By: Dr. Christopher Khorsandi


Even young, healthy, and fit women can struggle with cellulite. In fact, many teenagers and young adults develop cellulite that leaves them feeling embarrassed and self-conscious about showing off their skin. At VIP Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, NV, acclaimed board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi understands how frustrating it can be to live with cellulite and is proud to offer a wide range of cellulite reduction treatments to help patients feel comfortable, confident, and sexy in their own skin. Learn more about one of the newest and most exciting cellulite solutions available today, QWO injections, and find out if you may qualify for this life-changing treatment.

Why do I have cellulite at a young age?

Cellulite is most common among adult women, though it can affect virtually anyone. There are a number of factors that increase a person’s risk of developing cellulite, including:

  • Being a woman
  • Obesity
  • Smoking
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Hormone conditions
  • Vascular conditions
  • Water retention
  • Age
  • Genetics

Technically speaking, however, cellulite is caused by firm or hardened septae between the layers of skin and muscle. When these fibrous septae become tight, they cause the surrounding fat lobules to bulge, creating the classic dimpled and rippled appearance of cellulite.

What’s the most effective treatment for cellulite?

With virtually endless options available for reducing cellulite, it can be challenging to understand which ones work best, or even which ones work at all. Without a doubt, professional cellulite reduction treatments are able to provide the most compelling and longest-lasting results.

To determine which cellulite treatment is right for you, Dr. Khorsandi will evaluate the potential cause of your cellulite, examine the nature and location of your cellulite, and discuss your personal concerns and goals. Based on this information, Dr. Khorsandi may recommend one of the following Las Vegas cellulite reduction treatments offered at VIP Plastic Surgery:

  • Thermage
  • Fractora
  • VaserShape
  • QWO injections

How does QWO get rid of cellulite?

QWO injections are one of the newest and most exciting cellulite treatments available today. Unlike other treatments that target fat cells or manually severe septae, QWO injections swiftly and conveniently dissolve the fibrous septae responsible for cellulite enzymatically, leaving patients with dramatically smoother skin.

Is there a minimum age limit for QWO cellulite injections?

QWO injections are FDA approved for treating cellulite in the buttocks of women aged 18 – 78. During your initial consultation for QWO in Las Vegas, Dr. Khorsandi will discuss your concerns, evaluate your overall health and emotional maturity, and determine whether QWO injections may be right for you. Patients considering QWO for cellulite should have realistic expectations for their results and understand the risks of undergoing cosmetic treatment.

How long does QWO last?

One particularly compelling benefit of using QWO at a young age is that the results may last indefinitely. For many patients, QWO offers a long-term reduction in the appearance of cellulite when combined with a consistent diet and regular exercise routine.
