Is laser dangerous?
Our Cutera Lasers are safe and noninvasive. There is virtually no redness, swelling or harmful physical side-effects. Any laser procedure may, on extremely rare occasion, create a superficial burn or small blister that generally goes away quickly and without scarring.
Can you really do something about acne scarring?
Yes. We can dramatically reduce the depth of acne scarring, and often remove all traces of it, depending on the severity and location. This is done using a combination of modalities as recommended by your laser specialist or physician. Often, treatment of acne scarring will involve a combination of laser Genesis and Advanced Chemical Peels.
Can you treat other types of scars?
Yes. We treat all sorts of scars, with varied high degrees of success, depending on the depth and severity of the scars. We are proud of our high success rate in improving the appearance of a variety of scars.
Are all laser clinics pretty much the same?
No. Each laser clinic is only as good as its equipment, staff, expertise and oversight. Elyssium Advanced Skin Care is independently owned and operated by our Physician Medical Director. Elyssium is not a franchise. We have been in business since 2004 and have served hundreds of pleased clients over the years. In fact, we are proud to say that our best source of new clients is recommendations from our current clients. At Elyssium we feature technology for safe and effective laser hair and vein removal, treatment of pigmentation issues, acne and acne scarring, as well as anti-aging procedures for ALL skin tones. We take pride in our ability to treat darker skin tones and have become respected and trusted in this regard. Our staff is exceptional in its knowledge, skills and application, and participate in ongoing training with our medical director. Additionally, our laser specialists do not work on commission, and are encouraged to educate and inform clients about the best procedure for them without engaging in high-pressure sales. In fact, we encourage all clients to think about the information presented to them and make informed decisions at their own pace. We individualize treatment plans for our clients and strive for 100% satisfaction!
Does the Physician do all the procedures?
No. Laser treatment in most laser clinics in California are typically conducted by a Registered Nurse. Most laser procedures are routine for well-trained RN’s and it is not necessary that they be performed by a physician. At Elyssium, we have a Physician Medical Director who has created our treatment protocols and therapeutic regimens and oversees clinical activities. She also provides extensive training to all Elyssium staff. In fact, Elyssium is becoming known for it’s advanced training programs in laser and medical esthetics. Our Medical Director is always available to consult with our laser specialists and will evaluate and treat clients as appropriate. Many laser clinics have minimal or no physician involvement. We encourage you to inquire about physician medical director involvement at any laser center you are considering. A physician medical director is a requirement of all laser centers in the state of California. Any laser center should be able to give you their doctor’s information (name, specialty, board certification, etc.) , describe their level of involvement, and explain their protocol in the event that there is an adverse reaction or complication.
What are the qualifications of a laser specialist?
California law requires that a laser specialist hold at least the degree of Registered Nurse (RN) (in other states, estheticians are allowed to perform these procedures). All RN’s at Elyssium have gone through extensive training under our medical director and are highly skilled and experienced.
How long have you been doing these procedures?
Elyssium has been in business since December 2004. However, our Medical Director has studied and trained on laser aesthetic procedures since 1999. At Elyssium we only employ highly trained and conscientious nurses to perform aesthetic treatments. Our nurses have extensive experience performing a variety of laser procedures and other aesthetic services.
