QWO Cellulite Treatment
Cellulite affects an estimated 90% of adult females of all races and ethnicities and often worsens with age and weight gain. Until now, the only available cellulite treatments have been invasive, requiring either incisions or laser treatment. Southeast Medspa is proud to be one out of ten providers found in North Carolina to offer the QWO service, the first FDA-approved cosmetic injectable to treat moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks.
QWO is injected directly into your cellulite dimples. The enzymes immediately go to work breaking down collagen types 1 and 3 to release the fibrous collagen bands (called “fibrous septae”) causing the dimpling, allowing fat cells to reposition themselves and making the skin appear smoother and more even. QWO also stimulates collagen production in the skin, rebuilding your collagen support network with thinner, smaller, more flexible septae that will prevent future dimpling.
Which areas is this procedure best for?
Although cellulite clinically presents on the buttocks, thighs, lower abdomen and arms. QWO is currently FDA-approved for treatment of the buttocks area in adult women.
Is Qwo painful?
No, you can expect to have a painless experience. Depending on your pain threshold, we may numb the area with a topical anesthetic to ensure your comfort.
How long does it last?
QWO requires a total of three sessions, spaced 21 days apart for a lasting result of 12 months or more.
