Ellacor Scottsdale AZ

Ellacor is a cutting-edge new technology that uses fractional micro-coring to enhance facial imperfections and skin laxity without the need for invasive surgery or risk of scaring. This is the first of its kind device that improves that appearance of the face, neck, jawline, and chin with minimal downtime.

Dr. Tessler is proud to be among the first surgeons to offer the Ellacor dermal micro coring option to his patients in Phoenix, Scottsdale, and surrounding Arizona areas. The surgeon uses this FDA-approved treatment to get rid of micro-portions of skin on areas of the lower face in order to alleviate wrinkles and enhance overall facial skin appearance. If you’re looking for a safe, non-invasive treatment to enhance diverse facial cosmetic options, this advanced technology may be the best option for you.

How does Ellacor work?

Ellacor works by excising micro-cores of skin using hollow needles. This helps improve the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles in areas of the face without any scarring. During the treatment, your plastic surgeon will apply a numbing agent on the targeted treatment areas to enhance your comfort level. This triggers the body’s natural healing response to go into effect as the skin realigns to close the cores. The entire treatment takes between 30 and 45 minutes to complete.


Who is a good candidate for Ellacor?

Ellacor is an FDA-cleared, minimally invasive micro-coring device that helps alleviate moderate to severe wrinkles on areas of the face. This treatment essentially works by removing thousands of very tiny pieces of excess skin to deliver the desired outcome without the need for invasive surgery. You may be a good candidate for this treatment if:

  • You are an adult aged over 40 years looking to address visible signs of facial aging and skin laxity without the need for surgery
  • You are in good overall health
  • You have realistic expectations about the outcome of this nonsurgical treatment

It’s important to note that Ellacor is approved for Fitzpatrick skin types I-IV and thus may not be a suitable treatment option for individuals who have darker skin tones. This treatment is also not ideal for pregnant women and individuals who have medical conditions that inhibit proper wound healing.

Frequently Asked Questions



How does Ellacor work?

Ellacor is an advanced non-surgical treatment that utilizes hollow needles to get rid of excess portions of skin. This in turn triggers the skin’s natural recovery mechanisms, helping resolve wrinkles and improve facial skin appearance without any evidence of scarring. Ellacor has faster healing times compared to many energy-based procedures.


How is Ellacor different from other non-surgical skin rejuvenation techniques?

Ellacor technology was developed at Massachusetts General Hospital and follows a different modus operandi that other common non-surgical skin rejuvenation techniques. It works by removing micro-portions of excess skin, while most other techniques use heat generated by radiofrequency, laser, or ultrasound energy to induce thermal injury to the skin and trigger a natural healing response.


How many Ellacor treatments will I need?

During your Ellacor consultation in Phoenix Az, Dr. Tessler’s office will determine how many treatments are ideal for you based on your unique treatment needs. Many patients get the desired results from just 2 – 4 treatments spaced about four to six weeks apart.
