Face Forward



Many women want to look younger, but not at the risk of frozen face or that “she’s had work done” effect. Dr. Adam Messenger, who has pioneered several skin treatment techniques, has opened a Greenwich facility that focuses on natural-looking results. “People who see some of my clients say, ‘You look so good, so rested, what did you do?’” says Messenger, who is a physician at Greenwich Hospital and medical director of Euro Laser Services of Rye (often rated No. 1 in Westchester). Messenger has applied technology that helps patients heal from wounds and burns to achieve benefits on healthy skin. His medical facials involve a process called Dermato Electro Poration (DEP) that helps collagen penetrate the skin to improve firmness. While the results are not permanent, it’s a facial that clients often opt for before special events. For longer-lasting results, Messenger offers fillers such as Restylane to replenish volume. “I use hyaluronic acid fillers because it’s in our bodies and it’s natural. It’s very malleable, so I can sculpt it. That’s where the art comes in,” says Messenger, who has trained other doctors in his technique.

For lines between the eyebrows and crow’s feet, Messenger uses Botox and Dysport, which he also employs to treat migraines, tension headaches and bruxism (teeth grinding). For daily skin care, he advises women to skip the pricey eye creams: “You get half the amount for twice the cost,” he notes. Instead, he recommends a simple routine using two products, a collagen gel and a Vitamin C cream. His approach addresses people’s overall health, not just their skin, and his new facility is located within the medical offices Greenwich Gynecology. Messenger says, “My goal is to bring back the down-to-earth and humanistic part of medicine.”
