The Ellacor system is a new development in the cosmetics industry that addresses various cosmetic issues using its micro-coring technology. The device utilizes hollowed-out needles to remove thousands of skin cells, stimulating the body’s natural regenerative processes. This FDA-approved technology can help patients achieve a more youthful appearance with practically no signs of scarring on the skin.


What is Ellacor?

What sets apart Ellacor from other minimally-invasive treatments in Houston is its micro-coring technology. This specialized approach is able to extract thousands of microscopic skin fragments in a matter of minutes (10 - 15, on average). After undergoing the treatment, patients typically find it takes a few days for the skin to fully heal and reveal the results. By the 2 to 3-month mark, there is a noticeable drop in skin laxity and fine lines. As the needles used in the procedure are incredibly small, patients walk away with all of their benefits and practically no scarring.

What issues can Ellacor treat?

Ellacor micro-coring technology is a great option for patients who are looking to improve the quality of their skin but are not ready for a surgical procedure. Its patented stainless steel 22-gauge micro-needles are able to reverse mild to moderate skin laxity and sagging in areas such as the jawline, cheeks, jowls, and chin. As a result, patients walk away with supple, radiant, and more elastic skin.

What makes Ellacor so popular among patients in Houston is that it leaves behind little-to-no visible scars. What’s more, patients can see a major difference in their skin after just a few treatments. There is no lengthy downtime or recovery period.

What does the Ellacor procedure entail?

While Ellacor is a non-surgical procedure, patients will be given an anesthetic to ensure that they are comfortable throughout the duration of the treatment. The Ellacor handpiece is then applied to the patient’s skin, and the tiny needles punch out minuscule pieces of skin that are invisible to the naked eye. The device then suctions out all of the removed skin particles. Ellacor has been proven to be a safe and effective method for improving the condition of one’s skin.

Ellacor treatment in The Woodlands, TX is fantastic for patients who are looking to reduce signs of aging, such as fine lines and skin laxity, but are not ready for more involved procedures such as surgery.

Most patients feel able to get back to work and their daily routines after just a few days of rest. That said, patients should remember that residual bruising can last for up to ten days.
