ellacor® System for skin tightening, is your answer for visible and natural-looking results without the excessive pain and extended recovery time associated with more invasive surgeries or procedures. Please schedule a consultation If you're interested in ellacor® in Houston at Dr. Mentz.
ellacor® is a revolutionary and minimally invasive treatment that diminishes wrinkles and age-related skin laxity in the mid to lower face. Clinical studies of ellacor® report a 91% improvement in moderate to severe wrinkles with a high patient satisfaction rate.
How Does The ellacor® System Work?
ellacor® features proprietary Micro-Coring™ Technology and is the first and only device of its kind that removes skin on the microscale to improve the appearance of wrinkles. Hollow needles remove micro-cores of skin, and the fractional tissue extraction process treats advanced signs of facial aging, such as deep wrinkles and sagging skin.
Many other skin revitalization devices use laser-generated heat, radio frequency, and ultrasound energy to induce intentional thermal injury to the skin. By using tiny and precise needles to reach the entire thickness of the skin, ellacor® rejuvenates your face without surgery or scarring. You get smoother, tighter, and younger-looking skin in three procedures spaced thirty days apart.

ellacor® uses no energy to extract the skin, meaning there is no residual scarring. By removing a specific amount of skin, ellacor® improves lines and tightens in thirty minutes or less.

ellacor® System Procedure
First, your skin will be numbed with a local anesthetic, then Dr. Mentz 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 of ellacor® in Houston, the recovery takes up to one week of downtime or until you are comfortable having your face seen in public. Most of the clinical trial’s patients felt their recovery concluded after three days.
You should keep the treatment site covered with ointment for the next two days and avoid makeup and other harsh skin products for one week. While common side effects include redness and swelling, these should subside within a few days.
You should notice improved skin laxity and diminished wrinkles within several weeks of treatment. One of the ellacor® benefits is that results are long-lasting, but you can extend the longevity of your results with a comprehensive skincare routine that includes daily sun protection.
