ellacor at PryorHealth in Chicago North Shore

Dr. Anderson and Dr. Asif, our board-certified surgeons at PryorHealth, are experienced in performing ellacor procedures. They will work closely with you to determine if this treatment is right for you and create a personalized treatment plan to achieve your desired results.

What is ellacor?

ellacor is a highly effective and minimally invasive skin tightening treatment that utilizes the latest micro-coring technology for wrinkle reduction and skin rejuvenation. Unlike traditional microneedling techniques, which create tiny punctures on the surface of your skin, ellacor uses hollow needles to gently remove microscopic cores of tissue from deeper layers of your skin. Micro-coring triggers the body's natural healing process and, through these tiny hollow needles, stimulates the production of collagen, the protein responsible for giving your skin its firm, smooth, and youthful appearance. The precision of ellacor micro-coring technology ensures that only the damaged, aging, and excess skin tissue in these cores is removed, leaving the surrounding healthy skin untouched. This results in a more uniform and consistent improvement in the texture and tone of your skin. The treatment is painless and requires minimal downtime, making it an ideal solution for busy individuals who want a beautiful, radiant look and improved appearance without having to undergo extensive recovery periods.

ellacor Benefits

  • Noticeable Results: Experience significant fine line and wrinkle reduction, and improvement in excess sagging skin.
  • Non-Surgical Approach: Avoid the risks and extended recovery associated with surgery.
  • Reduced Downtime: Return to most daily activities within a few days.
  • Improved Skin Texture: Enjoy smoother, tighter, and more radiant skin.
  • Long-lasting Results: Maintain your youthful appearance for years to come with proper skincare.

ellacor Candidates

Ideal candidates for ellacor are individuals over 40 who experience moderate to significant facial wrinkles and sagging but are not interested in or suited for a facelift. During your consultation, our doctors will discuss your medical history, aesthetic concerns, treatment area, and goals to determine if ellacor micro-coring is the right option for you.

Consultation and Preparation

A consultation at PryorHealth is the first step in determining if ellacor is right for you. During your consultation, Dr. Anderson or Dr. Asif will assess your facial structure, discuss your desired outcome, and answer any questions you may have. You will also receive detailed instructions on how to prepare for your ellacor procedure.


ellacor is typically performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia or topical numbing cream. A specialized device gently extracts tiny cores of tissue from targeted areas of the face using hollow needles. The procedure typically takes one hour or less.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

You can expect to see some initial improvement in skin texture and tightness and reduction in excess skin laxity immediately following your procedure. However, the most significant results will develop gradually over the next few months as collagen production increases. Most patients experience minimal discomfort after the procedure and can return to most daily activities within a few days. You will be given specific instructions on caring for the treatment area and maximizing your results.
