I would like to welcome you to Vita Medical Spa and share more than 30 years of experience in general and cosmetic medicine.
Beauty medicine has become a rapidly evolving industry, oversaturated with multiple options and aggressive advertising. As a result, consumers are often confused, and even scared, to make a choice. One of the biggest concerns for clients looking for cosmetic procedures is fear of that ridiculous “plastic” look that is so common nowadays on TV. The same “frozen” foreheads and “fish” or “sausage” lips seem to be everywhere! In reality, 99 percent of clients simply want to look themselves, but just a little younger or refreshed- and this is exactly what I achieve. My clients repeatedly tell me how after their procedures, friends note that they look better, wondering if they got some haircut, started a diet, or are getting better sleep. This sort of result should be the goal of every cosmetic practitioner.
Another common misconception among clients is that pain and bruising are inevitable parts of any cosmetic procedure. During years of practice I have heard some horror stories about excruciating pain and disfigured “black and blue” faces. This should NOT happen. Pain shouldn’t be a part of these treatments. There are several ways to make the procedures painless; this includes ice, numbing creams, and even dental block. Most of the fillers are available with a numbing medication premixed. Any physician should provide adequate numbing for comfortable and minimally traumatic procedure. Also, if the doctor takes his time during the procedure, then bruising should be absent or very minimal.
And finally, this field of medicine involves a critical balance between clinical science and art. As such, the outcome of any cosmetic procedure is often directly proportional to the artistic vision of the doctor. A deep sense of correct proportion and aesthetic harmony is critical for success, and ensures avoiding the common “one size fits all” outcome. I have been involved with art since childhood, and have spent hours cultivating my skills in painting, drawing, and sculpting. Moreover, studying the works of masters like Rembrandt and Rubens has helped me to deeply understand facial and body proportions. I invite you to look at some of my paintings in our photo gallery. I find that I learn something new every day, not only from the magazines, media, and training seminars, but also from each and every client in my practice.
I welcome you to our friendly office. Feel free to share all your concerns and fears during our complimentary consultation. I hope that my unique experience, artistic vision and passion for excellence will enable me and my staff at Vita to make you look and feel your best!
I wanted to thank you so much for everything you have done for me. I am truly very happy with the results of your services and now that I have successfully completed certain procedures, I can honestly say you are amazing. When I started with you several years ago, I was very scared to try Laser Hair Removal for I thought it would be very painful, but your machine and technique made me very comfortable and I felt absolutely no pain. I am now hair free and so happy I made the decision to have Lase... Read more »

I have had Restylane before, but never under my eyes. I'm 44 and had an extremely tired and hollowed looking eyes. Dr. David Avakian has been my doctor for some time now and we spoke about my concerns. He was honest and up front, spent a lot of time telling me the cons and made sure I was prepared. Had it done over a month ago and loved the results at once ! I like Dr. Avakian's aesthetic eye, bedside manner, staff and most important his skills. Will definitely choose him for eye work when I nee... Read more »
"Dr. Avakian is by far the only DR. I would trust to alter anything on my face! His demeanor is so calm and he puts me at ease. I have been to top plastic surgeon in Queens for Juvederm injection and she left me with black bruises for two weeks. Dr. Avakian is extremely gentle and would never push anything on you! He explains what can happen and waits and waits until YOU decide! :) I have never had bruising or pain. I trust him, you will too! Vita spa and staff are the Best in Queens!!... Read more »

At age 65, I thought I had done everything possible to regain a more youthful appearance. I had recently undergone a facelift, eye surgery, and a hair plant procedure, and I was faithfully following a facial cream regimen. But still, the hollowing of my cheeks and the wrinkles on my forehead were tell-tale signs of aging, and I was not truly happy with my appearance. After literally one visit to Dr. Avakian, I had regained a youthful look I never thought I would ever see again. I just can’t ... Read more »
