Can Botox injections help get rid of cellulite on thighs and buttocks?

Q:

I am 5'6" and weigh 125 pounds.  I eat pretty healthy, work out 4-5 times a week and consider myself in shape, but still have cellulite on my thighs and buttocks.  Since I really don't think I need liposuction, I was wondering what other treatments are out there for this problem.  Could Botox help with cellulite?

A:

Botox acts to relax muscles and soften wrinkles. It is most commonly used for aesthetic purposes to soften the frown lines between the eyebrows.

Cellulite is not related to muscle activity, so Botox would not be a good treatment for this problem. There are several minimally invasive options you can consider for cellulite, but know this is a difficult problem. Start with a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who can review your options with you.
