Ellacor Procedure BradentonAre you interested in facial rejuvenation procedures without surgery? Ellacor® is an efficient treatment for moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles. It has the ability to remove a large amount of damaged skin without the risk of scarring. Additionally, the treatments have resulted in considerable wrinkle reduction in clinical trials.

What is Ellacor®?

Ellacor® is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat wrinkles that are moderate to severe. This FDA-cleared procedure is effective in restoring the skin and providing natural-looking results. The treatment can be successfully completed in 30 minutes or less, and results are visible after the first session. The procedure targets the mid- to lower face to eliminate deep lines and wrinkles.

How does Ellacor® work?

Ellacor BradentonThe procedure uses a fractional tissue extraction process called Micro-Coring to non-surgically remove excess tissue in the treatment area. Since this treatment is non-surgical, it shrinks, tightens, and smooths the skin without affecting facial muscles. Instead, the device uses hollow needles to create micro cores, treating the procedure area without heat or energy, which eliminates the risk of thermal injury and leaves no evidence of scarring. The Micro-Coring process removes thousands of microcores of skin, which activates the body’s natural healing mechanism and, in turn, results in increased production of collagen and improved skin elasticity. The process is fully customizable, and you and your doctor will adjust the percentage of skin removal and treatment areas based on your desired results.


Ellacor® is a great minimally invasive choice for those who want to reduce the signs of aging without having to undergo surgery. For those considering this treatment, here is what you can expect:
  • Helps reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Eliminates excess and sagging skin
  • No scarring or surgical incisions
  • Reduced jowls
  • Improves the appearance of marionette lines
  • Short recovery time
  • The procedure can be completed in less than 30 minutes
  • Minimal risk of skin damage
  • No risk of thermal damage
In short, this procedure appeals to those seeking a non-surgical yet effective skin rejuvenation treatment.


The recovery process after Ellacor® can take three to four days. Swelling and some bruising are common after treatment. During this time, patients also notice a tightening of the skin as collagen production increases. This results in a firmer and plumper appearance. While results are noticeable after one treatment, subsequent sessions can help further improve skin quality. Your doctor will provide a treatment plan, including the number of sessions that will help you achieve your skin goals.
