The ellacor™ system is a first-of-its-kind technology for the treatment of wrinkles that removes micro-cores of excess skin in the mid and lower face, without surgery, without the use of thermal energy and without evidence of scarring.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Ellacor uses hollow needles to remove micro-cores of skin, resulting in an improved appearance of wrinkles without evidence of scarring.
HOW IS ELLACOR DIFFERENT FROM OTHER SKIN REVITALIZING DEVICES?
Ellacor removes micro-cores of excess skin to improve the appearance of wrinkles, whereas many other skin revitalization devices use heat generated by laser, radio-frequency and ultrasound energy to induce thermal remodeling to the skin.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Every patient has different needs. A consultation is necessary with your physician to determine the treatment plan that is right for you. In the clinical trial, most patients underwent a series of three procedures spaced approximately 30 days apart.
HOW LONG IS THE PROCEDURE?
An ellacor procedure typically takes about 30 minutes to perform.
IS THE PROCEDURE PAINFUL?
Local anesthetic is administered prior to the procedure to make you more comfortable. Most patients report their pain during the procedure as less than 2 on a 0-10 scale
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY TIME?
In the pivotal clinical trial, 70% of patients were comfortable going out in public or returning to work 3 days after treatment. Therefore, some patients may feel comfortable going out in public sooner than three days, while other patients may prefer a longer recovery time.
DOES ELLACOR USE LASER, RADIOFREQUENCY, OR ULTRASOUND ENERGY?
The ellacor system is able to remove skin on the microscale without the use of thermal energy.
HOW IS ELLACOR DIFFERENT FROM MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling uses small needles to injure the tissue, but skin is not removed during this procedure – the tissue is temporarily displaced. Ellacor is a first of a kind device to actually remove skin on the microscale.
Pivotal Study to Evaluate the Effectiveness of a Micro-Coring Device Treating Moderate to Severe Facial Wrinkles. ClinicalTrials.gov NCT 03573271; submitted for publication. 51 subjects completed the pivotal study; subjects were treated 2-3 times with 7%-8% skin removal and up to 5mm needle coring depth. Each patient heals differently; mild to moderate side effects may still be present up to 30 days post-treatment per physician assessment. All clinical data, including patient healing, treatment pain on the 0-10 Wong-Baker Scale, Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale scores, and Subject Satisfaction is on file with Cytrellis.
