Qwo® cellulite treatment is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that is safe to address moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks and thighs for women. Qwo® cellulite treatment in Arcadia at La Bella Laser & Slimming can reduce cellulite dents and dimples. This leaves you with smooth thighs and a youthful, toned buttocks to show off.
This state-of-the-art treatment initiates a process called enzymatic subcision and remodeling to get rid of “cottage cheese” thighs or “orange peel” buttocks. Beach life is a way of living in sunny Southern California, so cellulite reduction is a must. Say goodbye to that unwanted cellulite with Qwo®.
Qwo® (collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes) is a minimally invasive non-surgical injectable medication approved by the FDA to effectively smooth away the uneven contours of cellulite.
Qwo® injections are administered into the regions of the patient where cellulite can be found. These are typically the thighs or the buttocks. Treatment results in a younger, tighter appearance for the thighs and buttocks.
Results May Vary
Qwo® contains enzymes called collagenase that target structures under the skin to initiate a process called Enzymatic Subcision and Remodeling (ESR™). This includes three steps:
Qwo® cellulite treatment works by being injected directly into the dimples that are formed by cellulite. The collagenase enzymes in Qwo® disrupt the cellulite’s fibrous septa. These septa pull down the skin, and they also constrict fat cells, creating the skin’s dimpled appearance.
When the septa are released using Qwo®, the tension is no longer present on the skin. When the fat cells are no longer constricted, they redistribute more evenly. This creates smoother skin.
If you are currently suffering from thighs or buttocks that have severe cases of dimpling or waviness as a result of cellulite, Qwo® treatment is right for you. You must have realistic expectations and should also be in good health.
This treatment is not approved for pregnant women, women who plan to become pregnant, or women who are breastfeeding. It is also not recommended to those who are allergic to collagenase.
Scheduling a consultation with one of our medical aesthetic experts for a Qwo® cellulite treatment will help patients learn more about the treatment details. Your consultant will examine the areas of concern, and overall health will also be evaluated to make sure this treatment is right for you.
To help achieve desired results, patients should complete all three treatment sessions spaced three weeks apart. Patients may receive up to 12 injections per buttock for a maximum of 24 injections for both buttocks in one single session. Qwo® treatment is a quick procedure; it can be done in the office and even can be done during your lunch break—no anesthesia needed.
Patients who have undergone Qwo® treatments typically have bruising that can last one to two weeks after each treatment. Patients report mild to moderate soreness, which can be alleviated with Tylenol or ibuprofen.
Patients may see an improvement as early as three weeks after their treatment. Improvement continues after this point, and to help achieve desired results, patients should complete all three treatment sessions.
Maintenance treatments may be necessary to maintain initial treatment results.
