Our experienced team of aesthetic professionals here at Pinsky Plastic Surgery is excited to offer a new option for cellulite that offers women a truly revolutionary way to diminish signs of cellulite in the buttocks. QWO® is a completely non-surgical solution that has proven effective for diminishing the skin depressions associated with cellulite and leading to a smoother and healthier look. QWO® joins Cellfina™, another advanced cellulite treatment available from our practice, as part of our continuing effort to provide patients with effective, minimally-invasive options for treating this very common concern.
QWO® is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of moderate to severe degrees of cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. Unlike virtually every other treatment method available for cellulite, QWO® is an injectable solution. The composition of the QWO® solution includes enzymes called collagenases. It is believed that collagenases are able to target specific fibrous bands deep within the skin that pull superficial dermal layers down, ultimately creating the telltale craters and dimples that are characteristic of cellulite. The QWO® solution is designed to release the fibrous bands, redistribute fat cells, and stimulate new growth of the skin’s natural collagen in the treatment area to significantly diminish signs of cellulite for a much smoother appearance.
It often takes up to 10 weeks before the initial results of QWO® become apparent; however, some individuals may notice the aesthetic benefits of the treatment much earlier than that. It is important for patients to complete the entire three-treatment cycle for the best results. While QWO® may not make cellulite disappear completely, this solution is capable of dramatically reducing signs of the condition for a much smoother look.
