With Less Compromise.

Learn more

We believe you are only as old as you feel.
But as we age, our skin may tell a different story.

When it comes to skin revitalization procedures, we also know that you want better results, without the excessive pain and extended recovery time that may be associated with more invasive surgeries or procedures. That is why we developed the ellacor™ System with Micro-Coring™ Technology – a first-of-its-kind device for the treatment of wrinkles that provides natural-looking results with minimal downtime.1,2 Let the ellacor™ System help reveal your inner youth. 

How it Works.

The ellacor™ System uses hollow needles to remove micro-cores of skin, resulting in an improved appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles in the mid to lower face without the evidence of scarring.1,3

Frequently Asked Questions

We're Here to Answer Your Questions.

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.4

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.1,2
