Perfect Skin Center’s Scarless Facelift!

Perfect Skin Center, with  locations in Scottsdale and Tempe, AZ, offers a treatment called ellacor that delivers a non-surgical, scarless facelift using Micro-Coring technology. Patients looking for a treatment that will reverse the signs of aging and improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles without downtime or a long recovery will benefit from a customized treatment plan with this unique anti-aging device.

What Is ellacor?

Ellacor is a treatment that uses breakthrough technology to tighten loose skin and minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face, neck, jawline, and chin. The device uses Micro-Coring technology and is FDA-approved to carefully eliminate micro-sections of the skin to reduce or eliminate lines and wrinkles, improve skin elasticity, and restore a youthful appearance to the treatment area.

How It Differs From Other Skincare Treatments

This treatment differs from microneedling because it uses Micro-Coring technology to remove micro-portions of excess skin in the treatment area.

Microneedling treatments temporarily injure the skin so that the body responds with a healing reaction, while ellacor actually removes excess skin to tighten the area and reduce wrinkles. It’s also different from radiofrequency, ultrasound, and laser devices because it doesn’t rely on thermal energy to deliver results.

What Are the Benefits?

One of the many benefits of this treatment is that it’s completely non-surgical. During a single session, the device will remove up to 10% of excess skin in the treatment area. It’s safe, minimally invasive, and delivers real results. Other treatment benefits include the following:

  • Minimal downtime
  • Zero risk of scarring
  • Noticeably smoother, firmer, and tighter skin
  • No risk of thermal injury
  • A safe and comfortable treatment
  • A versatile and customizable treatment
  • Most patients qualify for treatment

How Does It Work?

The ellacor device has hollow needles that carefully excise thousands of dermal micro-cores from the treatment area. These tiny columns of skin are quickly removed during the treatment, and as they are, the skin effectively shrinks to close the tiny openings created by the device. This process tightens the skin and stimulates collagen production, initiating a natural healing response from the body to rejuvenate the treatment area.


What Happens During a Treatment?

Before beginning the treatment process, Dr. Burgmeier will numb the treatment area to ensure your comfort throughout the 30 to 45-minute session. Then, he will use the device to remove tiny micro-portions of the skin. Once it’s over, you’ll receive aftercare instructions to care for your skin as it heals.

When Will I See the Results?

The best results are visible within three to six months of your initial treatment. Patients often notice initial improvements in their skin after the first week, but the body needs time to heal the area by increasing collagen production, which may take up to 12 weeks. Once your results appear, you’ll notice tighter, smoother, and more voluminous skin, increased collagen production, and a youthful appearance.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Most patients achieve optimal results after one to four sessions, with four to six weeks between each. At your pre-treatment consultation, we’ll evaluate your skin and determine the best number of sessions to ensure you achieve the most visible and longest-lasting results.

How Long Will My Results Last?

The results of this treatment are long-lasting. After completing the recommended sessions, patients can maintain their results for 12 months or longer with proper skincare. Because you cannot stop aging, you may eventually see more wrinkles and experience skin laxity. However, you’ll also be able to schedule a maintenance session at that time to once again stimulate collagen production and tighten your skin.

Am I a Good Candidate?

The best candidates for this treatment are patients who want to treat moderate to more severe wrinkles on the face, neck, chin, and jawline. Patients with visible wrinkles, loose skin, and other signs of aging who don’t want to commit to an invasive surgical procedure to achieve a youthful appearance make good candidates. The best candidates are patients in good health with realistic expectations about the treatment process and the outcome.

It’s also an effective option for patients in good health over 40 who want to treat visible aging and skin laxity through a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment. Some patients may not qualify for this treatment due to safety factors. This treatment is safe for Fitzpatrick skin types one through four. Pregnant women do not qualify for treatment, nor do those patients with medical conditions that could prevent proper wound healing after the treatment.

Is There Downtime?

There’s minimal downtime associated with ellacor treatments. Depending on each patient’s goals and ultimate treatment plan, recovery times range from several days to a few weeks. We’ll provide you with some directives on how to accelerate the healing process, which products to use and which to avoid, and how to take care of your skin in the days and weeks following your treatment.
