The Ellacor system is a groundbreaking development in the aesthetics industry with its revolutionary micro-coring technology. Utilizing hollowed-out needles, this FDA-cleared technology creates and removes thousands of skin cells to stimulate the body's natural healing and renewal processes. This treatment ultimately results in a more youthful appearance without any signs of scarring or markings on the skin.
What is Ellacor?
Ellacor stands out from other minimally-invasive treatments with its unique micro-coring technology that takes only 10 to 15 minutes to carry out its function. This specialized approach works by extracting thousands of microscopic skin fragments. Following this treatment, it takes a few days for the skin to heal before patients start seeing their desired results. After 2 to 3 months, patients notice a sizable reduction in skin laxity and fine lines. What's more, the needles used are so small that they don’t cause scars but are still able to deliver outstanding rejuvenating effects.
What can Ellacor address?
For those looking to improve the look and feel of their skin but who are not ready for a surgical procedure, Ellacor micro-coring technology is a game-changer. This cutting-edge cosmetic treatment utilizes patented stainless steel 22-gauge micro-needles to address mild to moderate skin laxity and saggy areas around the jawline, cheeks, jowls, and chin.
Unlike more invasive treatments, Ellacor leaves behind no visible scars. After just a few treatments, clients can experience a remarkably improved skin tone and contour without any surgery or downtime.
What is the procedure for Ellacor?
While the procedure is totally non-surgical, patients will be given local anesthesia to ensure that they are comfortable throughout the procedure. An Ellacor handpiece equipped with tiny needles is then used to punch out small pieces of skin that are imperceivable to the naked eye. The device gently suctions out the removed skin. Ellacor is a safe, easy way to improve one's appearance with minimal discomfort!
What is the recovery for Ellacor?
Ellacor is a great option for those who want to minimize signs of aging, such as wrinkles and loose skin but would rather forgo more involved treatment protocols such as surgery. Recovery generally requires several days of rest and recuperation as you heal and initial swelling, bleeding, oozing, and redness fade. Most patients feel comfortable and recovered enough to get back to work and their social lives after just a few days. However, patients should keep in mind that bruising will last anywhere from a week to ten days.
Who is a good candidate for Ellacor?
The best candidates for Ellacor are usually people with moderate skin laxity issues and early signs of lines and wrinkles on the cheeks. Patients with more progressed cases of skin laxity might not achieve their desired results with Ellacor. However, those with moderate issues will see great improvement. Candidates should meet the following qualifications:
- Are in good physical and mental health
- Have no serious medical conditions such as a bleeding disorder or autoimmune condition
- Have no history of keloids
