Nonsurgical Cellulite Treatment in Miami, FL

Miami: a city of sun, sand and endless summers. A place where cultures collide into a vibrant mosaic of art, music, food and fashion, and where skin is not just seen but celebrated.

In spite of the inviting climate, cellulite may leave you feeling less than confident in shorts, skirts and swimwear. Those all-too-familiar dimples affect more than 80 percent of all women and 10 percent of all men, and they are famously difficult to eradicate.

Avéli is a new cellulite reduction treatment available at Pure Plastic Surgery. One session is your ticket to smoother skin and embracing every Miami moment with confidence.

What Is Cellulite and Why Does It Occur?

Cellulite may be common, but it is also commonly misunderstood. Those dimples are not always the result of loose skin, excess weight or unhealthy lifestyle choices. The cleanest diet and most rigorous workout routine may do nothing to reduce it. And the topical creams that promise big results? Prepare for big disappointment.

The truth is that cellulite is a more complex issue. One of its primary causes is fibrous bands called septa that tether your skin to the deeper tissues below. Between your skin and the deeper tissues exists a layer of subcutaneous fat. Over time, the septa can stiffen and shrink, causing them to pull down on your skin and forcing the subcutaneous fat to bulge outward. This is what creates the dimples we recognize as cellulite.

Cellulite is predominantly seen in women due to the way fat, muscle and connective tissue are distributed in women’s bodies. Skin aging and hormonal factors also play roles in cellulite formation. Most importantly, genetics predispose certain individuals to cellulite, meaning it can occur regardless of age, body type or fitness level.

In other words, cellulite is a natural part of the body’s composition and not necessarily an indicator of health or lifestyle choices.

What Is Avéli?

Avéli is an FDA-cleared, minimally-invasive treatment designed to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Although many products and treatments promise to get rid of dimples in areas like the butt or thighs, Avéli can produce long-term results with a single treatment. In fact, it’s one of the most effective options available for achieving smoother, dimple-free skin.

Avéli works by releasing the fibrous septa bands that cause cellulite through tiny insertion points, allowing the skin to lift upward and smooth. This quick, in-office procedure provides both immediate and lasting results with minimal downtime. You may return home right away and resume normal activities in 24 to 48 hours.

  • In-office treatment
  • Directly addresses a structural cause of cellulite
  • Effective across a range of skin and body types
  • Performed under local anesthesia

  • Delivers lasting results with a single procedure

“My experience at Pure was everything you’d want in the process of investing in yourself. From the beginning of speaking to the staff about your procedure to post op and all the details in between they’re phenomenal!!” — Shena S.

Who Is a Good Candidate for This Miami Cellulite Treatment?

One of the reasons we love Avéli is that it works alongside your healthy lifestyle to help you reach your body goals. At Pure Plastic Surgery, we often hear complaints that you are exercising regularly and have a healthy diet, but you just can’t get rid of cellulite no matter what you do. This is where Avéli shines.

The best candidates for Avéli are patients who are at or near their ideal weight and have good skin elasticity (i.e., no sagging skin or laxity). You may not be a good candidate if you’ve had liposuction on the treatment area before. You should be in overall good health and able to take one to two weeks away from intensive activity.

During a consultation with our team, led by Dr. S. Alexander Earle, Dr. Natalia Vidal and Dr. Garret Wegerif, we will determine if Avéli is the best option for your cosmetic goals. Book your virtual consultation today.

How Does Avéli Work?

Avéli is the only minimally-invasive procedure that uses a handheld device to manually release the septa bands causing cellulite. Your provider will first administer a local anesthetic to ensure you remain comfortable throughout the treatment.

Once the area is numbed, your provider will guide the Avéli device (a narrow wand with a retractable blade) under the skin to the targeted area and use it to sever the septa bands individually. The results can be seen right away, so you and your provider both have real-time confirmation the treatment is working.

A typical Avéli treatment session takes about one hour, depending on the severity of the cellulite and number of treatment areas.

Avéli Frequently Asked Questions

What body areas can Avéli treat?

Avéli is FDA-cleared for reducing the appearance of cellulite in the thighs, hips and buttocks of adult women.

Is Avéli painful?

We use a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort during the procedure. Afterward, you may feel some discomfort in the treated areas, particularly while sitting down. This discomfort typically fades within a day or two.

What side effects may occur after an Avéli treatment?

The most common side effects include mild pain, bruising and tenderness to the touch that may take up to one month to resolve. Some patients may experience small areas of firmness, which are usually neither visible nor painful, resolving within a few months. Overall, Avéli is considered safe for most healthy individuals.

Is there an effective natural way to get rid of cellulite?

There is no completely effective natural or DIY way to eliminate cellulite. This includes weight loss, exercise, diet, topical creams or massage. While these methods may diminish the visibility of cellulite and improve the appearance of your body overall, they cannot match the efficacy of in-office treatments like Avéli for cellulite reduction.

Is Avéli a weight loss or skin tightening procedure?

Avéli is specifically designed to reduce cellulite dimples on the buttocks and thighs. It does not address other issues that may accompany cellulite, such as skin laxity or excess fat. If you are interested in treating these concerns, we have both surgical and nonsurgical options for body contouring.

What Is Recovery Like After an Avéli Treatment?

Some swelling and bruising are expected initially. You may also experience some soreness when you sit down. Our team will give you detailed instructions on the best ways to manage these side effects. It may take up to 30 days for them to resolve fully.

You should avoid exercise and strenuous activity during the first one to two weeks, especially lower body exercises. We strongly recommend avoiding sun exposure for the first month and wearing SPF 30+ daily on the treated area.

Outside of these restrictions, little or no downtime is required. Most patients return to work and social activities within one to two days.

What Results Can Avéli Achieve?

The preliminary results of your Avéli treatment will be apparent as soon as your provider releases the septa. The full impact is generally visible within a few weeks, at which point you should notice significant improvements in the appearance of the treated area with smoother skin and a firmer look.

Avéli is designed to be a single-session procedure. You can expect long-term results as long as you maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.
