A Fresh Approach to Reversing the Signs of Aging
As one gets older, wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin eventually become noticeable, often due to a combination of genetics, sun exposure, and lifestyle habits.
Ellacor is a brand new way to think about skin tightening. A non-surgical, minimally invasive device that uses tiny needles (6,000 to 12,000) that removes mico-cores of skin.
Cleared by the FDA to improve the appearance of moderate to severe skin laxity without any appearance of scarring in the mid to lower face, this skin restoration treatment drives the body's healing process to begin closing the micro-cores, effectively reducing skin sagging and wrinkles in the area that was treated.
What can Ellacor be used for?
The initial applications of Ellacor have primarily focused on the lower region of the face, specifically targeting the mouth, jawline, and cheek areas. However, plastic surgeons are now using this revolutionary technology in other regions of the face and the body, such as the neck and submental area. And the possibility of using Ellacor for brow and lip lifting is thrilling. Additionally, Ellacor can be used as a highly effective tool for treating skin laxity anywhere in the body, such as the thighs, arms, and knees.
Many patients looking for facial and body rejuvenation want optimal results but with the shortest possible recovery period. The great advantage of Ellacor is that, unlike other devices that are energy-based (such as radiofrequency, ultrasound, or laser treatments), the recovery time is usually shorter and more comfortable.
Marotta MedSpa, located in Long Island, NY, offers the Ellacor treatment, compatible with almost all skin types including Fitzpatrick skin types I-IV. This makes it one of the most versatile and inclusive options for facial rejuvenation available. In addition, unlike laser treatments, which rely on thermal energy, Ellacor does not pose a risk of damaging the skin with heat and has low risk of causing discoloration.
This list outlines the features and benefits of a treatment, likely a cosmetic procedure:
Long Island Ellacor patients should anticipate a treatment time of a maximum of 30 minutes for the lower face and upper neck. Treatment times vary by area treated.
At Marotta MedSpa, the topical and local anesthetic will be administered to minimize any discomfort during the procedure. The Ellacor hand-held applicator is used to treat the skin in sections, moving gently across the skin. Using hollow micro-needles that create a grid pattern on the skin, the device removes micro-core skin fragments to tighten the skin and reduce wrinkles.
With Ellacor Long Island patients find the recovery time is quick. Most patients can resume their daily activities within three days, although it may take a full week for the skin to heal completely. Mild swelling, pinpoint bleeding, and redness can be expected, while bruising may occur occasionally.
Visible results from Ellacor can be seen in a few weeks, with the full effects expected to be apparent within three to six months. A study showed a 90% improvement for patients with moderate to severe wrinkles over the course of six months treatment. In this study, 86% of participating patients felt "satisfied" or "extremely satisfied" as a result of the Ellacor treatment.
For optimal outcomes, we recommend a series of two to three sessions for most patients. Following the Ellacor procedure, the dermal tissues rapidly reposition themselves to close the microchannels formed during treatment. As the tissues naturally reform, the skin begins to exhibit a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance with a smoother texture and firmer feel. The wrinkles and fine lines in the treated area become less visible and seamlessly blend in with the surrounding skin.
