Ellacor represents a significant advance in bringing us one step closer to a non-surgical facelift by providing dermatological treatments through its sophisticated micro-needling system. This system utilizes state-of-the-art, precisely engineered hollow needles, each meticulously designed to have an internal diameter of less than 0.5mm. The small diameter is crucial as it falls below the threshold at which scarring is likely to occur, thereby enhancing the safety profile of the procedure and minimizing any potential for visible scarring.

The engineering behind these needles ensures that they are capable of removing precise micro-cores of skin with minimal invasion, making the process notably less traumatic for the skin compared to traditional resurfacing methods. This level of precision not only aids in the effective reduction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles but also improves the overall texture and firmness of the skin by stimulating the natural healing process.

Benefits of Ellacor

Quick and Efficient

One of the standout benefits of the Ellacor system is its remarkable efficiency. The technology is designed to treat a 10mm square area in less than three seconds, enabling an entire facial treatment to be completed typically in under 30 minutes (additional time is needed for preparation & numbing). This rapid treatment capability makes Ellacor an exceptional choice for individuals with fast-paced lifestyles who are seeking effective aesthetic improvements without the need for lengthy procedures or significant downtime.

Non-Thermal Procedure

Ellacor’s non-thermal approach is a significant benefit, distinguishing it from many other skin revitalization techniques that rely on heat. By avoiding the use of lasers, radio frequency, or ultrasound energy, Ellacor eliminates the risk of thermal injury, such as burns or changes in pigmentation, which can be of particular concern for those with darker skin tones or sensitive skin.

This non-thermal feature is especially beneficial as it allows for a more controlled and focused treatment that targets only the intended areas without affecting the surrounding skin. The absence of heat not only ensures a safer procedure but also contributes to the overall comfort of the patient during the treatment. This method reduces the likelihood of post-procedure complications, promoting a smoother recovery and leading to more consistent outcomes across diverse skin types.

By providing a quick, efficient, and heat-free treatment, Ellacor meets the needs of modern patients who value safety, speed, and efficacy in cosmetic procedures. These features make Ellacor an appealing option for those seeking to improve their skin’s appearance with minimal risk and disruption to their daily lives.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ellacor utilizes hollow needles to meticulously remove micro-cores of skin, which enhances the skin’s appearance by reducing wrinkles. This unique approach greatly reduces the risk of scarring.

Unlike many skin revitalization technologies that use laser, radio frequency, or ultrasound energy to create controlled thermal injuries, Ellacor directly removes small portions of excess skin. This mechanical method avoids the potential side effects associated with thermal energy.

The number of procedures varies based on individual skin conditions and goals. Typically, patients may undergo a series of two to three procedures, each spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. It’s essential to consult with our experienced dermatologists to tailor a treatment plan that suits your needs.

A typical Ellacor procedure can be completed in about 60-90 minutes or less, making it a convenient option even for those individuals with tight schedules.

The treatment area must be anesthetized with topical numbing injections & medication of an anesthetic such as lidocaine with epinephrine. This process can be uncomfortable, but the treatment itself is typically comfortable.

“Downtime” can vary but generally ranges from a few days to a few weeks, depending on the patient and treatment parameters. For women, makeup can typically be resumed in 3-5 days (when the cores have healed). Bruising, redness, a grid pattern, or hyperpigmentation can persist for weeks or even a few months.

As each individual’s healing process differs, discussing expected recovery timelines with your Ellacor provider is advisable.

No, the Ellacor system functions without the use of thermal energy, instead relying on the precise mechanical removal of skin at the microscale.

While microneedling involves using fine needles to create tiny punctures (without removing skin), Ellacor needles are hollow and actually remove small cores of skin, which can lead to more significant improvements in skin structure and appearance.

Ellacor treatments for darker skin types (V and VI) require specific protocols, which are currently under clinical study. It’s crucial to consult with our dermatology team who can advise based on the latest research and guidelines.

Preparation instructions for Ellacor will be provided during your consultation with your dermatologist, ensuring you are fully prepared for the treatment session.

The best way to determine if Ellacor is suitable for you is to schedule a consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists who offer the treatment. They can provide personalized advice based on your skin condition and aesthetic goals.
