A majority of women will struggle with cellulite at some point in their life, sometimes beginning as early as the teen years. While cellulite is not painful nor evidence of a serious medical problem, it can lead to feelings of awkwardness and self-consciousness.
Qwo is an injectable cellulite treatment available to women in the Orange County area as a non-surgical alternative to minimize their cellulite. Qwo injections dissolve cellulite bands leading to a smooth skin appearance.
What is Qwo Cellulite Treatment?
Cellulite is a common condition of the skin, resulting in an appearance of lumpy, dimpled flesh. Some people say that cellulite resembles the texture of an orange peel, while others liken it to cottage cheese. Cellulite is most frequently found on the thighs, hips, abdominal area, and buttocks. And, while some men struggle with cellulite, it is much more common among women.
The development of cellulite pertains to the fibrous cords that connect the skin to muscle, with a layer of fat in between. When the fat cells push against the skin, the cords pull downward, which creates an uneven surface and the “dimpling” effect. It is worth noting that, while cellulite is sometimes thought to be a symptom of weight gain, it can actually impact anyone, even those who are very lean.
That brings us to Qwo, which is an injectable medication specifically designed to treat cellulite in the buttocks. Qwo is the first and currently the only FDA-approved medication that is authorized for the treatment of cellulite, making it a game-changer for the women who have wondered for years how they can get that cottage cheese effect to go away.
How Does Qwo Cellulite Treatment Work?
Qwo is made with two enzymes that function by breaking down collagen molecules. Qwo is injected into an area beneath a dimple, and the enzymes degrade the fibrous cord that is responsible for creating that dimpled effect. The result is that the depressed skin is released, and the surface of the skin is left smoother and revitalized.
Qwo treatments are popular because they are so quick. All it takes is a series of injections in the buttocks, which take less than an hour. Most patients require a total of three treatment sessions to get the full effect, but this can vary from one patient to the next. Also, note that there is very little downtime associated with Qwo. Most patients are ready to resume normal activities, including working out at the gym the day after their treatment. The most common side effects are bruising and mild swelling, which resolve on their own within a few days.
Who is the Best Candidate for Qwo Cellulite Treatment?
If you are a woman 18 years or older who struggles with cellulite in the buttock area, then you may be a qualified candidate for Qwo. We also recommend that patients be in good health overall, without any infections in the treatment area.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Qwo?
While Qwo cannot completely eliminate cellulite, it can significantly reduce the appearance of dimpling, resulting in skin that is visibly smoother. Most of our patients are extremely satisfied with the results, expressing that they feel much more confident and comfortable in their own skin. In particular, we hear from many women who say that their Qwo treatments leave them feeling more confident when wearing a swimsuit or during intimate moments with their partner.
Many patients begin seeing results about three weeks after treatment, though it may take up to 10 weeks to see the full results of Qwo.
