Do you struggle with stubborn fat around your thighs? If so, you may have noticed the appearance of cellulite as well. While diet and exercise are essential for weight loss, getting rid of cellulite is more of a cosmetic issue. Many turn to over-the-counter options and even massages claim to do wonders to improve your skin. However, a lot of these options tend to yield less than stellar results. If you’re struggling with cellulite and want a solution, our team at Behr Laser & Skin Care Center can help. We’re proud to be the first in Fresno to offer the amazing Qwo® injectable cellulite treatment.REQUEST APPOINTMENT
What is Qwo®?
The Qwo® injectable cellulite treatment is the first FDA-approved injectable to address moderate-to-severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. Qwo® is composed of clostridium histolyticum-aaes, a compound that has been shown to significantly improve the appearance of cellulite. Best of all, the treatment is generally well-tolerated and requires little, if any, downtime post-injection.
How Does The Qwo® Injectable Cellulite Treatment Work?
When injected into the dimpled areas of cellulite, Qwo® goes to work by dissolving fibrous septae that are drawing the skin down to the deeper tissue. As the fibrous septae is dissolved, a tethering effect begins, allowing the skin to float up away from the deeper tissues and have a much smoother appearance.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
During your consultation, we will evaluate you and develop a personalized treatment plan, which will include the number of treatments recommended for your skin. We offer Qwo® in three different packages: Mini, Mild, and Moderate. Each treatment visit may include up to two treatment areas. Qwo® injections will be given 21 days apart for three treatment visits.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Early study data shows that the improvements achieved through the Qwo® injectable cellulite treatment last for at least a year. The most common side effects of Qwo® include injection site bruising, pain, areas of hardness, itching, redness, discoloration, swelling, and warmth in the treatment area.
Some serious side effects may include allergic (hypersensitivity) reactions, including anaphylaxis.
