The Ellacor treatment is newly FDA approved cutting-edge cosmetic dermatology procedure that helps to reduce skin imperfections such as acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. This minimally invasive treatment uses advanced technology to remove microchannels in the skin. As the body heals, these microchannels close resulting in a reduction and rejuvenation of the treated skin. The microchannels are small enough that the skin heals without evidence of scarring. Unlike lasers or other energy-based devices, no thermal energy is applied to the skin at all, and as such, there is no risk of burn injury and healing is quicker. Ellacor is suitable for most skin types.
In general, the effects of the Ellacor treatment last forever, although you do continue aging.
Many people notice an improvement in skin tone and texture almost immediately after the treatment, with results continuing to improve over the next few months.
However, it’s important to note that the lasting effects of the treatment depend on several factors, including your skincare routine, overall health, and lifestyle choices.
To maintain the results of your Ellacor treatment, it’s crucial to follow a healthy skin care routine that includes cleansing, moisturizing, and protecting the skin from UV damage. In addition, it’s recommended to avoid smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and other lifestyle habits that can negatively impact skin health.
Ellacor is a minimally invasive procedure that helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. Before undergoing this procedure, it’s important to know what to expect both before and after the treatment.
Before the Procedure:
• Consultation. A consultation with Dr. Li is crucial before undergoing Ellacor treatment. Dr. Li will evaluate your skin and discuss with you your candidacy and the possible benefits and risks of the procedure.
• Preparation. Before the procedure, it’s important to avoid blood thinners such as alcohol, aspirin, and certain medications so that there is minimal swelling and bleeding.
• Procedure. Ellacor usually takes under 30 minutes to complete. Treatment intensity can vary based on your specific needs and quality of the tissues. Up to 8% of your skin can be removed without evidence of scarring.
After the Procedure:
• Recovery. Following the treatment, you may experience some mild swelling, redness, and discomfort for a few days. It’s perfectly normal, and these symptoms generally subside within 48 hours. After about 7 days, your skin will start to heal, and you’ll be able to see a visible reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
• Results. Results from Ellacor are generally visible within a week or two after the procedure. The skin will be smoother and firmer, with fewer wrinkles and fine lines visible. Results will continue to improve over the next few months.
• Care and maintenance. To maintain the results, it’s essential to follow a simple skincare routine, including keeping the skin well-hydrated, avoiding prolonged exposure to the sun, and avoiding aggressive exfoliation.
In general, every session of Ellacor produces benefit, and when multiple sessions are performed, the amount of skin removed without scarring can be significant. Some people see visible improvements after a single treatment session, while others may require additional sessions to achieve the desired results.
