Do you feel self-conscious about wearing shorts or swimsuits because of cellulite on your thighs and buttocks? If you do, you’re certainly not alone. Those unattractive little divots that appear on our skin are entirely natural, but that doesn’t make them any less embarrassing. If you’d like to achieve smoother, cellulite-free skin with a minimally invasive treatment, Avéli may be exactly what you need.
What Is Avéli?
Avéli is an FDA-cleared cosmetic treatment used to reduce cellulite around the thighs and buttocks.
Benefits of Avéli
For anyone who’d like to be rid of their cellulite, Avéli can offer some or all of the following benefits:
- Greatly reduced cellulite on the thighs and buttocks
- Smoother, more youthful-looking skin
- Long-lasting results
- Increased self-esteem
- More attractive appearance in shorts and bathing suits
- Safe for all skin types
How Long Is the Recovery Time?
You should be able to return to your normal routine only a day or two after your procedure, but you’ll need to avoid strenuous exercise for one to two weeks. Most patients experience some bruising, swelling, and discomfort after Avélil treatment. The discomfort should only last a day or two, but the swelling and bruising can last up to a month.
Am I a Candidate for Avéli?
If you have unsightly cellulite around the thighs and/or buttocks, you could be a good candidate for Avéli. Ideal candidates should typically meet the following requirements:
- Be in good physical health
- Have realistic expectations for the treatment
- Have cellulite around the thighs and/or buttocks that you’d like to eliminate
- Be a non-smoker
How Long Will It Take To See Results After Avéli Treatment?
Although you might start to notice results shortly after your Avéli treatment, the full effects of the procedure will not be revealed until the swelling and bruising subside. This can take up to a month. If you take good care of your skin and maintain a stable weight, your results could last for several years.
