Avéli is truly the latest and greatest treatment for reducing the most obvious signs of cellulite in the most common problem areas.
The cellulite problem
Not only has cellulite been a problem for patients, but cellulite treatments have been a problem for providers.
Most cellulite treatments are very poorly rated.
They fail to meet the expectations of about 3-7 out of every 10 patients treated.
Non-surgical cosmetic treatments are traditionally a bit of a gamble, with some providers—who have invested hundreds of thousands of dollars into equipment—over promising results, not to mention that with surgery things like excess skin and tissue are physically removed, while with fat-freezing tech and other energy-based treatments, conditions are treated indirectly, on a via.
Cellulite treatments that existed before Avéli came out were among the lowest-rated categories of patient procedures.
Patient satisfaction rates numbered in the low 30s – 60s for many of them.
Avéli promises to be different—and it may well be—but on the whole, it’s too new to determine a real patient satisfaction rate for it.
(By way of comparison, a cellulite treatment released last year had patient satisfaction rates of 55% in trials, but these numbers dropped by 10 percent when paying patients had the procedure—at least according to the most popular patient review platform, RealSelf.com.)
Avéli cellulite treatment costs
The cost of the new FDA-cleared cellulite treatment Avéli ranges from $3,500-$5,000 to treat the average patient’s cellulite concerns, which tend to be the buttocks and upper thighs.
Avéli relies on a handheld device that is inserted into the skin in order to cut the specific fibrous tissues that are holding down the surface of your buttock and thigh skin, causing those unwanted dimples, divots, and orange-peel-like texture.
Because each dimple is individually treated, the more of them you wish to treat with Avéli, the more costly treatment will be, with $3,500 being on the low end and $5,000 being on the high end.
At this price point, Avéli is approximately 50% more expensive than Qwo, a cellulite treatment released last year, but in line with other cellulite treatments including Cellfina and Cellulaze.

As with any cosmetic procedure, the cost of Avéli will vary from person to person and will depend upon the number of cellulite dimples you wish to have treated.
All treatments will start at a base cost (which likewise varies from provider to provider), and on top of that additional costs will be added to cover the number of dimples you want to address.
Your cost won’t be per dimple, but it will increase or decrease roughly in relation to the amount of treatment you want.
For example, telling your provider you don’t want this and that dimple treated, but that you do want others won’t necessarily lower your out-of-pocket cost.
After a short personal consultation, you’ll be given an exact price by your provider.
