Meet Elyssa

Meet Elyssa "El" McHugh, our dedicated Hydrafacial Master. Elyssa is a passionate medical esthetician and certified laser technician committed to helping her patients achieve their skin goals. Ever since she was young, she's been fascinated with everything related to skin, making her role more than just a profession but a true calling.

Elyssa is a certified ZO Expert with extensive knowledge of products and treatments. Among her favorite treatments are Microneedling, IPL, AviClear, and particularly Hydrafacials. Her commitment to skincare excellence was demonstrated when she earned her Hydrafacial Master Certificate in 2022, solidifying her position as a leading specialist in this field.

Being a Hydrafacial Master is not just about the title for Elyssa. One of the most fulfilling aspects of her job is guiding her patients through their skincare journeys and witnessing their transformations. Her expertise in Hydrafacials ensures that every patient receives the best possible results.

Elyssa firmly believes in the power of consistency in skincare, especially regarding Hydrafacials. She continually motivates her patients to stay the course, ensuring they achieve the skin results they desire. With Elyssa as your aesthetician, your skincare journey is in the hands of an expert who truly cares.

I always have the best experience when I step foot into ZO - the entire staff is friendly and super helpful! El has been my aesthetician for several years and has done wonders for my skin. I have also been seeing Mini for Botox and filler, and she does an incredible job of giving me natural results while making the process essentially painless.


El ❤️❤️❤️ You are the absolute best! I had an incredible experience from start to finish. Went in for microneedling, and my skin is flourishing. Dr. K was very kind during the FaceTime call, and the entire team was welcoming and accommodating. So clean and professional.


My skin has never looked better. I’m 58. I now get compliments on my skin. So happy I’ve followed Elyssa’s suggestions. I do exactly what she tells me to do. It’s so worth it!


I joined for the monthly hydrafacial/dermaplaning offer and I’m hooked. I have booked all of my appointments with Elyssa and I’ve been very impressed with her technique and expertise. I have incorporated a few of the ZO products into my skin care routine and I’m loving the results thus far. The amount of compliments I’ve received on my skin in the past few months further validate the effectiveness of the services and product line.

Elyssa did the best she’s ever done today! She always does great, but today she killed it!

I have started getting my ZO products sorted since July, when I first came to the US. Elyssa has been very helpful and good at sorting the right regimen for me using my existing ZO products. She patiently explained the rationale and advised me on the recommended routine/regimen. The manager as well is also very professional at explaining things, especially when I get initial reactions to the products (which is normal). They always give consideration to me so far if I have to make changes to my schedule. I would definitely recommend going to this place to avail of their services.🙂


Elyssa was amazing!! I thoroughly enjoyed my experience from start to finish! I 10/10 recommend her!!


Professional environment. The staff knows the ZO product very well. Elyssa is amazing. You should experience ZO Skin Center. You will love yourself for doing so!


Got a HydraFacial by El! It was GREAT! If you haven’t been to Zo Skin Centre, you need to! I will be back for more! 💙


My wife and I have had amazing experiences at ZO Houston. Elyssa, Sonia, Mini, Natasha & Sydney are the best in the business! Hydrafacials, botox, fillers and microneedling have produced excellent results. We look forward to continued visits with the best staff in the business.
