Avéli long term treatment for Cellulite in NYC

Dr. Ron Shelton at Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York  is excited to be one of the very first Dermatologic surgeons in NYC to offer Avéli™ for a meaningful and long-term treatment for Cellulite dimples in NYC

6 Weeks after Aveli for Cellulite Reduction

What is cellulite? How do you get cellulite?

Cellulite is not your fault. Genetics and hormones play a role and up to 90% of women have Cellulite. Cellulite, seen like orange peel or dimple and dents on the buttocks and thighs is a depression caused by fibrous bands that tether your skin to the structures below. These bands are called septa. Some septa are good as they function as connective tethers. Others stiffen or shrink over time and lead to the dimples we see on the surface which  are known as cellulite.

It’s important to distinguish cellulite from other concerns like laxity or localized fat, which Dr. Shelton can discuss with you during a consultation at his practice.

Avéli™ long-term treatment for cellulite reduction in NYC

Avéli™ is a highly effective approach to treating cellulite based on a deep understanding of the anatomy. However, Dr. Shelton is interested to see how Aveli can help skin laxity as well.

Avéli™ identifies and releases the primary structural cause of cellulite from the inside-out in a single minimally-invasive procedure with little downtime.

How to reduce cellulite with Avéli™

Avéli™ is performed by Dr. Shelton himself using a handheld device to manually target and release the complicated web of septa bands causing cellulite dimples.

Avéli™ targets the primary structural cause of cellulite in 3 steps:

  1. Your doctor guides the Avéli™ device under the skin directly to the targeted dimples.
  2. After he identifies the septa bands which cause the dimple, those septa are precisely released.
  3. Lastly, he confirms the release instantly, delivering visibly smoother skin

Avéli™ FAQs – What to expect from the Avéli™ long term cellulite treatment in NYC 

Q: How do I know if Avéli™ is right for me?
A: If you are in New York City looking for long-term reduction in cellulite dimples from a single, minimally invasive in-office procedure, Avéli™ could be for you!  Schedule a consultation with Dr. Shelton by calling (212) 593-1818  to determine if you are a candidate.

Q: Does Avéli™ only treat cellulite dimples?

A: Avéli™ treats the septa bands causing cellulite dimples. It does not address other concerns which are often seen alongside cellulite, such as laxity (loose skin) or localized pockets of fat. 

Q: Will I need multiple sessions?

A: No. During a single cellulite procedure, Dr. Shelton can fully treat the targeted cellulite dimples on both your buttocks and thighs. 

Q: How long does the procedure take?

A: A typical procedure will take around an hour, including local anesthesia and the procedure itself. Exact timing will vary depending on the personalized procedure plan.

Q: Is there any downtime after the procedure?

A: There is little to no downtime. During the clinical study, most patients returned to their normal activities within 24-48 hours. 

Q: Are there any side effects?

A: During the clinical study, the most common side effects reported were mild pain within the first 24 hours and bruising and tenderness to the touch which typically resolved within 30 days. Small areas of firmness, usually not visible or painful, typically resolved in a couple of months.

Q: How quickly will I see improvement in my cellulite?

A: Avéli™ cellulite reduction results should be visible once swelling and bruising subsides. By one-month post-procedure you should start to see the effects of the procedure.

Q: Can I work out or exercise after the procedure?

A: It is recommended to avoid any strenuous activities or workouts within the first few days or weeks after the procedure to allow the area to heal. Dr. Shelton will guide you with complete post-procedure expectations and recommendations.

Q: How long will the results last?

A: Participants in the clinical study demonstrated a lasting reduction in the appearance of their cellulite when assessed one year after the procedure.

Avéli™ is indicated for long-term reduction in the appearance of cellulite in the buttocks and thighs as supported by clinical data demonstrating treatment benefits through one year of observation. The most common side effects reported were mild pain within the first 24 hours and bruising and tenderness which resolved within 30 days. Some patients returned to normal activities within one day of the procedure and most within a week. As with any medical procedure, there are risks associated with the procedure. Consult Dr. Shelton at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York for full safety information.
