What is Ellacor?

Ellacor by Cytrellis is a new micro coring technology to reverse signs of aging by tightening the skin of chin, cheeks, and jowls. The Ellacor system is designed specifically to treat wrinkles and skin laxity without the use of thermal energy or invasive procedures. Patients who undergo the treatment benefit from minimal healing time in comparison to similar energy based treatments. Ellacor is the perfect treatment to achieve youthful, rejuvenated skin with natural, long lasting results.

Benefits of Ellacor

Ellacor is the first of its kind in the world of treating wrinkles and skin laxity because it uses no heat, energy, or radiofrequency to create thermal injury to the skin. Instead, Ellacor imitates tiny punch biopsies which can remove up to 8% of the skin’s surface area. The idea is similar to a facelift because by creating these cores, the skin is able to tighten as it heals over the next couple days. The results are comparable to that of ablative laser treatments, without the damage or risks.

Cost and Pricing 

Ellacor treatments typically fall within the $1,500-$3,000 range per treatment, with the average nearing $2,500. Patients will typically need 3-4 treatments to see the most optimal results. 

How the Procedure Works

Micro coring is a treatment in which tiny punches of the skin are removed to allow for skin contraction and lifting. Ellacor employs hollow needles sized to remove micro cores of dermal and epidermal tissue, further customizable to suit the skin and severity of the patient’s concerns. The skin is then suctioned through the needle and the body’s natural healing response is triggered to close up the cores. 

Patients receive an anesthetic injection before treatment, so the process is virtually painless. The procedure is quick and simple. After the procedure, it is important that patients protect their skin as the healing process begins. In two to three months patients can see significant improvements in the smoothening of fine lines and wrinkles, even after just one session!

Treatment Areas

Ellacor is typically employed for facial rejuvenation, specifically from the mid to lower face. 

Am I a Good Candidate?

Ellacor is a great option for patients over 20 looking to correct moderate to severe wrinkles. The procedure provides very natural lifting and tightening results, so may not be the best option for those looking for dramatic change in their appearance. Patients who are pregnant or nursing, have received dermal filler treatments within the past 6 months, or have facial implants in the treatment are not great candidates for Ellacor.

Similar and Related Procedures 

Treatments that can provide similar results include those of radiofrequency devices on the skin. These include J-Plasma (Renuvion) and Profound RF. 

As stated above, Ellacor is a procedure that will provide natural looking results as opposed to drastic restructuring of the face. If one is looking for the latter to address loose sagging skin, or perhaps volume loss associated with aging, they may benefit from the different treatments that comprise a nonsurgical facelift such as MINT PDO threading, facial filler, or even laser resurfacing.

Side Effects and Risks 

There may be some bleeding, redness, swelling or bruising for up to a week post-treatment, but all of these subside as the results become more apparent. Ellacor also has the potential to cause hyperpigmentation, especially in patients with darker skin tones. There is also the potential for imperfect healing of the skin, which can have the skin looking rough and textured in the aftermath of the procedure.
