During your consultation with your ACPS med spa provider, we will examine your unique characteristics in order to recommend the best non-surgical methods to restore a youthful, refreshed appearance.
ACPS is excited to be the very first plastic surgery office to offer ellacor®. ellacor is a revolutionary device from medical technology company Cytrellis. This minimally invasive treatment uses Micro-Coring™ technology to diminish wrinkles and age-related skin laxity in the mid to lower face. Clinical studies of ellacor report a 91% improvement of moderate to severe wrinkle/s and a very high rate of patient satisfaction.
ellacor is one of the first devices to use a fractional tissue extraction process called micro-coring to rejuvenate skin. Advanced signs of facial aging, such as deep wrinkles and sagging skin, can be difficult to treat effectively without surgery. ellacor can deliver smoother, tighter, younger looking skin without surgery and without any scarring. The ellacor device allows for micro-excisional removal of excess skin with very fine hollow needles. The needles are small and precise enough to reach the full thickness of the skin without leaving any scarring.
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.
A local anesthetic will be administered to the area to be treated to help you stay comfortable during your treatment. Once your skin is numb, your provider will strategically place ellacor device to your skin to create micro-cores in a precise grid pattern. Excess skin will be removed through the hollow needles, but the micro-cores are so tiny that they will begin to heal almost immediately.
An ellacor® procedure typically takes about 30 minutes or less depending on the area. First, your skin will be numbed with a local anesthetic, then your provider will strategically place the ellacor® device on your skin to create micro-cores in a precise grid pattern. Excess skin is removed through the hollow needles, but the micro-cores are so tiny that they will begin to heal almost immediately. After your treatment the recovery takes up to one week of downtime or until you are comfortable having your face seen in public.
The ellacor System is an innovative non-invasive technology designed to improve skin elasticity and tighten loose or saggy skin.
The system uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to penetrate deep into the skin tissue, heating the collagen fibers and stimulating new collagen growth. This leads to tighter, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin.
