Boosting Your Avéli™ Results: Lifestyle Habits for Maintaining Smoother Skin

With about 90 percent of women experiencing cellulite concerns with their lower bodies, it is no wonder Avéli™ has been so rapidly embraced in the world of aesthetic body treatments. If you are unfamiliar with Avéli, we want to share a brief explanation of what it is, how it works, and why so many are embracing the procedure. We will also explore how you can boost Avéli results and lifestyle habits that will promote and maintain smoother skin.

What Is Avéli?

Avéli is a minimally invasive procedure that treats unsightly cellulite in the lower body at its root cause.

How Avéli Works

Avéli releases the small bands that create the unsightly cottage cheese-type appearance of fatty tissue under the skin. Once these bands are cut, the result is smoother, more appealing-looking skin.

Benefits of Avéli

Avéli has become popular because it is minimally invasive and effective. Patients see results quickly, and the procedure generally lasts for less than an hour. Results are longer-lasting than alternatives, and treatments are safe.

Lifestyle Habits for Smoother Skin

If you are interested in smoother, younger-looking skin, there are multiple lifestyle habits you can embrace.

Eat Healthier

Your diet plays a significant role in the texture of your skin. A healthy diet that minimizes processed foods and includes fresh fruits and vegetables can be very beneficial.

Stay Hydrated

Drinking plenty of fluids can provide quick results for improved skin. Drink plenty of water each and every day.

Reduce Stress

Stress can negatively impact many areas of your life, including the texture and smoothness of your skin. Spending quiet time alone, deep breathing and meditation can help you decompress.


Daily exercise can help skin elasticity and promote blood flow. It helps deliver nutrients throughout the body, including the skin.

Sun Protection

Protect your skin from the sun by wearing long sleeves, hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen. For smoother skin, it’s also advisable to reduce your sun exposure.


Gentle exfoliation followed by a quality, organic moisturizer can promote supple skin that is smooth and attractive.

Plenty of Sleep

The value of sleep is underestimated as part of caring for your skin. It can serve to rejuvenate the mind, spirit, body, and skin.

Avéli® Cellulite Reduction: A Non-Surgical Solution for Smoother Skin

Cellulite is a persistent condition that results in the appearance of dimpled skin, often referred to as orange-peel skin. There are various factors that contribute to this, such as fat cells, hormones, genetics, lifestyle choices, and age. Cellulite can be influenced by weight gain, but it can also impact individuals who have a slender physique. While improving your body composition and targeting specific muscle groups can help reduce the appearance of cellulite in areas like the legs, buttocks, and abdomen, it’s important to note that cellulite may not always completely disappear. Fortunately, people now have the option to experience Avéli®, a non-surgical treatment specifically developed for effective cellulite reduction.

How Does It Work?

Avéli is a cutting-edge, FDA-cleared, non-surgical treatment that effectively reduces the appearance of cellulite. This procedure is performed by inserting a device beneath the skin of specific areas, like the thighs and buttocks, using small incisions. The device then targets and addresses the underlying causes of cellulite.

Specifically, Avéli works by:

  • Precisely cutting the subdermal bands of connective tissue beneath the skin, called septa, which are responsible for cellulite. This allows the skin to smooth itself.
  • Using laser energy under the skin’s surface to heat and break down fat cells
  • Stimulating collagen production and increasing blood circulation to support healthy skin generation

Benefits of Cellulite Reduction With Avéli

By targeting and breaking apart the fibrous bands that cause the skin to dimple, Avéli can help reduce cellulite and create smoother skin. Patients typically notice initial results within 14 days following treatment, with more noticeable changes occurring after 30 days.

Avéli is an FDA-cleared treatment that offers a single treatment option. This means that instead of having to come back for multiple sessions, just one treatment can effectively improve the appearance of your skin by reducing cellulite, especially in the thighs and buttocks.

Combining Non-Surgical Treatments: Maximizing Results for a Refreshed Look

While there are many great non-surgical treatment combinations available, one of the best treatment combinations is Morpheus8 and Aveli treatment. These two procedures complement each other nicely and go hand and hand to maximize each other’s results. Here is everything you need to know about the two and how they can transform your look completely. 

What Are Morpheus8 and Aveli?

Morpheus8 and Aveli are two non-invasive procedures that help transform the skin completely and complement each other very well. Aveli is typically done after Morpheus8 as it can help boost results and improve your skin texture and quality.


Morpheus8 is a safe and non-invasive treatment that can help reverse the effects of aging seen on your skin. With no surgery and very little to no downtime, this procedure is reliable, effective, and comfortable. Years of wrinkles, sun spots, discoloration, and other unwanted skin concerns can be reduced by this treatment. 

This treatment can also help with acne scars, stretch marks, and so much more. Many areas of the body can be treated by this procedure including the entire face, neck, arms, abdomen, and more. 


