Can Early QWO® Injections Prevent Cellulite from Ever Forming?

By: Dr. Christopher Khorsandi


Cellulite is one of the most frustrating skin conditions around. It's unattractive and has a bad reputation for being difficult to treat. The good news is that if you have cellulite in the buttocks, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi can perform cellulite injections to reduce the appearance of dimpled skin and make you appear more youthful.

While QWO injections in Las Vegas, NV can't prevent cellulite from forming in the first place, the professionals at VIP Plastic Surgery can ensure dramatic results that make your skin appear smoother and firmer. Contact us about this noninvasive procedure and how it compares to other, less effective cellulite treatments in the area.

What's cellulite?

Cellulite is a condition that affects different parts of the body, but it's very common in the buttocks. Fat cells push against connective tissue under the skin, creating an uneven surface that appears dimpled, similar to an orange peel. While cellulite in the buttocks doesn't cause any health problems, it can make you feel less than confident about your skin. You may even cover up your figure with clothing to avoid showing off cellulite.

Are there other ways to treat cellulite?

If you have cellulite in the buttocks, creams or other over-the-counter products aren't going to be as effective as you want. While some products might reduce the appearance of cellulite, most won't have a lasting effect on your skin – and the ones that do work need a continual application for their benefits to last. And though many people turn to methods like exercise to reduce cellulite, it isn't likely to be enough.

How does QWO help?

QWO is a cellulite reduction treatment that breaks up the fibrous tissue that causes dimpled skin. Because the injection is nonsurgical and can provide long-lasting results, QWO injections are one of our most popular procedures in Las Vegas, NV for reducing moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks. Cellulite injections take less than 30 minutes and can be performed in one of our comfortable treatment rooms. Benefits of QWO include:

  • Injections are minimally invasive, so you can get cellulite treated in a short amount of time

  • We've performed thousands of cellulite treatments with QWO, and most patients see a noticeable difference in the appearance of their skin

  • This procedure may be the perfect solution for anyone who finds that over-the-counter creams aren't enough to get rid of cellulite and tighten up their skin

Which areas can I treat with QWO?

QWO has many advantages over other cellulite reduction treatments. One of the main reasons patients choose this nonsurgical approach is that it doesn't damage surrounding tissue, so you're able to walk out of our office with results that last for up to a year or more. Patients should keep in mind that QWO injections cannot prevent cellulite and are only approved for treating cellulite in the buttocks, so if you have concerns about other areas, please let Dr. Khorsandi know.

Minimally invasive cellulite injections

QWO injections might just be the answer to all of your cellulite problems. If you are looking for a way to reduce the formation of these unsightly bumps, call board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi at VIP Plastic Surgery about cellulite treatment. While there is no way to prevent cellulite from forming in the first place, our Las Vegas, NV office can be your first and only stop on the road to smoother skin.
