If you are struggling with wrinkles and sagging skin in the mid-to-lower face, you may want to consider Ellacor®. This non-surgical treatment can remove excess skin and smooth out wrinkles. Adam J. Rubinstein, M.D., F.A.C.S., offers this advanced cosmetic solution to the men and women living in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and the surrounding areas of South Florida.
What is Ellacor®?
Ellacor® is a non-surgical treatment that can remove sagging skin to reduce wrinkles in the mid-to-lower face. It is loosely similar to microneedling treatments, as the Ellacor® device uses hollow needles to penetrate the skin. As it pierces the skin’s surface, the Ellacor® device removes cores of skin using its hollow needles. This process removes approximately 8% of skin while triggering a healing response in the body, which rejuvenates the skin as it closes the gaps. This award-winning procedure has become a top choice for patients who want to avoid surgery while still improving moderate to severe facial wrinkles.
What are the Benefits of Ellacor®?
Ellacor® offers benefits that include:
First and only FDA approved treatment for non-surgical skin removal

Improves moderate to severe wrinkles
Rejuvenates mid-to-lower face
Quick 30-minute treatment
How Does Ellacor® Work?
Ellacor® works using a technique known as Micro-Coring®. While there are many non-surgical solutions for rejuvenating the skin, Ellacor® is the only one that actually removes the skin. Its hollow needles are able to remove “micro-cores” of skin as the Ellacor® device is applied to the treatment area. This is done without heat or laser energy, and the needles are small enough to eliminate any risk of scarring. The Ellacor® treatment triggers a healing response that stimulates collagen production, rapidly healing and tightening the skin in the treatment area.
Is the Ellacor® Treatment Painful?
Prior to the Ellacor® treatment, we can provide the necessary anesthesia to ensure your comfort and safety. On a scale from 0 to 10, most patients rank the pain levels during the Ellacor® treatment at a 2 or lower.
What is Recovery Like After Ellacor® Treatments?
The recovery period after Ellacor® treatments can range from a few days to a few weeks, depending on the patient’s response to treatment. Generally, patients can expect some swelling and redness in the skin, and may want to take at least a few days off of social activities until these side effects fade. Fortunately, the recovery process is pain-free and requires very little aftercare.
How is Ellacor® Different from Microneedling?
Ellacor® and microneedling are similar in that they both use small needles to rejuvenate the skin. However, the main difference is that Ellacor® uses hollow needles, while microneedling does not. Ellacor® uses hollow needles that remove cores of skin during treatment. Conversely, microneedling uses solid needles that simply displace the skin to trigger a healing response. While both offer rejuvenation benefits, Ellacor® is the only non-surgical treatment that can actually remove excess skin to provide dramatic improvements in sagging skin, wrinkles and lines.
How Many Ellacor® Treatments Will I Need?
Dr. Rubinstein typically recommends a series of 3 Ellacor® treatment sessions performed at 30-day intervals. Results will continue to develop as you progress through your treatment sessions, with final results appearing approximately six months after your final treatment session.
Am I a Candidate for Ellacor®?
Ellacor® is a minimally-invasive treatment that is suitable for most patients with Fitzpatrick skin types I-IV. If you are interested in removing excess skin and improving lines and wrinkles in the mid-to-lower face, you may be a good candidate for Ellacor®. However, the best way to determine your candidacy for Ellacor® treatments is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rubinstein.
