How Does Ellacor™ Work?

The ellacor™ System uses hollow needles to remove excess skin on the microscale. After the skin is removed, the body’s natural healing response goes into effect as the skin quickly realigns to close the cores.

Ellacor™ removes micro-portions of excess skin to achieve an improvement in the appearance of wrinkles without the evidence of scarring and faster healing than many energy-based procedures that use heat generated by laser, radiofrequency and ultrasound energy to induce intentional thermal injury to the skin.
