Dr Ana Cristina Santos Silva
AVENUE CLINIC is a space which has been created with you in mind and the aim of enhancing your natural beauty through the way you present yourself, and also through the way you feel. I believe that this is my mission and I will do everything to fulfill it.
I have always had a special interest in beauty in general. After completing the Integrated Master’s in Pharmaceutical Sciences I was faced with the prospect of doing research, teaching in universities and becoming technical director in pharmacies. In my search for Caring, I instead enrolled in a second Degree in Integrative Medicine. But it was only with my first training in Aesthetic Medicine, 14 years ago in London, that I instinctively knew where my calling lay. Since then, I have attended courses and trainings with the best experts in the field worldwide, in order to progressively improve and update my practice.
Consciousness, rigour and naturalness are adjectives that best describe my work over the last 11 years. I believe and practice every day an holistic approach to non-surgical facial rejuvenation, which aims to restore the face as a whole, rather than focusing on individual areas. Taking into account the individuality of each face, I use my artistic eye and a “less is more” approach to naturally achieve a symmetrical and harmonious result.
Dr Bernardo Pimentel
Paying close attention to my own skin, to that of others and a permanent interest for news in this area have been a constant throughout my life. Having suffered from acne and carrying several scars from it, this interest of mine has only been stimulated as it was expressing itself in action.
Within the range of skin, hair and nail diseases covered by Dermatology, I have dedicated myself more to its aesthetic side, and I can assure that we are equipped with the best and most advanced technology in this regard, namely in terms of Lasers, every day more more indispensable in this field of expertise. As Clinical Director of AVENUE CLINIC, I aim to provide our clients the most innovative treatments, with the most adequate solutions to their concerns, without using invasive proceedures. I am motivated by the belief that a person, being a patient or not, will feel uplifted if his outside image has improved and is visible to himself and others.
Dr Leandro Silva
I have always considered Medicine as a challenge and within it Dermatology as one of its most complex areas. I believe in the power that lies in improving a dermatological condition (such as for instance acne, rosacea, melasma or alopecia) not only because of its aesthetic purpose but also for the expected impact it has on the quality of life.
At AVENUE CLINIC I dedicate my work to the areas of Trichology (hair diseases) and Laser, using methods and tools which are as non-invasive as possible. Likewise, I aim to promote customized health and to fight aging as a means to achieve well-being.
Dr Solange Nascimento
My path is best defined by a delivery commitment. As a Pharmacist, I tried to actively listen to all my clients in order to understand exactly what they felt and how I could translate their problems and frustrations into the most suitable solutions for each and every one of them. Given the opportunity Dr Cristina extended to me, furthermore in a place like AVENUE CLINIC which mirrors my motivations and philosophies, I saw the chance to expand and cement my approach. It is a privilege to listen to and treat each person who enters this Clinic, to promote and to bring out the best in themselves and to watch this evolution as an agent of change.
Dr Luciana Puzziello
With a medical degree taken in São Paulo, I specialised in Gynaecology and Obstetric and continued my studies in the field of infertility, with several specialisations. I believe that a Woman's intimate health is a key point in her feeling better about herself, more healthy and therefore, happier and more self-confident.
Dr Cristiana Ferradaz
I have always been passionate about Science, understanding Life and the Universe on a fundamental level.
I’ve started as a resident anesthesiologist. Feeling that that was not my path, I took a Master’s in Human Nutrition and Metabolism from NOVA Medical School and later a postgraduate degree in Functional Medicine from The Institute for Functional Medicine in the US. My vision about Life and Health has since gained new contours but it was the challenge laid down by Dr. Cristina that I started consultations at AVENUE CLINIC, that best defined my purpose.
Functional Medicine seeks the cause of disease and dysfunction by looking at the genetic, physiological, emotional and spiritual factors that determine it. This is how I see Health and how I approach those who come to me so that I help them find their physical, emotional and spiritual balance.
Dr Melanie Ferro
From an early age I was influenced to develop a taste for art, culture and aesthetics. But it was with my patients, as a physician in General and Family Medicine, that I have realized how Beauty and the maintenance of self-esteem go beyond a mere, superficial standard, being extremely important for the management of an individual's psychic balance.
Combining my natural taste for caring for others and for art, Aesthetic Medicine blends with Preventive Healthcare in order to enable social, family and work reintegration of a person.
My commitment at AVENUE CLINIC is to promote the well-being of our clients in a customized way, offering them high quality care and services as well as aesthetics and health solutions.
Dr Miguel Stapleton
I'm inspired by the balance of facial features and the proportion of the face since a very early age. I spent a lot of time drawing faces until I discovered makeup and being able to create illusions of light and shadow for a more harmonious and proportionate face. After finishing my dental medicine course, doing facial harmonizations encouraged me to pursue more natural results that can have a profound effect on the self-esteem of those who seek them. AVENUE CLINIC's mission is in line with my values and it's a project I've believed in since I met it.
Dr Margarida Cerineu
My interest in facial and body aesthetics started with self-care. From a very young age I have developed a huge taste for cosmetics and health. A quest for excellence and beauty that has been enhanced in my life by music, writing and travel.
The love for Aesthetic Medicine came to existence with the current comprehensive concept of beauty which includes health and well-being. A concept that allows me to touch the lives of all those I treat, in order to build a state of serenity when they watch themselves. That gives me a deep feeling of satisfaction for the work I have been doing since 2013. AVENUE CLINIC's atmosphere and values merge entirely with this personal mission of transforming lives.
I trust all my aestetic medicine facial care only to the hands of Doctor Ana Cristina Santos Silva and dermatologist and good friend, Bernardo Pimentel. With them, I've retouched, balanced and changed all that was in less harmony. Initially with Doctor Cristina who, with all her dedication, grace and professionalism, was an utmost important pillar in my self-love and self-respect process. Living with eating and body dismorphic disorders it was but a miracle and a previlege to be able to push away those demons, thanks to the care of someone so wise and sensible. I flew in from London on purpose for the proceedures that, with all moderation, Cristina began to present and introduce me too. After 30 years, I've finally started to like the face I saw at the mirror. I never thought it to be possible.

I have but to thank Doctor Cristina for being so nice and professional. She is the only one I recommend when the topic is skincare and aesthetic treatments. She's the best!
Bárbara Lourenço , actress
After my first session with Doctor Cristina, I felt huge improvements in the quality of my skin's grain, only after two or three days. After one week, my skin's natural glow is extraordinary. What Doctor Cristina does, from the height of her long experience and her extense knowledge is to adapt the right treatment to each individual case. This "listening" is what sets and defines the basis to this success.
Joana Barrios, actress
I have been following Dr. Ana Cristina's work for many years, I admire her delicacy and attention to detail at all times. The results she achieves are natural and precise and remind me of Haute Couture.
Susana Chaves, Beauty Editor
I trust all of my facial treatments in the rigorous and professional care of Dra Cristina.
Catarina Gouveia , actress
My experience with Dra Cristina has always been a wonderful one. Total availability to listen and understand my concerns and total dedication in the care she puts in my skincare treatments. Her evaluation is focused in the real needs of her clients (even advising against or less intervention), as opposed for "one size fits all" formula ou a too commercial push of the treatments as in many other clinics. It's a very humane and professional approach.