Aveli is a minimally invasive procedure that helps reduce cellulite. This cellulite treatment is a one-time treatment and can yield amazing results relatively quickly. Aveli has almost no downtime. 

This treatment works to reduce the appearance of cellulite on the thighs and buttocks and works to target the fat beneath the skin and address the underlying issue. Patients can expect reduced appearance of cellulite after each treatment session with overall results appearing in as little as one month.

Treatment Combination Results

Combining these two treatments can yield amazing results. They both work to revitalize the skin, restore youthfulness, and enhance your appearance and beauty. Your skin will begin to look and feel smoother and softer. Not only will these treatments reduce years of aging and other unwanted skin conditions, but you feel more confident and happy after every treatment.

What Is Aveli Cellulite Treatment and How Does It Work?

Cellulite is a common skin condition that affects many people, particularly women—up to 90 percent of women at some point throughout their lives. Typically, cellulite appears as dimpled skin caused by the irregular distribution of fat beneath the surface, giving the skin a lumpy, bumpy texture. While cellulite is not a health condition, according to many of our patients, it can still cause self-consciousness and embarrassment. Fortunately, the Body by Ravi team offers numerous treatment options, including Aveli Cellulite Treatment.

What Is the Aveli Cellulite Treatment?

The FDA-approved Aveli device offers a minimally invasive procedure that leverages laser technology to reduce the appearance of cellulite. The Aveli Cellulite Treatment works by delivering laser energy beneath the skin’s surface to heat and break apart fat cells, stimulate collagen production, and increase blood circulation. 

The treatment helps to reduce cellulite by targeting and breaking apart the fibrous bands that cause your skin to dimple. This smooths the surface of the skin and creates a more even texture. It also stimulates collagen production to increase skin firmness and elasticity. An Aveli Cellulite Treatment session lasts for around 90 minutes.

What Are the Benefits?

Aveli Cellulite Treatment is minimally invasive and requires little to no downtime. You can plan to return your regular schedule the same day as your appointment. Our patients love seeing the reduced appearance of cellulite, as well as smoothed, toned, and firmed skin. This type of cellulite treatment is long-lasting and the results can be further improved with additional treatments.

There is even research and studies to back up those results. One study published in Aesthetic Surgery Journal found that approximately 93% of patients who underwent Aveli Cellulite Treatment reported being satisfied with their results after one year. Another study published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery reported a visible reduction in the appearance of cellulite in all patients who received the treatment.

What Side Effects Could I Expect?

Our patients do not typically experience any negative side effects following the procedure. However, there are small chances of bruising, swelling, and discomfort around the treated area. These side effects are typically mild and resolve within a week or two. 

The Aveli Cellulite Treatment is a minimally invasive and effective option for reducing the appearance of cellulite. Schedule a consultation with the Body by Ravi plastic surgery center in Houston, TX to learn more today—call us at 832-937-3811 or visit us online to schedule your consultation.

How Anyone Can Glow From a Personalized Facial Treatment Plan

Looking your best doesn’t always require incisions and a lengthy recovery period. In fact, at Body by Ravi Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics, we offer a range of non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments that can produce a refreshed and more youthful appearance with no downtime at all. And among our most popular – and customizable options – is the HydraFacial®.

HydraFacial is a one-of-a-kind facial offering that involves a 3-step process to clean, exfoliate, and hydrate the skin. Gentle enough to require no downtime yet powerful enough to deliver noticeable results, HydraFacial can address several skin concerns, including:

  • Acne breakouts
  • Blackheads
  • Dull and tight skin
  • Overly large pores
  • Scaly, flaky, or dry skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Age spots
  • Red spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • And more

With patented Vortex-Fusion Technology, HydraFacial removes dirt, debris, and dead skin from deep within the pores, leaving the skin refreshed and clean. Exfoliation follows cleansing, allowing for easier extraction of blackheads and other deep blemishes. Hydration, along with a powerful serum that combines antioxidants, peptides, collagen, and more, rounds out the treatment, helping to seal results and stimulate healthy skin renewal.

Dr. Gopathi is Here to Help

There is no “one-size-fits-all” treatment approach for rejuvenating and refreshing each person’s appearance. That’s why it makes sense to work with an experienced and attentive anti-aging and cosmetic specialist like Dr. Swapna Gopathi. With more than a decade of experience, Dr. Gopathi knows how to customize facial treatment plans to address each individual’s concerns and produce natural-looking and incredibly pleasing results.

Every step of the HydraFacial process is customizable. From suction strength to serum boosters, each phase enables Dr. Gopathi to address your specific concerns. What’s more, HydraFacial is suitable for every skin type and tone, and is safe and effective for people of all ages. However, it may take more than one treatment to achieve desirable results. Because the HydraFacial is non-surgical and non-invasive, you may need to visit our office every four to six weeks for a series of treatments before optimal outcomes are produced. During your initial consultation, Dr. Gopathi will carefully evaluate your areas of concern to help you determine how many treatments you may need to reach your specific goals.

