Cellulite is a series of depressions visible on the skin surface. Usually, it is found on the buttocks or thighs. Fibrous bands that link to underlying skin structures, known as septa, end up pulling the skin downward, causing the visible dimples on the skin. Not all septa is bad, but other septa will shrink or stiffen, causing the appearance of cellulite.
Cellulite is common. In fact, nearly 90% of women report having cellulite. While popular opinion attributes this to weight, weight can actually turn out to not be a significant factor. Extensive medical research has shown that hormones, rather than weight, is the most common culprit when it comes to cellulite. In other words, cellulite should not exclusively be considered an issue of fat or poor skin.
How Avéli™’s groundbreaking technology is an optimal cellulite treatment
Avéli™ is recommended for healthy adults who have issues with the appearance of cellulite on their buttocks and thighs. MD Aesthetica, one of Houston’s premier med spas in the treatment of cellulite, offers pre-treatment consultations for patients interested in Avéli™. We will evaluate your condition, learn about your aesthetic goals, and help you discover the best path forward to get the best results.
How Avéli™ works
Avéli™ amazing technology identifies individual septa and then releases each septa, allowing for a smoother skin surface. This 90 minute treatment involves Dr. Lyos using a handheld device that will target and cut connective tissue bands that pull the structures down underneath the skin. This releases the septa, allowing for the skin structures to reset properly, giving your skin a smoother appearance.
- First, Dr. Lyos will mark the area for treatment.
- Next, he will administer a local lidocaine injection to numb the target area.
- Then, the Avéli handpiece (a small wand with a blade that retracts) under the skin, which cuts the bands individually with precision.
- Finally, the treatment area is covered with absorbent dressing, padding, and tight compression legging to minimize swelling and bruising.
Post procedure notes
You will be able to return to normal activities after the treatment. However, Dr. Lyos recommends that you avoid rigorous lower body activities such as jogging or running, for 10 to 14 days.
You may experience discomfort and tenderness for a few days when sitting on the treated areas after the procedure. Bruising is mild to moderate and will last anywhere from 7 to 28 days. Tenderness is to be expected, but can be easily managed with over-the-counter pain medication. Try to keep workouts to a minimum. Expect to see the full results of your treatment roughly one month after the procedure.
