Eliminating cellulite is difficult and may even seem impossible. Regardless of your exercise regimen and dieting, you may have a hard time getting rid of unwanted cellulite, something that affects 9 out of 10 women at some point in their lives. Topical creams can reduce it temporarily, but they’re often ineffective in the long run. Until recently, the best way to reduce or eliminate cellulite was through complex surgical procedures.
However, the FDA has just approved one of the world’s first and most effective injectable treatments for cellulite — Endo Aesthetics’ Qwo™. With Qwo, you can treat moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks without complex surgeries and downtime. Dr. Grover now provides this game-changing and revolutionary injectable treatment to reduce or eliminate your cellulite with optimal and natural-looking results.
Qwo, also known as collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes, is the world’s first FDA-approved injectable treatment for moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks. Qwo contains collagen-degrading enzymes that dissolve the fibrous bands connecting skin to muscle. These fibrous bands (septae) are seen as the root cause of cellulite because they pull your skin down, leading to the visible bulging of fat tissues. By dissolving the septae, Qwo safely smoothes skin tissue and eliminates cellulite.
Patients will typically require up to 3 treatments at 21-day intervals for optimal results. Based on clinical research, the treatment results are impressive, and last for over a year. However, it’s worth noting that this procedure is only suitable for cellulite — not for skin laxity, which is often misconstrued as cellulite. Qwo can only treat cellulite divots caused by septae, the fibrous bands connecting skin to muscle.
During the consultation, our expert resident aesthetician examines your skin, determines if you have moderate to severe cellulite, discusses your cosmetic goals, and curates the ideal treatment plan. The Qwo treatment must be finely-calibrated to address your specific concerns and cellulite presence.
After the examination, she will mark the treatment areas with a pen and then inject Qwo into the targeted regions. The treatment is quick, simple, and painless, and there’s no need for anesthesia. Since your buttocks have more fat than your face, the injection will hurt a lot less than Botox or most other injectables.
Qwo is a quick and painless procedure, concluding within 30 minutes with no downtime. You can resume all of your daily activities immediately after the injections. You should expect bruising for at least two weeks — the severity of the bruising depending on the number of dimples injected. If you experience any soreness, you should avoid vigorous activities for a day or two. For optimal long-term results, you’ll need to repeat the injections approximately 3 times, each treatment session being done at 21-day intervals.
