Cellulite is discouraging because it is visible in both good and bad lighting. If you’ve tried different scrubs, DIY devices, and at-home treatments in an attempt to reduce the appearance of your cellulite but have been unsuccessful, we want to introduce you to something that will work. At Anazao MD in Steamboat Springs, CO, we offer FDA-Approved QWO Cellulite Injections. This is a treatment that will smooth textural irregularities, and in doing so, will give you your confidence back.
What Are QWO Injections for Cellulite?
QWO Cellulite Injections provide us with an innovative yet effective way to target and smooth your cellulite. These injections contain enzymes called collagenases, which work by loosening those fibrous bands in the deeper layers of the skin that cause cellulite.
Injections also give those fat cells freedom to redistribute and, at the same time, increases collagen production in the area. Once the fat cells are redistributed, those cellulite pockets will disappear, and the area will smooth out.
What Causes Cellulite?
For years, there have been varying opinions on what actually causes cellulite and whether it can be successfully eliminated. With advancements in technology and cosmetic innovations, the cause of cellulite is now clear, and effective treatment is available: QWO. Over 90% of women and 10% of men struggle with this imperfection. There are theories that pregnancy, hormonal changes, lifestyle factors, lack of exercise, and an unhealthy diet can all contribute to cellulite formation.
However, cellulite occurs when fibrous bands form and create pockets filled by fat cells, creating that dimpled, irregular texture. By addressing cellulite at its source, we can reduce its appearance. When it comes down to it, changes in the skin’s structure cause cellulite. As your skin gets thinner, the fibrous bands in the deeper layers get tighter, which forces those fat cells closer to the skin’s surface, creating a dimpled appearance.
What Areas Can It Treat?
This treatment is specifically designed to address and is FDA-Approved to treat cellulite on the buttocks of women. The buttocks are the most common locations for cellulite to appear, but this treatment will help reduce that cellulite long term.
What Happens During the Treatment Process?
Once we confirm that QWO Cellulite Injections are right for you, we will develop your treatment plan and schedule your treatment. When you arrive, we will situate you in one of our treatment rooms and prepare your skin for the session. Our specialist will inject this solution into the cellulite dimples buttocks.
The injectables are fitted with a very small needle, so you can expect the treatment process to be virtually painless. Treatments take approximately 10 minutes to complete, and you will be able to resume your normal daily activities once your treatment is over.
Will I Need More Than One Treatment?
Most patients require more than three treatments to achieve the best results. We will confirm if you are a candidate for QWO and then design your treatment plan. Sessions are scheduled with 21 days between each.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
Some patients notice results within three to four weeks of their treatment, but it typically takes eight weeks to experience your final outcome. Clinical studies have shown that women who underwent three QWO treatments with 21 days between each achieved visible results after ten weeks of their initial appointment. We can discuss what kind of results you can expect after evaluating your problem areas in person and confirming that this injectable is right for you.
