Over 90% of women have or will have cellulite at some point in their lives. Cellulite is caused from fibrous bands tightly holding fat pockets together in the skin, creating a dimple effect. Despite this, cellulite isn’t fat or has anything to do with your diet or exercise. While it is healthy and not a health condition, many people seek ways to smooth out those lumps and dimples.
Luckily, the FDA has approved a new injection to combat cellulite: Collagenase Clostridium Histolyticum-aaes, better known as QWO, is the first FDA-approved treatment to remove cellulite in the buttocks area.
During treatment, QWO releases enzymes called collagenases. These enzymes break up those fibrous bands that hold your fat pockets together, relieving the surface’s dimpling and smoothing out your skin’s appearance. All while redistributing fat cells and promoting new collagen growth.
QWO was designed to treat moderate to severe cellulite in adult women. The procedure is fast and injections take as little as 10 minutes. Women receive three treatments every 21 days.
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.
