Aveli Conveniently located to serve Greater Chicago Area and Cook County
If you’re looking for a quick and effective solution to cellulite, it’s time to try Aveli. About 90% of women have cellulite. This unsightly dimpling of the skin occurs in the buttocks and thighs. While there are treatment options available for cellulite, some offer temporary results, even with repeated treatments. With Aveli in Chicago, a single treatment yields long-lasting benefits.
What Is Aveli?
Aveli is an FDA-cleared device for long-term reduction of cellulite on the thighs and buttocks. It is a minimally invasive one-time treatment that smooths away skin dimpling. During treatment, the individual septa (bands of connective tissue) that pull the skin inward are cut. This smooths out the lumpy appearance of cellulite.
The best part about this treatment is it only targets the fibrous bands that leads to visible dimpling, thus preventing overtreatment. There is also no heat involved, reducing side effects and eliminating post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Am I a Good Candidate for Aveli?
Ideal candidates for Aveli treatments are women in good overall health who have cellulite on their buttocks and thighs. It can be used safely for most skin tones and types. Patients should have realistic expectations; there will be significant reduction but not 100% elimination of cellulite after treatment. It is best for women with busy lifestyles and tight schedules who prefer to get results in just one treatment.
A physical examination of your thighs and buttocks will determine your eligibility for the Aveli procedure. Your medical history will be reviewed, including pre-existing conditions and current medications. Discuss your cosmetic goals and desired outcome with Dr. Michael Lee so that a personalized treatment approach can be developed for you.
What Happens During an Aveli Treatment?
A local anesthetic will be administered to numb the treatment area. Then, a handheld treatment device is used to locate the septa causing the cellulite. There is light at the end of the tool, along with a hook and a blade, which will be used to catch and cut the bands of connective tissue. Depending on the complexity of the dimpling, the process can take an hour or more.

Recovery and Healing
Recovery after Aveli treatment is as short as a few days, depending on the body’s natural healing ability. There will be bruising and swelling for the first several days. Discomfort and pain can be expected for a day or two but can be alleviated with the help of over-the-counter medications. It can take a month before bruising and tenderness fully resolves.
How Much Does Aveli Cost?
The cost of Aveli treatments differs for each patient as determined by the complexity of the procedure. The overall price of Aveli may be impacted by anesthetic and procedural fees, along with the number of areas targeted for cellulite treatment.
