How Does Ellacor® Work for Skin Tightening?
As we age, our bodies naturally produce less collagen and elastin. This leads to loose, sagging skin, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. One of the ways Ellacor® tightens skin is by increasing collagen production.
The Ellacor® Micro-Coring™ technology uses tiny, hollow needles to puncture the skin and remove thousands of microcores. The skin immediately begins healing these micro-wounds, stimulating new collagen and elastin production.
This collagen-inducing treatment is similar to microneedling, but Ellacor® takes it a step further. As the microcores are removed, the skin pulls together to seal the punctures. This naturally lifts and tightens the skin for a smoother, firmer appearance.
What are Ellacor® Treatments Like?
Before your Ellacor® treatment at Capital Laser, we will apply a topical numbing cream to ensure your comfort. We will then move the Ellacor® device over your face, during which you may feel some tingling but no pain. The hollow needles are less than .5 mm, creating tiny punctures that will begin healing immediately and won’t scar.
