Searching across the internet for the elusive Dr Russo, ‘Leading Harley Street Derma Surgeon’, who has had more open and shut clinics than Sherlock Holmes had cases, I’ve found several comments in forums stating that he is leaving a trail of unpaid bills. His flagship Westfield store opened, then closed, apparantly with even the builders not seeing a penny. His Canary Wharf Clinic opened, then closed, sold quickly on to Sk:n. His Milan clinic? Well, what Milan clinic? Most intriguingly of all, his ‘Harley Street’ credentials don’t stand up – his London practice is listed at Devonshire Street. Not the same thing at all. So, while I’ve had no direct contact – other than heresay – with Dr Russo, I’d suggest buyer beware for now. Interestingly, his skin care range, reported on in Cosmetics Business Magazine in 2008, has never materialised, despite releases going out to press.
