What is Avéli™?
Cellulite is a common concern many patients have about their lower body. If you are looking for a non-surgical solution that leaves the thighs and buttocks with a tighter and smoother appearance, Avéli™ may be right for you.
Avéli™ is a minimally invasive treatment that significantly reduces cellulite in an area in one office visit. It is the first cellulite reduction procedure where a trained physician is able to identify and release the cellulite-causing bands under the skin, also known as septa, and be able to confirm that the septa causing the dimples have been released. With Avéli™, a physician is able to precisely target the dimpled areas. This device can also treat pockets of fat or laxity that often accompany cellulite in these areas.
What are the benefits of Avéli™?
For those looking to reduce cellulite in their thighs and buttocks, there are a number of benefits to receiving an Avéli™ treatment. These include:
- Visible and meaningful reduction of cellulite
- Single office visit procedure
- Little to no downtime or recovery period
- Improved confidence
Who is a good candidate for cellulite treatment in Portland?
Good candidates for Avéli™ are people who are in good health and who experience cellulite dimples on their thighs and buttocks. They are people who are looking to reduce cellulite in a single office visit and achieve smoother, tighter skin, but have reasonable expectations about the process. Avéli™ is a good option for those looking for significant improvement after a one-time procedure. You may not be a good candidate for Avéli™ if you any of the following conditions apply to you:
- Your cellulite is mostly due to skin laxity
- You have a BMI over 25
- You have received a procedure using liposuction in the desired treatment area
The best way to determine if you are a good candidate is to book a consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Allen Gabriel.
