The ellacor® System with Micro-Coring™ technology is indicated for use by our qualified providers for the treatment of moderate and severe wrinkles in the mid and lower face in adults aged 22 years or older. Patients will usually need a series of three procedures spaced approximately 30 days apart. Procedure itself is about 30 mins. Downtime is around 3 days but less in some cases.
How it Works.
Ellacor uses hollow needles to remove micro-cores of skin, resulting in an improved appearance of moderate and severe wrinkles in the mid and lower face without the evidence of scarring.
Is the procedure painful?
Your provider will provide you with appropriate anesthesia prior to the procedure to make you more comfortable. In a clinical trial performed by Ellacor it reported pain during the procedure as less than 2 on a 0-10 scale.
How is ellacor different from other skin revitalization devices?
Ellacor removes micro-portions of excess skin to achieve an improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, whereas many other skin revitalization devices use heat generated by laser, radio frequency and ultrasound energy to induce intentional thermal injury to the skin.
