Qwo® injections: a revolutionary non-surgical treatment for cellulite in Montclair, NJ
Cellulite is prevalent, and while many women have it on the buttocks and legs, its appearance can hurt your self-confidence. If you have moderate to severe cellulite, you no longer have to choose between living with its lumpy, dimpled appearance or undergoing an invasive surgical procedure. At image Dermatology® P.C. in Montclair, NJ, we are excited to offer a revolutionary new cellulite treatment option: Qwo® injections.
What is Qwo, and how does it work?
Qwo is the first injectable treatment that the FDA has approved to treat moderate to severe cellulite in adult women. To understand how it works, it helps to know what causes cellulite. Many people believe cellulite is caused by loose or lax skin. Still, in reality, the puckered appearance of cellulite is due to fibrous collagen bands (called “fibrous septae”) pulling the skin towards the muscle beneath it, causing a layer of fat to begin pushing upward. That results in the lumpy, cottage cheese-like appearance of cellulite. Qwo injections target these collagen bands using an enzyme called collagenase clostridium histolyticum (CCH), which naturally occurs in the body and helps break down collagen in specific areas to reduce cellulite appearance and improve the smoothness of the buttocks area.
Benefits of Qwo injections
Treatment cellulite with Qwo injections is:
- Proven to be effective in studies of over 1800 women
- Non-surgical, so you don’t need to deal with incisions, sutures, lasers, or post-operative healing
- Approved by the FDA for women with moderate to severe cellulite
- Free from downtime so that you can get back to your daily activities right after your treatment
- Fast and easy; your total treatment time is only about 30 minutes per session, and a minimum of three treatments sessions required
- This can be done on the buttocks and the thighs
Actual Patient Results
Additionally, Qwo can be used in all races/ethnicities and is a great option for both younger and more mature women. While treatment with Qwo is safe and FDA-approved, it is important to note that there can be significant eggplant purple bruising in the injection area, so this procedure is more popular during the fall, winter, and spring months.
