Swimsuit season is just around the corner! At Southeastern Aesthetic Surgery, we understand that swimsuit season may be causing you more anxiety than excitement. That’s why we’re here to tell you that we can help you calm that anxiety and boost your confidence with QWO – the first and only injectable treatment for moderate to severe cellulite. Let’s take a deeper dive into this treatment and how you can benefit from its results in no time.
What is QWO Treatment for Cellulite?
QWO is the first and only FDA-approved prescription injectable treatment that safely and effectively treats moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks and thighs of adult women. Unlike other traditional cellulite treatments, QWO does not require the use of any cutting, scarring, or anesthesia. Instead, QWO requires just three treatments spaced 21 days apart from non-surgical and minimally invasive injections. Each treatment will last just 10 minutes at our office, making it the perfect treatment on the go or during your lunch break!
How Does QWO Work?
QWO is an injectable treatment formulated with a special type of enzyme called collagenase. This enzyme does three things to help reduce the appearance of cellulite on the surface of the skin:
- It releases the fibrous bands of connective tissue that contribute to the “puckering” effect cellulite has on the skin.
- It redistributes the fat cells that have gathered around these previous fibrous bands that reinforced the “puckering” look of cellulite.
- It stimulates the growth of new collagen in the skin to smooth away uneven skin texture and provide you with the smooth, beautiful skin you desire.
What Results Can I Expect From QWO?
In a clinical trial with more than 1,800 participants, those who received three full doses of QWO 21 days apart found positive improvement in the overall appearance of their unwanted cellulite. Because QWO is still a fairly new prescription medication for the treatment of cellulite, how long the results of your QWO treatments will last is still unknown. That being said, patients who received three treatments of QWO are still satisfied with their results following their final treatments.
Is QWO Right for Me?
If you’re looking for a non-surgical treatment to reduce the appearance of your moderate to severe cellulite, QWO may be right for you. Ideal candidates for QWO are in good general health and have realistic expectations of their results. If you currently take any blood-thinning medications, we encourage you to talk to Dr. Troy Austin before starting your QWO treatments. We encourage all of our patients to schedule a private consultation with Dr. Austin to find out if QWO is a good option for them.
