How does ellacor work?
Ellacor uses hollow needles to remove micro-cores of skin, resulting in an improved appearance of wrinkles without evidence of scarring.
How is ellacor different from microneedling?
Microneedling uses small needles to injure the tissue, but skin is not removed during this procedure – the tissue is temporarily displaced. Ellacor is the first device to actually remove skin on the microscale.
How is ellacor different from other skin revitalization devices?
Ellacor removes micro-portions of excess skin to achieve an improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, whereas many other skin revitalization devices use heat generated by laser, radio frequency and ultrasound energy to induce intentional thermal injury to the skin.
