One of the most common cosmetic concerns people have is cellulite, resulting from fat buildup beneath the skin. A popular misconception is that cellulite only occurs if you are overweight or aging, but this simply isn’t the case. Even if you’re healthy and young, you can still have cellulite, most commonly on the buttocks or in the upper outer thigh.
Cellulite pushes the skin’s connective tissue out of shape. It is far more common in women because of the natural structure of their skin, which comprises vertical fibrous bands that allow for easier dimpling when tight. Is there anything cosmetic specialists can do about this?
There is. We now offer a non-surgical cellulite treatment called QWO at our med spa in Commack, NY. Learn more about QWO and how it can help resolve your cellulite below.
What Is QWO?
QWO is an FDA-approved non-surgical treatment for moderate to severe cellulite. QWO contains collagenases, which is an enzyme that targets cellulite at the root. This enzyme releases the fibrous bands that lead to the dimpling found most often in cellulite.
QWO is currently the only injectable available that smoothes the appearance of cellulite for a long period of time.
How Is QWO Treatment Performed?
QWO injections are very similar to dermal filler injections. During your treatment, your provider will inject the formula where cellulite is moderate to severe (typically the back of the thighs and the buttocks).
Each treatment takes about 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the patient’s unique needs. The treatment is virtually painless and requires no downtime or recovery period. Patients report feeling completely normal afterward.
To see dramatic results, patients need to receive three QWO treatments about three to four weeks apart. This session schedule ensures that problem areas with the most severe cellulite receive enough formula to smooth out over time.
Once your QWO sessions are complete, you will see a smoother, more even appearance in your skin within three weeks. Many patients enjoy results for a year or more.
Since every patient’s body is different, each patient will respond differently to QWO treatment. Some patients see significant results after just one treatment, while others do not see results until a total of three treatments are complete. Talk to your cosmetic provider to determine how many treatments you’ll need.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for QWO Treatment?
In general, QWO is perfect for anyone struggling with moderate to severe cellulite. Cellulite can affect anyone at any age, but it is found most often in adult women. If you are struggling with cellulite, schedule a consultation with a cosmetic expert to discuss whether this non-surgical treatment is suitable for you.
