Sagging skin may cause definition loss anywhere on the face and body, although it most typically appears on the neck, belly, arms, and inner thighs. Loose, sagging, or extra skin might be caused by fast weight loss, pregnancy, or aging (skin loses elasticity naturally as collagen synthesis decreases). Tiredness may also result in loose skin around the eyes (baggy eyes/under-eye wrinkles).
Saggy skin induced by weight reduction may need more difficult and invasive weight loss surgical treatments such as tummy tucks (abdominoplasty) or other body reshaping cosmetic operations for the best outcomes.
This post will look at sagging skin that may be corrected without cosmetic surgery. We’ll focus on noninvasive face treatments in particular.
Ellacore micro-coring treatment
Ellacor is a revolutionary non-surgical, minimally invasive skin tightening therapy that uses micro-coring. Micro-coring is precisely what it sounds like: it employs hollow needles to remove tiny skin cores from the treatment region carefully. When these micro-cores are removed, the body’s natural healing reaction kicks in, realigning the skin and minimizing the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles, and other imperfections.
During a single Ellacor treatment session, up to 10,000 micro-cores may be removed from the skin. While each core penetrates the whole thickness of the skin, Ellacor needles are smaller than 0.5 mm in diameter, much below the scarring threshold.
Ellacor does not need stitches, incision care, or a significant healing time since these cores are not incisions. Therefore, recovering will take less time, and you will return to your usual routine in no time.
In a continued commitment to providing patients with state-of-the-art treatments, Dr. Adam J. Rubinstein, MD, FACS, a board-certified plastic surgeon acclaimed for his dedication to patient safety and education, announces that his practice is among the first to offer Ellacor Micro-Coring treatment.
“Ellacor is redefining the future of aesthetic treatments,” Dr. Rubinstein remarks. “By sidestepping the pitfalls of traditional surgical interventions, Ellacor offers a transformative experience, enabling patients to attain remarkable results with minimal invasiveness.”
While aesthetic medicine is flooded with treatments, few can promise the combination of efficiency, safety, and exceptional outcomes that Ellacor offers. Its departure from treatments that intentionally induce thermal harm to the skin distinguishes it as a unique offering in rejuvenation.
The FDA approval of Ellacor technology is a game-changer in aesthetic medicine. This non-surgical procedure promises to rejuvenate the skin, targeting moderate to severe wrinkles, especially in the mid to lower face regions. Unlike other procedures, Ellacor ensures no visible scarring, as it cleverly utilizes micro-coring needles to improve skin texture and appearance.
Committed to keeping patients informed, Dr. Rubinstein continually educates the public about the nuances of cosmetic surgery, allowing them to make the best choices for their needs.
For those considering a skin-rejuvenation treatment that combines efficiency, minimal invasiveness, and no visible scarring, the Ellacor Micro-Coring procedure offered by Dr. Rubinstein offers a promising solution.

Other non-surgical treatments
Microneedling is a treatment option that aims to boost collagen production. It is a moderately successful face therapy, treating conditions such as fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, large pores, skin laxity, and scarring.
During this face treatment, small, extremely thin needles are used to pierce the skin, generating micro-wounds. This activates the body’s healing response, including increased collagen and elastin production.
The effectiveness of the therapy is boosted when microneedling is coupled with the use of radiofrequency. RF waves are directed into the puncture holes generated by the needles and give heat to the dermis, the deep layers of the skin. Collagen and elastin are increased more than by microneedling alone, and the heat action results in tighter skin.
Depending on the energy levels employed, the therapy causes mild to moderate pain, however, steps are made to maximize comfort. Each session lasts between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on the region treated. Three sessions, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, is a typical treatment regimen for noticeable results.
Injectable Biostimulatory Products
Injectable biostimulatory medicines are intended to replenish lost volume while stimulating collagen formation. The stimulatory products are injected directly into the skin’s soft tissue, plumping up the region while stimulating collagen formation.
The product may be injected into the face except for the under eyes and around the mouth. It is also applied to the body. Collagen formation may take up to 6 months, with results lasting up to 2-3 years.
You will feel mild pain apart from the standard feeling of any injectable treatment. Bruising and swelling are possible side effects.
This therapy gives A chemical solution topically, generally to the whole face and neck rather than just a small region. The solution dissolves the outer layer of dead skin, exposing the fresh, smoother skin underneath. The chemicals utilized also penetrate the skin’s layers deep enough to stimulate collagen and elastin formation.
Light, medium, and deep chemical peels are available, varying session lengths. Although a non-invasive cosmetic surgery, the deepest peels may need minor anesthesia and pain management.
Although no downtime is indicated, the peeling and healing procedure normally takes around a week. It may take longer with deeper peels, and the skin will be red and puffy as a result. After a thorough peel, this may linger for many months.
The skin may feel tight, dry, and irritated following a chemical peel. The chemicals temporarily impair the skin’s natural barrier, but a moisturizing serum or moisturizer will aid in healing and relieve any irritation or pain.
Because the results are not permanent, frequent treatments will be necessary.
Ellacor technology, which the FDA has authorized, is a game changer in aesthetic medicine. This non-surgical method revitalizes the skin by addressing moderate to severe wrinkles, mainly mid to lower face.
Unlike other non-surgical treatments, Ellacor uses micro-coring needles to enhance skin texture and appearance, resulting in no visible scars.
