What Is Avéli?

Avéli is an FDA-cleared, one-time cellulite treatment that reduces cellulite on the buttocks and thighs by manually releasing the septa bands that cause these dimples to form.

As one of Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York’s latest body contouring treatments, Avéli allows adult women to achieve a smoother, more sculpted silhouette without lengthy downtime.

How Is Avéli Different From Other Cellulite Treatments?

What sets Avéli apart from other cellulite procedures is its precision. Many traditional cellulite treatments rely on energy or injectables to treat cellulite from the outside in. Avéli takes the opposite approach, targeting the root cause of dimpling.

Cellulite forms when the septa bands that join your skin to the underlying tissue and muscle pull downward, creating a pitted appearance. During an Avéli treatment, your board-certified dermatologist at Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York selectively targets and manually releases these bands from the skin.

Your dermatologist can confirm the bands’ release in real-time, focusing only on the cellulite-causing fibers and leaving the healthy tissue intact. This method allows patients to see visible results in one session without the risk of under or overtreatment.

What to Expect During Avéli Treatment

Avéli sessions take about one hour, but treatment times may vary based on your individual needs.

Before Treatment

Your board-certified dermatologist administers a local anesthetic into the treatment area to minimize discomfort.

During Treatment

Once you’re comfortable, your doctor inserts the Avéli through small incisions and guides it beneath the skin to locate and sever the septa bands that cause dimpling to develop. Your doctor can confirm the release of these bands in real-time, eliminating the need for additional treatments.

Immediately After Treatment

After your procedure is complete, your doctor covers the treatment areas in dressings and cushioned pads. You can return home right after the procedure and resume most of your normal activities within 24-48 hours.

How Soon Will I See Results After Avéli?

The results should be visible once swelling and bruising subside. Most patients enjoy visible improvements within one month after the procedure.

Does Avéli Have Side Effects?

Swelling, pain, and soreness may affect the treatment areas for up to 24 hours after the procedure. Bruising and tenderness typically resolve within one month. Small areas of firmness, which are not visible or painful, usually resolve in a couple of months.
