As we age, our bodies begin to change—wrinkles appear in places we never thought possible, and skin begins to sag where it was once firm and taut. The results of aging aren’t avoidable, but they are preventable. With the beauty industry continuously evolving, new technologies are making it easier for medspas and dermatology offices to fight against unwanted wrinkles and age-related skin conditions.
Introducing Ellacor®, a revolutionary device created by Cytrellis. This minimally invasive treatment diminishes wrinkles and skin laxity with a 91% success rate. Skin Wellness is proud to offer this new service at our Birmingham, AL, office to all our qualifying patients. Take a more in-depth look at what Ellacor can do for you and your skin.
What is Ellacor?
Advanced signs of facial aging can be difficult to treat effectively without surgery. But thanks to Ellacor, dermatologists can rejuvenate the skin without patients undergoing invasive procedures. Ellacor differs from other skin tightening treatments, as it’s the first of its kind that does not rely on tightening existing skin. Instead, this innovative technology removes micro-portions of excess skin to “delete” sagging areas.
How Does Ellacor Work?
Ellacor uses a fractional tissue extraction process called micro-coring to deliver smoother, tighter, younger-looking skin to the mid and lower face. Using hollow needles, the Ellacor device moves across the treatment area, removing micro-cores of skin as it goes. As the micro-holes are created, your body’s natural healing response activates, creating collagen and elastin (naturally occurring proteins in the body) at a much quicker rate. These proteins work together to close the cores and create a natural-looking result.
Ellacor needles are less than 0.5mm in length, long enough to create lasting results but short enough to avoid scarring. Additionally, there is absolutely no heat involved in this skin-tightening procedure, meaning there isn’t a risk of unintended thermal injury. A 10mm square area can be treated in less than three seconds, so the entire process is usually completed within 30 minutes.
With all the advantages of traditional skin tightening methods, but none of the drawbacks or risks, Ellacor offers a variety of benefits to qualifying patients, including:
- No incisions or scarring
- Removes excess, sagging skin
- Diminishes the appearance of wrinkles
- Reduces the appearance of jowls
- Provides natural-looking results
- No general anesthesia required
Individuals who undergo an Ellacor procedure at Skin Wellness have experienced improved skin laxity within several weeks of treatment and felt comfortable returning to work after just three days. If you’re considering Ellacor for your wrinkle-related skin concerns, our dermatologists recommend two to three sessions for optimal results.
