At Beverly Hills Aesthetics in Los Angeles, we understand that cellulite is a common concern for many individuals. Cellulite affects approximately 80-90% of postpubertal females and is not exclusive to any particular body type or weight. Recognizing the desire for effective treatments, we are proud to offer Collagenase injections, popularly known as QWO, as a cutting-edge solution for cellulite improvement.
Cellulite appears as dimpled or lumpy skin, often described as having a cottage cheese or orange peel texture. It’s most commonly seen on the buttocks and thighs and is the result of fat deposits pushing through the connective tissue beneath the skin. Contrary to common belief, cellulite is not solely a result of overweight or obesity. It can affect individuals of all body types, due to factors like genetics, hormonal changes, and lifestyle.
Collagenase Injections: QWO for Cellulite Treatment
QWO, the first FDA-approved injectable treatment for moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women, is a revolutionary step in cosmetic dermatology. This injectable treatment specifically targets the structural cause under the skin, addressing the fibrous septae, which are the primary contributing factors to cellulite.
How Does QWO Work?
- Targeting Fibrous Septae: Cellulite is caused by fibrous bands (septae) that connect the skin to the underlying muscle. These bands can pull down the skin, trapping fat cells and leading to the dimpled appearance of cellulite. QWO works by dissolving these fibrous bands.
- Releasing Skin Dimpling: The active ingredient in QWO is enzymes called collagenases. These enzymes specifically target the types of collagen in the fibrous septae. By breaking down these collagen bands, QWO releases the tension and the dimpling effect, resulting in a smoother skin surface.
- Stimulating New Collagen: The process also stimulates the production of new collagen, which can contribute to improving the skin’s texture and elasticity over time.
The Cellulite Reduction Procedure & Recovery
QWO treatments are non-surgical and minimally invasive. The procedure involves a series of injections administered directly into the areas affected by cellulite. The number of sessions and injections per session can vary based on the individual’s needs and the severity of the cellulite.
Patients can expect minimal downtime with QWO treatments. While there may be some bruising or discomfort following the procedure, these side effects are generally short-lived. The results from QWO develop over time, with many patients seeing significant improvements within weeks after completing their treatment sessions.
