QWO Cellulite Treatment

Make Your Bottom Your Top Priority

Cellulite is a frustrating yet harmless condition that many women struggle with. Many individuals blame themselves for the dimpled skin on their buttocks and thighs. This guilt can be life altering, and three out of five women say they feel guilty for their cellulite. You aren’t, and doctors wish more women understood that cellulite is not their fault. You no longer need to be self-conscious about cellulite, especially now that there is an effective treatment for it. The QWO cellulite treatment is the first and only FDA approved injectable that successfully treats the appearance of moderate to severe cellulite. Instead of resigning yourself to a lifetime of hiding cellulite, make an appointment with Medical Cosmetics to see if it’s the right treatment for you.

QWO Cellulite Treatment Before & After

What is Cellulite?

Cellulite is a complex condition influenced by multiple factors. It leads to fat being stored in the dermis in such a way that the skin appears dimpled. Commonly referred to as ‘cottage cheese’ or ‘orange peel’ buttocks, cellulite gives skin an uneven contour that many women find undesirable. The dimpling of the skin is caused by fibrous septae, a thickening of the fibers that pull the skin down. The problem lies in the distribution of these fibers. They are not distributed evenly, which creates the appearance of dimpled skin. 85 to 90% of women have or will have cellulite, regardless of their fitness or weight. Men rarely experience cellulite because the septae forms differently in their skin.

What Are QWO Cellulite Injections & How Can They Help?

Cellulite isn’t your fault, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to be done about it. Instead of hiding your rear end and legs, treat the problem with the latest and non-invasive cellulite treatment, QWO. In as little as three weeks patients see a smoother appearance to their skin. The cellulite treatment consists of a few injections that target two forms of collagen, types one and three. These are two types of collagen you don’t want. QWO breaks them down, resulting in a sleeker and smoother skin surface. Technically speaking, QWO is made from enzymes that digest collagen, and is also known as a collagenase clostridium hitstolyticum treatment.

Best Candidates for the QWO Cellulite Treatment

Adult women with moderate to severe cellulite on the buttocks are the best candidates for this treatment. Any woman with cellulite on the buttocks is a good candidate, no matter her weight or if she’s currently in the process of losing weight. The QWO cellulite treatment is not suitable for men, or on other parts of the body, including the thighs.

How Does a QWO Injection For Cellulite Work?

QWO cellulite injections are quick and easy to perform, taking only ten to fifteen minutes. The enzymes in the injections break the fibrous bands that create the dimpled effect. This results in a smoother and sleeker appearance. Side effects include bruising after the treatment, which is completely normal. You might also have tenderness in the areas of the injections, which can be managed with OTC medications. Other side effects include discoloration, swelling, hardness, and some itching. There are up to three cycles of injections that are spaced three to four weeks apart. Results are not instant. Some women notice results in as little as three weeks, but most take longer to notice improvements. Side effects also decrease after each session.

Different Way To Treat Cellulite

Will Losing Weight Get Rid Of Cellulite?

Shedding weight does improve the appearance of cellulite but does not eliminate it. This is because losing weight does not address the fibrous bands that pull the skin down. In fact, sometimes weight loss makes cellulite appear worse because of skin slackening. Having the QWO cellulite treatment treats the fibrous bands, which weight loss alone does not.