Are you ready to learn how HydraFacial treatment can be customized for you? Please call our Houston office at 281-242-1061 to schedule your visit. We serve The Woodlands, Katy, Sugar Land, and all nearby areas of Texas.

Holiday Parties are in Season: Here are Three Low-Downtime Skin Rejuvenation Treatments to Consider


The Holidays are in full swing, bringing with them gatherings with friends, family, and co-workers. You can put your best face forward this year with a non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment.

At Body by Ravi Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics, board-certified anti-aging and cosmetic physician, Dr. Swapna Gopathi, offers a range of minimally-invasive treatments that can help restore a smooth, youthful, and glowing appearance to the skin. Call us today to schedule an appointment and learn how she can help you look your best this Holiday Season.

Non-Surgical Treatments for Holiday Rejuvenation

Most non-surgical options require little to no downtime, but some can produce swelling, redness, or other signs of treatment for one to two weeks. This close to the Holidays, it may not be possible to fully recover from those types of treatment before the parties begin. However, many options come with few, if any, side effects, and can even produce noticeable results within just a few short days.

Three low-downtime Holiday facial rejuvenation treatments to consider this year are:

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic. BOTOX softens dynamic wrinkles, such as frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet, and lip lines, to produce a smooth and more youthful appearance. Redness and swelling after treatment will quickly resolve, and results start to become visible within three to four days
  • Dermal Fillers. Fillers add volume to areas of the face that have become droopy, sunken, or hollow. Treatment areas include nasolabial folds, cheeks, tear troughs, temples, and more. Similar to BOTOX, some redness and swelling may be present for a few days after treatment, but these things will self-resolve. And results with the fillers we offer are immediate, though improvements will continue for one to two weeks
  • HydraFacial®. HydraFacial offers immediate rejuvenation of the skin. This three-part process cleanses, exfoliates, and hydrates the skin to address skin laxity, texture and tone irregularities, sun and age spots, wrinkles, and more. There is no downtime with HydraFacial. It is gentle enough to be performed every month

Several non-surgical treatments can help you look amazing just in time for your Holiday parties. The best way to learn which might be best for you is through a consultation with Dr. Gopathi. Call our Houston office at 281-242-1061 to schedule yours today.

Four Ways to Rejuvenate Your Skin During the Winter Months

During the winter months, cooler temperatures and reduced moisture can combine to irritate and dry the skin. Even in Houston, where it seldom gets below 40 degrees, skin irritation, redness, and flaking are all fairly common during the winter months – and these things can exacerbate skin aging, enhance the appearance of wrinkles, and result in general skin dullness.

Fortunately, several treatments are designed to address environmental damage and restore healthy-looking skin year-round. At Body by Ravi Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics, board-certified anti-aging and cosmetic physician, Swapna Gopathi, MD, is pleased to offer the most advanced and efficacious solutions available.

Who Should be Your Injector? A Nurse or a Doctor?

Injectable cosmetic treatments are trendy in the United States for good reason: versatile, efficacious, and safe, these non-surgical treatments can address many concerns to produce a more youthful and appealing appearance without incisions, sutures, or a lengthy recovery period.

At Body by Ravi Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics, injectable treatments we offer include:

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic. BOTOX is used to soften fine lines and deep wrinkles, including crow’s feet and frown lines, in addition to decreasing a bulky jawline, smoothing pebbly chin, and removing neck bands
  • Dermal Fillers. Fillers add volume, addressing hollowness at the cheeks, deep nasolabial and marionette lines, and at the chin, along with deep wrinkles and skin laxity throughout the face. Some fillers can also be used for safe and long-lasting lip augmentation

These same services are available at various med spas and salons throughout Texas, where they may be performed by a registered nurse or physician’s assistant. At Body by Ravi Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics, they are performed by Dr. Swapna Gopathi, a board-certified anti-aging and cosmetic physician.

Why Choose a Doctor for Injections?

Nurses and physician assistants serve essential functions and have undergone training to work alongside physicians to deal with various medical issues. However, even the most highly trained RN or PA will not have anywhere near the level of education and amount of training required to become a doctor.

Choosing a doctor who is board certified in cosmetic and anti-aging procedures means selecting someone explicitly trained in aesthetic improvements. It also places you in the hands of someone who knows how to reduce the risk of complications and quickly address them should they arise. Dr. Gopathi’s eye for natural results helps her patients become more confident while still looking like themselves.

Attentive, careful, and precise, Dr. Gopathi is exceptionally skillful at facial profile optimization with injectables and other non-surgical treatments. Fully committed to patient safety and satisfaction, she is here to listen to your concerns, assess your problem areas, and provide the exact treatments needed to produce your desired results.

Please call Body by Ravi Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics at 281-242-1061 to schedule your consultation with Dr. Gopathi today. Located in Houston, we serve all nearby communities, including Memorial, The Woodlands, Katy, Conroe, Spring, and Sugar Land.
