Vanquish ME

Vanquish ME is a huge breakthrough in the new age of bloodless liposuction. First introduced in New York by leading plastic surgeons, the technology gained high acclaims for its extraordinary results. The novelty of the therapy is that it achieves apoptosis (controlled death) of the fat cells with the use of high power Radiofrequency waves, but without actually touching the skin. Vanquish ME is applied from a distance of one centimeter of the skin, in the areas, permanently dissolving the fat from large areas of the body (like the abdomen and thighs) symmetrically, painlessly and touch-free. The Vanquish Me technology uses two specially designed devices, one for the abdomen and one for the thighs area.

How does it work?

Once the patient lies comfortably, the special applicator of the device is set one centimeter above the abdominal abdominal are or thighs, totally and symmetrically embracing it. Vanquish ME emits high power Radiofrequency waves in the entire area, creating a unified field around the body, which scans the fat from all sides. Due to the Radiofrequency waves, the temperature of the fat tissue rises, reaching up to forty-five degrees - the temperature where the fat cells dissolve. The fat cells that are destroyed in every session will be eliminated naturally by the body during the next hours and days, through the lymphatic system.

What does it target?

The Vanquish ME therapy is targeting the problem of local fat it. It treats the most common problem for both men and women, that of ”stubborn” local fat, in a way that is fast, efficient and comfortable.

What are the results?

Using Vanquish ME, a large amount of fat cells is being destroyed in every session. You will lose centimeters in the troubled areas and the problem of the local fat is being permanently tackled, a process aided by the simultaneous adoption of a healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet, monitored by the AVRA nutritionist. Since the therapy destroys the fat cells, instead of only shrinking them, the result is permanent, as fat cells are not reborn during adult life.

Does it hurt?

The Vanquish ME is a very safe, painless procedure causing no scars or bruises during or after the therapy. Since there are no nerve endings in the fat, no heat may be sensed and at the skin level, due to intense blood flow, the temperature of approximately 45 degrees is usually perceived as a pleasant, mellow heat, resembling a hot bath. The whole procedure is non-invasive, contactless, and requires no recovery time. You can easily have the treatment during your lunch break, and return to your daily activities immediately.

How many treatments are needed?

In average 4-6 sessions are sufficient, with visible results already after the first treatment. Sessions may be performed every 7-10 days, since the organism needs, during this period, to naturally eliminate the dead fat cells. Hydration of the patient is vital throughout the entire process, before, after and during all the sessions. The Vanquish ME body reshaping session takes only 45 minutes, making it easy to squeeze into your busy program.

Are the results permanent?

The body remains symmetrical and the problem of local fat does not reoccur, even in the case of weight gain after the therapy. The Radiofrequency waves also stimulate the production of collagen causing the skin to tighten up and thus also tackle the problem of loose skin. Patients do witness loss of centimeters in every session, but the results become even more obvious around 2 to 3 months after the last treatments. Our AVRA in-house nutritionist will provide a free nutritional plan and monitoring in order to support you in maintaining your results long term.

Exilis Elite

Award winning Exilis Elite represents today the best solution for a total body and face makeover, as a noninvasive, pain-free alternative to plastic surgery. It uses the most advanced technology of ultrasound and Radiofrequency for body shaping, skin tightening and facial rejuvenation.

How does it work?

Through ultrasound and continuously pulsating monopolar Radiofrequency, combined with a special cooling system, this technology dilutes fat cells and cellulite, while also stimulating collagen and elastin production, with results visible from the first session.

How is the treatment done?

While you lie on a comfortable bed, the therapist applies a special patch on your skin, to determine the depth at which the Radiofrequency waves must operate in order to obtain the desired result. The therapist applies mineral oil on the treated area and presses the machine applicator gently on the skin, making circular movements. The special, technical movements combined with the appropriate pressure for the specific therapy are being performed by our trained aestheticians taking into consideration each patient’s skin condition and desired result. By reaching a high temperature at the deeper layers of the skin, the fat cells are diluted, while fibroblasts are stimulated to produce more collagen. Exilis Elite uses two applicators, one for the face and one for the body.

