You're Not Alone: Say Goodbye to Cellulite with QWO
Let's face it: cellulite is something that most women have dealt with at some point in their lives. For many women, it is a constant battle. You may have tried everything — from fad diets to crazy exercise routines, but those dimples and lumps on your buttocks just won't budge.
The good news is, there is a new treatment that can help you say goodbye to cellulite for good. QWO is a revolutionary injectable that targets the root cause of cellulite. It is FDA approved and clinically proven to be safe and effective. If you're looking for a new solution to your cellulite woes, QWO injections may just be what you need.
What is cellulite?
Cellulite is a very common skin concern that appears as lumps or dimples on the buttocks. Severe buttocks cellulitis can be very bumpy and may resemble an orange peel texture. While the formation of cellulite does not cause any harmful health consequences, the volume and skin laxity may affect your self-confidence especially when you want to flaunt your skin at the beach during the summer months.
The exact cause of cellulite is not known but skin experts explain that cellulite involves fibrous bands or cords that pull the skin down to the underlying muscle, with the fat being squeezed in between causing cellulite formation. When body fat accumulates, it tends to pile up and push against the overlying skin. As the fat cells protrude against the skin, the strong cords pull the skin down, resulting in a dimpled appearance of the skin. Some cellulite may even appear as small craters on the buttocks. This causes a dimpled or lumpy appearance on the skin. There are many treatments available to help temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite like herbal body wraps, many anti-cellulite creams, and other cosmetic injectable treatments, but QWO is the most effective and FDA-approved treatment available.
Risk factors that can cause cellulite
Several factors can influence the formation of cellulite. Check out the list below for the known risk factors that can contribute to the appearance of cellulite.
- Being Female
Cellulite can form in both males and females, but it is more commonly found in women. The majority of women develop cellulite after reaching puberty. In women, the distribution of fat becomes more concentrated in the buttocks, thighs, and hips. These areas are the typical sites of cellulite formation. In contrast, men tend to accumulate more fat in the abdominal area.
- Advanced Age
As we get older, our skin loses its natural integrity and elasticity. Weakening of the skin structure promotes the irregular formation of cords that pull down the skin, resulting in cellulite.
- Excess Weight Gain
Experts believe that body weight affects cellulite patterns forming in women who are overweight because the increase of fat cells causes them to push against the surrounding skin. This can cause the formation of cords and fibrous bands that pull down the skin, resulting in a cellulite appearance. Excess body weight can also increase inflammatory responses in the body that trigger the formation of cellulite.
If you're a smoker, there's no doubt that smoking has negative effects on your health. Studies have shown that smoking can damage the collagen and elastin in the skin, making it lose its natural structure and integrity. This makes the skin more prone to the formation of cellulite.
Some experts propose that genetics might be the biggest factor in cellulite formation since it has been observed that cellulite tends to run in families. If your parents, siblings, or cousins have cellulite, it is highly likely that you have it too.
- Diet and Lifestyle
There is no single diet or exercise routine that will completely prevent cellulite from forming. However, maintaining a healthy, balanced diet and staying active can help to reduce the severity of cellulite. Some foods that have been shown to be particularly effective in reducing cellulite include lean proteins like fish and chicken, healthy fats like avocados, nuts, and seeds, and fruits and vegetables. Working out regularly can also help to improve blood circulation, which may aid in the prevention and formation of cellulite.
What is QWO Cellulite Treatment?
QWO is a simple, minimally invasive procedure that has been proven to treat moderate to severe cellulite. These cellulite treatments are the first and only FDA-approved injectables for the treatment of moderate to severe buttocks cellulite typically found in adult women. With its potent formulation of collagen-degrading enzymes and organic agents, QWO targets and breaks down the strong fibers that cause cellulite. The result is smoother, healthy-looking, cellulite-free skin.
How does it work?
The QWO injectable contains two powerful enzymes, known as collagenases, that target and dismantle collagen connective tissue molecules beneath the skin. Once QWO is injected beneath the targeted cellulite, its potent formulation rapidly stimulates the chemical breakdown of the collagen-rich fibers that pull down the skin in cellulite. By destroying these cords, QWO mechanically causes the release of the skin from being pulled down.
The enzymes of QWO also stimulate natural skin repair and remodeling by activating the production of new collagen molecules. The body naturally absorbs the enzymes causing new collagen which will then restore the integrity and elasticity of the skin. The ultimate result of the QWO cellulite treatment is healthy-looking, smooth skin that you can flaunt at any time of the year.
What are the target areas?
Currently, QWO has been approved by the FDA to treat cellulite on the buttocks. Other possible treatment areas are the thighs, upper arms, breasts, and lower abdomen. However, the injection of QWO into these parts of the body is still under study and is not yet FDA-approved injectable treatment sites to permanently reduce cellulite.
How is the QWO treatment performed?
During your appointment, your QWO-certified provider will treat dimples, aka cellulite by marking the areas and apply a numbing cream to minimize discomfort. The QWO treatment is done through a series of small injections. While treating cellulite, you may experience some minor swelling and redness in the treated areas. However, these side effects are temporary and will typically dissipate within 24 hours. The results of QWO injections can be seen 1-3 months after treatment.
When can I see the results?
Most patients see an improvement in their cellulite within 3-4 sessions. You will notice visible improvement 10 weeks after your initial treatment. In most cases, 2 to 3 treatment cycles of QWO are performed for the best results. The treatments are typically done 21 days apart.
Is QWO safe?
QWO has been tested and proven safe in hundreds of patients who underwent thousands of QWO treatments. Patients report mild swelling and injection site bruising with moderate soreness, just like in other cosmetic injectable treatment sessions.
Patients undergoing treatment have also reported side effects including discomfort, warmth, swelling, itching, increase blood flow, and discoloration around the injection site. These side effects will be adequately explained by your QWO-certified provider during your Qwo injections treatment session.
How long will QWO last?
Initial clinical data show that QWO injections can last for a few years after the first treatment session. Skin experts continue to monitor and gather data to determine exactly how long QWO could provide a substantial improvement of cellulite.
Is there downtime or a recovery period required?
The QWO cellulite treatment is a short, minimally invasive procedure that doesn't require any time off from your regular activities. You may return to your normal routine the day after your treatment session.
In some cases, mild bruising and moderate soreness are alleviated after 1 to 2 weeks from the first injectable treatment session. Other patients may have mild to moderate redness around the injection site. The redness can be relieved by taking pain medications such as Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen. These side effects are common in treatments that involve cosmetic injectables.
Is QWO right for me?
If you are unhappy with the appearance of skin dimpling due to cellulite on your buttocks, QWO injectables may be a good option for you. You are not a suitable candidate for QWO if you have an active skin infection in the treatment area or if you have a known allergy to any collagenase components or other ingredients of QWO.
To find out if you are a candidate, it is best to schedule a consultation with a QWO-certified provider. Your QWO-certified provider will examine your skin, evaluate the appearance and extent of your cellulite, and review your health history to determine if QWO is right for you.
You're not the only one unhappy with your cellulite; almost all adult women have it. It may be a small problem, but it can lex substantially to a lack of confidence.
The good news is that cellulite injectable treatments are now available to help reduce the appearance of cellulite, improve your skin texture, get back smooth skin plus, permanently eliminate cellulite for good, and give you back the confidence you deserve.
QWO is the new, clinically proven, minimally invasive treatment that can help you get rid of your cellulite. Say hello to smooth, firm, healthy-looking skin in just 3 to 4 sessions!
