Qwo Cellulite Treatment – Say Goodbye to Cellulite Without Surgery

 In Aesthetics, Blog, Body Contouring, Cellulite Treatments

Cellulite is a common complaint among women. Although men can fall victim to the appearance of unsightly cellulite, it is more prevalent in women. Many of the products and treatments made available to reduce the appearance of cellulite have produced minimal results. Some women even resorted to liposuction surgery. While liposuction is a procedure to remove fat, the reduction of fat can also reduce the appearance of cellulite. However, there is a better option. Now there is Qwo, a non-surgical cellulite treatment. Before we tell you more about Qwo, let’s talk a little bit more about cellulite.

What Causes the Appearance of Cellulite?

According to an evidence-based review published on PubMed Central, 80 to 90 percent of women will experience the development of cellulite at some point after puberty. This is attributed to different distributions of fat, muscle, and connective tissue in the female body. The accumulation of fat cells pushing against the skin while the fibrous bands of connective tissue that attach the skin to the muscle pull in the opposite direction creates the unattractive orange peel effect. 

While its believed cellulite is more common in older individuals or those with excess body fat, young, fit individuals also have cellulite. So, weight and body fat aren’t the only contributing factors when it comes to cellulite. Hormones and age can be factors as well.

Estrogen in women decreases with age which reduces circulation and collagen production. The drop in estrogen also causes fat cells to enlarge, and reduced collagen causes the skin to lose elasticity. All of this, plus any hereditary factors such as metabolic rate, fat distribution, ethnicity, and circulatory levels, can contribute to the appearance of cellulite.

How Can Qwo Help Reduce Cellulite?

One of the most common places for women to get cellulite is in the buttocks. While this can put a damper on bikini season, there is good news. Qwo cellulite treatment is the first and only injectable to be FDA approved for treating moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks.

Why Qwo is effective in reducing cellulite is not fully understood. However, it is believed the enzymes in Qwo, called collagenases, trigger three reactions in the body. They release the fibrous bands of connective tissue, redistribute fat cells, and increase collagen production. Now that you understand what causes the appearance of cellulite, you can see how these reactions to Qwo would aid in its reduction. 

What to Expect During a Qwo Cellulite Treatment

With Qwo, there is no need to consider surgery as Qwo is injected into dimpled areas on the buttocks using a small needle. The injections take about 10 minutes, and it typically takes three treatments, each given 21 days apart. Two treatment areas can be treated in each session. There is virtually no downtime after receiving a Qwo cellulite treatment. You may experience some injection site bruising, itching, swelling, and redness in the treatment area. These dissipate fairly quickly, and visible results are evident at about ten weeks.
