One of the most often asked questions by patients is, “What can I do to get rid of cellulite?”  Until now, there was very little that medical science could offer to combat the dreaded dimples.  Qwo, is a new FDA-approved injectable treatment for cellulite. 

Nine in 10 women will develop cellulite at some point in their lives. The dimpling we see on our skin from cellulite is created by “fibrous septae.” This is the structure in the dermal layer of our skin. This structure acts like a net between the skin and the fat layers.  When this structure gets damaged, or the fat grows and the “net” stretches, the holes in the structure stretch, and fat pops through. The pulling and tension being created cause the outer layer of skin to be drawn down to the deeper tissue, creating the dimple effect.  These dimples are what we have come to know as cellulite.  Women of all sizes and weights have cellulite.  No amount of dieting or exercise will correct it.

QWO is a new non-surgical, cellulite treatment that is designed specifically to target cellulite dimples.  The enzymes that makeup QWO help to smooth the fat cells through redistribution within the dermal layer and relaxes the fibrous bands that pull on the skin.  It stimulates the growth of new collagen in the skin and helps to ease the tension that causes the dimpling. The entire treatment process is fast, painless, and there is no restrictions on activities following treatment.  

Patients will begin to notice the results in as few as 10 weeks as the body begins to produce more collagen.  As the treatment areas start to smooth out and relax, patients will notice visible reductions in the amount of dimpling.

QWO is a simple injection, and can take as few as 10 minutes, with no post-treatment downtime.  Qwo is injected in three treatments, scheduled about three weeks apart. 

First, the treatment areas will be marked and lined out, followed by the injection process. Anesthesia is not necessary, as the process is almost painless.  While you can see results following a single treatment, the best outcome will be seen after all three treatments have been completed in their entirety.  Once the treatment has been completed, you can leave and go about your day as you normally would with no one having any idea that you’ve had anything done.  However, 85% of patients will develop post-treatment bruising.  While the bruising is almost painless, it is very noticeable when not covered by clothing.  Bruising with the second and third treatments is usually less than with the initial treatment. 

For the more than 90% of women with cellulite, Qwo is a real game-changer.  To see if Qwo is right for you, schedule a free consultation with one of our skincare experts at The Skin Care Center at Gulf Coast Plastic Surgery.
