Cellulite Reduction



Zelko Aesthetics in Milwaukee and Naperville is thrilled to offer Tickle Smooth by Avéli™, a revolutionary procedure for achieving long-lasting cellulite reduction. Cellulite is a common concern among women, characterized by dimples on the skin’s surface, typically on the thighs or buttocks. The primary structural cause of cellulite is the fibrous bands called septa, which tether the skin to underlying structures.

Does Tickle Smooth by Avéli only treat cellulite dimples?

Tickle Smooth by Avéli™ treats the septa bands causing cellulite dimples from the inside-out. It is not a procedure that addresses other concerns often seen alongside cellulite, such as laxity or pockets of fat.

A typical Tickle Smooth by Avéli™ procedure will take around an hour, including local anesthesia and the procedure itself. The exact timing will vary depending on your personalized procedure plan from Dr. Zelko.

Little to none. In the clinical study, most patients returned to normal activities within 24-48 hours.

Are there any side effects?

Can I work out or exercise after the procedure?

It is recommended to avoid any strenuous activities or workouts in the first few days/weeks after the procedure to allow the area to heal.

How quickly will I see improvement in my cellulite?
