Combining Ellacor With Bellafill – The 5 Year Filler

Question: I’ve heard good things about Ellacor
non-surgical skin removal as a treatment for my sagging jowls. I also have hollow cheeks and deep nasolabial smile lines and was wondering if Ellacor can be combined with fillers like Bellafill which lasts 5 years.

Answer: The innovative Ellacor dermal micro-coring system permanently removes tiny micro-columns of skin in the face and neck, without surgery or incisions, using a hollow core needle technology. Healing is typically fast enough that patients can wear makeup 3 days following treatment.

Bellafill – the 5-year filler – is popular for deep wrinkles and facial hollows. Bellafill works by stimulating your body’s own collagen resulting in definition and contour to the face rather than a puffy or overfilled look. Bellafill is highly safe and can give a more natural look compared to other fillers.

While Ellacor removes loose skin along your jawline, it can also soften your deep nasolabial smile lines as well as other facial wrinkles. Bellafill can be used to treat your cheek hollows and further soften the nasolabial smile lines, if needed, following the Ellacor treatment. This combination rejuvenation approach can replace the need for facelift surgery in patients who are good candidates.

Ellacor is a minimal invasive, non-surgical treatment. Like Bellafill, it can give long-term results. In fact, the results of Ellacor are permanent. All patients age differently with aging not simply limited to one area of the face but typically occuring in multiple facial and neck areas. For this reason, multiple minimal invasive facial rejuvenation treatments are often more beneficial than a single modality.

Combining Ellacor with a 5-year filler like Bellafill allows patients to undergo minimal invasive treatments that last much longer than most temporary non-surgical treatments but without the incisions, downtime and risks associated with aggressive surgery.

If you have sagging skin, deep wrinkles, or facial hollowing and desire a long-term solution without resorting to surgery, you may be a candidate for Ellacor micro-coring combined with Bellafill – the 5-year filler. A detailed consultation with a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon experienced in minimal invasive facial rejuvenation is the first step.
