While cellulite is a natural part of the human body, many women struggle with their self-image and confidence because of the appearance of lumpy skin. Avéli is a minimally invasive body sculpting procedure that board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Danielle DeLuca-Pytell can use to reduce the appearance of cellulite in the buttocks and thighs of adult women. An Avéli cellulite treatment in Troy could have a long-lasting impact on your comfort and self-esteem by creating a smooth, even feel across your skin.
What Is Avéli Cellulite Treatment?
Common misconceptions about cellulite may lead you to believe it is caused by excess fat or a loss of elasticity in your skin. Cellulite is actually produced by fibrous bands called septa that tether your skin to the tissues and structures underneath it. This creates the dimples on the surface of your skin that we call cellulite.
While many treatments target cellulite from the outside, Avéli is a minimally invasive procedure that manually releases the septa bands responsible for this lumpy texture on the buttocks and thighs. During the procedure, Dr. DeLuca-Pytell makes a small incision to access these septa bands. She then uses the Avéli device to make precise cuts across these bands, reducing the appearance of cellulite and smoothing the skin.
We perform Aveli treatments in Troy using local anesthesia and Pro-Nox (if desired), and a treatment session typically takes about an hour. The length of time may vary depending on the areas you want to treat. During your initial consultation, we will work with you to develop a personalized procedure plan incorporating Avéli cellulite treatments to target your specific concerns.
Recovery After Avéli Cellulite Treatment
There is little to no downtime after an Avéli cellulite treatment at our Troy office. Some patients can return to their regular activities within one day of their procedure. However, we recommend avoiding strenuous activities for at least several days.
During the healing process, you may experience mild pain, bruising, and tenderness. These symptoms should mostly fade within a few days and fully resolve within a month or two. Some patients may continue to experience small areas of firmness that are usually not visible or painful. These pockets will naturally smooth out and resolve themselves over several months.
The results of your Avéli cellulite treatment will be visible once swelling and bruising subside, which usually takes about thirty days. Many patients continue to see a reduction in cellulite a year after their treatment session. We will provide post-procedure care recommendations and safety information to ensure you are confident and prepared for your treatment session.
