When you look in the mirror, do you notice that your skin has more dimples in your thighs and buttocks? Cellulite affects many women as they age, regardless of how healthy their lifestyle may be with diet and exercise. You need to know what causes cellulite and how you can treat it from the source with QWO.
What is QWO, and how can it help you? Learn more about how these revolutionary injections can reduce visible cellulite.
What Causes Cellulite?
Plenty of misconceptions are floating around about what leads to cellulite in the thighs and buttocks. Most people mistakenly believe that cellulite is the result of being overweight, eating an unhealthy diet, and neglecting to exercise. However, cellulite is a bit more complicated than these ideas would lead you to believe.
Cellulite is actually caused by the following three factors:
- Thicker fibrous bands underneath the skin
- Thinner skin
- Larger fat cells that push and create dimples
These three factors are an inherent part of the aging process. As you get older, fat cells will increase in size as the fibrous bands become thicker, pushing both closer to the thinning skin layer. The result is the telltale dimpling that many patients wish they could eliminate.
Fat does not directly cause cellulite, though it does play a leading role in its development. If those cells get too big and wedge themselves between the fibrous bands, you will start to develop the dips and bumps associated with cellulite. Weight loss can diminish the appearance of cellulite, but it may not eliminate it.
Women tend to see more cellulite development than men because men have thicker skin and a different orientation of their collagen bands. However, men with higher estrogen levels may still see the development of cellulite if they have enough fat cells in a given area.
What Is QWO Cellulite Treatment?
If you have seen an increase in cellulite in your thighs or buttocks, it might be time to investigate whether QWO cellulite injections are the right treatment option for you. QWO addresses the development of cellulite at the source — something that can’t be accomplished through diet and exercise.
This treatment uses enzymes to help minimize the fibrous nature of the collagen banding in these two prime treatment areas. QWO cellulite treatments work to improve skin texture and reduce dimples and minor imperfections.
The injectable enzymes will help your body form new collagen in the treatment areas, which can improve volume in the thighs and buttocks. In other words, you can see the results on the outside as your skin and collagen levels undergo steady changes on the inside.
The result is a decrease in the dimpling associated with cellulite — and you won’t have to hit the gym any harder than you usually do!
If you are thinking about all of the different methods that promise to reduce cellulite, why should you choose QWO? Benefits abound for this treatment, and we think that you’ll agree once you hear about what they can offer you.
QWO cellulite treatment is non-surgical and non-invasive. This means that you will have very little downtime following each session. We do not need to use anesthesia or make incisions for you to get the benefits of treatment. You will simply have to lay prone for about five minutes after your injections.
It is also a quick treatment. It takes us less than 20 minutes to complete a series of QWO injections. This means you could conceivably schedule your treatment during a long lunch break, and no one has to be any wiser that you have had QWO. It’s easy to work into a busy schedule.
Of course, the most obvious benefit is that QWO reduces cellulite appearance in the thighs and buttocks. The results are quite long-lasting, making it simple for you to maintain them over time. You won’t have to schedule lots of follow-up appointments with our office just to keep your cellulite at bay.
The Ideal Candidate
The ideal candidate for QWO is a woman who is 18 or older with moderate to severe cellulite in the thighs or buttocks.
Please note that QWO cellulite treatment is not a weight loss program, so you will need to maintain your results through nutrition and exercise. We are more than happy to meet with you for a consultation to see if you are a good fit for QWO!
QWO Cellulite Injections Results
The results of QWO cellulite injections are long-lasting, with many patients reporting long-term changes that last for years. Of course, you have to be willing to maintain these changes with a healthy diet and exercise.
Increased fat in these areas can undo the results of QWO, so make sure that you are adhering to a healthy lifestyle even before you sign up for your first treatment.
For the best results, we recommend that you have three sessions of QWO cellulite injections. Each one will be spaced three weeks apart to allow your body to adjust to the new changes. A consultation is the first step to finding out whether QWO injections are right for you.
