What is Ellacor?

Ellacor is an FDA-cleared, first-of-its-kind device that significantly tightens and smooths moderate to severe wrinkles and sagging skin on the cheeks, jaw, and jowls through innovative micro-coring technology. This cutting-edge technology removes micro-portions of lax, excess skin, improving the appearance of common signs of aging for tighter, more youthful skin.

Why Choose UnionDerm for Ellacor?

As a premier cosmetic dermatology group and skin rejuvenation center, UnionDerm was one of the very first practices in NYC (and across the country) to offer Ellacor.

Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Chopra completed his cosmetic fellowship under Dr. Rox Anderson, inventor of the Ellacor device, at Harvard Medical School at Massachusetts General Hospital. Training with Dr. Anderson, Dr. Chopra was one of the first physicians in the world to use the Ellacor device and has already performed over 100 procedures. Along with Dr. Chapas, he continues to work with Cytrellis, the parent company of Ellacor, optimizing future generations of the device.

Who is a Candidate for Ellacor?

Healthy individuals with moderate to severe wrinkles and loose skin on the mid to lower face can often benefit from Ellacor treatments. It is also a great option for those who would like to rejuvenate their facial appearance without surgery, with fewer associated risks and less recovery time. To learn if Ellacor is right for you, please contact our office to schedule a consultation appointment.

What Can I Expect from Ellacor Treatments?

Ellacor uses hollow needles to remove micro-cores of skin, resulting in an improved appearance of moderate and severe wrinkles in the mid and lower face with minimal risk of scarring. The device moves the tiny hollow needles across the treatment area, removing micro-cores of skin as it goes. Patients can expect significantly smoother skin weeks after treatment.
Ellacor requires minimal downtime for the skin to begin the healing process – typically a week or less. Optimal results can be seen just weeks to months after your initial treatment.

What Areas can Ellacor treat?

Ellacor can address a number of different body areas, including:

  • Mid and lower face (cheeks, jaw, and jowls)
  • Lower face/ submental region
  • Abdomen
  • Inner arms


Frequently Asked Questions about Ellacor

How does Ellacor Work?

Ellacor works by using hollow needles to remove cores of skin. After the skin is removed, it sets off the body’s natural healing abilities to close the cores, stimulating collagen production and giving you smoother and tighter skin.

What areas can Ellacor treat?

Ellacor can tighten and smooth the skin on the lower face, the chin and neck area, the abdomen, and the inner arms.

How many Ellacor treatments will I need?

How many treatments you’ll need will depend on the results you’re looking for, but we typically recommend 2-3 treatment sessions.

How long is Ellacor treatment?

Ellacor treatment typically takes 30-45 minutes.

Is Ellacor treatment painful?

Since a numbing agent is applied before treatment, you are unlikely to feel any pain at all.
