Best Candidates for QWO Cellulite Reduction
QWO is FDA-approved for treatment of cellulite in the buttocks. Candidates should be in good health with realistic expectations. The treatment can dramatically improve the smoothness and texture of skin in the treated area, but perfection is not the goal. Women with cellulite on their butts can see significant improvement through a series of QWO treatments.
In many cases, women would like to improve their body contour while treating cellulite. CoolSculpting® can be an excellent option to destroy unwanted fat cells without surgery, and is commonly applied to the thighs, love handles and buttocks. QWO may also be used in conjunction with one of our other cellulite treatments – Cellfina® or Profound® RF.
What to Expect
QWO treatments are nearly effortless and can be completed in about 10 minutes. Before treatment, we’ll evaluate your areas and degree of cellulite and if QWO is an appropriate option, the injections will be administered directly into targeted dimples in the buttocks using a small needle.
QWO injections work by releasing fibrous bands that cause the appearance of cellulite, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen. The injection is comprised of enzymes called collagenases that are thought to cause remodeling of the deeper tissue layers.
Recovery & Results
There is no downtime after a QWO treatment. Expect some degree of bruising or discoloration where the injections were administered. Redness, hardness or swelling of the treated area and lingering discomfort for a day or two are also common. Other complications are possible and we’ll discuss these with you so you know what to watch for.
QWO is designed to improve cellulite over time with a series of injections. Typically a total of 3 treatment visits over the course of 2 months will deliver the best results. About a month after your final treatment, your peak results will be visible.
