What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is a depression of any shape or size with defined edges seen on the surface of the skin, typically on the buttocks or thighs. A major underlying cause of cellulite are the fibrous bands that tether your skin to the
structures below. These bands are called septa.1 Some septa are good (and you want them as connective tethers), but others stiffen or shrink over time and lead to the dimples we see on the surface and call cellulite.*
It’s important to distinguish cellulite from other concerns like laxity or localized fat, which we can talk you through during a consultation in our office. You should also know that cellulite is not your fault (genetics and hormones play a role), and you are not alone – up to 90% of women have it!*
How Does Avéli™ Work?
Avéli™ works for a range of women across the cellulite severity spectrum. The procedure is performed by one of our trained providers using a handheld device to manually target and release the complicated web of septa bands causing cellulite dimples.
Avéli™ addresses the primary structural cause of cellulite in 3 steps:
1. Your provider guides the Avéli™ device under the skin directly to the targeted dimples.*
2. After your provider identifies the culprit septa bands causing a dimple, those septa are precisely released.*
3. Your provider can confirm their release in real-time delivering visibly smoother skin.*
If you are a woman looking for a visible reduction in cellulite dimples from a single, minimally invasive in-office procedure, Avéli™ could be for you!1 Schedule a consultation with us to determine if you are a candidate.
Avéli™ treats the septa bands causing cellulite dimples.1 It is not a procedure that addresses other concerns often seen alongside cellulite, such as laxity (loose skin) or localized pockets of fat.
Nope! During a single procedure, the provider can fully treat the targeted cellulite dimples on both your buttocks and thighs.*
A typical procedure will take around an hour, including local anesthesia and the procedure itself. Exact timing will vary depending on the personalized procedure plan from your provider.
Little to none. In the clinical study, most patients returned to normal activities within 24-48 hours.*
In the clinical study, the most common side effects reported were mild pain within the first 24 hours and bruising and tenderness to the touch which typically resolved within 30 days. Small areas of firmness, usually not visible or painful, typically resolved in a couple of months.*
Avéli™ results should be visible once swelling and bruising subsides. By one-month post-procedure you should start to see the effects of the procedure.*
It is recommended to avoid any strenuous activities or workouts in the first few days/weeks after the procedure to allow the area to heal.* We will provide you with complete post-procedure expectations and recommendations.
Patients in the clinical study demonstrated a reduction in the appearance of their cellulite when assessed at three months after the procedure.* Patients in the study will continue to be followed through 12 months post-procedure.
