Ellman Cortex™ is the practical solution for your clients’ skin resurfacing needs.


The  Cortex™ dual wavelength complete skin resurfacing workstation provides the ultimate value to your practice.

Only the Cortex System provides access to both ablative wavelengths most often used for laser skin resurfacing: CO2 for deep, effective resurfacing for remarkable outcomes, and Erbium YAG for superficial resurfacing, an effective alternative to peels. No other system provides the flexibility of treating patients using CO2, Erbium or both.

“The dual heads (both Erbium and CO2) and the pricing of the Cortex System were very compelling. So far, I have found it intuitively easy to operate. Patients are very comfortable post-procedure, and the recovery is pretty easy, which is a big plus.”
—Dr. Heidi Worth, MD
Surgical Capability
The included surgical handpiece provides small,precise excisions with excellent hemostasis.

No Disposables
Ellman Cortex has the lowest cost of ownership of any equivalent device in the industry, including the value pricing of the unit itself and low service costs.


Erbium YAG (superficial resurfacing)

– Superficial Skin Resurfacing
– Fine Lines & Wrinkles
– Micro-Laser Peels

Extended Ablation Technology
Slightly longer pulse durations facilitate excellent results in an easily-controlled, superficial resurfacing system. Provides a low-downtime alternative to chemical peels, from light fruit acids (AHA) to moderate effect TCA peels.

The Er:YAG wavelength (2940nm) can generally be used without anaesthesia and on regions of the body that cannot be treated safely by many other resurfacing protocols, such as the back of the hands and peri-orbital areas.

Flexible Delivery of Energy
The lightweight ergonomic handpiece means less operator fatigue and less device repositioning to reach target areas.

High Repetition Rates (up to 10Hz) & Multiple Spot Sizes
High repetition rates allow faster treatments and quicker turnaround of the treatment room. The available spot sizes include 1.5, 3, and 6mm.

CO2 Fractional (deep resurfacing)

– Moderate Lines & Wrinkles
– Benign Pigmented Lesions & Dyschromia
– Acne Scars
– Skin Texture Flaws
– Deep Skin Resurfacing


Proven CO2 Technology
CO2 technology has over forty years of clinical documentation for use as a very reliable medical device.

Fractional Treatment Modality
Treatment with Sandstone™ Cortex™ fosters faster healing (shorter downtime) than traditional CO2 fully ablative treatments with equivalent, remarkable results.

Versatile Scanner
Choose from five shapes and six density options for 13–95% coverage. The 150 micron spot size enables treatment depths from 100–750 microns.

Flexible Treatment Options
Flexible treatment options allow treatment of a wide variety of conditions, from a small area of persistent dyschromia to a full-face resurfacing, and from deep perioral lines to fine periocular wrinkles.
