That means your tough workouts and healthy eating habits are fantastic for your fitness and overall wellness—but won’t do much to reduce your cellulite.
If you really want to reduce cellulite, you need to understand what’s behind it.
What is Cellulite ?
Cellulite is that unpleasing dimpling in the skin that drives both men women crazy because of its irregular appearance.
Cellulite results from connective bands connecting fat to the skin surface. These bands create the cellulite dimple. It is simply a structural issue beneath the skin that can only be eliminated by going under the skin to “restructure” the area.
Cellulite is Not :
Fat or a sign that you are fat.
Caused by what, or how much, you eat.
Caused by not exercising enough.
QWO will reduce the size and appearance of Cellulite
QWO is the ONLY FDA-approved medication that dissolves the cellulite band AND stimulates collage to smooth the skin. QWO is a simple office procedure that takes only a few minutes and improves cellulite in 3 treatment sessions spaced about 3 weeks apart.
What is QWO?
QWO is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women
What are results with QWO?
Visible results may be achieved in 10 weeks. In clinical studies, women received 3 treatments of QWO, 21 days apart.
Patients in the Qwo clinical study showed significant improvement after 3 treatment sessions and the results were maintained throughout the duration of the study. QWO patients report high rates of satisfaction with their treatment results.
How many women have taken part in QWO studies?
QWO has been studied in more patients than any other FDA-approved injectable cellulite treatment, with over 1,800 women participating.
In two pivotal phase 3 clinical studies of adult women with moderate to severe cellulite, 424 were treated with QWO, and 419 received placebo.
How is QWO given?
QWO is injected by Dr. Iannitelli directly into targeted dimples in the buttocks using a small needle.
How many treatments will I receive?
If Dr Iannitelli determines that QWO is right for you, she will decide on a treatment plan, including a total number of treatments.
Each treatment visit may include up to 2 treatment areas. QWO injections will be given 21 days apart for 3 treatment visits.
How long do the injections take?
At each office visit, injections take as little as 15 minutes.
How much bruising can I expect after each treatment?
QWO may cause serious side effects: allergic (hypersensitivity) reactions, including anaphylaxis and injection site bruising.
In clinical trials, women required no post-treatment downtime. Most bruising lessened after each treatment and resolved in less than 21 days.
How does QWO work?
It’s not fully understood how QWO works in moderate to severe cellulite. The enzymes in QWO—called collagenases—are believed to target a structural cause under your skin.
It’s thought that QWO works in 3 ways: releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen.
Are there any side effects?
You should not receive QWO if you are allergic to any collagenase or the ingredients in QWO, or have an active infection in the treatment area.
QWO may cause serious side effects including allergic (hypersensitivity) reactions, including anaphylaxis, and injection site bruising.
The most common side effects of QWO include injection site bruising, pain, areas of hardness, itching, redness, discoloration, swelling, and warmth in the treatment area.
These are not all the possible side effects of QWO.
