If you deal with cellulite, you know how it can affect your appearance, especially when wearing more revealing clothing. Today, we will talk about what causes cellulite and how it can be effectively treated with a solution known as Aveli™.
What Is Cellulite?
Cellulite is best described as areas on the body that have a dimpling effect. These areas typically have an orange peel or cottage cheese appearance, and they are most common on the hips, buttocks, abdomen, and thighs. Although this condition is generally associated with obesity or weight gain, it can also occur in women who are otherwise at a healthy weight.
What Causes Cellulite?
There are many theories about what causes cellulite. But studies continue to show that cellulite is formed due to structural differences in the connective tissue beneath the skin’s surface. There are tight bands that form underneath the skin, and excess fat can push up between these tethers to cause the dimpling appearance associated with cellulite on the buttocks, hips, and thighs. While there have been many solutions on the market that claim to eliminate or reduce cellulite, including special massage techniques or creams, the only way to truly improve cellulite is to break up these tight fibrous bands to smooth the skin. At the practice of Dr. Rachel Walker in Dallas, TX, this is achieved with a specialized treatment called Aveli™.
How Does Aveli™ Work To Treat Cellulite?
Using a specialized light, hook, and blade, Dr. Rachel Walker uses Aveli™ as a way to break up the bands underneath the skin. The light illuminates the skin to make these bands visible, and the hook and blade are used to sever the bands using the retractable blade. The result is smoother skin and reduced cellulite, thanks to treatment right at the source!
