Ellacor® Q & A

What is Ellacor?

Ellacor is a one-of-a-kind treatment that can help improve moderate to severe wrinkles and skin laxity using FDA-approved, Micro-coring™ technology. The innovative treatment uses thin, hollow needles to remove excess skin on the microscale. Many people compare it to a punch biopsy — which is a procedure that removes a small core of skin using a hollow scalpel. 

Once the skin is removed, it triggers your body’s natural process to send healing compounds to the area. This process helps “close” the cores and remodel the skin, which leads to improved texture. 

The anti-aging treatment can give patients a facelift without surgery, firming and tightening skin to promote a youthful appearance. 

What are the benefits of Ellacor treatment?

Ellacor treatment removes micro-cores of skin from your epidermis and dermis (outermost and middle layer of skin) to treat wrinkles in the mid and lower face without the need for cosmetic surgery. 

If you’re looking for a way to rejuvenate your look without evidence of scarring, Ellacor may be right for you. 

Is treatment with Ellacor painful?

Arthur K Balin, MD, PhD, PC, ensures your comfort prior to Ellacor treatment. He may apply a numbing cream to the treatment area to prevent any discomfort. Many patients don’t find Ellacor treatment painful and tolerate the process quite well. 

How many Ellacor treatments will I need?

Ellacor treatments take less than 30 minutes each and don’t require extensive downtime on your part. The specific number of treatments you’ll need depend on your individual needs and treatment goals. Patients may see the best results with three sessions spaced out 30 days apart*. 

How long does recovery take with Ellacor?

While some people may take up to three days to fully return to their social activities with confidence, others may feel more comfortable going out sooner than three days*. Arthur K Balin, MD, PhD, PC, can explain the process to you and let you know what to expect in terms of the healing period. 

Following Ellacor treatments, you may have temporary redness or swelling in the treatment area, but these effects will fade within a few days.
