How does ellacor work?

Ellacor uses hollow needles to remove micro-cores of skin, resulting in an improved appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles in the mid and lower face without the evidence of scarring.

Benefits of ellacor Micro-Coring

• In-office procedure performed under local anesthesia.
• Visible, natural-looking results.
• 90% of patients showed improvement in moderate to severe wrinkles.
• Precisely removes excess skin from targeted areas.

Who is an ideal candidate for a Micro-Coring treatment?

Ellacor is ideal for patients looking for a non-surgical solution for mid-to-lower face wrinkles and excess skin. Ellacor is approved for Fitzpatrick skin types I-IV, which means it may not be a good option for patients with darker skin tones. Ellacor should not be performed on people who have medical conditions that inhibit proper wound healing and women who are pregnant.

What to Expect from an ellacor Micro-Coring Treatment

On the day of your procedure, you will receive a local anesthetic to the treated area to help you stay comfortable during the procedure. Once your skin is numb, our Provider will strategically place the ellacor device to your skin to create micro-cores in a precise grid pattern. Excess skin will be removed through hollow needles, but the micro-cores are so tiny that they will begin to heal almost immediately. The number of treatments needed varies by patient.

What is the recovery time?

Ellacor is a minimally invasive procedure that requires minimal downtime ranging from several days to weeks, depending on the patient and treatment settings.