What problems does it solve?

Being recognized by top specialists as the perfect solution for tightening, lifting and sculpting the body, while assisting the process of fat burning, the therapy with Exilis Elite works in a perfect combination with Vanquish ME, providing a total solution for reshaping and sculpturing the entire body, from head to toe.
Due to the machine’s architecture, it is suitable for treating small areas of the body, especially the ones that can’t be shaped through diet and exercise. Exilis Elite is recommended for fat reduction and skin tightening in areas of the body such as arms, knees, back, thighs and breast.

What are the results?

After each Exilis Elite session, fat cells are diluted, while skin gets tightened due to collagen production stimulation. Depending on the treated area, you will notice a loss of centimeters, not necessarily of body weight, since the treatment works at a cellular level, shaping the targeted area. Skin tightening will be visible after the first sessions, with even more visible results three weeks after the last treatment, when the body will have had enough time to adjust to the treatment. Exilis Elite aims at targeting the fat, while simultaneously tightening and lifting the skin and creating a long lasting result.

Are the results permanent?

The fat cells that are destroyed during this process cannot regenerate. For this reason, you will notice that even if you might gain weight in the future, the treated area of the body will remain in a harmonious shape. Regarding skin tightening, due to the stimulation of collagen production, the effects will persist for at least one year. For even longer lasting results, it is recommended that you follow up with a maintenance session every six months. A healthy lifestyle and balanced diet are necessary to achieve the best possible results and to sustain them over a long period of time.

How many treatments are needed?

In order to obtain the optimal results, a treatment cycle of 4-6 sessions is recommended, depending on your body type, evaluation and the treated area. In order for the body to best respond to the treatment with Exilis Elite, sessions must be scheduled every one or maximum two weeks.

Does it hurt or leave scars?

The Exilis Elite treatment is completely noninvasive and painless. Using an innovative technology, deeper levels of the skin are heated when it targets the fat, while outer layers of the skin are being heated and cooled simultaneously when the aim is skin tightening and rejuvenation. This procedure is painless and you will only experience a feeling of a warm embrace in the treated area.

X-Wave

Recognised as one of the most efficient machines for body contouring, X-Wave uses the powerful energy of acoustic waves for the treatment of cellulite, scars and stretch marks. By removing fat cells and by breaking down the fibrous bands that create a dimpling effect on the skin, X-Wave can effectively remove cellulite even in its most advanced states. X-Wave is clinically proven to be a non-invasive, fast, painless treatment that can rejuvenate the skin and soft tissues and help combat the appearance of cellulite, loose skin and stretch marks in just a few of weeks.

How is the treatment done?

While you lie down comfortably, the AVRA therapist uses the X-Wave applicator on the troubled area. The machine makes a vibrational motion, pulsating on the skin and muscles with a powerful, yet painless movement. X-Wave stimulates the lymphatic vascular system, reducing edema and eliminating the lipids from the subdermal fat cells. At the same time, the acoustic wave energy induces the proliferation of fibroblasts which create a new, thickened band of collagen.

What problems does it solve?

X-Wave produces effective, fast results in the treatment of cellulite (levels 1,2,3). By stimulating blood circulation and the production of collagen fibers, X-Wave is also successful in the treatment of soft marks and uneven scars, improving the skin elasticity.

What are the results?

Following each X-Wave session, you will experience a growth of new capillaries in the treated area and an increase of microcirculation, oxygen supply and metabolic rate. Blood circulation and collagen production are intensely stimulated, while the tissue relaxes and tightens. Cellulite becomes less and less visible and the skin becomes tighter and smoother.

How many treatments are needed?

Every X-Wave session lasts around 7-10 minutes per area and can be performed daily, if needed. In order to obtain the best results, a minimum treatment cycle of 4-6 sessions is needed and skin improvement will continue in the following 2 to 3 months.

Does it hurt?

The X-Wave procedure is noninvasive and painless. You will only feel a light sculpting movement on the skin, comparable to the feeling of a less effective anti-cellulite massage.

