Cellulite is a very common issue that becomes more visible with age. Regardless of your fitness level, cellulite can happen. You can exercise your heart out and eat a very strict healthy diet, but that cellulite will not go away.
The reason that diet and exercise don’t get cellulite to budge is that they don’t treat the root cause of the problem. Weight loss can sometimes diminish the appearance of cellulite, but it won’t eliminate it.
Sometimes, losing weight can even make cellulite more noticeable because of the loose skin that can result, especially if the weight loss is dramatic. Cellulite isn’t affected by what you eat or how much you move because it’s not fat.
If this sounds familiar, it may be time for QWO cellulite treatment from Columbia Laser Skin Center. Read on for more information about cellulite and how QWO works to target it.
What Is Cellulite?
Although cellulite might seem like fat, it’s actually three different things that work together to contribute to the dimpled skin that’s associated with this condition. Those three things are:
- Skin that gets thinner as you age
- Fibrous collagen bands beneath the skin that get more rigid
- Fat cells that get larger
Fibrous bands connect skin cells to fat cells. Your skin takes on a dimpled look as you age because the bands do not stretch far enough to reach the skin. These dimples show up where the stiff bands pull the skin in.
The fat cells between the rigid bands also contribute to the dimpled look of skin as they get bigger. As these cells get larger, they bulge between the bands, making the dimples, lumps, and bumps more visible.
Women are more likely to suffer from cellulite than men, and most often, it appears on the thighs and buttocks. Men have thicker skin than women, and their bands of collagen are laid out in a criss-cross pattern. This pattern makes it almost impossible for dimpling to occur.
How Can You Get Rid of Cellulite, Since Diet and Exercise Don’t Work?
A revolutionary new treatment called QWO is available, making excellent results possible. This cellulite treatment uses special enzymes to loosen and break down those rigid bands of collagen that are responsible for the dimples of cellulite.
What Is QWO Cellulite Treatment?
QWO is an injectable solution that improves the skin’s texture as it smooths away lumps and bumps. Once the bands have broken down, the body creates new collagen to help revolumize the skin.
QWO injections are FDA-approved for treating cellulite. It’s the only treatment of its kind. Results may be subtle at first but will reach optimal progress three to four months after treatment. The benefits you see from QWO cellulite treatment can last for months or years.
How Are QWO Cellulite Injections Given?
Areas that you want to be targeted with this cellulite treatment will be outlined. QWO cellulite injections are then given in the dimples of the buttocks or thighs where you want the cellulite to diminish.
Once the treatment is complete, you’ll lie comfortably on your stomach for about five minutes; then, you can be on your way.
The ideal treatment plan for those who are interested in QWO cellulite injections is a series of three sessions. Treatments will be spaced out three weeks apart to maximize results. They are given right in our office and only take 20 minutes or less.
Receiving QWO is more comfortable than other injectables, like Botox, that work on the face. This is because there are fewer sensory nerves in the thighs and buttocks than on the face.
Benefits of QWO Cellulite Treatment
There are several excellent benefits for those who receive QWO. Some of the biggest include the following:
- Treatment is quick and comfortable
- No downtime or recovery time is needed
- It can improve the look of your skin without surgery
- It’s non-invasive
- You’ll finally decrease stubborn cellulite
- You’ll enjoy more wardrobe choices
- No anesthesia and no incisions are required
After your treatment session, you’ll be able to return to your normal activities right away. One month after your third treatment, you’ll have a follow-up appointment, which is when you’ll discuss with us the exciting progress of your results.
Who Is a Good Candidate for QWO Treatment?
If you are 18 years old or older and you’re not allergic to the ingredients or enzymes in the injectable, you might be a great candidate for QWO cellulite injections. QWO is indicated for the treatment of cellulite that is moderate to severe.
We’ll guide you through the process and help you decide whether QWO treatment is right for you.
