01. What is cellulite?
Cellulite is the appearance of an uneven surface occurring when the skin over areas of fat pulls down over the deeper tissues by connective tissue bands. The skin in these areas then appears dimpled or bumpy–what some describe as a “cottage cheese” appearance.
Cellulite is caused over time by a few phenomenons that are completely normal and natural:
- Thinning skin
- Enlarged fat cells that push against the skin
- Thickening fibrous bands under the skin causing tension and a rippling appearance
What cellulite is not? An indicator of your health and fitness. Cellulite affects women of all sizes and isn’t necessarily determined by your body type or weight. Other factors that may contribute to cellulite include hormones, diet, lifestyle, and genetics, just to name a few.
Cellulite is a natural part of women’s biology. No amount of exercise or dieting can eliminate it completely, so cellulite treatment has historically relied on invasive surgeries or less effective topical treatments to diminish the appearance. That is, until QWO!
02. What is QWO cellulite treatment?
QWO cellulite treatment is a non-invasive, non-surgical cosmetic injection used to treat moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. The injection is made up of Collagenase clostridium histolyticum–or collagenases–an enzyme that targets the structural causes of cellulite under the skin.
03. How does QWO cellulite treatment work?
Once injected, it is believed that the collagenases in QWO dissolve the collagen bands that fat cells are pushing against under the skin. Once these bands are dissolved, there is no more tension causing the fat to press through the skin. Bye-bye, butt dimples!
Injections will redistribute fat cells and stimulate the regeneration of new collagen, creating newer and more youthful-looking skin–without the bumps and waves.
04. What to expect at your QWO appointment.
You’re going to love this! It takes just 10 minutes or less for your QWO cellulite treatment.
When you arrive at the studio, your expertly trained OVME injector will review the area of concern (don’t be shy!) and prepare you with expectations and a customized treatment plan which will include how many treatments they recommend for the severity of your cellulite.
Then it’s time for your butt dimples to make their grand exit! QWO is injected with a tiny needle directly into the dimpled areas. You will feel very little pain or discomfort, and it’s over before you know it. If you’ve ever had Botox, this will be a breeze. The needle feels very similar to the quick pinch you experience with Botox injections.
Because QWO injections are nonsurgical and noninvasive, they don’t demand extensive recovery periods and patients have experienced zero downtime after treatment.
05. How long does QWO cellulite treatment last?
Depending on the size of the area treated and the severity of the cellulite appearance, visible results may be achieved in as little as 10 weeks, with many women receiving three treatments 21 days apart. The effects of QWO cellulite treatment will vary by patient, but studies have shown the effects to last for one to two years.
06. How much does QWO cellulite treatment cost?
QWO cellulite treatment price varies depending on the severity of the cellulite and the size of the area being treated. Most QWO cellulite treatment costs will range from $1,500 to $3,000 for multiple sessions.
The best news for your butt dimples is that OVME members enjoy exclusive cost savings on QWO cellulite treatment along with other spectacular savings on facials, fillers, and more!
07. Is QWO cellulite treatment safe?
Yes! QWO is the only FDA-approved injectable for treating cellulite and has been studied in more patients than any other injectable cellulite treatment.
Nonetheless, you should not receive QWO if you are allergic to collagenase or to any of the ingredients in QWO, or have an active infection at the treatment area. It’s always a good idea to talk to your healthcare provider about any concerns or conditions prior to receiving treatment. For a complete list of safety and patient information, visit QWO.com.
08. QWO cellulite treatment side effects and downtime
There are very few QWO side effects, but the most common side effect is bruising at the injection site, which resolved in less than three weeks and lessened after each treatment. Patients experience zero downtime after treatment, and are on their way to the gym, to work, and all other daily activities the very next day.
Other side effects are rare but may include allergic (hypersensitivity) reactions (including anaphylaxis), pain, areas of hardness, itching, redness, discoloration, swelling, and warmth in the treatment area.
09. Does QWO treat cellulite in other areas of the body?
QWO is FDA-approved for treating cellulite in the buttocks only, therefore we will not be treating other areas of the body at this time.
