Many women struggle with the appearance of cellulite on their body. However, it’s more common than most people believe, nine out of every 10 women have cellulite. Even though it doesn’t cause any known health problems, it is very damaging to one’s self-esteem.
Cellulite is most often located on one’s buttocks, thighs, stomach, knees, and arms. You can usually identify cellulite by its telltale “orange peel texture.” Thankfully, advancements in medical science are providing new ways to minimize the appearance of cellulite.
We’re proud to offer one of the most cutting-edge solutions at Yarish Plastic Surgery in Houston and Lake Jackson. Qwo, a non-surgical cellulite treatment, targets cellulite production at its roots, and it helps patients achieve the smooth contour they desire.

How Is Cellulite Formed?
In the skin and muscle, the underlying fat is separated by collagen bands into multiple pockets. Those strands of collagen pull downward on the skin’s surface, which causes depressions and herniation of fat upwards. This happens more often in women than it does with men because of how female bodies store fat.
It’s a common occurrence, but some individuals are more prone to cellulite production than others. Genes and hormones also play a huge role, as does lifestyle, amount of estrogen production, body fat percentage, age, and skin thickness.
Non-Surgical Cellulite Treatment in Houston And Lake Jackson
So far, there is no known “cure” for cellulite. In addition, natural weight loss and weight loss surgery will not get rid of cellulite because it’s not the same as regular excess fat. But luckily, there is a new, FDA-approved, way to treat cellulite that is not only minimally-invasive but has a fantastic track record of providing some of the best, long-lasting results compared to anything else on the market. It’s truly one of a kind — Qwo Cellulite Treatment.
At Yarish Plastic Surgery, we always make an effort to make sure you’re comfortable during your visits and pleased by your results time and time again. We’re so excited to now offer the Qwo Cellulite Treatment in Houston and Lake Jackson.
What is Qwo Cellulite Treatment?
Qwo is a unique injectable treatment that eliminates cellulite at the source by releasing the tethering band that causes dimples.
Undergoing our Qwo Cellulite Treatment in Houston and Lake Jackson is a fantastic alternative to the other cellulite procedures, such as massage, topical products, or radiofrequency. That’s because Qwo is minimally invasive, and it shows tangible results.
Reducing Cellulite With Qwo in Houston And Lake Jackson
So how does non-surgical cellulite treatment work? It’s simple.
- It targets the root cause of the cellulite
- It breaks up the bands that cause skin dimples
- It makes room for new collagen to be produced
- It smoothes dimples in your skin
Qwo Cellulite Treatment is made from an enzyme that dissolves the fibrous bands underneath the skin that cause cellulite. These enzymes, or “collagenases,” target the root cause of cellulite so that it’s difficult for it to reappear. After it’s broken up those fibrous bands, it leaves more room for redistribution of fat cells, which stimulates new, healthy collagen growth.
Your provider in Lake Jackson or Houston will inject your Qwo Cellulite Treatment directly into the targeted dimples on the buttocks or thighs. That’s when those enzymes get to work. It releases the septae, which makes those dimples smoother and significantly reduces the appearance of your cellulite.
What to Expect When Getting Qwo Cellulite Treatment in Houston And Lake Jackson
No surgery is needed with Qwo Cellulite Treatments, so you don’t have to worry about extensive downtime or going under the knife.
When you come into one of our offices, our providers will assess your dimples on your buttocks or thighs to see if you are a good candidate for Qwo. They will map out the locations of your dimples and then perform the procedure.
Treatments typically take about 10-15 minutes.It’s so fast and easy that you can do it on your lunch break. You should see your dimpling diminish after every session and can even start seeing results after the first three weeks.
It’s also an essentially painless procedure, so expect to feel little-to-no discomfort. However, you may feel a tiny pinch, even less than what you’d experience with botox.
Three sessions of injections are typically recommended for optimal correction. Our staff will schedule each of your Qwo Cellulite Treatment visits between three to four weeks apart.
As for side effects, you can experience some injection site pain, swelling, redness, a warm sensation, skin discoloration at the injection site, and formation of nodules. However, these side effects do not last too long. The most common side effect is bruising.
To minimize complications, stop blood thinners a week before your procedure. Ice the treatment areas multiple times per day for two days after your visit and wear a compression garment for a week. Additionally, supplements like arnica can help minimize bruising.

How to Extend Qwo Cellulite Treatment Results
While Qwo dramatically reduces the appearance of cellulite, you can take preventive measures to maintain your results. Maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle is the best way to keep your desired look. In addition, you can utilize these tips to further aid the procedure:
- Drink water: Water flushes out toxins that cause cellulite. Drinking enough water can help prevent the appearance of new cellulite. It’s recommended that you drink at least eight glasses per day.
- Stop smoking: Everyone knows the obvious negative impacts on health that come with smoking. But did you know smoking also damages your skin cells and collagen? Therefore, it’s actively impairing the functions that prevent cellulite from forming.
- Stay active: You can minimize fat deposits and keep your connective tissues in good shape by simply improving your circulation via exercise.
- Avoid tanning beds: Harmful UV rays can have horrible impacts on your skin and leave the texture less than ideal, increasing cellulite’s appearance.
