What is Cellulite Reduction?
No matter if you are thin or overweight, young or old, cellulite can happen to you. We understand that you want to look your best, and cellulite can keep you from having a positive body image.

Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Vu Ho uses various forms of this treatment, including QWO®, VelaShape®, ZWave, and BellaPlasma lifts, to target the structural causes of cellulite and body fat, which reside beneath the skin. These procedures do what diet and exercise can’t by reducing unattractive lumpiness under the skin of your buttocks, arms, abdomen, flanks, and/or upper thighs.

Cellulite Reduction Reviews
"My underarms would be soaked in sweat just from sitting - Dr. Vu Ho has been a Godsend! It's been a week since I have gotten the Morpheus for underarm sweating and let me tell you it has changed my life. After years, and when I say years, I mean since my teenage years, I've had an underarm sweating problem. My underarms would be soaked in sweat just from sitting still, which I couldn't understand. I've used underarm pads, prescription creams, botox, and oral drugs, but nothing worked. If you are looking for someone to help you with embarrassing underarm sweating, Dr. Ho is the best with Morpheus8. This has been the best decision I've made and I thank Dr. Ho for that!"- H. / RealSelf / Jan 31, 2021

Updated on 28 May 2021: It has been a month since I received the second treatment of the Morpheus8 to stop my horrendous underarm sweating. With the second treatment there wasn't as much swelling, soreness, and bruising as the first treatment. The little soreness that I did have went away in about a week. Again, since a teen, I have tried so many options to stop my sweating and this is the only thing that has really helped me. Morpheus8 for underarm sweating has been a blessing and has stopped me from wearing light jackets and sweaters to hide my underarm sweat because of embarrassment. Thank you Dr. Vu Ho!"- H. / RealSelf / Jan 02, 2021
"Beyond Impressed with Dr. Vu Ho!!! - I was beyond impressed with Dr. Vu Ho and his entire staff!! From the minute I walked in the door, everyone was extremely kind and helpful. Dr. Ho carefully listened to my concerns, and not only suggested, but educated me as to which treatments would provide the very best results. I was looking for something non invasive and with very little down time, and he provided this option for me. My areas of concern were the fine lines and wrinkles on my face, as well as sagging skin on my neck. Dr. Ho recommend a combination of Morpheus8 skin tightening as well as PDO threads. My hopes and expectations were by far exceeded, as I couldn’t be happier with the smoothing, tightening and overall appearance of my skin. I am new to Texas, and as a healthcare worker with many years in plastic surgery, I was so impressed with how Dr. Ho is ahead of the curve on offering the latest and best technology. I wouldn’t go to anyone else after my experience at Beyond Beautiful!!!"- J. / RealSelf / Sep 27, 2021

Am I A candidate For Cellulite Reduction Treatment?
During your consultation, a member of our team will help determine if cellulite reduction with QWO, ZWave, VelaShape, or a BellaPlasma lift will help you achieve your aesthetic goals. It is important to keep in mind throughout this process, however, that cellulite is not a weight loss treatment and should not be treated as such. The ideal candidates for all forms of cellulite reduction are patients of all genders who:
- Have unwanted cellulite or body fat on their abdomen, upper arms, legs, and/or buttocks
- Have dieted and exercised without attaining the results they desire
- Want long-lasting results
- Are healthy
- Are at or near their goal weight
How Are Cellulite Reduction Treatments performed?
Depending on your unique needs, goals, and body type, our team will recommend which of our cellulite reduction techniques will best help you achieve the body of your dreams. We're always willing to answer any questions or concerns you may have with the various methods, as well as explain the differences between them. Below, you'll find a quick breakdown of the procedures we can perform to reduce the appearance of cellulite in the bodies of our patients.
QWO: Beyond Beautiful Texas is one of the few medical spas in North Texas now offering the revolutionary, new QWO treatment, a nonsurgical procedure clinically proven to reduce moderate to severe cellulite. Eliminating cellulite is difficult and may even seem impossible regardless of your diet or exercise regimen. With QWO, we can treat cellulite in the thighs and buttocks with little downtime using injections that can take as little as ten minutes. QWO is the first injectable on the market that effectively treats cellulite. It is currently FDA approved for use in the buttocks of women. It contains collagen-degrading enzymes that dissolve the fibrous band connecting skin to muscle. These bands are seen as the root cause of cellulite as they pull the skin down, creating an uneven surface. Patients will typically require up to three treatments at 21-day intervals for optimal results.
BellaPlasma Lift: Beyond Beautiful Texas is the only medical spa in the country offering the innovative, state-of-the-art BellaPlasma Booty procedure. Our exclusive, trademarked combination therapy called BellaPlasma is used to reduce cellulite and reshape and contour the hips and buttocks. By using a unique blend of safe and effective treatment modalities, including QWO, the first and only FDA-approved injectable for cellulite, we are able to diminish cellulite dimpling and enhance the shape of the buttocks. This is a minimally invasive procedure performed in the office and results are long-lasting.
ZWave: ZWave is a noninvasive treatment that is pain-free and does not require anesthesia. The simple process involves patients lying down comfortably in our procedure room while a member of our team uses the ZWave handpiece over each targeted area. The technology can be used alone to improve the structure of the skin and connective tissues, or combined with other minimally invasive procedures, such as scar reduction, skin tightening, and laser treatment. The high-energy, radial shockwaves emitted by ZWave work twofold by squeezing the tissue, breaking up the structure of the molecules, and collapsing the gas bubbles in the fat structures beneath the skin. Most patients comment that the treatment feels like a relaxing massage.
VelaShape: Much like ZWave, we will ask patients undergoing VelaShape treatment to lie in the prone position while an aesthetic technician passes the handheld VelaShape device over the treatment area. Most of our cellulite reduction patients say this feels like a relaxing massage and has a warm sensation but is not painful. While the device uses vacuum suction to bring the cellulite closer to the surface, it also targets the area with heat guided by bipolar radiofrequency energy. The length of time your appointment takes will be dependent on the amount of area(s) treated.
how Long Is recovery after Cellulite Reduction Treatment?
Following your cellulite reduction session, patients are free to return to their daily activities without any concern for the treatment area. Their skin may be slightly red and warm to the touch immediately following their treatment, but they should not experience any pain. During the consultation, a member of our team will recommend the number of treatments we believe will help attain the patient's aesthetic goals. After the optimal appearance has been attained, we usually recommend receiving occasional touch-up sessions to maintain the results.
