Are you bothered by stubborn cellulite on your buttocks? If so, you are not alone. Many women deal with dimples on this part of their body. Thankfully, QWO is a new FDA-approved cellulite treatment that promises to smooth dimpling on the buttocks in adult women. This treatment allows cosmetic surgeons to treat cellulite with fewer complications. If you are interested in learning more about this treatment, read on for everything you need to know about QWO.
What are Cellulite Injections?
While there are other cellulite treatments such as laser treatment, QWO is the first injectable to show visible results. QWO works by using enzymes known as collagenases that target the structural causes under the skin where cellulite begins. It will release fibrous bands, redistribute fat cells, and stimulate new collagen production to improve the look of cellulite.
What to Expect During Treatment
During treatment, a topical anesthetic is not required, as treatment is usually tolerable without. QWO is administered through injections using a small needle directly into the cellulite dimples on the buttocks. One session typically takes just 10-20 minutes to complete.
There is no downtime required after treatment, so patients can feel free to resume their normal activities as soon as they wish.
Each treatment can include up to two treatment areas. The number of injections given will depend on the amount of cellulite and your individual goals. Most people can see visible results after 10 weeks.
The Difference between QWO and Other Cellulite Treatments
Other existing cellulite treatments work by breaking down fibrous bands either mechanically or using thermal energy to smooth the skin. The main difference with QWO is that it works by chemically loosening the bands. Patients who take QWO treatments will require less downtime since it is less invasive.
Are there any Risks Associated with QWO Injections?
As with all injectable treatments, there are some possible side effects associated with QWO injections. These may include temporary bruising after treatment, pain in the injection site, swelling, itching, redness, and a warm sensation.
