Leading Ladies 2017

Flavia Thornson and Sylvia Goncalco


Flavia Thornson and Sylvia Goncalo have been close friends for nearly 20 years. “We’re both passionate about helping people be confident and look their best,” says Flavia, owner of Avalon Medical Spa. A Brazil native, Flavia opened her first medical spa in New Bedford in 2011. “As registered nurses with extensive aesthetic training, we take a professional and medical approach,” Sylvia says. “We use a variety of progressive treatments and pharmaceutical grade products to achieve a beautiful and natural look.”

Avalon Medical Spa quickly gained a loyal following and reputation for its personalized service and state-of-the-art treatments, like Coolsculpting, laser hair removal and laser skin resurfacing. With a growing client base, Flavia expanded with a second location in Bristol in November. “Many of our clients were travelling from the East Bay,” Flavia points out. The Bristol location offers facial rejuvenation treatments such as Botox, fillers, chemical peels and facials in a private and modern office. As they approach their sixth year of business and sixth month in Bristol, Flavia and Sylvia are looking forward to offering unique specials to new clients. “It’s the best feeling when a client loves the outcome of their treatment,” Sylvia says. “We’re excited to help new clients enhance their natural beauty and feel their best inside and out.”
