Avéli vs. Cellfina for Cellulite

Dr. Teotia - Cellfina vs Aveli

While most body contouring treatments focus on fat reduction and skin tightening, you may prefer to focus on improving your skin’s texture if you believe it detracts from your appearance. For example, cellulite is a common condition characterized by the appearance of dimpled or lumpy skin on the thighs, buttocks, or other areas of your body. It occurs when fat deposits push through the connective tissues, creating the characteristic “orange-peel” look.

Unlike regular fat, which you can lose through exercise and diet, stubborn cellulite tends to persist even if you are otherwise fit, healthy, and at your target weight. That is because this issue results from a combination of factors, including genetics, hormones, poor circulation, and the structure of connective tissues. As you may know, it is challenging to eliminate cellulite once it develops, even with techniques like massage and topical creams. It might be time to explore minimally invasive surgery if you have found alternative over-the-counter cellulite remedies lacking.

As a leading female plastic surgeon, Dr. Stephanie Teotia understands how frustrating cellulite can be. She offers a practical, effective, and zero-downtime solution to this problem – Avéli. This procedure removes the septa bands that cause cellulite to form. However, while Dr. Teotia exclusively offers Aveli, it’s useful to compare Aveli with another popular cellulite treatment, Cellfina, to show how the two cellulite treatments compare.

What Is Avéli?

Avéli is the latest technology for reducing cellulite. It directly treats the problem’s underlying cause with a lighted device that severs the banded collagen that causes dimples. Releasing this tension with a hooked blade lets your skin’s surface sit more evenly instead of puckering. One of Avéli’s most noteworthy benefits is verification. Once Dr. Teotia cuts each septa that contributes to a dimple, she passes the hook back under the skin to confirm a complete severance.

Though other cellulite treatments, like Cellfina, work by severing the septa, no other procedure can match Avéli’s precision and verification. Dr. Teotia only cuts the bands that are responsible for dimpling, leaving others intact. This accuracy limits damage to the surrounding tissue and reduces the severe side effects resulting from other cellulite treatments.

Avéli is notable for the longevity of its results. In a clinical study spanning 12 months, Avéli patients and physicians reported seeing significant post-operative improvements at three months and one year, based on the Cellulite Severity Scale and Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale. In another study, 93% of Avéli patients reported significant improvement in their appearance.

Unlike Cellfina, which necessitates an incision at every cellulite dimple, Avéli typically requires only one incision at the gluteal crease. Thanks to local anesthesia, you will feel no pain while Dr. Teotia performs this in-office procedure. However, you can expect to experience some soreness or discomfort in the treated area for 24 to 48 hours. You will see your full results after bruising and swelling fade.

What Is Cellfina?

Cellfina is a one-time, in-office procedure that uses a suction device to lift your tissue above the cellulite dimple. Then, the provider uses a microblade to release the tension on the fibrous bands, allowing your skin to regain a smoother texture. Since Cellfina has incisions at every dimple, it requires local anesthesia and takes longer than Avéli.

Avéli is the superior solution if you – like most women – have the general “rippling” type of cellulite instead of defined single dimples. Compared to Cellfina, Avéli stands out for its effectiveness, high satisfaction rate, and long-lasting results. It offers a comprehensive solution to cellulite, making it a preferred choice for many. This is why Dr. Teotia only offers Avéli in her practice.

How Can Avéli Cellulite Reduction Benefit You?

Though the results provided by Avéli are long-lasting, you can still take steps to prolong them by eating a balanced diet, having a consistent workout routine, and staying hydrated. These simple changes keep your skin looking smooth and healthy, while promoting your overall fitness and well-being.

Cosmetic procedures help jump-start a healthier lifestyle for many people. After getting Avéli, you may find you are more motivated to maintain smoother skin by prioritizing your self-care and wellness. Eliminating cellulite can lead to improved physical health and a positive ripple effect in other areas of your life.
