Suppose Twice In regards to the New Ellacor Micro-Coring

This new know-how is being marketed as a mini facelift; a 30 minute process with little discomfort and a 4 day therapeutic interval. Here is the reality.

Backside Line:  Not but prepared for prime time, keep away from it for now.

Ellacor is being hyped as the newest and best know-how to permit pores and skin tightening and a mini facelift like impact. It’s a micro-coring system which implies it makes use of a needle as an alternative of utilizing a microscopic laser wave to wreck previous collagen, get it to slough off (assume aerating your garden), after which new collagen rising in. This needle is small, however seen and takes a bit out of your pores and skin in tiny increments. Every remedy removes about 5-7% after which pores and skin tightening is the specified impact. Because it seems, that’s not fairly the entire story.

Issues with Ellacor micro-coring:

  • Leaves “track marks” on the pores and skin as much as 2 months and typically longer
  • Redness persists longer than many lasers
  • Hyperpigmentation – brown areas – persist even when double layering excessive zinc sunscreen
  • Odd line of demarcation in the course of the cheek as a result of present protocols require this placement
  • Pores and skin tenderness and sensitivity can persist for a number of months.

Advertising and marketing versus Actuality

  1. 30 min process  –  I used to be there for two.5 hours which included examine in, pictures, injectable numbing (some topical would have been good prior), process and take a look at.
  2. Therapeutic in 4 days –  At 2 months I nonetheless had seen marks, particularly throughout the mid-cheek that have been tough to cowl with make-up. Please see our Instagram at drbrandith_skin for the photograph sequence of me therapeutic.
  3. Little discomfort – this process requires injectable numbing and nonetheless was not very comfy as a consequence of incomplete anesthesia. A dental block for the perioral space would have helped, as would have some prior topical numbing.
  4. Little or no bruising.  A substantial quantity of bleeding and bruising, particularly across the mouth and mid-cheek, more than likely as a result of injectable numbing.
  5. Puffiness lasted the anticipated 3-4 days.
  6. Enchancment immediately.   You may even see no results at 40 days however this response will be variable.
