Ellacor® in Adrian, MI

What Is Ellacor?

A revolutionary aesthetic treatment, Ellacor uses micro-coring™ technology to tighten the skin and minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. As you begin to age or experience changes in your physique (such as with weight loss), you may notice loose, droopy skin as a result of lost volume. While some other skin tightening treatments may involve surgery or thermal energy, the Ellacor system utilizes hollow needles to extract "micro-cores" of excess skin, triggering the body's collagen and elastin production at the same time for a naturally firmer, smoother result. Desjarlais Dermatology & Aesthetic Center is proud to offer Ellacor as a gentle anti-aging solution for Adrian, MI patients who want firmer, younger-looking skin without the risk of scarring. To learn more about this groundbreaking procedure, reach out to our practice to schedule your Ellacor consultation with our expert team.

How Does Ellacor Work?

Ellacor treatments at our Adrian, MI practice are usually completed in less than 30 minutes per session so it’s easy to fit these appointments into your day. During your appointment, our team will lead you to one of our comfortable treatment rooms where you lie back as we prepare your skin for the procedure. We also will administer local anesthesia to reduce any sensation from the treatment. Ellacor employs a series of small, hollow needles to extract tiny "cores" of excess skin, which triggers the body's natural healing process and improves the skin's texture, tone, and tightness over time. The needles can be adjusted to reach different depths into the skin, allowing you to customize your treatment for optimal results.

After your session, you may experience some temporary redness or sensitivity, but there should be no scarring. For the best results, we recommend at least three Ellacor treatments spaced 30 days apart at Desjarlais Dermatology & Aesthetic Center.

Prompt, professional, personable people. Removal of a small cyst was even less painful than the doctor claimed it would be. Definitely my go-to dermatologist from now on!

I always feel great leaving this office. From the front desk, to the medical assistants every employee is kind. Dr. Desjarlais is attentive to my concerns each time and thoughtful with his responses. He doesn’t rush conversations and has great bedside manner. Couldn’t recommend this practice any more.

Am I A Good Candidate for Ellacor?

Ellacor at Desjarlais Dermatology & Aesthetic Center offers a unique approach to skin rejuvenation. Ideal candidates for this treatment are individuals seeking to address moderate signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles. It's particularly suited for those desiring a more natural method of enhancement without the use of fillers or toxins. Patients with good skin elasticity and realistic expectations about the outcomes often experience the best results. It's important for candidates to have a clear understanding of the procedure and to be in good overall health. This treatment may not be suitable for individuals with certain skin conditions or those seeking dramatic alterations. Ellacor provides a refined and subtle approach to revitalizing the skin's appearance, making it a choice option for natural-looking rejuvenation.

What makes Ellacor different from other skin revitalization devices?

Ellacor stands out from other skin revitalization methods by removing micro-portions of excess skin for wrinkle improvement. In contrast, many other devices use heat from lasers, radiofrequency, or ultrasound energy to cause intentional thermal injury to the skin. Ellacor's method ensures an effective treatment without thermal damage.

How many Ellacor procedures will I need?

The number of Ellacor procedures varies for each patient. It's best to consult with your physician to determine a personalized treatment plan. Typically, patients undergo a series of three procedures, spaced about 30 days apart, to achieve optimal results.

Is the Ellacor procedure painful?

Patients receive local anesthesia before the Ellacor procedure to minimize discomfort. Most patients report very low pain levels during the treatment, usually scoring less than 2 on a 0-10 pain scale. This makes Ellacor a comfortable option for skin revitalization.
