What Is Avéli?

Avéli is a revolutionary cosmetic treatment that eliminates cellulite dimples around the buttocks and thighs. The FDA-cleared treatment smooths out unsightly divots in the skin, leaving it firm and youthful-looking.

How Does Avéli Work?

Understanding how Avéli treatment works help to understand how cellulite dimples form in the skin. Cellulite is caused by bands of fibrous connective tissue located beneath the skin. These bands, called septa, tug down on the skin, pulling it inward and creating little divots. When the skin is tightened like this, it also pushes the underlying layer of fat upward. Although cellulite is more common in women, it can also affect men.

Avéli treatment utilizes a special handheld device equipped with a tiny blade to eliminate cellulite dimples. When this device is inserted through a small incision, its edge can be precisely controlled to sever the septa bands creating the cellulite. Once these bands of connective tissue have been cut, there’s no longer anything pulling down on the skin, eliminating the divots and restoring a smooth, vibrant complexion.

Avéli is a highly effective cellulite treatment that can offer all of the following benefits:

What Should I Expect During the Procedure?

Before you undergo  Avéli in Beverly Hills & Santa Monica, your first step will be to sit down for a consultation with Dr. Shafa. He will talk with you about the treatment details and answer any questions you may have. 

  • Avéli treatment is an outpatient procedure conducted in our clinic using local anesthesia.
  • Dr. Shafa makes small incisions around the treatment area.
  • He uses the Avéli handpiece to target and cut the septa bands, causing cellulite dimples.
  • Once all targeted bands are severed, the device is removed, and incisions are closed with sutures.
  • The procedure typically lasts about an hour, and you can go home shortly after completion.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?

After your Avéli procedure, you’ll likely experience some swelling and bruising, but those symptoms will fade gradually over a few weeks. You should be able to return to work and resume your normal routine within a day or two of your treatment. However, it’s important to refrain from strenuous physical activity for one or two weeks to ensure proper healing.

Am I a Candidate for Avéli?

Adults experiencing cellulite dimples around the thighs and/or buttocks could be good candidates for Avéli. To be an ideal candidate for the treatment, you should:

  • Be in generally good physical health
  • Have the desire to eliminate cellulite around your thighs and/or
  • buttocks
  • Be relatively close to your ideal weight
  • Have a BMI of under 30
  • Not be currently pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Have reasonable expectations for the treatment
  • Be between the ages of 21 and 60

How Long Will It Take To See Results After Avéli Treatment?

You may notice an immediate reduction in the cellulite around the treatment area after an Avéli session, but the full results of the procedure will appear gradually. Typically, you can see the complete effects of Avéli in approximately three months, and those improvements could last for multiple years or even a lifetime. Most patients can achieve optimal results with only one Avéli treatment session, but in rare cases, a follow-up session may be required to eliminate the targeted cellulite.
