Finally, it’s here, a cellulite reduction and skin smoothing injection…QWO®!
For many women there is nothing more frustrating than the appearance of cellulite on their buttocks. The “cottage cheese” appearance of cellulite is unattractive and difficult to treat. At Chameleon Medical Spa, Dr. Boyd and his skincare specialists are excited to offer the first and only FDA-approved injectable to address moderate-to-severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women.
WHAT IS CELLULITE?
Yes, it is true that most women will develop cellulite in their lifetime. Some men also are troubled with cellulite, but it is far more common in women. Women typically develop cellulite in their buttocks, hips, and thighs.
Cellulite is caused when the connective tissue bands beneath a person’s skin and surrounding the fat cells becomes tight resulting in the skin being pulled down and creating skin depressions. Next, the trapped and enlarged fat cells push up against the skin causing cellulite. As you age the skin begins to thin and the appearance of cellulite becomes more pronounced.
Clients often mistakenly believe that cellulite is caused by excess fat and that diet and exercise will help. Unfortunately, no amount of dieting or exercise will cause cellulite to shrink or go away. But QWO® cellulite reduction and skin smoothing injections may be the answer for you.
WHAT IS QWO AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
QWO® works by using two types of collagen-degrading enzymes that break the fibrous bands down which connect the skin to the muscle. The tethers will gradually dissolve which means the skin will float up and smooth out. Up to 24 dimples may be treated every treatment.*
QWO® is injected directly into targeted dimples in the buttocks using a small needle. QWO® cellulite treatment is an in-office procedure, and the treatments are scheduled about 21 days apart. Results are typically seen after 71 days.*
IS QWO® SAFE?
QWO® is FDA-approved to treat moderate-to-severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. The injections are safe for women of all skin tones and colors. During your consultation, our team will evaluate your medical history and goals to determine if QWO® is right for you.
