What is Ellacor?

Ellacor is the first FDA-cleared method to remove excess skin on the microscale without thermal energy or invasive surgery. Developed by Dr. Rox Anderson, this innovative skin rejuvenation procedure utilizes micro-coring or needle precision to achieve cosmetic goals. This system employs a series of hollow needles, smaller than 0.5 mm in size, through the dermal and epidermal layers of the skin. These tiny needles excise segments of excess or loose skin without the risk of scarring. Ellacor produces clean cuts and removes skin fragments, unlike microneedling which causes skin injury.

Who are the best candidates for Ellacor?

Hundreds of men and women across the country have elected to have this life-changing procedure to rejuvenate their appearance. However, everyone is not suitable for this treatment. For those in Los Gatos or near the San Jose area, CA Aesthetics recommends this procedure for those potential candidates who meet the following criteria:

  • Those with Fitzpatrick skin types I-IV. To avoid hyperpigmentation or other skin issues, extra precautions should be taken for patients with tanned or very dark skin.
  • Generally in their 40s or 50s, as these patients are commonly experiencing mild to moderate changes to their skin laxity
  • Overall good physical health and no underlying health conditions that could affect healing

What are the benefits of Ellacor?

Several methods address skin-tightening and Ellacor excels as a non-invasive approach that rejuvenates and smooths out the skin which improves the overall appearance. Explore the following benefits of Ellacor Treatment:

  • Effectively reduces atrophic wrinkles and dynamic expression lines to fight various signs of aging
  • Precise procedure, Ellacor treats specific tissue without affecting the surrounding areas
  • Minimal treatments, as most patients report visible results after 2-3 sessions

What’s the first step?

Are you ready to take action against feeling self-conscious about sagging and loose skin, but don’t want to risk major surgery or scars? Choose Dr. Li and CA Aesthetics to take care of you, and contact the office to schedule your private consultation. Dr. Li will discuss your options after a thorough assessment, which will include evaluating your skin to determine the effectiveness of Ellacor.

What to expect on the day of Ellacor treatment

For those patients in the San Jose area, here’s what you can expect on the day of your Ellacor treatment at CA Aesthetics. You’ll be comfortably positioned during the procedure. Your medical professional will use the Ellacor system with Micro-Coring® technology. These micro-cores made of 0.5mm in diameter hollow needles remove excess or loose skin, promoting overall skin tightening. While the treatment is not completely pain-free, it is fairly manageable. Anesthesia, procedure experience, and technique will impact each patient’s pain differently.

Ellacor Recovery

Recovery from an Ellacor procedure ranges from a couple of days to several weeks, which can vary by patient and treatment setting. Since every patient heals at different rates, patient results and experience may vary. There can be swelling and redness at the treatment site, but those effects will subside within a few days. It is advised to cover and protect the treated area with an occlusive dressing like petroleum jelly to accelerate healing. Limit the use of harsh products for at least 1 week following the treatment.
