What is ellacor™?
Developed alongside leading physicians in the aesthetics industry and from the makers of Coolsculpting and Fractional laser, the ellacor™ System’s first-in-class technology removes micro-cores of dermal and epidermal tissue for the treatment of moderate to severe wrinkles in the mid and lower face without surgery or the use of thermal energy.
Faces+ is one of the first of only 24 clinics in the world to offer this new technology.
How Does it Work?
The breakthrough ellacor™ System uses proprietary hollow needles to precisely remove micro-cores of excess skin. After the skin is removed, the body’s natural healing response goes into effect as the skin quickly realigns to close the cores. This results in an improvement in the appearance of wrinkles without the evidence of scarring,1,1 and less downtime than many energy-based procedures.
Let the ellacor™ System help reveal your inner youth.
Revealing Inner Youth
See real patients who have experienced the ellacor™ difference.
I loved my ellacor™ results. I was looking to get a little something more from a treatment, but wasn’t ready for surgery and ellacor™ delivered exactly what I had in mind.
I noticed a change in my skin after just one treatment and after my third session I felt like my ksin was just so refreshed and brought back to life.
Ellacor™ really gave me a newfound confidence in myself.Andrea, ellacor™ patient
The Procedure You Have Been Looking For
If you want visible, natural-looking results without the excessive downtime and potential scarring1,3 that can come with more invasive treatments, the ellacor™ System may be your answer.
How is the ellacor™ System different from other skin revitalization devices?
Ellacor™ removes micro-portions of excess skin to achieve an improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, whereas many other skin revitalization devices use heat generated by laser, radiofrequency and ultrasound energy to induce intentional thermal injury to the skin.
How many treatments will I need?
As every patient has different needs, we recommend you speak with your provider to determine the treatment plan that is right for you.
How long is a typical treatment?
An ellacor™ treatment typically takes about 30 minutes or less.
Is the treatment painful?
Your physician will provide you with appropriate anesthesia prior to the procedure to make you more comfortable. Most patients in our clinical trial reported pain during the procedure as less than 2 on a 0-10 scale.1
Is the recovery time long?
There is minimal recovery time following the ellacor™ procedure. Patients return to their normal activities on average three days following the treatment.1
Indication for Use
The ellacor™ System with Micro-Coring™ Technology is indicated for use by medical professionals for the treatment of moderate to severe wrinkles in the mid to lower face in adults aged 22 years or older with Fitzpatrick skin types I-IV. As with any medical procedure, there are risks, side effects and contraindications that can be associated with the ellacor™ treatment.
