What is Avéli?

Avéli is a minimally invasive body treatment that can improve the appearance of cellulite in just one session. Avéli is different from other cellulite treatments because it addresses the root cause of cellulite. The dimpled appearance of cellulite is caused by tight, fibrous bands of collagen that run vertically underneath the skin. By releasing these bands, called septa, Avéli smooths away cellulite.

How Does Avéli Work?

Avéli is a minimally invasive treatment that smooths away cellulite on the thighs and/or buttocks. Dr. Rednam and her team will let you know what to expect during every step of your procedure.

Preparing for Avéli

There is little preparation needed for your Avéli treatment. You can schedule a consultation with Dr. Rednam before your treatment, which will allow you to ask any questions and confirm that Avéli is right for you.

Your Avéli Treatment

You will be given an injection of local anesthetic to prevent any discomfort during the treatment. Dr. Rednam will create a very small incision and then, using the specialized Avéli device that has a lighted tip, she will carefully clip the septae bands. She will target dimples on the thighs and buttocks and confirm that cellulite is smoothed away. Treatment time will vary depending on your individual anatomy and aesthetic goals, but the Avéli procedure usually takes about one hour.

Aveli can also be combined with procedures in the operating room, or may be used alone with local anesthetic and Pro-Nox.

Recovery After Avéli

With Avéli, you will not need to plan for any time off to recover. Many patients resume their regular activities the same day, although you should refrain from very strenuous exercise for a few days after treatment. It is normal to experience mild selling, bruising and tenderness in the first few days. Dr. Rednam may recommend a compression garment to minimize swelling.
