QWO

QWO® can help you get to the bottom of your cellulite.

The majority of women will have cellulite in their lifetime – around 8 to 9 out of 10, in fact. Although both men and women can get cellulite, it is much more common in women. Unfortunately, it’s just something that happens as part of our biology. And while exercise and eating well are great for your overall health, they won’t do much to reduce stubborn cellulite. The good news is that we have a solution!

The Basics

  • QWO® is an FDA-approved medicine used to treat cellulite in the buttocks.
  • QWO® is a minimally invasive treatment option.
  • Cellulite is structurally caused and can be treated.
  • Three treatments of QWO® are required for best results.

Why Do Patients Choose QWO®?

QWO® is here to help you get rid of cellulite and boost your confidence. Patients choose QWO® when they experience a dimpling appearance under their skin known as cellulite. In sunny Southern California where swimsuit season is almost year round, cellulite can be more noticeable and visible. Although cellulite is completely natural, its appearance can cause self-consciousness and affect our quality of life.

Fortunately, QWO® is a non-surgical therapy that has been clinically shown to reduce cellulite in adult women. It’s the first and only FDA-approved injectable for cellulite treatment in adult females’ buttocks. This region is one of the most frequent locations for cellulite development, and the effects of this therapy may be life-changing.

How Does It Work?

Cellulite can be caused by poor connective tissue pulling down on the skin, resulting in a lumpy appearance. The following are some of the things that may cause cellulite to develop:

  • Cellulite is more common in women (80-90 percent of women have some degree of cellulite).
  • Changes in hormones.
  • Poor circulation leads to a decrease in collagen synthesis.
  • Age.

QWO® has collagenase enzymes in it, which is why it’s so effective at dissolving underlying tight collagen bands that cause dimpling of the skin. According to researchers, the enzymes target the structural origins underlying the skin where cellulite begins, releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating new non-deforming collagen growth. Cellulite dimples are reduced as a result of this action.

Your QWO® Treatment in Newport Beach

The QWO® treatment is administered as a three-injection series that takes place three weeks apart. Our private Orange County office hosts the QWO® treatment, which is carried out by our trained, qualified, and licensed staff using procedures verified by our Plastic Surgeon Medical Directors. The majority of treatments take only a few minutes, but more time is allotted to sketch and photograph the area before the procedure begins. The injection is performed with an extremely tiny needle that causes virtually no discomfort during the process.

QWO’s Other Features

With QWO® , patients can leave our office after the treatment and go about their day without any downtime. Injection site bruising is to be expected in the days following your treatment, but this usually resolves within 2 weeks. The majority of our Newport Beach QWO® patients do experience some bruising, so you may want to avoid scheduling injections close to events where you might need to wear something revealing like a swimsuit. As you return for subsequent treatments, bruising may lessen with each one.
