Aveli Cellulite Treatment Miami

Avéli™ Long-Term Cellulite Reduction

Cellulite can be frustrating. Most people have body fat, and nearly everyone has cellulite somewhere on their body.

While this is a normal experience, some people want to reduce the appearance of these dimpled areas of the skin. Although it may feel like there are only surgical and highly invasive procedures to target and treat cellulite, this is not the case! Avéli™ cellulite treatment allows for cellulite reduction by directly targeting the cause of the fat. Learn more about this powerful treatment option during a consultation with our team at Salas Plastic Surgery in Miami, FL!

What is cellulite? Why do I have cellulite?

Cellulite is a depression of any shape or size with defined edges seen on the surface of the skin, typically on the buttocks or thighs. A major underlying cause of cellulite are the fibrous bands that tether your skin to the

structures below. These bands are called septa. Some septa are good (and you want them as connective tethers), but others stiffen or shrink over time and lead to the dimples we see on the surface and call cellulite.

It’s important to distinguish cellulite from other concerns like laxity or localized fat, which we can talk you through during a consultation in our office. You should also know that cellulite is not your fault (genetics and hormones play a role), and you are not alone – up to 90% of women have it!

What is an Avéli™ cellulite reduction treatment?

Avéli™ is a no-nonsense approach to treating cellulite based on a deep understanding of women’s anatomy. While many treatments approach cellulite blindly from the outside-in, 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 an option for a range of women across the cellulite severity spectrum. The procedure is performed by one of our trained providers and uses a handheld device to manually target and release the complicated web of septa bands causing cellulite dimples.

Avéli™ addresses the primary structural cause of cellulite in 3 steps

  1. Dr. Salas guides the Avéli™ device under the skin directly to the targeted dimples.
  2. After we identify the culprit septa bands causing a dimple, those septa are precisely released.
  3. We can confirm their release in real-time, delivering visibly smoother skin quickly after the procedure.


If you are a woman in south Florida 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 us to determine if you are a candidate.

Avéli™ treats the septa bands causing cellulite dimples. It is not a procedure that addresses other concerns often seen alongside cellulite, such as laxity (loose skin) or localized pockets of fat.

Nope! During a single cellulite procedure, a provider can fully treat the targeted cellulite dimples on both your buttocks and thighs.

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 from your provider.

Little to none. In the clinical study, most patients returned to normal activities within 24-48 hours.

In 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.

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.

It is recommended to avoid any strenuous activities or workouts in the first few days/weeks after the procedure to allow the area to heal. We will provide you with complete post-procedure expectations and recommendations.

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 thigh areas of adult females 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 to the touch which typically 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.
