More Ellacor Testimonials

We have been to Chelsea twice now and plan on returning soon and over the long term. Ellacor micro-coring is a simple and very effective process for reducing skin volume without scarring and minimal recovery time. We are very happy with the results. We highly recommend Ellacor over treatments like Ulthera or heat-based procedures. Never let anyone "cook" your skin! Get informed.

There are currently only 6 locations in the US that offers micro-coring. We tried a local surgical center and found them to be very arrogant, impersonal, even rude, so we walked out and decided to drive a distance to Dr. Agha's center. Chelsea is very professional, very informative and knowledgeable and also sweet! We have been treated with very well, and the overall experience at Dr. Agha's center has been very private and comfortable. We highly recommend Chelsea. Consult with her before considering surgery!

I recently had a micro coring treatment with Chelsea. Recovery was about 5 to 5 days for my pale irish skin. However I noticed tightening sooner than expected and have been very pleased with the results. Chelsea has a quiet calm and professional demeanor that made me feel well taken care of. She is very detail oriented and I appreciate that for sure. I am currently recovering from my second session, and am excited to see the results. The whole concept of the Ellacor treatment just makes sense to me. I like the idea of skin removal and no heat.

i will be referring Chelsea for sure , we just loved her...

I had the Ellacor procedure 11 days ago and already see great results. Chelsea (who performed the procedure) was great and the front office staff made me feel very comfortable about the whole procedure. I had it done on Monday and went out for a birthday celebration on Saturday so the downtime was minimal. To see such a difference already makes me excited to see the results after the full results manifest.

I am very pleased with my recent Ellacor treatment. The staff is excellent and reassuring and the facilities are beautiful. I was told I would probably need multiple treatments, and I agree with this, though I am pleased with the results of the first treatment and plan to have another. The areas of concern for me were my jawline and neck and I have seen tightening in these areas. Treatment was relatively pain free, with the initial numbing being the worst. My face was initially red and swollen afterwards but this resolved fairly quickly and I was comfortable going in public after 3 days. There was minimal bruising, redness and tenderness. At 2 weeks all signs of treatment were basically gone. This is a great choice if you are uncomfortable with more drastic interventions or dramatic changes to your face but would like some "refreshing".

I’ve seen Chelsea several times for various post op appointments. Most recently for my first Ellacor treatment. I plan on returning in October for my second procedure.
Ellacor micro-coring is a simple and very effective process for reducing skin volume without scarring and minimal recovery time and I’m so happy with the results so far.
I highly recommend Eleanor over treatments like Ulthera or heat-based procedures. This has much better results and is way less painful.
Chelsea is very professional and knowledgeable, always so upbeat, outgoing and friendly. I have never had an unpleasant experience from the front office staff, to the clinicians, to Dr Agha himself. I highly recommend Dr Agha and Ellacor!!!!

Ellacor had been on my radar for over a year. I was eagerly following the clinical trials and perusing the before and after photos.

The concept of micro-coring struck me as a genius, minimally invasive way to tighten the lower face, jowls, and neck.

So…I did it in July! And…I can’t WAIT to do it again!

Chelsea, the PA at Dr Agha’s aesthetics center in Newport Beach, did my treatment.

I’d sound like a fan girl if I went on and on about how amazing she is so I’ll just say, professionalism, caring, and thoroughness are obviously some of the clinic’s values.

I was topically numbed for an hour, in a very comfortable chair with Netflix available as entertainment. I took ½ a pain medication that I had brought with me, and Chelsea did numbing injections with a cannula—the numbing injections were the least comfortable part of the whole experience.

Once I was numb and Chelsea began, the sensation in the treated areas felt mostly like pressure with extra sensitivity on the upper lip and chin (maybe a 4 on a 1-10 pain scale in those areas).

I followed her advice and purchased some post-treatment skin care to help heal more quickly and with less redness. The products did a great job—I’ll post my days 1-7 downtime photos; by day 10 I didn’t have any residual redness.

I think Ellacor is a great option for tightening sagging skin. Non-surgical, minimal downtime?? I can’t wait to see where they take this technology next!

Dr. Agha and his staff are the most loving and caring team around. I went for my 1st Ellacor treatment back in July and Chelsea was so gentle and patient. The results were so remarkable that I am 6 days out from my 2nd treatment and I am healing up nicely…

PsdawnRealself

I had such a great experience from start to finish. The staff is very friendly and welcoming and Chelsea definitely knows how to make you very comfortable. I went in for the Ellacor skin tightening treatment and cannot wait for my final results. Chelsea did such a great job the entire process couldn’t have been better. She was very thorough with the numbing and targeting as much of my face and neck as possible. The recovery went very quickly just like she explained. I was able to apply sunscreen and be out after only a few days. I would definitely do this again and I look forward to using this office in the future.

How Does Ellacor Work?

The ellacor™ System uses hollow needles to remove excess skin on the microscale. After the skin is removed, the body’s natural healing response goes into effect as the skin quickly realigns to close the cores.

Ellacor™ removes micro-portions of excess skin to achieve an improvement in the appearance of wrinkles without the evidence of scarring and faster healing than many energy-based procedures that use heat generated by laser, radiofrequency and ultrasound energy to induce intentional thermal injury to the skin.

Ellacor Recovery Progression

Recovery time varies from patient to patient. According to Cytrellis’ studies, the average downtime period is 3 days, which means most patients were able to return to their normal routines after 3 days with minimal or no scarring.

How does ellacor™ work?

 The ellacor™ System uses hollow needles to remove micro-cores of of excess skin, resulting in an improved appearance of wrinkles without evidence of scarring1,2 and faster healing time than many energy-based procedures. 

How is the ellacor™ System different from other skin revitalization devices?

Ellacor™ removes micro-portions of excess skin to achieve an improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, whereas many other skin revitalization devices use heat generated by laser, radiofrequency and ultrasound energy to induce intentional thermal injury to the skin. 

How is ellacor™ different from microneedling?

Microneedling uses small needles to injure the tissue, but it is not actually removed during this procedure – the tissue is temporarily displaced. Ellacor™ is the first device to actually remove skin on the micro-scale.

How many treatments will I need?

 As every patient has different needs, we recommend you speak with your provider to determine the treatment plan that is right for you. In the clinical trial, most patients underwent a series of three treatments spaced approximately 30 days apart.

Can I receive treatment with ellacor™ while pregnant?

No. Like other aesthetic treatments, ellacor™ is not approved for use in expectant or lactating mothers.

I go to Chelsea for lip and cheek fillers and neuromodulators . She takes time to understand my aesthetic goals and is meticulous when injecting. She makes the experience comfortable and easy . I highly recommend and trust Chelsea .

Laura J.Yelp Review

Such an amazing facility and staff. I had Micro needling with PRP done and I couldn’t believe how well my face looks. My melasma is practically gone and it cleaned out and shrunk my pores- all after one treatment. Definitely worth the price.

Gabriela LunaGoogle Review

I received 4 cool-sculpting sessions, 2 on each arm and I was very pleased with the results. If you're looking for incremental changes, I definitely recommend cool sculpting. It noticeably toned my arms and I'm a lot more comfortable wearing sleeveless tops now.
