How does Ellacor work?

Ellacor Micro-Coring is an advanced technology that can transform your skin’s appearance. The device uses fine hollow needles to create small, evenly-spaced channels in your skin. 

Your skin then heals those microchannels and the skin around them, which results in tighter and firmer skin with no scarring. The procedure takes just 30 minutes in the office at Park City Dermatology. 

When you visit Park City Dermatology for Ellacor treatments, you can expect a pain-free procedure. Your dermatologist administers local anesthesia before your treatment to numb your skin in preparation for the needles. 

What are the skin benefits of Ellacor?

Ellacor Micro-Coring is particularly beneficial for wrinkles and textural irregularities in the mid-to-lower face. Many people develop wrinkles around the mouth and nose because skin naturally loosens over time. In addition, some people tend to lose fat volume beneath the skin as they grow older. 

Ellacor Micro-Coring treatments can improve the appearance of:

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Smile lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Smoker’s lines
  • Jowls

While these features are common, you might not like how they look. Ellacor Micro-Coring is an excellent choice of treatment for them and an alternative to lasers, injectable fillers, or surgery. 

How long does it take for my skin to heal after Ellacor?

Recovery is typically 10 days with mild swelling, redness, and peeling. It may take up to six months to see the complete results of an Ellacor treatment. That is because your skin continues healing long after the procedure. 

Results from Ellacor can last for several years, especially if you take the proper steps to nourish and protect your skin. You can maximize your results by:

  • Avoiding smoking
  • Wearing sunscreen while outside
  • Eating a balanced diet
  • Avoiding excessive sun exposure and tanning beds
  • Using gentle moisturizers and other skin care products
  • Staying hydrated

Your dermatologist at Park City Dermatology can give you additional personalized skin management advice based on your skin type and age.
