Are you bothered by laxity in your mid to lower face, but are not interested in a surgical treatment? If so, we are excited to introduce you to Ellacor! This innovative treatment uses micro-coring technology to stimulate collagen production to rejuvenate your skin, without leaving scarring. Ellacor and RF microneedling are often compared when discussing non-surgical treatments for skin rejuvenation, but it’s important to understand the key distinctions between these two treatments.  

What is Ellacor?

Ellacor is a new non-surgical solution for treating mid-to-lower face wrinkles and excess skin. As the first and only FDA-cleared procedure to non-surgically remove excess skin, both men and women alike are seeking out this advanced technology. Ellacor uses hollow needles to remove mico-cores of skin, without leaving evidence of scarring. After these cores of skin are removed, the body’s natural healing process is triggered, resulting in an improved skin appearance. This treatment is ideal for treating mild jowling, lip lines, and laxity along the jawline.  

How is Ellacor Different than RF Microneedling?

Both Ellacor and RF microneedling employ similar underlying technology to achieve more youthful-looking skin. However, there are some differences as well. Ellacor removes micro-portions of excess skin to stimulate collagen production and improve the appearance of wrinkles and skin laxity. RF energy is not used in this treatment. Radiofrequency (RF) microneedling utilizes many ultrafine needles to create micro-wounds in the skin. Combined with RF waves which produce thermal energy, the body’s repair response is stimulated to produce collagen. Overall, Ellacor removes micro-cores of skin, while RF microneedling creates micro-wounds to the skin. Ellacor results tend to be more noticeable, as skin is actually removed on the microscale, stimulating a greater healing response.

Ellacor Results

Following Ellacor treatment, patients may experience mild swelling, redness, and bruising, which will resolve with time. We will provide you with an ointment to quicken the healing process. Recovery time may range from a few days to weeks and can vary depending on each individual patient and their treatment setting. Most patients will need to undergo a series of 3 procedures spaced 30 days apart for optimal results. Results will continue to become noticeable over the next 3-6 months, as collagen continues to be stimulated.
