Ellacor® Skin Tightening with Micro-Coring™
Skin tightening is one of the most commonly requested aesthetics services. No one is immune to some degree of stretched, loose skin on their face and body, but some people are especially vulnerable to this issue. This is why at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta, we offer a variety of outstanding skin tightening treatments, including the new cutting edge technology Ellacor®.
Ellacor® is an advanced, FDA-cleared skin tightening treatment unlike any other that uses signature Micro-Coring™ Technology to effectively tighten the skin and reduce wrinkles in the lower portion of the face. This innovative, minimally invasive treatment is unique in its ability to actually remove micro-portions of excess or lax skin from the face to help provide a refreshed and younger-looking appearance. Ellacor® can pair well with other cosmetic treatments including cosmetic laser treatments. Ellacor® shows outstanding results, with 90% of patients showing aesthetic improvement and 86% satisfaction rate with patients.
Ellacor® Skin Tightening treatments are performed using a specialized handheld device with hollow miniature needles attached. When applied to the skin, these needles are able to precisely remove micro-cores of excess or loose skin in the treatment area without the use of any heat or energy. Once this process is complete, the body’s natural healing process begins, closing the cores from the removed micro-cores of skin, which effectively tightens and smooths the skin’s outermost layers.
Treatment sessions using Ellacor® can typically be completed in less than 30 minutes. This is a very safe treatment that will require only minimal downtime for post-treatment recovery. There is virtually no risk of post-treatment scarring or other side effects associated with Ellacor® treatments.
How many Ellacor® Skin Tightening treatments will I need to achieve the results that I desire?
This will depend on each patient and the degree of skin tightening that they require. However, the majority of patients using Ellacor® undergo a series of up to three treatments, spaced roughly 30 days apart to achieve the best-possible results.
Will I experience any pain during my Ellacor® Skin Tightening treatment?
While not substantial, there is potential for some minor discomfort during treatment. Additionally, some temporary post-treatment soreness may occur. The treatment is done with both topical and local anesthesia. With this combination, discomfort during the procedure is minimal. Additionally, some post treatment soreness may occur.
