Facial Wrinkle Reduction and Tightening Without Surgery!
Dr. Rebecca Baxt, Medical Director of BAXT CosMedical® is excited to announce a new minimally invasive skin renewal system that removes moderate to severe wrinkles in the mid and lower face without surgery…Ellacor+ System with Micro-Coring™ Technology!
The ellacor® System is FDA-cleared to remove micro-cores of dermal and epidermal tissue for the treatment of moderate to severe wrinkles. It addresses skin laxity in the mid and lower face and without surgery or the use of thermal energy. An important plus for patients is the healing time from ellacor® treatments is typically faster than other energy-based technologies.
Schedule a consultation with Dr. Rebecca Baxt to discuss your skin rejuvenation and anti-aging goals to see if you are a candidate for this revolutionary new treatment.

How Does the ellacor® System Work?
Dr. Baxt performs ellacor® to non-surgically lift and tighten the lower face and jowls
The ellacor® system uses proprietary hollow needles to precisely remove micro-cores of excess skin. The internal diameter of each needle is less than 0.5 mm. The small needle size doesn’t cause scarring. The ellacor® system precisely moves the needles across the treatment area, removing micro-cores of the skin as it moves.
After the micro-cores of the skin is removed, the body’s natural healing response goes into effect as the skin quickly realigns to close the cores. Patients undergoing ellacor® treatments see an improvement in the appearance of wrinkles without surgery, scars, and less downtime than many energy-based procedures.
How Is ellacor® System Different From Other Skin Revitalization Devices?
ellacor® is unlike other wrinkle reduction and skin laxity devices that use heat generated by laser, radio frequency, and ultrasound energy causing some heat-related injury to the skin.
What are the Results?
The ellacor® clinical studies resulted in in FDA clearance of the treatment of moderate and severe wrinkles in the mid and lower face of adults ages 22 and older in Fitzpatrick Skin Types I-IV.
Individual results will vary based on a number of factors, but most patients can see results in 2-3 sessions with optimal results showing in a few months after your final ellacor® treatment. Side effects are temporary and can include swelling, bruising, and tenderness. Results are long-lasting but patients are advised to continue with a good skincare regimen and sun protection.

1 Pivotal Study to Evaluate the Effectiveness of a Micro-Coring Device Treating Moderate to Severe Facial Wrinkles. ClinicalTrials.gov NCT 03573271; submitted for publication. 51 subjects completed the pivotal study; subjects were treated 2-3 times with 7%-8% skin removal and up to 5mm needle coring depth. Each patient heals differently; mild to moderate side effects may still be present up to 30 days post-treatment per physician assessment. All clinical data, including patient healing, treatment pain on the 0-10 Wong-Baker Scale, Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale scores, and Subject Satisfaction is on file with Cytrellis.
