How Qwo Treats Cellulite In The Buttocks With An Injection

By: Dr. Christopher Khorsandi


It’s difficult to find a cosmetic complaint as widespread and frustrating as cellulite. Women, in particular, often struggle with dimpled skin and cellulite on their buttocks, despite a healthy diet and consistent exercise. The few treatments and procedures on the market may provide some improvements, but they are typically mild, short-lived, and inconsistent. Surgical procedures can also present problems in terms of cost, recovery time, and risk factors. Renowned board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi and the expert team at VIP Plastic Surgery are proud to be among the first providers in the nation to offer the brand-new FDA-approved Qwo™ cellulite reduction injection in Las Vegas, NV. Learn more about Qwo, the first and only injectable solution for cellulite on the buttocks, and find out if it's right for you.

What causes cellulite?

The technical cause of cellulite is a tethering of muscle to tissue with fibrous bands, called septae, that cause bulging pockets of fat. This contributes to the classic dimpled texture and appearance of cellulite. One common misconception about cellulite is that it only affects women who are overweight. In reality, virtually anyone can develop cellulite. In fact, even healthy, thin, fit individuals often struggle with cellulite in various areas, including the buttocks and thighs. Some factors that may contribute to cellulite in certain people include:

  • Gender (female)
  • Age (over 25)
  • Genetics
  • Hormones
  • Diet
  • Lifestyle
  • Being overweight

How do you get rid of cellulite?

Unfortunately, getting rid of cellulite on your own is unlikely. While some women may see a mild improvement in their cellulite with diet and exercise, other patients actually experience worsening cellulite and wrinkled skin with weight loss. Lotions, creams, and pills promising cellulite smoothing are often ineffective and/or not ideal for treating more serious complaints. Previously, surgical release of the fibrous septae was the most promising option, but many patients are unable, unwilling, or uninterested in going under the knife. With the recent introduction of Qwo, a cellulite-smoothing injectable, minimally invasive, and effective cellulite reduction is finally possible.

What is Qwo?

Qwo is an FDA-approved injectable cellulite reduction treatment that uses a specialized formula to enzymatically release the fibrous septae that cause the dimpled appearance of cellulite in a woman’s buttocks. Because the injection is nonsurgical and can provide dramatic, long-lasting results, Qwo is quickly becoming one of the most in-demand products for treating moderate to severe cellulite in women.

How does Qwo work?

During a Qwo injection in Las Vegas, which typically takes less than 30 minutes, patients will lie comfortably in one of our treatment rooms. Once the area has been cleansed, Dr. Khorsandi will strategically mark his injection sites and proceed with administering the injectable. Most patients tolerate Qwo injections well with little discomfort and no need for topical anesthetics. Following a Qwo injection, patients should expect some bruising and swelling. Because bruising may last up to two weeks after treatment, patients should plan their activities and time their Qwo injections accordingly.

How many Qwo injections do you need?

While every patient is different, most women require an average of three Qwo treatments to achieve their desired outcome. During your initial consultation, Dr. Khorsandi will evaluate the severity of your concerns and help you determine the most appropriate injection schedule for you.

How long does Qwo cellulite injection last?

One of the most exciting aspects of Qwo cellulite injection is that Qwo results can last for up to a year or more before a repeat injection is needed. Many women begin to incorporate this into their cosmetic routine alongside their regular filler injections, laser treatments, and other procedures for convenient maintenance.
