Using unique FDA-cleared technology, Ellacor™ can deliver tighter skin with fewer wrinkles and improved skin laxity. 

Ellacor™ provides a new method for rapidly tightening skin and reducing wrinkles. This treatment removes tiny cores of skin that start to heal within seconds, and as a result, you will see the skin of your lower face look firmer and smoother.

How Does Ellacor™ Work?

This treatment removes micro-cores of skin a few micrometers thick. These will start to close-up quickly and begin the healing process within seconds. As the skin around these areas pulls together to close the micro-core gaps, it tightens and lifts. Ellacor™ has been approved to treat moderate to severe lines and wrinkles on the lower face. However, its tightening results can also firm the jawline and delay or eliminate the need for more invasive procedures. 

While Ellacor™ produces immediate results as the skin contracts around the micro-cores to close the gaps, it also initiates a healing a repair process in the skin. This causes the cells to produce more collagen, giving the skin new firmness and support to keep it looking lifted and smooth.

What is Ellacor™ Treatment Like?

Your expert treatment provider will apply numbing cream or inject numbing medication to keep you comfortable during the procedure. The handheld Ellacor™ device removes a series of micro-cores each time as it moves over your face. The numbing should keep you from feeling anything except possibly some tingling.

What Results Will I See After Ellacor™ Treatment?

Your results will become fully visible after a few weeks as the skin remodels itself. Most people will need two to three treatments. Full results may not appear until several months later as the body continues to produce new collagen and build a more youthful, skin-firming network for your skin. Ellacor™ results are expected to be long-lasting, however additional treatments may be considered to maintain the best overall improvement.

How Much Downtime Will I Have After Ellacor™ Treatment?

You will have about three days of downtime, during which your skin may look red and feel somewhat sore and swollen. Complete closure of the micro-cores can take up to a week, so you will need to use only gentle products as directed by your physician. You will also need to avoid sun exposure during healing. Wearing sunscreen with at least an SPF 30 will help your results last longer.

Am I a Good Candidate for Ellacor™?

If you have skin laxity or lines and wrinkles in the lower face area, you may be a good candidate for Ellacor™. Let your dermatologist know if you have a history of forming abnormal raised scars (keloids) or have an active skin infection or condition.
