The problem of cellulite is not uncommon, with close to 90% of women struggling with this unwanted skin condition. Although many procedures claim to treat it, few leave us truly satisfied.
Avéli™ is the new cosmetic medical technology that actually reduces the appearance of cellulite for smoother, dimple-free skin on the buttocks and thighs. This groundbreaking treatment is for patients discouraged by their skin appearance when wearing shorts, or bathing suits.
