Aveli Cellulite Treatment Phoenix AZ
Cellulite is a condition characterized by dimpling of the skin, most commonly on the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. This is caused by collagen fibers and bands that tether the skin to the deeper fascia. Developing these bands is primarily related to genetics, but hormonal changes and lifestyle choices can also contribute. Cellulite is reported to affect up to 80-90% of women, and can be very difficult to treat.
The Aveli Cellulite Treatment is a new, non-invasive procedure that uses a precision instrument under local anesthesia to mechanically release the tight collagen bands causing these case dimples.
The treatment begins with a consultation to assess the patient’s individual needs and goals. Dr Tessler and Dr Turin will discuss with you the particular pattern of cellulite dimples on your body, your contour, skin quality, as well as any other concerns you may have. We then discuss whether you are a good candidate for the procedure and would be likely to be satisfied with your results, and explain what type of improvement you can expect. One of the main benefits of Aveli Cellulite Treatment is that it is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require any downtime. There is effectively no recovery period and patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment. The procedure typically takes around 45 minutes to complete and patients typically see results after the first treatment.
Another benefit of the Aveli Cellulite Treatment is that it is a safe and effective option for patients of all skin types. The procedure is not invasive, which eliminates the risks associated with surgery, and does not require the use of any harmful chemicals or drugs.
It is important to note that Aveli Cellulite Treatment is not a weight-loss solution, and it is not recommended for patients who are significantly overweight. The procedure is best suited for individuals who have a stable weight and are looking to improve the appearance of cellulite and skin tone.
The results of Aveli Cellulite Treatment are permanent and will not require maintenance treatments to maintain the desired results. Patients can expect to see an improvement in the appearance of the treated cellulite areas that is visible essentially within a day and then will continue to improve.
Overall, Aveli Cellulite Treatment is a non-invasive and effective option for individuals looking to reduce the appearance of cellulite and improve the overall tone and texture of the skin. The treatment is safe and does not require any downtime, making it a convenient option for busy individuals. It is important to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine if Aveli Cellulite Treatment is the right option for you.
Frequently Asked Questions
Aveli Cellulite Treatment FAQ
Who is a good candidate for Aveli Cellulite Treatment?
Aveli Cellulite Treatment is most effective for dimples on the thighs, hips, and buttocks that are well defined and not too close to other dimples. Patients that have a cellulite appearance to the entire area usually will not benefit as much from these treatments as these fibers may be too small and too numerous to release individually. Patients with thicker, elastic skin will also tend to have a better result and smoother appearance after the treatment.
What are the risks of Aveli Cellulite Treatment?
Aveli Cellulite Treatment is considered a safe and non-invasive procedure, however, as with any treatment, there are some potential risks and side effects to consider:
- Pain and discomfort: Some patients may experience mild pain or discomfort during the treatment, which can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.
- Bruising: The treatment may cause some mild bruising, which usually subsides within a few days.
- Swelling: Some patients may experience mild swelling in the treated area, which usually subsides within a few days.
It’s important to keep in mind that the treatment may not be suitable for everyone and it’s essential to consult with a professional practitioner to determine if Aveli Cellulite Treatment is the right option for you. They will be able to evaluate your individual needs and goals, as well as any potential risks or side effects.

What are the alternatives to the Aveli Cellulite Treatment?
Many types of interventions have been evaluated for cellulite, including:
Liposuction – This is an excellent treatment for excess subcutaneous fat, but it does not actually release the problem collagen bands, and in some patients may even exacerbate the appearance of cellulite.
Cellfina – This is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a small needle-sized device to target and release the fibrous bands that are responsible for the dimpling appearance of cellulite. This treatment is performed on an outpatient basis, and typically takes about an hour to complete. It is a similar idea to Aveli in that it also mechanically releases the bands, but it is a more limited and smaller mechanism. Also, the Aveli device is critically different in that it allows the surgeon to directly visualize the bands being released and to confirm that the release is complete. This makes a dramatic difference in that it Aveli allows us to provide a much higher quality and more effective treatment than Cellfina.
Qwo – QWO cellulite treatment is a non-surgical procedure that uses injectable enzymes to target and dissolve the fibrous bands that cause the dimpling appearance of cellulite. The injectable enzymes used in QWO cellulite treatment are called collagenase, which are enzymes that break down collagen, the main component of the fibrous bands. The treatment is designed to target and dissolve these bands, which allows the skin to smooth out and reduce the appearance of cellulite. However, it also causes a significant amount of damage to the surrounding tissues. These problems and the lack of excellent results have led to this now being taken off the market.
Topical therapies such as creams, lotions, etc – there are hundreds or maybe even thousands of these types of products on the market, yet unfortunately there is no good evidence of their efficacy. A recent large review and meta-analysis showed that the studies behind these products have significant flaws and have not shown cellulite reduction in the average patient (https://www.karger.com/Article/Abstract/491850).
Massage, laser therapy, ultrasound therapy, etc. – just like with the topical products, these can show a temporary improvement in the appearance of the cellulite area. However, there is poor to no evidence regarding any long-term results.
