What is Avéli™️️️️?

Avéli™️️️️ is the newest, most innovative solution for cellulite. The procedure is the first of its kind to tackle the root cause of cellulite by targeting the septa bands that create those frustrating dimples.

During the in-office visit, a trained provider uses a handheld device to precisely pinpoint dimples and release the septa bands. Patients get real-time confirmation of the release and can see long-lasting, noticeable improvement in the appearance of cellulite.

What Causes Cellulite?

Cellulite is a condition in which the skin appears dimpled and lumpy, often on the thighs and buttocks. It is caused by fat deposits that push against fibrous bands beneath the skin called septa bands. This causes the skin to bulge and create an uneven surface. 

There are many factors that can contribute to cellulite. These include genetics, aging, hormones, and lifestyle conditions such as poor diet, lack of exercise and smoking. Gender also plays a role. Women are more likely to get cellulite than men due to the fat distribution in their bodies.

Nearly 90% of women will be affected by cellulite at some point in their lives. While cellulite is not considered a medical condition, many people find it cosmetically unappealing. There is no cure for cellulite, but there are treatments available that can help reduce its appearance. Avéli™️️️️ is the latest breakthrough in cellulite treatment.

How Does Avéli™️️️️ Treat Cellulite?

The Avéli™️️️️ procedure involves using a hand-held device with a small blade to target the exact septa bands that are causing cellulite dimples. The blade releases the bands so that the fat deposits are no longer pushing against the skin and causing lumps and dimples. The treatment is designed to be a single in-office treatment that produces long-term results in just one session.

What Areas Does Avéli™️️️️ Target?

Avéli™️️️️ has been proven to be effective at targeting cellulite in the buttocks and thighs. It specifically treats the dimples that cause skin to look uneven and lumpy. It should be noted that Avéli™️️️️ does not treat skin laxity (sagging skin) or fat pockets. In addition, it is not used for the gluteal crease.

Am I a Good Candidate For Avéli™️️️️ in Newport Beach?

The best candidates for Avéli™️️️️ are healthy adults who have stubborn cellulite dimples on the buttocks and thighs that they would like to smooth out with a minimally invasive procedure. The Avéli™️️️️ treatment in Newport Beach is suitable for all skin colors and a wide array of skin types. Dr. Goretti Ho Taghva at LEA Plastic Surgery can determine whether you are a good candidate for the procedure.

The Consultation For Avéli™️️️️

To determine whether Avéli™️️️️ is right for you, Dr. Ho Taghva will meet with you to discuss your aesthetic goals and needs.

During the consultation, she will go over your medical history to ensure there are no active conditions that may interfere with the procedure. She will also assess your areas of concern to ascertain whether Avéli™️️️️ is the best treatment plan for you. In addition, Dr. Ho Taghva will explain the procedure and answer any questions you may have.

What to Expect During an Avéli™️️️️ Cellulite Treatment

The Avéli™️️️️ procedure is performed in a treatment room at LEA Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach. Patients can expect a clean and comfortable environment and exceptional care by Dr. Ho Taghva and her aesthetic team. 

The doctor will first administer local anesthesia to minimize discomfort. Pro-nox is also available for patients needing additional comfort. Then the doctor will use the Avéli™️️️️ handheld device to target specific cellulite dimples. The small blade will be guided under the skin to release the septa bands that are affecting the dimpled areas.

The entire procedure only takes about an hour including the local anesthesia and procedure itself. The exact timing of the procedure will vary for each patient depending on the personalized plan from Dr. Taghva. There is no downtime needed after the procedure.

Many patients see results as soon as any bruising or swelling has diminished. Skin looks and feels smoother and more even. You can expect to see the full results approximately one month after the procedure.

You may find that your skin is tender to the touch or slightly bruised or swollen

Are There Any Potential Side Effects of Avéli™️️️️?

Data from a clinical study shows that most Avéli™️️️️ patients experience few, if any, side effects. The most common side effects were mild pain the first day of the procedure, but for many patients this subsided after 24 hours. Other side effects could include bruising, tenderness and small pockets of firmness. These tend to resolve within a few weeks or in rarer cases a few months.

Healing From Avéli™️️️️

The Avéli™️️️️ procedure requires making small incisions in the skin to reach the septa bands. Therefore, your body will need time to heal from the incisions. However, most people find that the incisions are so tiny that they do not take long to heal. In fact, many people can resume normal activities within 24 to 48 hours of the treatment.

The first few days after the procedure you should avoid strenuous workouts, swimming, and anything that might irritate the skin. You may find that the skin is tender to the touch or slightly bruised or swollen. Ice packs can help ease discomfort and bring down any swelling.
