Ellacor® Micro-Coring®

Ellacor Microcoring represents a breakthrough in non-invasive skin rejuvenation. By utilizing advanced micro-coring technology, Ellacor improves skin laxity, stimulates collagen production, diminishes fine lines and moderate to severe wrinkles, and improves overall skin tone and texture. Unlike traditional treatments, Ellacor Micro-coring delivers remarkable results without surgery or scarring.1

What is Ellacor Micro-Coring?

The Ellacor System is engineered to meticulously remove full-thickness micro-cores of both dermal and epidermal tissue, tailored to enhance the appearance of aging skin. With adjustable treatment depths and customizable skin removal percentage settings, this innovative technology offers precise customization to suit individual needs. The process involves the removal of between 5,000 and 12,000 tiny micro-cores of skin during treatment, equivalent to approximately 5 to 8 percent of the treated area. Remarkably, this procedure yields significant improvements in wrinkles and sagging skin without leaving perceptible scars, thanks to the minute width of the tissue removals, which are less than 500 micrometers.2

Post Treatment Tips:

After your Ellacor session, you may experience some redness and swelling that typically dissipates within several days. Noticeable improvements are usually visible within three weeks post-treatment, with continued enhancement over the following three months. To optimize results, it’s important to avoid any activities that could introduce heat or bacteria, such as hot showers, intense workouts, or prolonged sun exposure for 72 hours, and moisturize the treated area. You can resume your regular skincare routine after one week, ensuring a seamless transition back to your daily regimen.

Ellacor Micro-Coring FAQ

  • How long does the Ellacor procedure take? The procedure typically lasts around one hour. Following approximately 30 minutes of topical numbing, your provider administers lidocaine injections before initiating the Ellacor treatment on the targeted area. The device is then used to stamp the needles across the lower face over approximately 30 minutes. Finally, your provider will apply exosomes to the treated area and a cooling mask to complete the session.
  • How many Ellacor treatments will I need? For optimal results, most patients typically undergo a series of three procedures, each spaced approximately 30 days apart with annual maintenance sessions to help maintain desired goals.
  • Where will my Ellacor Micro-Coring procedure take place? Your Ellacor treatment will be conducted within one of Bucky Body Center’s premier aesthetic treatment rooms.
  • Does the Ellacor Micro-Coring procedure hurt? Your Bucky Body Center provider will administer a topical anesthetic before your Ellacor session, ensuring your comfort throughout the procedure.
  • Are there risks associated with Ellacor Micro-Coring? As with any cosmetic procedure, Ellacor does have some side effects including pulling/tightness of the skin, swelling, redness, bruising, dryness, burning, roughness, crusting, skin peeling, tenderness, numbness, tingling, bleeding, or circular marks on skin. More rare and serious risks include hyper/hypopigmentation, itching, infection, hematoma, skin irregularities, and uneven appearance of the treated regions.
