All about Avéli Cellulite Reduction
Who Is a Good Candidate for Cellulite Reduction?
- The appearance of dimpled skin on the thighs or buttocks creates embarrassment
- You avoid wearing certain clothes or bathing suits due to a “cottage cheese” look
- The appearance of cellulite makes you look older or less fit than you really are
Avéli is a minimally invasive, FDA-cleared treatment for cellulite on the buttocks and thighs. It takes about an hour to perform on average. During the procedure, the Avéli device is moved beneath the skin to cut the connective tissue bands that cause cellulite dimples by pulling down on the skin’s surface. A lighted tip on the device allows us to precisely target individual bands and verify in real-time that targeted dimples have been removed.
We are excited to offer our Avéli patients BTL CELLUTONE as part of their cellulite treatment. CELLUTONE uses the power of therapeutic vibrations to increase lymphatic drainage, waste elimination and blood flow. It addresses the main factors causing cellulite formation and can lead to a considerable improvement in post-treatment skin appearance.
Before your Profound treatment, we will apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area, followed by an injection of numbing medicine. Then, the Profound device will be passed over your thighs. The device contains five pairs of microneedles with electrodes delivering radiofrequency energy directly into your skin and tissue.
We may recommend additional treatments to make the most of your cellulite reduction results. Many people choose to combine cellulite treatments with body contouring procedures such as liposuction or its non-surgical alternative, CoolSculpting®. Women getting a mommy makeover also commonly include cellulite treatments in their cosmetic plan.
Cellulite Treatment Recovery & Results
Patients should expect to feel sore, swollen, and bruised in the treatment area after the treatment session is completed. Bruising is often more moderate than some of our other cellulite treatment options. You should feel fine to return to your normal activities after about 2 days.
Bruising and swelling may last up to a month, which is when you can expect to see your final results. In most cases, only a single treatment is needed to see the desired cellulite reduction result.
You can return to your normal routine immediately following a Profound cellulite treatment. Expect to have some redness and mild soreness on the treated area, but these side effects should fade within the first day. Also during the first day or two, it’s important to avoid strenuous activities. You may see temporary bruising or swelling, which should fade within 1 to 5 days of your treatment.
Your results should gradually develop over the following several weeks and months. You should notice your skin developing a smoother, firmer texture. Your cellulite should slowly start to diminish after treatment.
