Avéli cellulite treatment is becoming one of the most requested procedures in the country for addressing the challenge of cellulite. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Herluf Lund Jr. is proud to be one of the few select providers of Avéli cellulite treatment in greater St. Louis, Missouri.

Groundbreaking Avéli helps women treat cellulite’s frustrating dimples and achieve smoother contours with long-lasting results and little to no downtime.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Avéli Cellulite Treatment?

Avéli treatment is appropriate for most people who are self-conscious about unsightly dimpled skin. Ideal candidates for Avéli cellulite reduction typically possess these characteristics:

  • Nonsmokers in good overall health
  • Localized fat and minimal skin laxity
  • Realistic expectations about the procedure

How Does Avéli Treat Cellulite?

Using an innovative treatment approach, Avéli targets the root cause of cellulite without disrupting surrounding skin tissue. Dr. Lund gently yet precisely guides the Avéli device beneath the skin to reach the “septa.” Septa are the fibrous bands that push and pull on the skin, causing skin dimpling. The problematic septa are identified and released in real time, leaving you with substantially smoother skin after a single treatment.

Avéli provides safe, long-term treatment of cellulite in the hips, thighs, and buttocks. However, it is not a fat reduction or skin laxity treatment.

Avéli Cellulite Procedure Benefits

Avéli continues to soar in popularity for its unique treatment approach and proven results. Some of the key benefits of the treatment include:

  • It addresses the root cause of cellulite (septa bands) with extreme accuracy.
  • Most women need only a single treatment to achieve smoother, shapelier contours.
  • Treatment is quick (about an hour) and performed under local anesthesia.
  • It has minimal side effects, and results are visibly long-lasting.
  • Women gain more comfort and self-confidence in their skin.

What Is Avéli Recovery Like?

Avéli treatment requires little downtime, although minor bruising and swelling are common. While clinical studies show most patients return to regular activities within 24 to 48 hours, we recommend avoiding strenuous activities or workouts for a few days or up to a few weeks following your procedure. This gives the treated skin ample time to heal. Your provider will share detailed Avéli post-op recommendations to optimize your healing and results.

Can Avéli Be Combined with Other Treatments?

Avéli treats cellulite efficiently, making it an excellent complement to fat reduction and other body contouring procedures such as a body lift, Brazilian Butt Lift , and liposuction. During your personalized consultation, Dr. Lund will assess your concerns and recommend a customized treatment plan to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

Avéli FAQs

What causes cellulite?

While cellulite can be hereditary, nearly 90% of women have it. Cellulite forms when septa bands tighten, causing a push-pull effect that gives your skin an unsightly dimpled appearance. Aging, hormonal changes, and weight gain can also contribute to cellulite formation.

Is Avéli treatment painful?

Avéli is well-tolerated by most patients. However, during treatment, we provide localized numbing to minimize your discomfort. After treatment, minor swelling and bruising may cause tenderness or soreness, but these aftereffects are temporary.

When will I see my Avéli results?

Every patient is unique, but most women notice smoother skin soon after treatment. Improvement continues as swelling and bruising gradually subside. Regular exercise and a healthy diet and lifestyle maintain your Avéli results.
