Advanced Skin Repair With Tomorrow’s Science
“Isis Skin & Body” is now “Elyssium Advanced Skin Care”
We originally chose the name Isis after the ancient Egyptian beauty goddess.
But recently, political conditions have twisted the meaning.
So we are now Elyssium, a place or condition of ideal happiness.
We have always and will always fulfill that promise:
To be a place where advanced Physician-directed services and products produce healthy, smooth skin – a place or condition of ideal happiness.
Welcome to Elyssium Advanced Skin Care.
At Elyssium Advanced Skin Care, we virtually turn back time to create healthy, smooth skin, through the most recent laser advancements. Just as a healthy body depends on proper diet and exercise, healthy skin depends on the production of natural elements within the skin combined with proper skin care. Through laser – the power of light – we can safely and non-invasively stimulate the sleeping mechanisms and chemicals in our skin needed to quickly and continually repair itself. At Elyssium Advanced Skin Care we combine the latest technology in skin enhancement with carefully selected physician-grade products to achieve beautiful results. Our clinic is physician-operated.
Conveniently located on Broadway at 41st Street, Elyssium Advanced Skin Care welcomes clients into an elegant, upscale, therapeutic environment. Each client’s medical and cosmetic concerns are treated with professional care and discretion.
THE POWER OF LIGHT
In the 1960s, science harnessed the power of light when it created LASER, a light beam so uniquely in phase with itself that it can be focused as precisely as a single wavelength. Since that time, laser has served the world in miraculous ways. A recent breakthrough application of this incredible power now makes it possible to naturally rejuvenate and repair damaged and depleted skin without redness or scarring. Elyssium Advanced Skin Care offers the very latest techniques and equipment employing the miracle of harnessed light.
At Elyssium Advanced Skin Care we believe that noninvasive methods represent safer and healthier alternatives for enhancing one’s appearance. Non-invasive treatments do not require the cutting of body parts (surgery), nipping or tucking, no injection of foreign substances, or any other invasive methods that may pose a health risk. There is no redness or scarring. Every client will be given an honest assessment of our ability to achieve their desired outcome as well as a review of alternative procedures available elsewhere. At Elyssium Advanced Skin Care it is our aim to achieve natural and lasting results without the risks of injections and surgery.
Until recently, only lighter skin tones could safely receive laser skin treatment, while suntanned or darker skin tones faced an unacceptable degree of risk. However, a dramatic breakthrough in light technology now enables Elyssium to service all who walk through our doors. This next generation of laser advancements, equipped with an optimal range of frequencies and longer wavelengths of light, allow for the safe and effective treatment of all skin tones. There is no surgery, redness or scarring, nothing to heal. Just results.
