3 THINGS THAT CAUSE Cellulite AKA "Dimples!"

-Skin: Over time, skin things

10 women.

Cellulite is a concern that affects women of all sizes and shapes. The cottage cheese or orange peel effect is not a significant medical concern, but it can substantially impact a woman’s self-confidence and self-esteem. If you are avoiding shorts or bathing suits because of cellulite, help is available at Body Tonic Med Spa.

 

If cellulite is affecting your appearance, you are not alone. It is a widespread issue that affects up to 90% of women at some point in their lives, but there are few effective, long-lasting treatments available.

 

WHAT IS QWO?
 

The first and only FDA-approved injectable for cellulite! It is a prescription medicine used to treat moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. Visible results may be achieve in 10 weeks. Women received 3 treatments, 21 days apart and injections take as little as 15 minutes.

CELLULITE ISN’T YOUR FAULT

Cellulite is just part of our biology. Most women will have cellulite in their lifetime – about 9 out of 10 women, in fact. Unfortunately, no matter how much you work out, eat healthy, or wish it away — cellulite won’t budge unless you get to the source.  You should always maintain your healthy habits, but if you really want to reduce cellulite, you need to understand what’s behind it.

HERE’S WHAT CONTRIBUTES TO CELLULITE:

There are 3 things that together cause those signature dimples. Let’s take a look under the surface of the skin.

  • Skin – Over time, skin things

  • Fat – Fat cells enlarge and push against the skin

  • Fibrous Bands – The fibrous bands under the skin thicken and cause tension

QWO WAS PUT TO THE TEST

Some women and their aesthetic injectors both agreed they noticed less dimpling after treatment with QWO. Results were assessed 28 days after the 3rd treatment.  QWO has been studied in more patients than any other cellulite treatment, with over 1,800 women participating.

A CUTTING EDGE TREATMENT

After you and your aesthetic injector discuss your treatment and what to expect, they will inject QWO into your cellulite dimples. QWO injections take 15 minutes or less. In clinical trials, women required no post-treatment downtime.

QWO ENZYMES AT WORK

Enzymatic Subcision and Remodeling (ESR) describes the process whereby enzymes degrade or dissolve the collagen component of fibrous septae, releasing the bands causing cellulite. QWO is an injectable formulation of two enzymes that degrade the fibrous septae. The enzyme is called collagenase, which is derived from a bacterium called Clostridium Histolyticum (CCH or QWO). QWO is the injectable formulations of two enzymes that degrade Type 1 and Type 3 collagen in specific tissues to create smoother skin.

In addition to releasing the bands, these enzymes stimulate the production of newer collagen molecules that improve the appearance of the skin in a process called neocollagenesis.

 

QWO SIDE EFFECTS

Post-treatment bruising is the primary side effect of QWO. Pain and swelling tend to be minimum. Bruising can be decreased with treatments using tranexamic acid (TXA) formulations, Bromolin, or Arnica.
