Your Guide to Avéli™ Treatment for Cellulite
Cellulite can be endlessly frustrating – no matter how much exercise or how many skincare products you try, it won’t go away. That’s because the causes of cellulite are much more deep-rooted and need some specialized treatment for best results. Avéli™ is an exciting new treatment option designed to achieve smoother skin with a single minimally invasive treatment session. Here’s what to know about our newest body contouring option at DiFrancesco Plastic Surgery.
How Does Avéli Work?
Avéli works by releasing the tough fibrous bands that tether the skin to the underlying tissues and cause the appearance of cellulite. Treatment is as simple as inserting a specialized handpiece through a tiny incision – this process immediately smooths the skin and allows your plastic surgeon to fine-tune your results in-office. It’s a more direct way of treating cellulite than other options which include breaking up the bands with radiofrequency energy or simply filling in dimples with volume. With Avéli, you get long-term results from addressing the underlying cause of cellulite.
What Happens During Avéli Treatment?
Avéli is performed right in our Atlanta office with a local anesthetic. To begin, you’ll meet with Dr. DiFrancesco to discuss your goals and determine whether Avéli is right for you. Then, a local anesthetic will be applied to the treatment area. Once you’re ready, the handpiece will be inserted through a tiny incision. This specialized handpiece is designed to release fibrous bands with minimal impact on the surrounding tissues. When your plastic surgeon fully treats the area, you’ll be made ready for your short recovery. In all, Avéli treatment can take just 60-90 minutes.
How Many Avéli Treatments Do You Need?
The best part about Avéli is it only requires a single treatment. This is a huge benefit over other non-surgical cellulite treatments that require treatment packages for minimal results. With Avéli, you can maximize your budget and your time for the results you want.
How Much Downtime is Required After Avéli?
Most patients can return to their normal day-to-day activities the day after treatment. You can expect to have some soreness and sensitivity, but this usually subsides within a week. You can help alleviate symptoms with protected ice packs. You should avoid intensive activities and exercise for 1-2 weeks and ensure you wear sunscreen on the treated area if you go outside.
Are Avéli Results Permanent?
Avéli produces long-term results, according to clinical studies by manufacturer Revelle Aesthetics®. In clinical studies, women saw noticeable improvement in the appearance of cellulite for at least three months. Because Avéli treats cellulite at its root, it’s one of the longest-lasting options available for cellulite.