Lymphastim

Lymphastim represents a technologically advanced solution for enhancing lymphatic flow and blood circulation, while evacuating residuals and achieving a relief of edema, neuropathy or heavy leg syndrome. Combined with other AVRA treatments, Lymphastim accelerates their effects while simultaneously aiding the body to purify itself.

How is the treatment done?

You will be wearing a special Lymphastim costume consisting of a pair of trousers or special sleeves. While you lie down comfortably, the Velcro costume inflates and deflates, pressing and releasing the skin and muscles. Through this movement, the lymphatic flow in peripheral and deep lymph nets is stimulated. This helps in the evacuation of metabolic residuals from the interstitial spaces and enhances an immunological system response.

What problems does it solve?

In our AVRA protocols, Lymphastym is usually combined with the X-Wave, Exilis Elite and Vanquish ME treatments, improving their effects by accelerating the elimination of destroyed fat cells. Lymphastim is also recognized for improving a series of conditions such as: edema, heavy-leg syndrome, body pain (neuropathy, neuralgia), diabetic angiopathy, acrocyanosis, arthrosys and gout.
Lymphastim is efficient in post-liposuction recovery, assisting the muscle tissue regenerate and regain its elasticity.

What results do we see?

Lymphastim improves blood circulation and the the lymphatic flow, and supports the weight loss process. The overall effects that can be noticed are a tightened skin and body, and a general state of wellbeing.

How many treatments are needed?

The number of treatment sessions varies according to the issue at hand. A minimum of 4-6 sessions is usually recommended, since Lymphastim is usually used after each of the other body treatments.

Does it hurt?

Lymphastim is a noninvasive, painless procedure. During the treatment you will wear a Velcro costume, which inflates and deflates, creating a press and release movement. During the Lymphastim procedure you will only feel a soft, relaxing pressure.

Jet Peel

JetPeel’s patented technology offers a multi-step face and body treatment system that combines the benefits of an all natural hydrodermabrasion, a chemical peel, automated painless extractions and a gentle infusion of European skin nutrients, that include plant-derived Stem Cells, Antioxidants, Hyaluronic Acid and Peptides.

How does it work?

Jet Peel combines oxygen with a liquid such as water, anesthetic or skin nutrients to create a jet stream of micro-droplets. Reaching a supersonic velocity of up to 720 km/h, this powerful yet gentle jet stream can be used to exfoliate the skin’s surface without causing any irritation. Through contactless penetration of the skin at a depth of 4.5 mm, JetPeel technology can then be used as a dermal nutrient infusion addressed to a variety of skin conditions.

What does it target?

Jet Peel offers great results for all skin problems and it is appropriate for every type of skin, at any age and in any season. It can be used to treat sun-damaged skin, age spots, acne scars, as well as for hand and décolleté rejuvenation. Jet Peel is the only device that performs comedone (blackheads) extractions in a touch free manner, without irritating the area around the blackhead, as a classic extraction procedure would do.

How long does a session last?

A complete Jet Peel facial treatment takes between 45 and 60 minutes. After the treatment, it is recommended to protect the skin using a professional sunscreen, such as the ones found in the PCA Skin range.

What are the steps of a Jet Peel session?

Initially the patient undergoes a thorough facial evaluation by a specialized dermatologist in order to choose a personalized protocol. After the make up is removed, the Jet Peel supersonic jet with Saline water and Oxygen is used to deeply cleanse the skin, while simultaneously performing a lymphatic drainage. The feeling is similar to a cryotherapy session and the cooling effect stimulates blood circulation and improves skin hydration.
After eliminating the dead cells, the skin is ready for the nutrients’ infusion. Using the Jet Peel, vitamins (such as A+E, B5, C and hyaluronic acid) and Complex formulas penetrate the skin in a non-invasive and touch-free manner, reaching a skin depth of 4.5 mm – as proven by the University of Leipzig, Germany. This stimulates the synthesis of collagen and elastin and the creation of new cells. It also improves the appearance of the skin and smoothens the wrinkles.

What are the results?

Jet Peel treatments are highly effective in the improvement of skin texture, wrinkle reduction, removal of unwanted pigmentation and overall skin rejuvenation. It is also recommended for treating acne, blackheads and other comedone eruptions as it quickly and effortlessly removes them without any pain or discomfort.

