If you have cellulite on your buttocks that won’t respond to a clean diet, your exercise routine, or a healthy lifestyle, you may feel as though you are destined to live with that cellulite forever. However, we want to let you know that there is another way to address and eliminate that cellulite and it’s called QWO. We offer this anti-cellulite injectable right here at our MD Beauty Labs locations in West Palm Beach and Palm Beach, FL.

Who Is a Good Candidate for QWO?

QWO is a cosmetic injectable designed to eliminate cellulite that appears on the buttocks. There are many patients who make good candidates for this treatment. Patients with different skin types and tones of different ages can all successfully schedule this treatment and achieve some visible results.

Women With Moderate to Severe Cellulite

Most candidates who qualify for and schedule QWO treatments are women. This doesn’t mean that men are excluded from the treatment process, but studies show that 90% of women suffer from some form of cellulite compared to only 10% of men. For that reason, women with moderate to severe cellulite on their buttocks make good candidates for QWO.

Women Who Aren’t Allergic to the Injectable Ingredients

Most women who want to address their cellulite and eliminate it to increase their confidence and improve their appearance make good candidates for this treatment. It’s important that before beginning the treatment, we confirm that you are not allergic to the active ingredient in this injectable, an enzyme called collagenase. We can schedule your first treatment once we confirm that you are not allergic to collagenase.

Busy Women With Cellulite

If you want to eliminate cellulite on your buttocks, but you don’t have time to spend all day at cosmetic treatments or even the ability to schedule a surgical procedure with extensive downtime, you may be a good candidate for this treatment.

If you have a busy life, work a full-time or even part-time job, have responsibilities at home, but still want to improve the appearance of your cellulite, you can do it in quick treatments that only take approximately 10 minutes to complete.

What Is QWO?

QWO is a cosmetic injectable that is FDA-approved specifically to target and treat cellulite. Its active ingredient is called collagenase, and it uses enzymes to help address cellulite and, in doing so, creates a smoother, more even, and uniform skin texture. This treatment process is also thought to promote increased collagen production in the treatment area, which helps make the skin and the entire area appear firmer and tighter.

How Does It Work?

This injectable is so effective because it targets cellulite where it forms, at its source, which is in the deeper layers of the skin. There are many different factors why cellulite forms, but the most common reason is that cellulite actually results from fibrous cords beneath the skin’s surface that binds fat cells together into tight pockets so that they cannot spread out.

These fibrous cords pull tightly at the fat cells, which leads to the appearance of that bumpy skin texture that is definitive of cellulite.

What Happens During a Treatment?

This treatment process is quick and virtually painless. It is minimally invasive. QWO is housed in an injectable fitted with a fine needle through which it is administered into the areas defined by cellulite. During the injection process, the injector will prepare your skin and the treatment area by cleansing it and sanitizing it for the injection process.

Then, using the small needle attached to the injectable, she will make a series of injections into some specific areas of dimpled cellulite in the skin. Up to 12 injections total will be administered to the treatment area. This entire treatment process only takes 10 minutes to complete, and then you will be free to go about your day.

How Many Treatments Are Necessary?

The total number of treatments needed to achieve results will vary among patients, but typically, treatment plans include three injection appointments with three weeks between each. This schedule is recommended for patients who want to adequately target and eliminate cellulite on their buttocks.

During an initial consultation, you’ll meet with an injector experienced in this treatment process who will evaluate your desired treatment area and then provide you with more detailed information about what your specific treatment plan may look like.

How Soon Will I Notice Results?

Some patients begin to notice results within a few weeks of their treatment, but it typically takes up to 10 weeks to notice the most visible changes in your cellulite.

How Long Will Results Last?

Your results will last up to a year or longer based on how your body reacts to the treatment and the steps that you take to live the healthiest lifestyle possible to prevent the formation of new cellulite. In some cases, cellulite that is simply genetic cannot be prevented, which is why this treatment is such an effective way to treat and eliminate cellulite long-term.

For other patients, cellulite is avoidable, and once you undergo the necessary number of treatments, you can experience long-lasting results when you take the necessary steps to live the healthiest lifestyle possible. A healthy diet, consistent workout routine, and healthy lifestyle choices will all help contribute to warding off the formation of new cellulite long-term.

What Are the Benefits?

This treatment has become such a popular way to treat cellulite on the buttocks because it has so many benefits. Not only is it a quick treatment, but it’s virtually painless. You will experience long-lasting results that will help you feel more confident about your appearance both in everyday clothes and swimsuits.

It’s Non-Surgical

Up until QWO came onto the scene, if you wanted to address cellulite, you either had to take your chances with one of those DIY at-home anti-cellulite treatments and gadgets or schedule a surgical procedure like liposuction. The benefit of this treatment is that not only does it deliver results, but you don’t need to undergo a surgical procedure to achieve those results.

It’s completely non-surgical and doesn’t involve any incisions, liposuction, or a significant recovery period. Instead, you can drive yourself to and from your treatment and return home or go about your normal daily routine once your treatment is complete.

There’s No Downtime

Surgical fat removal procedures always require some amount of downtime and a recovery period, but this treatment does not. You can attend your appointment and then resume your normal daily activities. You won’t have any restrictions or be limited by downtime but instead can enjoy the fact that you’re one step closer to living cellulite-free.

It’s Safe

Another one of the many benefits of this treatment is that it is completely safe. It contains an active ingredient that the body is familiar with and will effectively break down those fibrous bands contributing to the appearance of your cellulite. You can trust that not only is the treatment process safe, but it is FDA-approved and clinically proven to deliver some incredible results.

It Will Increase Your Confidence

Living with cellulite can make you feel far less confident about your appearance than you should. Our goal is to help you become the best version of yourself. QWO treatments will help you feel more confident about your body. Our experts will help create the perfect treatment plan that will help you achieve visible, long-lasting results.

It Can Help You Get Event-Ready

If you’ve been living with cellulite for any length of time, this treatment can help you finally eliminate it and achieve long-lasting results. If you have an upcoming event like a beach vacation, wedding, or another special occasion at which you want to look and feel your best, this injectable can help eliminate your cellulite.

However, it’s important that you schedule accordingly since it can take up to 10 weeks to notice the full effects of the treatment process. When you come in for your consultation, let your injector know when your special event will take place so that she can design a treatment plan that will help you achieve results in time for your big day.

Experience Cellulite-Free Skin

Now is the time to invest in yourself. You don’t have to put off treating your cellulite any longer because the treatment process is so simple. In as little as 10 minute treatments, you can say goodbye to the cellulite that’s been affecting your confidence for years. Contact us today at one of our MD Beauty Labs locations in Palm Beach and West Palm Beach, FL, to learn more about this anti-cellulite injectable and schedule your initial consultation.
