Few cosmetic concerns are as frustrating as cellulite, which affects up to 90% of women. The lumps and bumps that are the hallmarks of cellulite can appear on women of all sizes and shapes and, once they appear, can be very difficult to eliminate. Until now.
Instead of an invasive and uncomfortable procedure, Dr. Manuel Lopez offers the innovative QWO® injectable here at Advanced Aesthetics Lopez Plastic Surgery. This FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment can banish moderate-to-severe cellulite, providing smooth skin that you’ll be proud to show off.
If you’re dealing with stubborn cellulite, read on to learn how QWO holds the key to smoother skin.
The active ingredients in the QWO injectable are enzymes called collagenases, which target the structures beneath your skin that cause cellulite.
Cellulite is formed when fibrous collagen bands pull the skin toward the layer of subcutaneous fat below the surface. In women, these bands run perpendicular to the skin’s surface, while the bands in men run more horizontally. That is why women are far more prone to cellulite. Women also tend to carry more subcutaneous fat in certain areas, such as in their thighs and buttocks.
The collagenases in QWO are thought to reduce cellulite in these problematic areas by:
And we can accomplish all of this with only a few injections.
If you want to eliminate moderate-to-severe cellulite in your buttocks and thighs, expect a series of three QWO treatments for each target area. We can treat two areas at once during each session, and we space your treatments apart by 21 days in between each.
The injections take us only about 10 minutes to administer, then you’re free to get on with your day afterward. You may feel some soreness or develop bruising at the site of the injections, but these side effects resolve themselves quickly.
About two and a half months after you start your QWO treatments, you’ll start to see visible results. These results may continue as your fat settles into place and new collagen smooths your skin.
Since Texas can heat up quickly, we suggest that you start your QWO treatments over the winter so that you can greet spring with a bump-free booty.
