QWO Beverly Hills

Cellulite can be a frustrating, unwanted experience. 90 percent of women have cellulite, and if you’re one of them who has tried diet and exercise, cream and lotions, you have probably found yourself at a loss when it comes to getting real results. Factually, cellulite will not resolve or reduce using natural methods or special topical treatments because the issue is actually below the skin.

Qwo--the injectable that battles cellulite

Qwo is a powerful injectable treatment designed to get to the root of the cellulite problem--the cords that are under your skin.

Vertical cords connect your skin to the muscle beneath it. Fat cells are in between the skin and muscles, and the vertical connecting cords run through the fat tissues. As fat cells accumulate, they push up against the skin while the cords pull down. As your skin becomes more lax, the cords tighten and the fat compartments bulge. This is seen as cellulite--dimpled, uneven skin.

You can work out, eat right and try various skin care methods, but none of those solutions are going to affect those vertical cords and the cellulite they create.

How does Qwo work?

Qwo (rhymes with go!) is the only FDA-approved injectable for treating moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks. This advancement in treating cellulite is a big step forward because it is the first treatment to target the fibrous cords themselves.

Qwo was created based on enzymes that would address the fibrous vertical cords and release them. This release allows a redistribution of fat cells. Qwo also stimulates the growth of new collagen, which is one of your body’s natural and powerful building blocks to create fresh new cells.

Qwo dissolves the cords and their hold on your skin is released. The cellulite dimple is gone completely, leaving the skin smooth again.

What happens during a Qwo procedure?

Before the injection process begins, your specialist will identify the areas that need to be addressed. You will stand relaxed, with your feet apart, as your specialist examines you. The dimples are selected for treatment and are then marked with a dot and circled on the skin.

You will be asked to lie face down. Qwo is then injected into the fat of each of these areas to dissolve the fibrous bands that are causing these wrinkles or dimples. A maximum of 6-12 dimples per buttock are treated, and the injection procedure will take about ten minutes.

After the injections are complete, you will remain lying down for another five minutes. This allows Qwo to take full effect.

Two more injection treatments, each three weeks apart, will follow this procedure.

How long will Qwo results last?

28 days after the third injection, you will have the final results of the treatment. The dimples or wrinkles that were treated will be gone, leaving smooth skin.

Qwo’s excellent results can be expected to last for at least a year, possibly longer.

Is there a recovery period or downtime after Qwo?

You will have bruising or mild/moderate soreness after your treatment. Patients do not find the treatment painful, but for a few days afterward, there is a sore feeling, similar to the experience you have after a strong workout.
