Local Practice Is the First To Offer Ellacor® in the Tucson Area

Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Jerold Olson announces the addition of ellacor skin tightening treatment at the Tucson practice.

Tucson, Arizona (April 2023) – Dr. Jerold Olson is proud to be the first to offer ellacor treatments to men and women in the greater Tucson area at Foothills Dermatology & Facial Plastic Surgery (https://www.foothillsfacialplasticsurgery.com). Ellacor is the first skin treatment to use micro-coring technology to remove micro-sections of skin, improving skin issues such as moderate to severe skin laxity, fine lines, and wrinkles.

Patients who have already tried microneedling or who want to tighten loose, sagging skin around the mouth, lower cheeks, and jawline are usually good candidates for ellacor. Microneedling punctures the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production, but ellacor actually removes tiny portions of the skin for more effective results without scarring.

The device can remove up to 8% of the skin in the treatment area, eliminating some of the excess, lax skin and prompting the body’s natural healing response. As the body works to close the micro-wounds, the skin accelerates its production of collagen and elastin, so wrinkles, folds, and sagging skin smooth and tighten.

Ellacor is safe to use for most skin types and skin tones. To learn more about ellacor skin tightening, call (520) 200-2218.
