Avéli® is a revolutionary, minimally-invasive cellulite treatment that is designed specifically to smooth out skin in just one office visit. Backed by decades of scientific research, this FDA-approved procedure effectively addresses all levels of cellulite complexities — from slight depressions to deeper dimples.
As an industry trailblazer, Revelle Aesthetics only invests resources in creating technology that addresses cosmetic issues that no one else has been able to solve. One of those issues that didn’t have an effective option? Cellulite.
Thanks to the innovative design of the Avéli device, we are now able to eliminate cellulite in both the buttocks and thighs in just a single in-office session and give our patients the confidence they need to show off their legs and assets once again!
To understand the Avéli technology, we first have to get a good grasp on what cellulite is! Cellulite is a series of connective tissue (called septa) that latches onto the skin and pulls it down, creating that “dimple” that we see. It is typically caused by genetics, age, body fat percentage and the thickness of the skin. While cellulite is considered a harmless condition that affects hundreds of millions of women throughout the world, it is also a major source of insecurity that we can now address with Avéli.
The proprietary Avéli handheld device is made up of two primary components — a light and a hook that houses a surgical-grade blade. As the device is injected into small, strategically placed entry sites in the skin, the transilluminating light allows our providers to see through the skin and gauge how deep the device is at any time. The hook component is meticulously guided along targeted areas and the device closer to the surface of the skin because that is where the most cellulite-inducing bands exist.
To begin, our providers first locate the target areas of the body with the most noticeable instances of cellulite and circle them. Then, they identify an entry point that gives them equal access to these areas in an effort to make as few entry points as possible. The device is then injected into the skin and is pushed past the deepest cellulite depression.
The surgical blade (safely housed within the hook) is then unsheathed as the device is pulled back toward the entry point. The blade retracts and severs the connective bands, releasing the skin and eliminating the appearance of cellulite. It can sometimes take multiple passes to fully break through these bands.
This treatment takes about one full hour to complete and is performed while a patient is awake user local anesthesia. All of the work can be completed within a single session.
When deciding if someone is a candidate for cellulite treatment, we look to make sure that they are:
Note: These are the criteria for patients to be medically cleared for Avéli. There are certain circumstances in which an individual may be better suited for a different skin tightening procedure to eliminate the appearance of cellulite. This will be determined within the initial consultation.
The cost for this treatment is based on complexity and the number of areas treated. A patient can typically target just the buttocks or thighs for $3,500. It costs $4,000 to target both areas in one session. Some circumstances require additional resources and may cost $5,000; this will be determined during the initial consultation.
Much to the delight of patients, results actually begin showing during the treatment. However, due to swelling and bruising, it can take up to one full month for full results to surface and show through. The results are designed to be a permanent fix.
Because Avéli is so precise, recovery time is faster and more comfortable when compared to other cellulite treatments. Patients can expect to have some bruising, soreness and swelling after their procedure. This may last up to 30 days but often clears up much sooner.
We ask that patients keep strenuous activity to a minimum for the first week as the treated area heals. Most patients are able to return to normal daily activities as soon as the insertion points have healed (within 48 hours).
