Introduction

For 11 years, didoria medspa has established itself as a leading medical spa facility in Staten Island, NY. With over 40 years of combined experience, our dedicated staff has provided our clientele with innovative skin care and laser hair removal treatments in a safe and welcoming environment.

We offer a diverse array of safe and effective skin treatments, designed by trusted leaders in the medical spa industry to help improve your skin’s tone and firmness, remove blemishes and reduce wrinkles.

Medical spa treatments are specifically designed to be minimally invasive. However, if you are concerned about discomfort, we also offer a line of noninvasive skin treatments that are tailored to deliver positive, lasting results with minimal discomfort and down time.  We do not offer injections or fillers.  Dr. Russo’s philosophy is to stimulate your body’s own collagen to work for you.

No matter your need, our experienced aestheticians will provide you with a rejuvenating experience in a safe, clean and relaxing environment. What are you waiting for? Join us today for a newer, younger looking you!
