What is Ellacor?

Ellacor Micro-Coring is a non-invasive skincare treatment that uses a specialized handheld device to exfoliate the outer layer of dead skin cells, revealing a smoother, brighter, and more youthful-looking complexion. The device contains multiple tiny needles that gently puncture the skin's surface, initiating micro-channels that allow for the eradication of dead skin cells and the delivery of active ingredients.

Ellacor Micro-Coring is designed to be gentle. It is, therefore, an ideal option for all skin types, including sensitive skin. It can be used to address a wide array of cosmetic concerns, including fine lines, creases, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne, and uneven skin texture. The treatment can usually be completed within 30 minutes or less.

Is there any downtime or recovery after Ellacor?

Recovery after Ellacor Micro-Coring is quick and easy. It comes with minimal downtime and minimal risk of side effects.

Immediately after the treatment, patients may experience minor redness and irritation, but these symptoms tend to subside within a few hours.

Patients can expect to reinitiate their normal schedules right away after their session, although they should postpone exposure to direct sunlight or extreme temperatures for a few days. Patients should also avoid using any harsh skincare products or exfoliants for 24-48 hours, as the skin may be more sensitive than usual.

To maximize the benefits of Ellacor micro-coring, patients should follow a good skincare routine that includes gentle cleansing, moisturizing, and sun protection. They should also refrain from smoking and drinking excessive alcohol, as these activities can negatively impact the skin's health and appearance.
