QWO® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that treats moderate to severe cellulite on women’s buttocks. This treatment is made up of enzymes called collagenase, which helps to correct the presence of cellulite on skin by redistributing the fat cells in the target area while also stimulating the production of collagen in the skin. It is this promotion of collagen production that helps to ensure quality and lasting effects from the treatment. While your QWO® results will only last about one year (though some results have been known to last longer, especially with help from maintaining a healthy lifestyle) collagen is responsible for the strength, health, and elasticity in our skin. So, with the new collagen produced because of the QWO® injectable, your body is healing itself and maintaining that healthy appearance. After your QWO® treatment, you will be proud of your smoother skin, with a much reduced presence of cellulite.
To receive optimal results, you will receive three QWO® treatments, spaced three weeks apart. Many patients are (justifiably) worried about pain during cosmetic treatments, but with QWO®, any pain and discomfort is kept to a minimum. If you choose, a skin-numbing ointment can be applied to the treatment area to ensure that you don’t feel any pain; however, many patients have their QWO® treatments performed without the ointment.
Your QWO® treatment will take less than 20 minutes to perform, which means that you can literally fix your cellulite on your lunch break! For your treatment, you will lie on your stomach while your plastic surgeon marks your treatment areas and then, using a syringe, injects the QWO® solution into the subcutaenous fat on your buttocks. Usually, six to 12 dimples per buttock are treated. Once the injections are finished, you’re done. And while you will have some bruising in the area, and you may feel some tenderness in the injection sites, you will not experience any downtime (and you won’t have to worry about any scarring)!
After your QWO® results settle in, you will find yourself feeling comfortable and confident in your body. You won’t be able to wait to show off your smooth and attractive backside!
