Does it seem like every few months there is revolutionary new technology or medical device that claims to be a “miracle” treatment for visible signs of aging? If you answered, yes…you are not wrong! There are a plethora of new aesthetic devices, but do they really live up to their hype?
Although it’s exciting to see what the new devices are available for rejuvenating aging skin, Dr. Rebecca Baxt finds that they don’t always live up to the hype. While she understands the public desire to know more about the hottest new aesthetic treatments, she recommends that you seek the advice from a skin care expert.As a board-certified dermatologist. Dr. Baxt has been practicing medical and cosmetic dermatology for over 20 years and she offers her patients an array of non-surgical facial and body aesthetic services. Prior to bringing a new device to BAXT CosMedical®, Dr. Baxt thoroughly reviews the clinical data, evaluates the safety and effectiveness, and studies patient results.
While many of the newer minimally invasive laser, radio frequency (RF) and light source technologies live up to their claims, Dr. Baxt has to be convinced that they deliver significantly better results than existing devices. Recently, one new technology passed her examination, ellacor® System with Micro-Coring™ Technology!
In January 2023, Dr. Baxt announced the availability of this new minimally invasive skin renewal system to her practice. The ellacor® system reduces wrinkles in the mid and lower face and tightens skin without surgery. This new and innovative technology removes thousands of tiny pieces of skin without surgery. The ellacor® System with Micro-Coring Technology™ is the first and only device that removes skin on the microscale for an improvement of wrinkles. An added benefit is that the treatment tightens loose skin.
What Is Micro-Coring Technology™ And How Does It Work?
The ellacor® System with Micro-Coring Technology™ is a remarkable device that is FDA-cleared to remove micro-cores of dermal and epidermal tissue for the treatment of moderate to severe wrinkles and it addresses skin laxity in the mid and lower face without surgery or the use of thermal energy.1
Basically, ellacor® works by using proprietary hollow needles to precisely remove micro-cores of skin. With the internal diameter of each needle being less than 0.5 mm, there is no scarring. Dr. Baxt precisely moves the needles across the treatment area, removing micro-cores of the skin as it moves.
Following the removal of the targeted micro-cores of the patient’s skin, the body’s natural healing response goes into effect and the skin quickly realigns to close the cores. Patients undergoing ellacor® treatments see an improvement in the appearance of wrinkles without surgery and scarring, and there is less downtime than associated with many other procedures.
Dr. Baxt emphasizes that ellacor® is unlike other wrinkle reduction and skin laxity devices that use heat that is generated by a laser, radio frequency, or ultrasound energy and causing some heat-related injury to the skin.

While individual results will vary, 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.
