You had two options for treating cellulite in the past: invasive procedures like liposuction or skin-tightening treatments that may not achieve your desired results. The FDA has approved Qwo® as the first injectable cellulite treatment. This new option for removing cellulite can provide aesthetically pleasing, long-lasting results.
What is Qwo®?
Qwo® is an innovation in cellulite treatment that lets you receive a series of injections that restore smoother, more even skin. Qwo® has been approved to work on moderate to severe cellulite in women’s buttocks. Most women cannot get rid of cellulite with diet and exercise alone. Qwo® addresses the root cause of cellulite and stops it from causing your dimpled skin.
How Does Qwo® Work?
Cellulite occurs when fibrous collagen bands adhere to the skin and underlying muscle. As a result, the skin becomes pulled down into dimples. Forced between these restrictive bands, fat cells also bulge upward, making the skin uneven and causing a “lumpy” appearance. Celli\ulite often becomes more visible with age as thinning skin makes the dimples more noticeable.
These fibrous bands are made up of collagen. Qwo® uses enzymes called collagenases that break down certain types of collagen fibers. When these bands break down, they release the skin to lift up and remove the overlying dimple. Fat cells can also redistribute more smoothly to eliminate the uneven appearance of cellulite.
Some people experience swelling and minor soreness around the injection sites. This should not prevent you from resuming your usual activities. Any bruising that appears should disappear entirely within about three weeks.
What Results Will I See Qwo®?
Most people need three treatments, each three weeks apart, to see their best results. Each treatment takes as little as ten minutes, making Qwo® a fast and effective option for cellulite removal. You will start seeing results within a few weeks of your first session as the fibrous bands break down and the skin becomes free. You will notice your cellulite dimples become smoother and the uneven appearance become even and smooth. Results continue to develop throughout your treatment and even afterward.
Am I a Good Candidate for Qwo®?
Women with moderate to severe cellulite in their buttocks make the best candidates for Qwo®. We may recommend that you avoid Qwo® if you have had an adverse reaction to collagenase enzymes in the past. People with an infection in or near the treatment area will need to have this treated before getting Qwo®.
“Awesome staff! I got kybella injections for my double chin with Adriana and I’m very happy with the outcome. Also getting IPL and hydrafacials with Kristi and I’m super excited of how my skin looks. Everybody very professional and very knowledgeable. I recommend anyone to come to this place for their beauty needs.”
My experience with Dr. Sozer and his staff was outstanding!! I had bariatric surgery 18 months ago and lost a total of 126 lbs. I was wanting to remove excess skin and lift areas of my body that had gone south. I was very unhappy with the way I was looking. I explained my needs and wants to Dr. Sozer and he understood what I was wanting. Dr. Sozer took the time to explain the entire process.
Dr. Sozer is incredible at listening to your goals and giving you great recommendations on how to best get you there. In addition, he is an expert surgeon who can follow through with the recommendations and give you beautiful, natural results. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.
Dr. Sozer managed to give me back the self-image that I had after a botched abdominal surgery that had left me with craters and scars. His talent and artistry took me from a condition where I was embarrassed to remove my shirt, to the best I have ever looked. In fact, I went back shortly after for a procedure on my chest, which completed the look I have always wanted! I will always go back to El Paso Cosmetic Surgery for any future aesthetic procedure.
My experience with Dr. Sozer was great throughout the whole process. During my initial consultation, he explained my pre-op and post-op procedures in great detail. I particularly enjoyed the high tech imaging where I was able to see the type of outcome I would achieve with my surgery. I work in the health care industry and was really pleased with the level of service his staff provided. . At this point, I am currently at week 7 post-op, my recovery has been quicker than expected and I can perform normal activities with some caution.
Yo estoy super contenta y satisfecha con los servicios recibidos en El Paso Cosmetic Surgery. El Dr. Sozer es muy profesional, me dio muchísima confianza desde el principio y contesto todas mis dudas y preguntas. Todo su personal es muy amable, las chicas en recepción y las enfermeras muy serviciales. Absolutamente creo que es el mejor lugar para obtener una cirugía cosmética. Estoy super contenta con los resultados de mi Mommy Makeover y de otros tratamientos que obtuve en mi rostro, sobrepaso mis expectativas en todos los aspectos. Gracias a Dr. Sozer y a todo su personal por hacerme sentir una mamá mas joven y bella!!
