“I had a Sofwave treatment with Sabrina a few months ago. It worked wonders, ensuring I looked fabulous for my recent trip to China. The results have lasted, leaving my skin tight and beautiful. Sabrina's professionalism, care and gentle approach throughout the treatment were exceptional. I will definitely be returning to her for future treatments!“

MedSpa Patient

“I have had a recent breast augmentation with Dr. Russo. He and his team made me so comfortable throughout the entire process....Consultation to Post Op. I felt so comfortable with their process because of how calm, confident and organized they were. Day of operation was the most stress free day I could have imagined for what I was going through with. I would highly recommend over and over again. A special thanks to Angelina for being realistic with me throughout my initial consultation, Maddie & Rachel for helping me make important decisions before surgery, answering all my questions and "what ifs", being by my side during and after surgery and Arlene for all the back and forth on the phone. Amazing team they have right here.“


“I recently had lip filler and Botox with nurse Lauren, and I am beyond happy with the results! She did an excellent job at making me feel comfortable getting filler for the first time. She was informative and took the time to listen to my overall goal, and achieved the exact natural look that I desired. I cannot say enough great things about Lauren and the entire staff at Dr. Russo’s. Highly recommend!“


“I’ve been getting Botox for many years now and was so impressed with Brittani. No one has ever taken the time to thoroughly go over what my goals and needs are, nor, so thoughtfully explained how to achieve my needs. I am so happy with my results and will recommend her to all my friends. She is a miracle worker.“


“The staff is exceptional and offers each person a unique and one of the best experiences you can imagine. They are kind, understanding and supportive. They listen to your needs, and I mean truly listen to your needs.“


“I’ve seen Sabrina and cannot speak more highly of her abilities and expertise. She really understands the needs of her clients and offers suggestions and ideas that meet my needs.“


“If you're looking for a real true personalized session then this is the place for you.“


“My wife recently had a procedure done with Dr. Russo and his team, and my wife looks absolutely beautiful, plus she's thrilled about the results. Being on the sidelines supporting my wife throughout the process, I wanted to show my appreciation to Dr. Russo, Nurse Rachel and Nurse Maddie.“


“Dr. Russo and his team were so attentive, caring and extremely professional. I was just blown away by the time Dr. Russo spent with my wife throughout the entire process, because it’s very rare to see in today's climate. If your wife is thinking about having a procedure done, you absolutely have to check out Dr. Russo and his team, you'll feel like you're the only patient on the planet!“


“Passing by to thank the doctor and his entire team for all the care, patience and respect for me. I really want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for doing everything the way I asked, with all your professionalism and dedication. I didn't just have surgery, I made a dream come true and yes he gave me that ❤️❤️❤️ I'm only a month after surgery and I'm feeling beautiful as ever. Many thanks to the whole team. I am always pleasantly greeted by the receptionist. Both Brittani and Lindsey are great and give solid advice about skin care that is tailored to the individual patient.“


“I’ve been seeing Lindsey religiously for diamond glow facials since Fall 2021. The transformation my skin has made is remarkable. Between regular facials and the consistent skin care regimen, my skin is the best it’s ever looked. I’ve gotten to the point that my skin is so clear, even and bright I feel comfortable leaving the house with a little concealer under my eyes and that’s it! I no longer need to wear foundation and might wear a tinted moisturizer if I’m going out to dinner or an event but that’s the extent of it.“


“Sheila at Dr. Russo's is amazing. She is so passionate about her work, is always explaining things and makes you feel so comfortable during your laser treatments!“


“4 months post-op for breast augmentation and I couldn’t be happier. One of the best decisions I have ever made. Totally changed my self-confidence and life! Thank you Dr. Russo & wonderful staff!


“Dr. Russo is talented! I just had Botox and Voluma and already look younger and more well-rested. I highly recommend him.”


“Best decision I ever made!! I tell everyone about Dr. Russo and staff!! Thank you so much for everything! Such a wonderful experience all around!”


“Not only did he take his time and helping me choose the perfect size for my body he made me feel so comfortable and my decision and he is also had great side bed man and everything he did I feel was his only concern was how I was doing his talks before and after surgery can’t me come and I fully understood what was going to happen and what to expect."


“I am very pleased with the results of my procedure and it has changed my life in a wonderful way. Thank you Dr. Russo.”


“Thank you does not even cut it. My life has changed so much. My clothes fit, I am still smoke-free, but most important my SELF ESTEEM has sky rocketed. I am no longer trying to hide behind my clothes or making excuses. I cannot thank you enough. I am forever grateful.”


“Thank you to Dr. Russo and his amazing team for helping me look and feel my best this year. Although my year as Miss NH USA is coming to an end this weekend, I will be a patient for life! Thank you for all that you have done for me.”


“I want everyone to know that my long-standing relationship with you has been an amazing trip – you are a true artist in the cosmetological field. When you create your art, you have the insight to know exactly what to do with your medical craft. An artist understands beyond what he sees, he also understands the mathematical perspective of his art. In his art he pours his inner soul’s longing for perfection and too, for others to admire his artistry.


"In this way, he fulfills his GOD GIVEN TALENT and understands the meaning of his existence. I want you to know, how much I respect your work. I wear it every day, and, it is shared with others, who in essence can appreciate a true artist. I am also ever grateful that God was generous enough to place me in your hands. Your hands and your gift are such a blessing to many of your patients. For me, there is no one like you, and my heartfelt thanks for adding so much beauty to my life. Forever grateful, your patient and friend always…Bravo, Baci e tanto grazie!”


Dr. Russo and his staff are amazing! They made me feel so comfortable and guided me through the whole process. Even though my parents were upset I got the breast augmentation done, they were happy that I went to such a great surgeon. He has a wonderful bedside manner and is all around a nice guy. I was unsure of what size to go with, but he helped me find the perfect size that fits my body. He is extremely smart and knows what he’s doing, but doesn’t have the pompous attitude that other surgeons do. I highly recommend going to him if you consider getting any plastic surgery done!”


"When I felt any discomfort he had me come right into the office and fix whatever was bothering me he’s an amazing doctor and really understands the body and knows what to do I would highly recommend him from anything from Botox to breast augmentation. I cannot think the nurses and staff as well they were so kind and kept me calm anything I needed they were all right there what a perfect place to have any surgery completed I just wanted to think for everything that you have done for me it would change my confidence my outlook on life as only being a 30-year-old woman thank you very much Dr. Joseph Russo a appreciate everything you have done”
