At Reserve Dermatology and Aesthetics, we recognize the constant evolution in skin tightening procedures can make finding the right cosmetic procedure difficult. Fortunately, we offer Ellacor—an FDA-approved technology using micro-coring to address skin laxity and significant wrinkles in the neck. While this new technique already has FDA approval for skin tightening capabilities in the neck, Ellacor will soon be receiving FDA approval for noninvasive scarless treatments in other areas with excess skin.

What is Ellacor

Ellacor utilizes micro-coring techniques to treat various skin issues. Thanks to its gentle ability to reduce skin laxity and severe wrinkles without damaging the skin, Ellacor has earned approval from the FDA. Its precise tightening mechanics have proven effective in addressing specific areas such as jowls, lines around the mouth, and sagging chin skin. By utilizing state-of-the-art micro-coring, Ellacor offers minimally invasive removal of blemishes without causing scarring or unnatural outcomes.

Who is a Candidate for Ellacor?

Ideal candidates are those seeking minimally invasive treatments to address jowls, perioral lines, and chin skin concerns without scarring– other areas with excess skin or wrinkles may be candidates as determined during consultation. Candidates desiring significant skin tightening effects who are willing to undergo a series of sessions, depending on their skin’s condition, can benefit from this FDA-approved technology. Individuals seeking a swift recovery period and smoother skin texture within weeks to a month after treatment are prime candidates for Ellacor’s rejuvenating capabilities.

What Does Ellacor Help With?

Primarily, Ellacor helps diminish sagging skin, laxity, and elasticity by tightening and firming the mid and lower facial regions or other approved areas of concern, offering substantial tightening without scars or lengthy recoveries. Ellacor focuses on simultaneously reducing blemishes and encouraging smoother, youthful skin texture–revitalizing and rejuvenating the skin’s appearance to provide patients with a minimally invasive option for a lifted contour.

The Ellacor Procedure

The Ellacor procedure involves the use of hollow needles gently puncturing the skin. Before the treatment, a local numbing agent ensures patient comfort. These needles then extract micro-cores of skin to diminish wrinkles in the treatment region. The device uses controlled movements to reduce imperfections across the treatment area. This procedure typically lasts between 30 to 45 minutes and does not require a period of rest afterward.

Recovery and Results from Ellacor

After Ellacor, patients might experience temporary redness, crusting, swelling, and bruising that could persist for five to seven days. Recovery times can vary, and a mild pinkness may be apparent for a few weeks post-treatment. Reserve Dermatology and Aesthetics will provide comprehensive aftercare instructions to assist with recovery— it is important to note that to avoid compromising results, patients should avoid sun exposure until their treatment area has fully healed.
