Are you interested in achieving a more youthful and tighter look to the skin on your face without undergoing a surgical procedure? If so Ellacor could be the solution that you’ve been looking for. Check out how Ellacor can offer you the skin-tightening and renewal benefits that you desire without the invasive qualities you don’t.
Ellacor is a cutting-edge non-surgical treatment that is designed to help tighten and lift the skin of the face, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and produce a more youthful and supple look. Quick and effective, the Ellacor system is a good procedure for those 22 years of age and older who are looking to target wrinkles and skin laxity in areas like the jawline, the lower cheeks, the area under the chin, and around the mouth and lips.
Ellacor leverages the benefits of microcoring to tighten the skin and reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles without requiring more invasive procedures. It achieves this using hollow needles that remove micro-cores of the skin in order to promote elastin and collagen production. Unlike traditional microneedling, Ellacor’s hollow needles remove microscopic skin particles, making it more effective in order to achieve better results.
Knowing what to expect before you schedule a consultation can make it easier to plan around the procedure and eliminate any questions or concerns you may have.
A topical anesthetic is applied to your face in order to ensure that you’re comfortable throughout the procedure, which many describe as a minor pressure as the needles are applied to the area that you’re looking to improve. Sessions generally last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, after which you’ll be able to return to your usual schedule around three to five days after the procedure.
Recovery is typically quick as well. During the healing period, you may experience minor symptoms like soreness and redness, bruising, and swelling in the areas of the face where the procedure was done. It’s important to use gentle skincare products and to avoid heavy makeup and other products that could cause damage during this time. It’s also important to avoid sun damage both now and in the future. You will be able to return to your usual activities after 3-5 days and will experience complete healing after one week. It is recommended that you stay home for the first three days of your recovery.
There are some people who may not be suitable for this procedure if they’re susceptible to scarring, so it’s important to inquire further with a specialist to learn more about whether or not Ellacor is right for you.