Does it hurt or irritate the skin?

The Jet Peel dermabrasion is a pleasant, easy procedure and a painless therapy with quick and amazing results. At each session, the skin benefits from hydration, oxygenation, lymphatic drainage and cryotherapy. The dead cells of the epidermis are being eliminated, the dilated pores reduced, lines and wrinkles are softened out. Simultaneously, scars from acne are being tackled successfully, while the skin is totally rejuvenated remaining healthy and shinny. The therapy does not cause any long-term irritation or exfoliation of the skin. You can resume your daily activity right after the treatment.

PCA Skin

PCA Skin, used in our AVRA chemical peel treatments, is today’s leader in chemical peels. For more than 25 years, PCA SKIN has been creating the best and most innovative professional treatments in the industry. Endorsed and promoted by the American Association of Facial Plastic Surgery, PCA Skin is offering the new age chemical peels, which stimulate the rebirth of cells through a combination of various beneficial acids, without injuring the skin. Being applied professionally and in correct doses, these peels are tailor made to the needs of every face. In other words, therapy is totally personalized. PCA chemical peels rejuvenate the skin and tackle even the most demanding problems. We no longer use an essence, which causes aggressive exfoliation, but rather a variety of active ingredients and acids that are being adapted to the needs of every skin type.

How does it work?

Peeling is a form of exfoliation. When your skin peels or flakes after a treatment, your skin is shedding dead or damaged surface cells and revealing new, healthy skin cells on the surface. This procedure is called “cell turnover”. Supporting the cell turnover process with chemical peels is what allows the skin to shed dead cells and bring new, fresh skin to the surface, free of signs of aging, sun damage, dirt and debris. The result is a glowing skin. You won’t necessarily experience any visible peeling. This doesn’t mean your treatment was ineffective. Everyone experiences different levels of peeling, dependent on their skin type, resilience, type of peel and the number of layers applied. Some people experience ‘sheeting,’ where large portions of the skin peel off at once. Some experience ‘flaking,’ where small pieces of skin peel off, similar to dry, winter skin or a mild peeling after sunburn. Others experience exfoliation that is not visible. If you don’t peel, your skin is still exfoliating. In this case, the exfoliation is happening on a cellular level that can’t be seen by the naked eye. Typically, the deeper the peel you receive, the more extensive peeling you will experience. Consult our PCA Certified Professionals to find out what type of peel is best for your skin

What problems does it solve?

The perfected formulas in PCA SKIN improve skin conditions such as: visible aging, acne, skin discolorations, hyperpigmentation and other sensitive skin conditions. For each skin type and concern there is a special treatment formula, which increases the skin’s cell turnover rate, bringing new skin cells to the surface, reducing signs of fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots and clearing breakouts.

What are the results?

Professionally applied peel solutions exfoliate dead skin cells and help healthy skin cells rise to the surface. These treatments allow for deeper layers of fresh and untouched skin to be revealed. The result of constant, monthly treatments can even skin tone, clear acne, improve the appearance of aging skin and make dull complexions glow. The perfect number of therapies varies depending on the problem, but 2-3 applications are generaly reccomended by AVRA estheticians as part of a targeted therapy.

Does it hurt?

Peels are easy to work into a busy lifestyle. There is no downtime with PCA SKIN chemical peels — you’ll leave your appointment with a healthy glow and able to carry on with your regular activities. There are some steps to ensure that your results are maximized. Following a post-procedure regimen recommended by the PCA Certified Professionals at AVRA will enhance your results and keep peeling and redness to a minimum. You should also avoid anything that causes sweating for 24 hours after treatment. Our specialists will give you more detailed instructions after your procedure, catered to your skin’s needs.

How many treatments are needed?

From the first application, the skin becomes shiny and has a healthy glow, it breathes and it feels and looks fresh and clean. The perfect number of therapies varies depending on your skin’s specific needs, but 2-3 applications are generally enough for good results. After the therapy you may return immediately to your activities, without traces or red spots, but rather with a smooth and beautiful skin.
