Benefits of Micro-coring

How ellacor® Micro-coring Works

Micro-coring skin tightening uses hollow needles to remove micro-cores of skin, resulting in the improved appearance of moderate and severe wrinkles. As the device moves over the skin, it removes cores of skin in the treatment area. This device is comprised of specifically designed hollow needles that penetrate and remove up to 8% of skin without any scarring. In a sense, this treatment is similar to a punch biopsy performed by a dermatologist, but it removes cores of the skin that are then vacuumed away via the needle hollows.

After the treatment, the body’s natural healing responses kick in. The body works hard to quickly close the cores, resulting in fast and efficient results that include visible improvements to the skin’s texture and a reduction in wrinkles and folds.

ellacor® Micro-coring Candidates

Micro-coring is available for use on the mid and lower face for adults aged 22 or older. This skin treatment is only available for skin types I-IV. Darker skin types V and VI may react differently to the Micro-coring procedure. It is important to schedule a consultation with Boulder Valley Laser and Cosmetic to have your skin evaluated to determine if you are the best candidate for treatment.

Microneedling vs Micro-coring

What is the difference between microneedling and Micro-coring? Microneedling uses small needles to injure the facial tissue, but there is no skin removed during this treatment. Rather, the tissue is temporarily injured to promote the production of wound healing and collagen production.

Micro-coring, on the other hand, is solely focused on removing excess skin without surgery. It is the first device that removes skin on the micro-scale, improves wrinkles and folds at an impressive rate, and results in no visible scarring.

Dermal Fillers vs Micro-coring

Some people may believe that dermal fillers are the answer for the saggy skin. However, we know that is not the case. There is a significant difference between loose skin and volume loss. Dermal fillers are used to address volume loss including shadows, hollow areas, deep lines and creases, and flattened contours. Conversely, micro-coring gets to the bottom of the problem of loose skin which produces folds, jowls, fine lines and saggy/hanging skin.

It is important to understand the difference between the two aging concerns. In addition, volume loss causes a downward shift of the skin, and this sometimes plays into skin laxity. This is why it is important to consult with an expert to determine which treatment is best for your aesthetic skin concerns to determine which method of treatment is right for you.

Micro-coring Downtime and Aftercare

Micro-coring does have downtime of 3-7 days depending on the depth of the treatment. The deeper the treatment, the better the results, with a little more recovery time expected. Resting and staying at home for about a week or so is a good idea to ensure optimal healing. You can expect to experience redness, swelling, and some light bruising. The treatment areas will have a pinkish tint to them for a while. However, your recovery is relatively pain-free, and your post-Micro-coring care is very simple.

Dr. Goldman and his team of experts will ensure you receive specific aftercare and recovery instructions before you leave the office following your Micro-coring treatment.

“I am a long-standing patient of Doctor Goldman’s whom I first consulted for a facelift in 2012. Looking freshened and delighted with the results, I returned last year for another surgery which made how I looked match the way I felt. Before, during, and following both procedures Dr. Goldman was attentive, answered questions, and inquired about my comfort. Because of increased wrinkling around my lower face, last week I underwent the Ellacor procedure. Dr. Goldman continued to be his attentive and concerned self. I must add that his staff is delightful! “
– Aimee L.

“Dr. Goldman is great and has always gone above and beyond to take care of me! He’s got a great bedside manner and regularly checks in to make sure. I understand the treatment plan and don’t have additional questions. I’ve been very happy with Dr. Goldman and would 100% recommend him!

– Lauren C.
“I had a blepharoplasty done in early August by Dr. Goldman, and I am loving the result! I was nervous at first, but Dr. Goldman was patient and attentive, not to mention skilled at his job. The procedure went quickly and was painless. It took about three weeks for me to recover (puffy/swollen eyes and bruising) and for major differences to appear. I would stress that constant icing is critical in the initial healing process. It’s a process I readily recommend, and Dr. G is a pro!”
– Louise T.
