How Is Ellacor Micro-Coring Performed in Troy?
Before your treatment, your skin specialist may apply a topical anesthetic and an injected anesthetic to numb the treatment area. The Ellacor technology uses hollow needles to remove micro-cores of excess skin, resulting in younger-looking skin. The removed micro-cores are vacuumed through the hollow needles.
This safe and effective treatment targets mid and lower-face areas without any scarring. This is because the diameter of each needle is below 0.5 mm and is below the requirement for scarring.
The Ellacor device glides across the 10 mm square treatment area, removing microcores of skin in less than 30 minutes. After the procedure, your body will naturally heal, and the skin will realign where the micro-cores were created.
This treatment has a quick healing time compared to other skin tightening techniques. Comparable techniques include surgery and thermal laser treatments. Ellacor micro-coring is the first skin tightening treatment to remove skin on the micro-scale. This treatment focuses on removing the aged skin cells and healing the skin.
How Should I Care for My Skin Following Ellacor Micro-Coring?
After your Ellacor treatment, you should expect three to seven days of downtime, depending on the amount of skin removed. You may experience initial redness, bruising, and swelling in the treatment area. Recovery usually is relatively painless and can be addressed with over-the-counter medications. You should avoid using makeup or skincare products for one week after your procedure.
Your doctor may provide you an ointment to use following your treatment until healed. It is essential to follow all at-home care instructions to ensure proper healing of the area.
