There are a lot of misconceptions about cellulite. The most common, of course, is its presence due to lack of exercise and a poor diet. Well, anyone who works out rigorously and eats a healthy diet, but STILL has cellulite will challenge that theory!
In fact, cellulite is caused by three main factors…thinning skin, fat cells pushing against the skin, and thick, fibrous collagen bands thickening beneath the skin. So no matter how hard you work out or how well you eat, you can still develop cellulite or have a difficult time making it go away. That is until now! Skin NV is proud to announce QWO – the first FDA-sanctioned injectable treatment for the removal of moderate to severe cellulite. Keep reading to learn more….
How does the QWO treatment work?
QWO injectable treatment is formulated with enzymes called collagenases that target and degrade the collagen molecules that cause dimpling, making it an ideal treatment for individuals who have cellulite caused by fibrous collagen bands.
The injectable process involves three steps:
Step #1: The injections release the thickening collagen bands.
Step #2: Fat cells are redistributed.
Step #3: The production of new, healthy collagen is stimulated.
At Skin NV, our Tampa QWO injectable treatments involve three sessions, 21 days apart. Each session is quick (30 minutes or less!), relatively painless, and there is little to no downtime. In fact, most patients resume regular activity immediately after treatment.
Are there any side effects with QWO injectable treatments?
QWO injectable treatments are non-invasive, however, minor side effects such as bruising around the injection site and minor pain can occur. Symptoms are typically mild and go away within two to three weeks.
When can I expect to see results?
Most patients will see visible results between 10 to 21 days after treatment! It is important to note that everyone responds differently to treatments. Upon completion of your treatments, you will have regular follow-up visits with Dr. Devol where she will closely monitor your progress.
