What is Aveli?
Are You a Candidate
What exactly is cellulite, and why does it appear?
Cellulite manifests as depressions of varying shapes and sizes with distinct boundaries on the skin’s surface, primarily on the buttocks or thighs. One of the primary culprits behind cellulite is the presence of fibrous bands, known as septa, which anchor the skin to the underlying structures. While some septa serve a beneficial connective role, others tend to stiffen or shrink over time, resulting in the visible dimples associated with cellulite.
It’s crucial to differentiate cellulite from other concerns such as skin laxity or localized fat accumulation, and we can provide a comprehensive discussion of these distinctions during a consultation at our office. Furthermore, it’s important to recognize that cellulite is not a reflection of your actions; genetics and hormonal factors play a significant role. Rest assured, you are not alone in dealing with cellulite, as it affects up to 90% of women.
What is Aveli? And How Does Aveli Work?
Avéli is an FDA-cleared minimally invasive treatment to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Connective tissue bands can form in many places on the body and pull the skin, creating dimpling, which is the main characteristic of cellulite. Aveli can reduce these dimples and give you the smooth look you desire.
Aveli uses a handheld device guided by one of our expert providers to target and cut the septa bands that are responsible for the dimpled look of cellulite. Unlike other treatments and skincare products that try to treat the issue from the outside, Aveli works from the inside and treats cellulite right from its source in one single in-office treatment.
During the treatment, your provider will guide the Aveli device under your skin and then use the device to release the septa bands, giving you smooth results.
Benefits of Aveli
Aveli comes with a variety of benefits. The innovative treatment is FDA-approved so you know it’s safe while it’s providing you with smoother and tighter-looking skin. The treatment also takes only an hour or less, depending on the size and number of treatment areas. The procedure is also minimally invasive and comes with very little recovery time, allowing you to return to your normal activities immediately. You also don’t have to come in for multiple treatments. One session is typically enough, and the results will last for a year or more.
Is Aveli Right For You?
Patients who are good candidates for Aveli should be in generally good health, have cellulite on their buttocks, hips, thighs, or other areas of their body that they are struggling with, and have realistic expectations and a positive outlook. You’ll also want to have a healthy BMI and show no signs of infection in or around the treatment area.
