As the summer rolls around, we may become hyper-conscious of our bodies and how we wish we looked. With the new QWO cellulite injection, you no longer have to sacrifice your comfort and confidence.
While cellulite is natural and normal to experience, we understand that the appearance of cellulite may cause men and women to feel uncomfortable or embarrassed.
What Causes Cellulite?
Most women will experience some form of cellulite in their lifetime. In fact, around 9 out of 10 women see cellulite somewhere on their bodies.
Despite sticking to tough workout regimes and healthy eating habits, cellulite is a part of a woman’s biology and can not be reduced through repeated trips to the gym.
In other words, cellulite is not caused by what you eat, and can not be treated with exercise. Cellulite is natural and often comes with aging.
Additionally, patients often confuse cellulite with fat, which it is not. Cellulite is predominantly caused by:
- The body creating fibrous bands of collagen that connect the skin to muscles below pulling the skin down
- This pulling down allows surrounding fat cells to push up against the skin (creating a raised area)
- This creates the raised and dimpled areas we see as cellulite
What is Qwo?
QWO is a new FDA-approved non-surgical, but injectable treatment designed to target and dissolve cellulite in the buttocks and upper thigh. The new formula is unlike any other cellulite product on the market, and is the first and only approved injectable to treat moderate to severe cellulite on the buttocks of adult women.
How Does QWO work?
- The injectable medication breaks apart and releases the fibrous bands which cause the dimpling
- This allows for the creation of a more even appearance to the skin again
The QWO injection is a medication mix that our master injector dermatologists place exactly under the cellulite dimple. This breaks apart the thick collagen/fibrous strands that are pulling down the skin, allowing the fat on the periphery to get closer to the skin surface.
Patients typically see results within several weeks. So far, we know this can last up to five years after the original treatment. The QWO treatment takes around ten to twenty minutes to complete and does not require any patient downtime. Many patients may require two additional return trips three weeks apart for best results. After a consultation, our master injector board-certified dermatologists will prescribe the best treatment plan for you.
