In Encinitas, CA

Vibrant, Healthy Skin

At Your Cosmetic Office in Encinitas, California, we offer radiant skin rejuvenation using Ellacor. This treatment combines cutting-edge technologies with potent, nourishing ingredients to address a spectrum of skin concerns.

Double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Mario Yco is able to restore vibrant, healthy skin with this luxurious treatment, while also establishing a more youthful appearance.

What Is Ellacor?

Ellacor system with micro-coring technology is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenating treatment that utilizes a technique called micro-coring to tighten the skin. The device uses fine, hollow needles to safely remove tiny plugs of skin from the treatment area, resulting in the improved appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles in the mid-face. Unlike other skin rejuvenating devices that use heat, laser, or radio frequency energy to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, Ellacor permanently removes tiny portions of skin to tighten the skin on the face and neck.


“Dr. Yco and his team are absolute pros”

Dr. Yco and his team are absolute pros. He takes his time to truly understand what you are looking for and offer appropriate solutions.

Who Is a Candidate for Ellacor?

Patients who have had a facelift and need to address areas above their lip and around their mouth or patients who aren’t ready for surgery but want a rejuvenation. Patients who have moderate lines on their cheeks and crepey skin on their cheek area, under their chin, and on their neck, above their knees, elbows, and abdomen. The best way to determine your candidacy is by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Yco at Your Cosmetic Office.

Ellacor Procedure

Before the procedure, we will apply a numbing cream to the areas to be treated (for up to an hour) followed by an injection by Dr. Yco of a local anesthetic to ensure that the procedure is pain-free. Next, he will place the Ellacor automated handpiece on the skin as it punches in a 10 x 10 mm area with hollow fine needles. The needles will “core” the skin, removing tiny plugs of skin as the handpiece is moved over the treatment area. After Dr. Yco is finished coring the skin, he will gently cleanse it before applying a soothing serum. Treatment usually takes around 30 minutes.

Post-Op Care

Immediately after Ellacor treatments, you will notice swelling, redness, and some bruising. This is normal and should be resolved over the course of the next few days. Dr. Yco prefers that for the first 2 days, you are just use a gentle cleanser and hydrogen peroxide to remove crusts and cores, which may be left over from the procedure 3-4 times daily.  However, you may start using a protective ointment such as petroleum jelly or Aquaphor if your skin feels too dry. For optimal results, most patients need around 2-3 Ellacor procedures, each spaced one month apart.
