Achieve Skin Tightening Without Surgery

Ellacor may be the answer for those seeking natural-looking results without the discomfort and extended recovery time associated with invasive surgeries or procedures. It is the first and only FDA-cleared non-surgical procedure for removing excess skin, with 90% of patients reporting improvement in moderate to severe facial wrinkles. Clevens Face & Body Specialists proudly offers this cutting-edge solution to our discerning patients.

How The Micro-Coring® Procedure Works

Ellacor utilizes hollow needles to extract micro-cores of excess skin, reducing moderate and severe wrinkles in the mid and lower face without any scarring. The internal diameter of each needle is less than 0.5mm, which removes up to 8% of skin without evidence of scarring. 

The device then moves these needles carefully across the treatment area with precision. As the device progresses, it eliminates micro-cores of skin. For an area covering 10mm of skin, the treatment takes under three seconds. As a result, the entire Ellacor treatment process typically takes less than 30 minutes. The Ellacor procedure does not involve heat, eliminating the risk of unintended thermal injury.

Following the procedure, the body's natural healing response kicks into gear. During this part of the process, the skin rapidly realigns to close the cores. The final result is an enhanced skin structure that looks entirely natural.

What To Expect: Before, During, And After


At Clevens Face and Body Specialists, your journey starts with a comprehensive consultation aimed at providing you with valuable information. During this session, we take the time to understand your personal history, cosmetic objectives, and other pertinent details that led you to our practice. Based on this knowledge, we create a customized treatment plan to help you achieve your desired look and feel great about yourself.


On the day of your treatment, we will ensure your comfort during the procedure by administering a local anesthetic. Once your skin is numb, our provider will strategically place the Ellacor device on your skin to create micro-cores in a precise grid pattern. The excess skin will be removed through the hollow needles, but the micro-cores are so small that they will begin to heal almost immediately.


After your Ellacor treatment, you may experience some downtime ranging from a few days to a week. Common side effects may include redness and swelling, but these should subside within a few days. We recommend covering the treated area with ointment for one to two days and avoiding makeup and harsh skin products for one week.


Your individual results will depend on several factors, but most patients experience an improvement in skin laxity within several weeks of treatment. Two to three sessions are typically recommended, with optimal results visible a few months after your final treatment. Results are long-lasting, and you can improve the longevity of your results with a good skincare routine that includes sun protection.

How should I prepare for the Ellacor procedure?

How is Ellacor different from other similar treatments?

While most skin revitalization treatments use lasers, radiofrequency energy, and ultrasound energy to head the underlying skin tissue, Ellacor instead works by removing micro-cores of excess skin.

How many treatment sessions will I need?

During clinical trials, patients needed approximately three treatment sessions spaced one month apart for optimal results. However, each patient is unique, and our Ellacor experts will help you determine the ideal treatment plan for your needs.

Is the Ellacor procedure painful?

Before your Ellacor treatment, numbing medicine will be carefully placed in the targeted treatment area. You may experience some mild discomfort, but there shouldn’t be any significant pain.

How is Ellacor different from microneedling?

While microneedling and Ellacor have some similarities, they are not the same. While microneedling does utilize tiny needles, it does not involve the removal of any skin. Ellacor is the first and only cosmetic device capable of removing micro-cores of skin.

Does Ellacor work for darker skin tones?

Currently, there is not enough data available to determine whether or not Ellacor is an effective treatment for darker skin tones. With certain aesthetic treatments, darker skin tones have been shown to react differently than lighter ones.

How should I prepare for the Ellacor procedure?

Before your Ellacor treatment, your physician will give you instructions to properly prepare for the procedure. For example, you’ll likely need to avoid direct sun exposure or tanning beds that may leave your skin swollen or peeling.
