Elysa's personal suffering with chronic, cystic acne sparked her interest in skincare. While embarking on her career as a makeup artist, Elysa also began her career as a paramedical Aesthetician. After completeing her education at the respected Dermalogica Institute in NJ, Elysa worked with the prestigeous Peer Group Plastic Surgery Center. There, she worked with seven plastic surgeons providing medical-grade chemical peels. Elysa is certified in Obagi, Bio-Medic and Neostrata Skincare. Her focus in skincare is founded on finding solutions for those suffering from chronic conditions such as acne, rosacia, hyper-sensitive skin, scarring and aging. She is very experienced with deep penetrating acids & enzyme peels. Elysa has a strong understanding of who will benefit from which product and who will not. Skincare products are similiar to perscriptions. An excellent product can produce non-existant or damaging results if it is incorrectly prescribed and used.
The number of treatments needed and the intensity & frequency of the treatments varies depending on the individual. Consultations are needed to access the exact course of action.
Elysa uses Jessners, TCA, glycolic, salycilic, hyaluronic and lactic acid peels coupled with microdermabrasion and deep exfoliation treatments. She also works closely with nutritionists, allergists and doctors to not only treat the problem, but to find the source. Once the catalyst is determined, most can maintain a minimalistic, home-based program.
Peels vary in cost from $85 to $450. Discounted packages are offered once a treatment plan is determined.
