Cellulite is one of the most difficult-to-treat skin imperfections because, until recently, studies have been inclusive regarding what causes cellulite. At RefineU MedSpa in Oklahoma City, OK, we want to let you know the good news. You can finally put away your DIY anti-cellulite devices and scrubs because now there is a solution called QWO Cellulite Treatment that finally works and delivers real, visible results.
What Is QWO Cellulite Treatment?
QWO Cellulite Treatments is the first-ever FDA-approved cosmetic injectable that improves the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks and thighs. Ninety percent of women and ten percent of men suffer from cellulite, a visible skin dimpling that causes textural irregularities on the skin’s surface in various parts of the body.
The buttocks and thighs are two of the most common body areas affected by cellulite. If you suffer from cellulite, you’re aware of how difficult it is to treat with topical products, DIY scrubs, or those home shopping network devices. This injectable now provides a safe and effective way to improve moderate to severe cellulite and restore a uniform skin texture. You’ll feel better in your clothes and feel more confident in swimsuits once you achieve your results.
How Does It Work?
To understand how QWO works, you first need to understand the root cause of cellulite. While many people blame poor diet, lack of exercise, genetics, and gender on cellulite, these factors may contribute to its formation, but they’re not the underlying cause.
Cellulite does form because you aren’t working hard enough or aren’t dieting. Cellulite isn’t just excess fat. It results when your skin loses elasticity and becomes thinner. At the same time, the fibrous bands in the deeper layers of the skin pull tighter creating tension and forcing the fat cells to push up against the skin’s surface. As fat cells enlarge, cellulite worsens and becomes even more visible.
The QWO Active Ingredient: Collagenases
QWO injections contain an active ingredient called collagenase, an enzyme that works in three different ways. First, it helps loosen those tight fibrous bands in the deeper layers of the skin. In doing so, it allows those fat cells to redistribute and increases collagen production, which helps lift and tighten the skin. Collagenase is a natural enzyme that finally targets and improves the appearance of cellulite so that you can achieve real, visible results.
What Happens During the Treatment Process?
Once we confirm that QWO is a good choice for you, we can schedule your treatment. One of our technicians will cleanse the treatment area and then inject QWO with a very thin, small needle into some strategic areas of the buttocks or thighs. Depending on your goals and treatment plan, your injector may administer up to 12 injections during one treatment session.
Your injector will discuss your desired treatment area and can treat up to two different treatment areas during each session to create the most comprehensive results. As soon as your treatment is over, you’ll be able to resume your normal daily activities. The treatment process is quick and relatively painful and only takes about 10 minutes.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Women suffer from different degrees of cellulite on both the buttocks and thighs, so for that reason, treatment plans will vary. Some women want to treat both areas; others only want to treat one. One of our injectors will create a personalized treatment plan specifically designed for your needs. A typical treatment plan includes three injection sessions with 21 days between each.
When Will I See Results?
Most patients who begin the treatment process see results within ten weeks of their initial round of injections. Results vary, and your injector can give you a better idea of what type of results you can expect at your initial consultation. After undergoing the recommended number of treatments, expect to see tighter, smoother skin and a visible reduction in your cellulite.
Are the Results Permanent?
QWO cellulite treatment results are long-lasting. Patients can experience results for one year or longer based on how their bodies react to the treatment. You can enhance your results by eating a healthy diet and exercising consistently.
You can schedule follow-up treatments to continue to address your cellulite long-term. Some patients may experience permanent results, but we can provide you with a better idea of what kind of results you can expect and how long you can expect them at your initial consultation.
Is It Safe?
This treatment is a safe way to visibly reduce cellulite. It’s been studied and proven, and is FDA-approved to do what no other injectable can. You can rest assured that when you schedule your treatment, you’re scheduling one that’s completely safe and effective.
Am I a Candidate?
If you suffer from moderate to severe cellulite in your buttocks and are not allergic to any of the ingredients in QWO, you may be the perfect candidate for this treatment. Women who are pregnant or nursing are ineligible for treatment until their doctors clear them.
Additionally, those with a bleeding problem may be excluded from treatment for safety reasons. If our injector confirms that you are a good candidate for QWO, but you develop an infection in your planned treatment area, be sure to contact our office and let us know so that we can reschedule your treatment to ensure that you achieve the best results.
Scheduling a Consultation
If you aren’t sure whether you are a good candidate for this treatment, the first step in the process is an initial consultation. One of our expert injectors can evaluate your desired treatment area and make treatment recommendations. She will ask you questions about your health history and your desired outcome so that we can confirm whether QWO is right for you and then move forward with the treatment process.
