What Is Cellulite, and Where Does It Come From?
Cellulite is a common condition that leaves your skin with a lumpy, dimpled appearance. Cellulite usually occurs on your thighs, hips, and buttocks. It affects 90% of women around the world and is caused by a combination of factors.
One of the primary causes of cellulite is the structure of the skin and fat in the affected areas. In these areas, the fat cells are arranged in chambers separated by connective tissue bands called septae. As the size of the fat cells increases, the septae can pull down on the skin, causing a dimpling effect.
There are other factors that contribute to the development of cellulite:
- Hormones, such as estrogen, insulin, and prolactin, contribute to the development of cellulite.
- Genetics also plays a role, as some women are more prone to developing cellulite than others.
- Additionally, a diet high in sugar and fat can increase your chances of developing cellulite. The same can be said for lack of exercise.
- Finally, dehydration can cause the skin to become thin and weak, making it more prone to cellulite. That is why it is essential to lead a healthy lifestyle.
While it can be difficult to get rid of cellulite completely, there are effective ways to reduce its severity. We offer QWO cellulite therapy to reduce the appearance of cellulite in men and women.
What Are QWO Cellulite Treatments?
QWO is an FDA-approved injectable treatment for cellulite. It is a non-surgical treatment that uses enzymes to break down the fibrous bands that pull the skin down and cause the dimpling effect of cellulite.
QWO is made up of three different enzymes called collagenases, which work together to break down the collagen in the septae that causes the dimpling effect. By breaking down the collagen, the septae are released, allowing the skin to smooth out and reduce the appearance of cellulite.
The Benefits of QWO cellulite treatments
The benefits of QWO cellulite treatments are numerous. QWO offers several advantages that make it an appealing choice:
QWO is a non-surgical treatment for cellulite, which means there are no incisions or anesthesia required. This reduces the risk of complications and downtime associated with surgery.
Because QWO is a non-surgical treatment, there is minimal downtime associated with the treatment. Patients can typically return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
While QWO anti-cellulite treatments are not a permanent solution, the results can last up to two years. Touch-up treatments can help to maintain the results.
Quick Treatment Sessions
Each QWO session takes about 10 minutes, making it ideal for those who want to squeeze a session into their busy schedule.
What Are QWO Cellulite Treatments Like?
The treatment is administered by a healthcare professional using a series of injections into the targeted areas of cellulite. The number of treatments required depends on the severity of the cellulite and your body’s response to the treatment, but typically involves three treatments spaced three weeks apart.
Who Is a Good Candidate for QWO Cellulite Treatments?
QWO cellulite removal treatments are recommended for individuals with moderate to severe cellulite. Both men and women of all skin types can benefit from this treatment. However, it is important to note that QWO is not a skin-tightening treatment. It is essential to understand that sagging skin is not the same as cellulite, and QWO does not address sagging skin. We offer a range of treatments for patients who want to tighten their skin.
Preparing for Your QWO Treatment
Your QWO journey begins with an initial consultation with us. During this session, we will review your medical history and provide a detailed explanation of the QWO treatment and how it works.
It is important to inform us of any chronic medication, vitamins, or supplements you take. You will be asked to stop taking blood-thinning medication, such as ibuprofen and aspirin, two weeks before your treatment to ensure the best results.
We recommend you refrain from alcohol and smoking two days before your appointment. On the day of your treatment, avoid waxing, shaving, laser hair removal, or depilatory creams in the treatment area. Loose and comfortable clothing is recommended. We also advise you not to apply lotion to the treatment area.
When Will You See the Results?
Although some patients may notice results a month after their first QWO treatment, it typically takes three to four months for the full effects to become apparent. It takes time for the enzymes to break down the collagen bands that contribute to the appearance of cellulite.
