How Do QWO Injections Work:
What Causes Cellulite?
The majority of people have or will have cellulite. It is a common misconception that cellulite is caused by fat. In fact, developing cellulite can happen regardless of diet & exercise. As we age our skin thins, fat cells under the skin can enlarge and push against the skin, and bands of fiber can thicken and pull down sections of the skin. Together the three factors can create dimpling in the skin.
What Does QWO Do?
As the first FDA-approved injectable for cellulite treatment in the buttocks, QWO works by breaking the fibrous bands that pull the skin down. Over the course of multiple treatments, this injection can help women see visible changes in cellulite around their buttocks and hips.
3 days prior to your treatment, it is recommended to avoid the following to decrease the risk of bruising after treatment:
o Alcoholic beverages
o Any blood thinning medications or supplements that increase the chances of blood thinning
o One week prior to treatment avoid taking: Advil, Ibuprofen, Aspirin, Excedrin, Motrin or any NSAID.
o One week Prior avoid: Herbal supplements such as Gingko biloba, Ginseng, Flax oil, Cod liver oil, Fish oil, Omega 3’s or other essential fatty acids, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, and Garlic
o Please arrive to your appointment with the treatment area clean and free of any product
