As we grow older, we see fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity in the mid to lower face. Although this is part of aging, there are minimally invasive treatments that can help diminish wrinkles and age-related skin laxity in the mid to lower face. Ellacor treatment is an option that is different from lasers or conventional surgery.

Ellacor uses hollow needles to remove micro-sized areas of excess skin without surgery, thermal energy, or scarring. The treatment is also called fractional tissue extraction or micro excisional skin removal. Very minute, areas of excess skin are removed. Only about 8% of the skin is removed in a single treatment, and as the skin heals, it is noticeably tighter and smoother.

Ellacor is FDA-cleared to treat moderate and deep wrinkles in the mid to lower face. The treatment takes less than 30 minutes, and downtime is only a few days.

Ellacor improves appearance in moderate and severe wrinkles with little pain or extended recovery time. It would be best if you had a series of three treatments about one month apart. Everyone is different, however, and you may need more or fewer treatments. Your provider will discuss your options.

Ellacor FAQs

We will use the appropriate anesthesia before the procedure. Most patients describe the pain as less than two on a scale of 0-10.
Microneedling uses small needles to injure the skin, but the skin is not removed during microneedling. Instead, the tissue is only injured to trigger healing and collagen renewal. Ellacor is the only device that removes skin on the microscale.
Darker skin types may react differently to ellacor treatment than lighter skin types. Before undergoing ellacor, consult with your provider. More studies are needed to evaluate the proper protocols for treating darker skin types.
You can see some improvement as the skin heals in a few weeks, but it might take several months to see the final results.
