What is Ellacor?

Ellacor is a revolutionary technology that uses a method known as tissue micro-coring. It is not laser therapy or microneedling. In a span of only 10 to 15 minutes, this unique treatment can successfully remove 10,000 to 12,000 microscopic skin cores (tiny fragments of skin). Over the course of several days, these small holes in the skin heal up. Patients start to notice smoother lines and tighter skin just 2 to 3 months after their initial procedure.

Using Ellacor leaves patients with a younger-looking appearance and no signs of scarring or markings on the skin. What's more, the procedure utilizes incredibly tiny needles that can still deliver remarkable results. Therefore, individuals now have access to an easy non-invasive treatment that can effectively rejuvenate their look–all while not leaving behind any scars.

What is the procedure for Ellacor?

The procedure itself is a comfortable one as it takes place in-office with light injections of lidocaine and injectable anesthetics to numb the treatment area. The device will then make tiny punctures and suction out small pieces of skin impossible to see with the naked eye. 

The level of treatment can be adjusted depending on your desires. All in all, Ellacor is the perfect option for anyone looking for a new way to rejuvenate their face and/or neck without invasive surgery.

What are the benefits of Ellacor?

Ellacor is a revolutionary procedure that eliminates excess, sagging skin and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles without requiring any incisions (and thus no scarring).

What can Ellacor address?

Ellacor's innovative micro-coring technology offers a safe and effective alternative to traditional invasive surgery. It uses a stainless steel 22 gauge needles that are only a millimeter in diameter, which effectively stimulate collagen production without leaving any visible scarring. This results in improved skin tightness in: 

  • The jawline
  • Cheeks
  • Jowls
  • Chin

Ellacor can provide a youthful look without the use of scalpels or going under anesthetic. Micro-coring provides an ideal solution for those looking for a non-surgical treatment for mild to moderate skin laxity and sagging.

Who is a good candidate for Ellacor?

Patients with mild-to-moderate skin laxity and moderate lines in the cheeks are excellent candidates to take advantage of this unique procedure, while anyone with severe levels of skin laxity may not experience optimal results.

What is the recovery for Ellacor?

Recovery from an Ellacor treatment is relatively fast, as any swelling and redness will fade away within a few days. Bruising may last for up to 10 days, but the time required for rest and recovery is generally about three days. Many find that the results are well worth the minimal recovery time. Most patients are comfortable returning to work or their usual activities within several days of their Ellacor treatment.
