuran for eye can be used in the area. However, the major benefit of a PDRN/PN treatment is for biorevitalization (e.g stimulating collagen) and not to treat areas of volume loss such as a tear trough deformity.
In addition, there are other conditions associated with “dark eye circles” and “eye bags” such as hypertrophic tarsal muscles and venous congestion around the eyes, which are not treated with rejuran or ellanse. Do seek out a consult with a trusted doctor for more information!

Dark eye circle can be due to a combination of factors and it can be treated with injectables like filler (Ellanse) or PDRN (Rejuran).
- Volume loss
- Congested vessels
Rejuran and Ellanse have their own unique properties. Rejuran is a skin healer that can help with skin repair, improving skin texture and reducing pigmentation. There is Rejuran i that is designed for usage around the eye region due to its lower viscosity.
Ellanse is a semi permanent collagen stimulating filler that can help with volume restoration and lifting of the face. Ellanse as a filler will be able to give you immediate results right after the injection. Rejuran will take a more gradual approach as the best result is often seen after the 3rd dose.
Filler injection will be more suitable for you if your dark eye circle is largely due to volume loss. It will also be able give you immediate result. It is important to consult a doctor to get a proper assessment first before deciding on the type of treatment. Hope this helps!

Hi there Imah,
The answer is neither. The only filler that is designed for dark eye circles is Teosyal Redensity 2. Teosyal Redensity 2 has the special patented formula of Dermal Restructuring Complex (DRC), that contains 8 amino acids, 3 (glutathione, acetylcysteine, alpha-lipoic acid) anti-oxidants, 2 minerals (zinc, copper) and 1 vitamin(B6), on top of the premium Swiss-made semi-crosslinked hyaluronic acid.
The DRC is a skin-restructuring , skin health improving and brightening /whitening complex.
Usually dramatic improvements can be seen with this filler if injected appropriately in the right layers.
