There are injectables that can combat dynamic lines and wrinkles, injectables that can restore volume to the face, and even injectables that can eliminate a double chin. What if we told you there was an injectable that could eliminate cellulite? We have good news: there is, and you can find it right here at our office. At Bel Viso Medical Spa in East Greenwich, RI, we offer an injectable treatment called QWO that can finally eliminate cellulite once and for all.
What Is QWO?
QWO is an FDA-approved cosmetic injectable designed to eliminate cellulite on the buttocks. The buttocks are the most common areas affected by cellulite. Cellulite is unattractive and can make you feel insecure in swimsuits, form-fitting clothing, and anytime you look in a mirror.
However, this injectable can finally treat cellulite and eliminate it so that you can have a smoother skin texture defined by uniformity instead of irregularity. It contains an active ingredient called collagenase that addresses cellulite at its source, which is in the skin’s structural layers.
How Does It Work?
This non-surgical treatment reduces cellulite in short treatment sessions that can take as few as 10 minutes to complete. The substance is injected directly into the cellulite dimples located on the buttocks.
The injection process takes place with the use of an ultra-fine needle, so the treatment is virtually painless. The enzymes in the active ingredient in this injectable address the structural issues below the skin’s surface. They also address the main factors that contribute to cellulite in the first place.
Addressing Cellulite at the Source
There are fibrous bands in place within your skin’s structure that are thought to cause the appearance of cellulite. When the fat cells get caught within these fibrous brands, it creates the appearance of cellulite.
This injectable is designed to loosen those fibrous bands and allow the fat cells to move freely beneath the skin while increasing collagen production in the area. That means not only will you see improvements in your treatment area, but you’ll get tighter skin post-treatment.
What Can It Treat?
QWO injections can treat moderate to severe cellulite dimples on the buttocks.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Since different patients have different degrees of cellulite on their buttocks, each treatment plan will look a little different. An initial consultation is the best way to find out more about this treatment process and learn what your treatment plan will look like based on your specific cellulite.
Typically, we treat two areas per QWO session. Typical treatment plans include three visits scheduled 21 days apart. The best results will come from following the treatment plan that is designed for your unique needs.
Is There Any Downtime?
Once you undergo a cellulite reduction treatment, you won’t have to plan around any downtime. It’s non-surgical, minimally invasive, and virtually painless. Your injector may provide you with some minimal aftercare instructions regarding how to care for the injection sites, but other than that, you can resume your normal daily activities.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
Patients who choose to undergo this treatment can expect to see results within ten weeks of their initial treatment session. Those who achieved the best and most noticeable results and took part in clinical studies underwent three treatments with 21 days between each.
Is It Safe?
This treatment has been studied and proven to be an effective way to address and correct cellulite. It’s the first FDA-approved injectable that can treat and eliminate cellulite dimples on the buttocks. The results are real, studied, and proven and will help you achieve firmer and tighter skin within ten weeks are beginning the treatment process.
You can rest assured that you will be undergoing a safe and effective treatment that will help you achieve real, noticeable results when you begin this treatment process. You will experience smoother, tighter, and younger-looking skin and will have an increased sense of confidence. You’ll take pride in the appearance of your buttocks and will even feel more comfortable wearing swimsuits and form-fitting clothing.
Am I a Candidate?
If you want to target cellulite, tighten the skin on your buttocks, and achieve a more even and uniform skin texture, you are most likely a good candidate for QWO injections. A consultation with one of our injectors is the best way to determine if this anti-cellulite treatment is right for you. During the consultation, we will review your medical history, examine your treatment area, and discuss the process in detail.
It’s important that you provide us with a list of any medications or supplements you are currently taking, as well as any medical conditions you have experienced in the past. This information will help us confirm that it’s right for you and help you know what to expect.
Who Isn’t a Candidate?
There are some patients who will not qualify for treatment, including those who have any type of bleeding disorder, pregnant or nursing women, women who plan on becoming pregnant or plan on nursing, and those who are currently taking anticoagulants.
Additionally, those who are allergic to collagenase or any of the ingredients in the injectable must abstain from treatment. Those with an active infection in or near the treatment sites must wait until that infection has healed to schedule treatment sessions.
