What Is Ellacor?

Ellacor is a cosmetic treatment that uses a special device and micro-coring technology to reduce facial wrinkles and increase the elasticity of loose or sagging skin. The ellacor device and its innovative technology were created by the medical technology company Cytrellis.

How Does Ellacor Work?

Ellacor treatment utilizes a process of fractional tissue extraction called micro-coring to revitalize the skin and significantly reduce signs of aging. The ellacor device uses thin, hollow needles to remove micro-cores of excess or loose skin during this process. This removes sagging skin from the face, tightening and smoothing the remaining skin.

Benefits of Ellacor

For anyone looking to rejuvenate their facial skin, ellacor treatment can offer some or all of the following benefits:

Reduced facial wrinkles, lines, creases, and folds

  • Tighter, smoother skin

  • Improved self-confidence
  • Natural-looking results
  • Minimally invasive procedure

What Should I Expect During the Procedure?

If you think Ellacor might be right for you, your first step should be to schedule a quick consultation with one of our providers at Sanctuary Plastic Surgery. They will discuss the treatment with you and ask about your hopes for the procedure. If you decide to move forward, Dr. Pozner or Dr. Cook will work with you to create a treatment plan that will be effective for achieving your goals.

Ellacor treatment is administered on an outpatient basis. First, your provider will inject a local anesthetic to numb your facial or body skin for the procedure. Next, they will carefully place the Ellacor device on your skin to remove micro-cores in an exact pattern. Once the hollow needles have had a chance to remove your excess skin, the treatment will be finished. Typically, patients recover in 1-2 days and can exercise and resume normal activities the day after their procedure.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?

After your treatment, your provider will give you detailed instructions to ensure that your skin heals properly. Most patients can return to work and their regular routines after between three days and a week.

How Long Will It Take To See Results After Ellacor Treatment?

Most patients start noticing skin elasticity improvements within a few weeks of the treatment. To achieve optimal results, it’s recommended that you undergo two or three ellacor sessions spaced about 30 days apart. The results of ellacor can last for several years if you take proper care of your skin.

Ellacor FAQ

Are there any side effects?

Ellacor is considered to be a very safe procedure, and the most common side effects are very minor. Patients may experience symptoms like swelling, bruising, and tenderness for a few days after the treatment.

Is the treatment painful?

Because your provider will apply a topical anesthetic before the treatment, there shouldn’t be any significant pain.

How is ellacor different from microneedling?

The two treatments are similar, but microneedling only displaces skin tissue whereas ellacor actually removes micro-cores of skin.

Will there be scars?

No. One of the great things about ellacor treatment is that it does not leave behind any scarring.

How long does ellacor treatment take?

Typically, the treatment only takes around 30 minutes to complete.
