What is Ellacor?
The EllacorTM System with Micro-CoringTM Technology is a first-of-its-kind wrinkle and skin laxity treatment device that provides natural-looking results with minimal downtime. Ellacor has been approved by the FDA for use in the mid to lower face, including the cheeks, around the mouth, and under the chin. An Ellacor™ treatment typically takes about 30 to 45 minutes (not including pre-op).

How many treatments are necessary and how often?
As every patient has different needs, Dr. Frank will assess your skin and discuss your aesthetic concerns and goals in order to determine the number of Ellacor treatments required. Generally, 2-4 treatments are required. Treatments are four to six weeks apart.
