Does cellulite hold you back from getting excited about swimsuit season? If so, this year is the year to change that! QWO is an injectable cellulite reduction treatment that can be used to improve the appearance of cellulite in the buttocks and thighs. Since it’s non-surgical, QWO is a leading choice among women who want a smoother, tighter-looking backside.
Before we dive into the benefits of QWO, let’s clear up what cellulite is. Cellulite is the dimpled skin that appears around fat pockets. It’s associated with changes in dermal thickness and changes to the fat cells and connective tissue beneath the skin. One of the leading causes of cellulite is fibrous septa, or collagen bands, connecting the skin to the muscle between the fat pockets. This pulls down the skin, making the fat show up on the skin in dimples.
QWO is the first FDA-approved injectable for adult women with moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks. It contains the active ingredient Collagenase Clostridium Histolyticum (CCH). When injected into the cellulite dimples, the CCH in QWO dissolves the septa connecting the skin to the muscle. As the skin disconnects from the muscle, it will return to its original position, diminishing the appearance of dimples.
Patients can see an improvement in the appearance of cellulite in just 10 weeks, with 3 treatments 21 days apart. The injections take just 15 minutes to administer, and patients can resume their daily activities immediately after the procedure.
As the only injectable out there today that can treat cellulite in the buttocks and back of thighs, QWO is an unparalleled treatment. If you’re interested in QWO injections to improve your bikini body, contact St. Louis Skin Solutions to learn more.
