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!
