Although it is harmless and does not negatively impact your health, the appearance of cellulite around your thighs and buttocks can significantly impact your self-confidence and happiness with your overall aesthetics.
Many people may spend hours of moderate exercise and try to lose weight, thinking the cellulite will disappear. Although there may be some reduction in appearance, cellulite is not necessarily linked with excessive weight, and losing stubborn or unwanted body fat may not have any impact on appearance.
The dimples associated with the appearance of cellulite are formed by bands of connective tissue between your skin and the layer of fat and muscle below. These tissues are not as elastic as surrounding tissues, so they unevenly pull on your skin, creating dimples, lines, or wrinkles.
The only way to truly and permanently reduce the appearance of cellulite is to sever these connective tissues to allow the layer of skin to move freely over the layers of fat and muscle blow. Aveli™ is a minimally-invasive treatment that safely and effectively reduces the appearance of cellulite.
After numbing the area with a local anesthetic, your doctor will insert the tiny probe of the Aveli™ system through specifically located incisions. These incisions are small enough that scarring is rarely a concern. The procedure, including time for preparation, takes around an hour.
Since the connective tissues have to be physically severed during the procedure, some bruising and soreness around the treatment area are expected. However, this is generally very mild and, with over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication and ice packs, will subside within a few days.
There are no other restrictions or recovery needed after the procedure, and you can continue with your normal activities right away.
Don’t wait to see the benefit of the FDA-approved Aveli™ and reduce the appearance of cellulite. With the short procedure time and no recovery, the treatment can fit in with your daily life with little interruption.
