Cellulite is a common dermatologic condition that affects approximately 85% of adult women. It is characterized by dimpling of the skin, often described as an “orange peel” or “cottage cheese” appearance. Many women may find themselves bothered by the appearance of cellulite and often approach the team at Georgia Dermatology Partners to learn more about the treatment options available.
What is QWO®, and how does it work?
QWO® is a new injectable treatment for moderate to severe cellulite in adult women. QWO® is the first and only injectable approved by the FDA for cellulite. It is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment that improves the appearance of cellulite in the buttocks with just three treatments given several weeks apart. Each treatment session takes approximately 30 minutes.
What can I expect from my QWO® treatment sessions at Georgia Dermatology Partners?
During each treatment session, QWO® is injected into the areas of your buttock with moderate to severe cellulite. The injection sites are determined based on a thorough assessment of your buttock area. A total of 36 injections are given across three treatment sessions, with each injection being placed just below the skin’s surface in the affected areas. QWO® works by breaking down the structure of the fatty tissue that contributes to cellulite. This action helps to release the dimpling appearance of the skin and provides a smoother, more toned appearance to the treated area.
Does QWO® provide results?
QWO® is an effective treatment for improving the appearance of cellulite in the buttocks. In clinical studies, patients saw a significant improvement in their cellulite after just three treatments with QWO®. Patients also reported high levels of satisfaction with their results, and many said they would recommend QWO® to a friend. If you are thinking about treatment for your cellulite, QWO® may be a good option for you.
