First thing’s first. Pretty much everybody on the planet has cellulite in some way, shape, or form. And, whilst some of us experience it in greater quantities or depths than others. It’s important to always remember that it’s totally natural and nothing we should be ashamed of.
This doesn’t mean that if and when we can reduce the appearance of cellulite we won’t take the opportunity. Any beauty treatment that makes you feel genuinely good about yourself and gives you confidence can be a great thing! So, if this is something you’ve been hoping to do. Qwo™ could be exactly what you’ve been searching for all these years.
What is it? How does it work? Is it safe? We’re about to answer all of those questions and more…
What is Qwo™?
Now, we’re guessing the first question you’ll want to ask is, ‘umm, what is Qwo™?’. We hear you, if this is your first introduction to this brand-new cellulite treatment.
Put simply, Qwo is a new medicine that will prescribe to treat cellulite on the buttocks. We inject the medicine directly into the buttocks to smooth out the appearance of dimples and uneven skin texture resulting in a smoother, more youthful-looking skin surface.
Is Qwo Safe and FDA Approved?
Yes! You’ll be very happy to learn that Qwo is in fact the first-ever FDA-approved cellulite treatment designed to break down the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks.
How Does Qwo Work?
If you’re wondering how these FDA-approved injections to dissolve cellulite actually work, you’re not alone. After all, it practically sounds too good to be true! Well, we promise it isn’t…
Once Qwo will inject into the site of the cellulite, it releases collagenases. Collagenases are enzymes that are thought to target and remove cellulite in multiple ways.
Firstly, they can redistribute fat cells, thereby smoothing out the layer beneath the skin which. When left in its usual uneven state, can cause our skin to look bumpy and dimply.
Meanwhile, Qwo can also encourage the growth of new collagen. Collagen is a protein responsible for structural growth within the skin. It also aids the reproduction of new healthy skin cells meaning it can help reduce signs of aging and cellulite.
Finally, Qwo is believing to release the fibrous bands beneath the skin that are often a main cause of cellulite in the first place. Fibrous bands (called septae) can work as divides of a sort beneath the skin. They divide our fat layer into small pockets and so when that fat begins to push through, whilst the bands remain taught in place, you get dimples and bumps, otherwise know as cellulite.
Can Qwo Be Used To Treat Cellulite Anywhere?
Currently, Qwo has only been approved to treat cellulite on the buttocks. Therefore, it cannot yet be used to treat cellulite on the thighs or anywhere else on the body.
How Many Treatments Will I Need To See Results?
Much like other beauty treatments, the amount of Qwo sessions you’ll need will depend on the severity of your cellulite as well as how much you have and the areas you want to be rid of. That said, most patients has recommendation a plan that includes three visits. For some, they will need only one treatment per visit, others may require two treatments per visit if their cellulite is a little more severe.
When it comes to when you’ll have each of these treatments, Qwo injections are booked 21 days apart for best results. This break in between also gives your skin adequate time to heal in-between visits.
When Will I Start To See Results?
Results are, of course, individual to each person. However, most can see results in only three weeks following their first treatment. These results will then continue to improve with best results becoming visible within ten weeks of finishing up your treatment plan.
How Long Do Results Last?
Unlike some other cellulite treatments that merely lessen the effects of cellulite for a week or so and then fade, the results from your Qwo injections will last 12 months. For many patients, these results will last even longer so you can be sure it’s a treatment worth investing in.
How Long Does The Treatment Take?
As beauty treatments go, Qwo is one of the faster appointments you can expect to have, especially when it comes to treating cellulite. Once the medical professional completing your treatment has marked out the areas on your skin to be injected, it usually takes only around ten minutes to complete one treatment.
Does Qwo Hurt?
Since the treatment involves injecting directly into the skin on your buttocks. There may be some mild discomfort whilst that happens. However, most do not describe the treatment as painful and it’s always good to bear in mind that this part only lasts only around ten minutes. Meanwhile, the results will likely last you well over a year. Knowing this is often all you need to get through that slight discomfort at your super-fast appointments!
Are There Any Side Effects?
Like the majority of injectables, it is possible to experience side effects from Qwo injections. Generally, most women will find they experience some bruising at the injection site and possible mild swelling afterward. Others may find they have areas of hardness, itching, redness, discoloration, or warmth, however, none of these are long-lasting will not consider serious side effects.
(Should you notice any unusual or serious side effects following your treatment such as hives, difficulty breathing, feeling faint, or a fast heartbeat, contact a medical professional so they can rule out any hypersensitive reactions such as anaphylaxis.)
What Are The Costs Involved?
Depending on the severity of your cellulite and how much your would like to see removed, the costs for your treatment will vary. Here at the Anushka Spa & Salon, a package of two sessions costs $1999. If you wish to have additional sessions, they will charge at the lower price of $850 per session!
