Reveal your inner youth with the newest FDA cleared device to treat moderate to severe wrinkles in the mid to lower face using a patented Micro-Coring™ Procedure ~ Ellacor©.
We believe you are only as old as you feel.
But as we age, our skin may tell a different story.
When it comes to wrinkle reduction procedures, we also know that you want visible, natural-looking results without the excessive pain and extended recovery time that may be associated with more invasive surgeries or procedures. Introducing Ellacor® with Micro-Coring™ Technology – the first and only device of its kind that removes skin on the micro-scale for an improvement in the appearance of wrinkles. Let Ellacor© help reveal your inner youth.
If you want visible, natural-looking results without the excessive pain and extended recovery time that may be associated with more invasive surgeries or procedures, Ellacor© may be your answer.
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.
How does Ellacor© work?
Ellacor uses hollow needles to remove micro-cores of skin, resulting in an improved appearance of wrinkles without evidence of scarring.
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.
How many procedures will I need?
As every patient has different needs, please speak with your physician to determine the treatment plan that is right for you. In the clinical trial, most patients underwent a series of three procedures spaced approximately 30 days apart.
How long is a typical procedure?
An Ellacor procedure typically takes about 30 minutes or less.
Is the procedure painful?
Your physician will provide you with appropriate anesthesia prior to the procedure to make you more comfortable. Most patients in our clinical trial reported pain during the procedure as less than 2 on a 0-10 scale.1
Is the recovery time long?
Recovery time ranges from several days to weeks, which can vary by patient and treatment settings. Since every patient heals at different rates, patient results and experience may vary. Please consult with your Ellacor provider for more information.
Does Ellacor use laser, radio frequency, or ultrasound energy?
The Ellacor system is able to remove skin on the micro-scale without the use of thermal energy.
How is Ellacor different from micro-needling?
Microneedling uses small needles to injure the tissue, but skin is not removed during this procedure – the tissue is temporarily displaced. Ellacor is the first device to actually remove skin on the microscale.
How should I prepare for the Ellacor procedure?
Your physician will provide a complete list of requirements and guidelines during your consultation.
