Avéli™ Cellulite Treatment

Conveniently located to serve in Austin, TX

Avéli™ is a minimally invasive procedure used to reduce cellulite, the dimples or lumps appearing on the skin’s surface. For Avéli™ cellulite treatment in Austin, TX, it’s crucial to choose a medically trained and highly experienced provider like board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Daniela Atencio.

How Does Cellulite Form?

Cellulite is caused by fibrous bands, the connective tissue that tethers your skin to the underlying structures. As these bands shrink or stiffen over time, they can occasionally cause tiny deposits of fat tissue to get trapped between them. This isolated fat pushes against the skin, leading to those pesky peaks and valleys. Cellulite can appear individually or in clusters and be of any shape or size.

How Is Avéli™ Used to Treat Cellulite?

The Avéli™ device features a hook with a retractable blade and light. The blade is used to methodically cut certain fibrous bands contributing to cellulite, while leaving necessary bands intact. Dr. Atencio utilizes the light to help differentiate between “good and bad” bands and track the device’s location under the skin.

Am I a Candidate for Avéli™ Therapy?

During your consultation, Dr. Atencio will first need to confirm that your symptoms are representative of cellulite. If so, Avéli™ can be a fantastic option for qualifying patients looking for a long-term reduction in cellulite with a quick, in-office procedure. Avéli™ is used to treat cellulite in locations like the:

  • Thighs
  • Hips
  • Buttocks

It is specifically designed for cellulite treatments, not other skin concerns like wrinkles, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation. However, we also offer microneedling and multiple cosmetic surgical procedures for eligible candidates.

Liposuction could be the more appropriate choice for more significant deposits of stubborn fat tissue. In these cases, Dr. Atencio uses VASER® technology to administer ultrasound energy for gentle but highly precise fat targeting. The fat tissue is then removed via a cannula.

What Happens During an Avéli™ Procedure?

An Avéli™ cellulite treatment is performed under local anesthesia to make sure you’re comfortable. Next, one or more tiny incisions are made into the treatment area(s), allowing for the insertion of the Avéli™ device. With the aid of the light, the unnecessary fibrous bands can then be cut, releasing the cellulite. The blade is retracted when passing between targeted bands to protect other nearby tissue.

What Happens After an Avéli™ Cellulite Treatment?

Once your appointment is complete, you should be able to resume your daily schedule within 24 to 48 hours. Most patients report only mild soreness or tenderness during their initial recovery, but these should resolve within the first 30 days.

Only one session is typically required to achieve your desired results! On average, patients will experience a significant reduction in cellulite about one month after the procedure.

How Much Does Avéli™ Cost?

The total price of your Avéli™ procedure will vary based on the number of areas being treated and the severity of your cellulite in each location. If your Avéli™ therapy is being combined with other aesthetic protocols, the cost of your treatment plan may be affected.
