With so many cellulite “remedies” out there promising smooth, dimple-free skin, it’s only natural to wonder: Do cellulite treatments actually work? In this blog post, we’ll break down what causes cellulite and take a closer look at what works, what doesn’t, and why an innovative procedure like Aveli may be the solution you’ve been seeking.

What Is Cellulite? 

Cellulite is a common condition that creates textural irregularities in the skin. If you think it’s a result of excess fat or skin laxity, you may be surprised to learn that what causes cellulite is, instead, the connective tissues beneath your skin. These fibrous bands, called septa, act as anchors for the skin’s underlying tissue; when they get too stiff or start to shrink, fat squeezes up between them, causing dimples in the skin to appear.

While age, hormonal changes, and lifestyle factors can all affect the severity of cellulite, the truth is, if you’re an adult female, you’ll likely develop cellulite on your thighs or buttocks at some point in your life. Up to 90% of women have it.

This isn’t us being defeatist, either! Cellulite affects all body types (including fit, healthy, and active people), and there’s no shame in having it. But if you want to even out your skin, you’ll need to approach your options critically.

Evaluating Cellulite Reduction Treatments 

Various treatments are available to reduce the appearance of cellulite, ranging from “natural” remedies to professional procedures. An at-home cellulite treatment may include topical creams, dry brushing, or massage techniques to improve your circulation and skin texture.

Professional treatments, meanwhile, may involve interventions, such as massage therapy, cupping, microneedling, and laser treatments to address fat deposits, improve skin elasticity, and boost collagen.

However, these treatments often focus on surface-level improvements and typically do not address the underlying structural issues contributing to cellulite formation. This outside-in approach may have some cosmetic benefits, but it won’t give you the lasting results and tangible improvements you want—which can create confusion and frustration over what actually works.

Introducing Aveli: Evidence-Based Cellulite Reduction

Aveli offers an innovative approach to cellulite reduction that addresses the root cause of cellulite formation. Unlike traditional cellulite “treatments,” Aveli targets the septa bands beneath the skin. By releasing tension in these bands, Aveli effectively smooths out the dimpled areas and improves your overall skin texture.

Aveli requires only a single in-office procedure to deliver long-lasting results. Your provider gets real-time confirmation that the septa band causing the dimple has been released, meaning you get the most targeted and effective treatment possible.

While Aveli does not treat excess fat or lax skin, you can still get the full benefits by combining it with a treatment such as BodyTite (learn more in our related blog post). During your consultation, we’ll create a personalized treatment plan to meet your cosmetic goals.

Most so-called cellulite reduction treatments can’t deliver the results they promise because they fundamentally ignore the root cause of cellulite. Aveli is a unique procedure that targets the septa bands and restores a smooth, even texture to your skin.
