What Is Ellacor?

Ellacor is a groundbreaking aesthetic treatment that uses micro-coring™ technology to firm the skin and lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As you get older or experience changes in your physique (such as with weight loss), you may experience loose, droopy skin as a result of lost volume. While other skin tightening treatments involve surgery or thermal energy, the Ellacor system uses hollow needles to extract "micro-cores" of excess skin, triggering your body's collagen and elastin production at the same time for a naturally firmer, smoother result. Mariano Busso, MD, PA is proud to offer Ellacor as a gentler anti-aging solution for Miami, FL patients who want tighter, younger-looking skin without the risk of scarring. To learn more about this game-changing procedure, reach out to our facility to schedule your Ellacor consultation with our acclaimed dermatologist, Dr. Mariano Busso.

How Does Ellacor Work?

Ellacor treatments at our Miami, FL office usually take less than 30 minutes per session, making them easy to fit into your day. During your appointment, our staff will prepare your skin for the procedure as you lie back in one of our comfortable treatment rooms. We will also administer local anesthesia to reduce any sensation from the treatment. Ellacor works by using a series of small, hollow needles to take out tiny "cores" of excess skin. As these cores are taken out, the body's natural healing process is triggered, improving the skin's texture, tone, and tightness over time. The needles can be adjusted to different depths, giving you options to customize your treatment for optimal results.

After your session, you may have some temporary redness or sensitivity, but there should be no scarring. For the best results, we recommend at least three Ellacor treatments at Mariano Busso, MD, PA, spacing them out 30 days apart.

I love this guy! He's thorough, to the point and is a real problem solver. He is kind, he listens and he's almost painless. For more than 20 years he has been providing the care that I need and has improved my quality of living. I am grateful for his practice and his staff.

Dr. Busso is so sweet and a true professional. I’ve been getting Botox for 15 years and he did the best Botox on me that I’ve ever had! He knows his stuff my brows look lifted and symmetrical. So happy with the results. Thanks Dr. Busso and Kristen!

I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Busso and his entire staff. A true artist! I have had botox, fillers and threading all with great success. Especially the threading to lift my jowls was AMAZING! I didn't realize how much more confident I became afterwards and he fixed my "parenthesis" around my mouth which were deep and very noticeable. Now my face looks youthful and natural. You can tell Dr. Busso LOVES what he does. A true artist at work. You can see it in his face when he is working on you. Think before you go anywhere else. You really want a professional when doing any cosmetic procedure. I would not go anywhere else except Dr. Busso.
