In founding Russak+ Aesthetic Center my mission was to create a new therapeutic treatment paradigm to maintain and enhance healthy skin. Changes in skin appearance are the result of shifts within the body’s naturally occurring, optimized state. Traditionally aesthetic medicine has only addressed the skin surface imperfections without targeting the cause. At Russak Dermatology Aesthetic Center, we believe that changes in skin are a reflection of the body’s bioprocesses and state – if the source is not treated then the skin problem will be reoccurring.

Our customized, integrative care reexamines and treats skin’s changes through a holistic medical approach. We support skin repair and healing with advanced therapeutic modalities that provide a dual phase recalibration of internal and external bio-functions. From skin aging to body contouring, our scientifically validated treatments provide comprehensive correction and ongoing prevention to restore your skin and body’s natural health.

I invite you to discover our customized services – uniquely curated and developed for your skin needs.
