If you’re bothered by cellulite, you’re not alone. Cellulite is extremely common, with 90% of women experiencing it at some point in their lives. The good news is that effective cellulite reduction treatments are available. QWO is a non-surgical injection treatment specifically designed to reduce cellulite. We’d be happy to discuss this treatment with you during a consultation at MD Beauty Labs in Palm Beach or West Palm Beach, FL.
What Is QWO?
QWO is the first-ever FDA-approved injectable treatment for cellulite. No surgery is required, and results are noticeable within weeks of treatment. Patients receive 3 rounds of injections, spaced 3 weeks apart. Using a small needle, up to 12 injections are applied directly to targeted areas of dimples in the buttocks. The injections are completed within 10 minutes.
How It Works
Cellulite is caused by an interplay between fat cells beneath our skin and the fibrous cords that connect our skin to our muscles. As these cords pull down, the fat cells move toward the skin surface, in between the cords. This results in the dimpling, bumpy appearance of the skin known as cellulite. Fitness and healthy eating, though great for overall health, unfortunately, have little to no effect when it comes to reducing cellulite. Thankfully, cellulite treatment is available to give you that extra boost in body confidence.
QWO contains enzymes (called collagenases) that are believed to loosen the fibrous cords so that the fat cells are not bound so tightly and can distribute more evenly under the skin. This results in a smoother, more even skin appearance and texture. The enzymes may also stimulate the growth of new collagen, a protein that is essential to keeping our skin smooth and supple.
While a gradual improvement is likely to be noticeable over the course of treatment, significant results may be achieved in as little as 10 weeks. Results may last up to a year or longer.
Who Is It Right For?
QWO is designed for adult women who want to treat moderate to severe cellulite in their buttocks. Nearly all women are candidates, except those who are allergic to the enzyme collagenase or other injection ingredients.
Clinical trials of this treatment included women of all ages, skin types, skin colors, and ethnicities, with success demonstrated in all categories. It works best on women who don’t also have skin laxity (sagging, loose skin). It may be necessary to first treat skin laxity before treating cellulite.
This treatment is ideal for busy women who want treatments to be quick and recovery-free. Appointments generally take under 30 minutes, and no anesthesia is required. Because the treatment is non-invasive, patients can resume normal activity immediately.
