ellacor® With Micro-Coring

Science Meets Beauty with Micro-Coring Precision

Discover the Future of Skincare

With ellacor®, you can embark on a journey towards ageless beauty. Using Micro-Coring Technology, ellacor® delivers remarkable results that minimize fine lines and wrinkles while enhancing overall skin texture and radiance. This cutting-edge device is the first and only of its kind that removes skin on the microscale, resulting in a 90% improvement in the appearance of wrinkles. Say goodbye to repetitive skincare routines and hello to transformative capabilities with ellacor® and Micro-Coring Technology!


How Does ellacor Work?

ellacor uses hollow needles to remove micro-cores of skin, resulting in natural-looking results without the evidence of scarring. These needles are designed to penetrate the skin at a precise depth, removing a tiny core of skin tissue. This process stimulates the body's natural healing response, promoting collagen production and skin regeneration to close the cores. The result is a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance that is free from the signs of aging.


ellacor Benefits

In addition to its remarkable wrinkle-reducing capabilities, ellacor can be used to improve the appearance of other skin issues, such as:

  • Acne scars
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Uneven skin texture

This makes it ideal for anyone seeking a more youthful, radiant complexion.

Other benefits include the following:

  • Unlike other invasive procedures, ellacor's Micro-Coring Technology is minimally invasive and requires little to no downtime
  • The in-office procedure is performed under local anesthesia and lasts just thirty minutes
  • Visible, natural-looking results

Who Is An Ideal Candidate For ellacor?

The ellacor Micro-Coring procedure is an excellent option for adults looking to improve the visible signs of facial aging and skin laxity. However, candidacy for this procedure depends on certain factors:

  • Ideal candidates are experiencing visible signs of facial aging and are seeking an improvement in skin laxity
  • Ideal candidates are Fitzpatrick skin types I-IV
  • It is not recommended for patients with darker skin tones
  • It is not recommended for people with medical conditions that inhibit proper wound healing
  • It is not recommended for pregnant women

What to Expect From An ellacor Micro-Coring Procedure

During your ellacor procedure, here's what you can expect:

  • You’ll receive a local anesthetic to the treated area to help you stay comfortable during the procedure
  • Once your skin is numb, we’ll strategically place the ellacor device on your skin to create micro-cores in a precise grid pattern
  • This ensures that the treatment is evenly distributed and that you achieve the best possible results
  • The excess skin will be removed through hollow needles, which are designed to penetrate the skin at a precise depth
  • This process stimulates the body's natural healing response, promoting collagen production and skin regeneration

The micro-cores created by the ellacor device are so tiny that they begin to heal almost immediately. This means that you can expect minimal downtime and a quick recovery.
