QWO Cellulite Treatment
What is Qwo?
The first and only FDA-approved injectable for cellulite! It is a prescription medicine used to treat moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. Visible results may be achieve in 10 weeks. Women received 3 treatments, 21 days apart and injections take as little as 10 minutes.
Cellulite Isn’t Your Fault
Cellulite is just part of our biology. Most women will have cellulite in their lifetime – about 9 out of 10 women, in fact. Unfortunately, no matter how much you work out, eat healthy, or wish it away — cellulite won’t budge unless you get to the source.
You should always maintain your healthy habits, but if you really want to reduce cellulite, you need to understand what’s behind it.
Here’s What Contributes to Cellulite
There are 3 things that together cause those signature dimples. Let’s take a look under the surface of the skin.
- Skin – Over time, skin things
- Fat – Fat cells enlarge and push against the skin
- Fibrous Bands – The fibrous bands under the skin thicken and cause tension
QWO Was Put To The Test
Some women and their aesthetic specialists both agreed they noticed less dimpling after treatment with QWO. Results were assessed 28 days after the 3rd treatment.
QWO has been studied in more patients than any other cellulite treatment, with over 1,800 women participating.
A Cutting Edge Treatment
After you and your aesthetic specialist discuss your treatment and what to expect, they’ll inject QWO into your dimples. QWO injections take 10 minutes or less. In clinical trials, women required no post-treatment downtime.
QWO Enzymes at Work
While it is not fully understood how QWO works in moderate to severe cellulite, the enzymes-called collagenases – are believed to target a structural cause under the skin.
It is thought that QWO works in 3 ways: releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen
How Does QWO Work on Cellulite?
A common misconception about QWO injections is that they eliminate cellulite when, in reality, what happens is they break up the collagen fiber to reduce the appearance of cellulite on the body. By doing this, patients are able to enjoy a smoother, more even-toned complexion and texture to their skin.
What Areas of the Body Can QWO Treat?
QWO injectables are approved and most beneficial when applied to the buttocks and thighs. While QWO may be injected into the inner thighs, the results may appear less noticeable.
Who Is a Candidate for QWO Cellulite Treatment?
Idea candidates for QWO cellulite treatment are women who are concerned with how cellulite appears on their body and are interested in achieving a smoother, more radiant look to their skin. Being in good overall health and a non-smoker is recommended for this procedure.
If you are someone who is highly sensitive or allergic to the ingredients in most injectables, this procedure may not be recommended for you. QWO injectables are not recommended for women who are currently pregnant or breastfeeding.
Are There Any Side Effects with QWO Treatment?
Just like any injectable treatment, QWO does come with a few side effects that patients should be aware of. These can include bruising, swelling, redness, discoloration, hardness, or tenderness in the treated areas. However, as your injectable settles into your skin, these side effects should disappear within seven days.
How Long Does QWO Treatment Last?
QWO treatments allow patients to enjoy their newly rejuvenated, smooth skin for up to one year. While patients can continue seeing improvements in their treated skin areas past the one-year mark, the team at Creative Image Laser Solutions is always happy to welcome back returning patients who want to maintain their results for a touch-up treatment.
