A message from Dr. Messina:
“My approach to rejuvenation is based on reversing the physiological changes that occur over time using my knowledge of physiology, medicine and surgery. My philosophy is natural is always in style and less is more meaning treating to a desired endpoint with a little product as possible. This philosophy results in a natural look.”

Our Philosophy Natural Is Always In Style
Facial rejuvenation is offered at multiple practices, spas and salons across Long Island.
So, what sets us apart from all the others? First, over 35 years of injectable experience. Second, we offer continuity of care. Moreover, meeting the same physician for all your treatments gives you continuity. In other words, a doctor who knows you and your specific needs and requirements.
It may not seem that significant however, having one practitioner who knows you makes all the difference in the world when it comes to achieving consistent results.
We only use genuine FDA approved products.
Some practices contain costs by purchasing products from foreign countries. Importing circumvents the FDA and is not only dangerous but illegal.
Commonly imported items include:
- Chemical Peels
It is perfectly normal to desire a youthful appearance. Prolonging youth has been a goal through history and now with advances in aesthetic medicine more obtainable than ever before.
Hyaluronic acid fillers with their ease of administration and high safety profile coupled with neuromodulatiors like Botox and Dysport mean your youthful appearance can be achieved with minimal downtime.
However, the abundance of products to enhance facial features can create an environment where one over corrects and area. We see this in celebrities and friends who suddenly have hamster cheeks and huge lips . This is a deterrent to many patients who do not wish to look overdone.
Patients often are afraid to begin a dermal filler regimen because the see people that are overdone, people with over inflaited lips resulting in a duck like appearance. However, that is not a necessary outcome. Overfilling is due to over administering a specific product.
We believe natural is always in style. So how do we get natural looking results? The answer is simple, just use enough filler to restore lost volume and nothing more. When you restore lost volume the results are natural, at times we ask for a photograph from a decade ago even a high school photo and restore the volumes to their natural state and patients love the results.
