New Ellacor: Get the Lift Without the Surgery

Alright, younger readers, here’s a glimpse into your future. As we hit our forties and beyond, many of us start pulling back our skin in the mirror, imagining how we could regain that youthful appearance. We ruminate over the cost, time commitment, and fear associated with traditional facelifts.

But here’s the exciting news—Ellacor offers a new, more affordable option. It targets micro-cores of skin across the lower face, jawline, and neck, requiring minimal recovery time and hassle. And guess what? It’s now available at Midwest Dermatology!

Nothing Tells a Story Like a Picture

Let’s begin with a few before-and-after photos. These images speak volumes: tighter skin, significant reduction of parentheses lines, and a more defined chin. And in just two treatments, spaced months apart, you can achieve even more dramatic results. Some patients opt for a total of three treatments to achieve their desired look, and if that’s your choice, spreading the cost makes Ellacor even more affordable!

How It Works

You’ll begin in the comfort of our new Dodge Street office, where our friendly staff will check you in and prepare you for the procedure. First, we apply a topical numbing agent to ensure your comfort as it takes effect. Then, Dr. Darling administers local anesthesia to guarantee your full comfort throughout the procedure, which typically lasts about half an hour once we begin.

Ellacor harnesses Micro-Coring technology, a pioneering approach in cosmetic dermatology. Dr. Darling uses the Ellacor device, similar to those used in microneedling, but with a unique twist: hollow needles designed to precisely penetrate and remove up to 8% of the skin in a grid-like pattern. Remarkably, this process leaves no visible scarring. As the body’s natural healing response kicks in, the micro cores swiftly close, resulting in a visibly improved appearance.

Natural and Significant Results

As you can see in the photos, the results are natural and significant. If you want visible, natural-looking results without the excessive downtime of a more invasive procedure, Ellacor may be your answer. It’s also worth noting that Ellacor is the first and only FDA-cleared procedure for non-surgically removing excess skin.

Free Consultation

Your consultation to see if Ellacor is right for you is free! We are happy to listen to your goals and discuss Ellacor with you. During the consultation, we will examine your skin (probably while you are talking about your goals—you won’t even know we are looking!) and determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. We will explain the cost and go over pre- and post-treatment needs.

Recovery and Downtime

While healing and downtime are significantly reduced by Ellacor, there is still a brief recovery period where you may experience:

  1. Redness and Swelling: It is normal to experience some redness and swelling in the treated area. Applying a cold compress or ice pack can help reduce these symptoms.
  2. Sensitivity and Tightness: The skin may feel sensitive and tight after the procedure. Avoid using harsh skincare products or engaging in activities that may further irritate the skin.
  3. Mild Discomfort: Some individuals may experience mild discomfort, such as itching or stinging, during the healing process. Consult with your skincare professional about appropriate over-the-counter remedies or creams to alleviate these symptoms.
  4. Follow-up Appointments: Schedule follow-up appointments with Dr. Darling to monitor your progress and address any concerns or complications that may arise.
