What are Qwo® Cellulite Treatments?

Cellulite is a highly common concern for people of all ages. Anyone can suffer from this, and it is a perfectly natural thing to experience. If anything, it is rarer to not have cellulite than to have it! While you shouldn’t feel embarrassed by it, we understand that it can cause you some self-confidence issues. As such, the team at Manhattan Aesthetics has a treatment option that targets cellulite and can provide very impressive results.

What Causes Cellulite?

Under the surface of your skin, there are fibrous bands of collagen called septae. These bands run vertically between the surface layer of your skin and the tissues beneath. When septae are at their optimal length, the skin stays taught and tight. However, when they start to shrink or aren’t long enough, the skin gets pulled down. This creates a dimpled effect, which is further accentuated by the fat cells in this area pushing out between the fibrous septae bands. As a result, you are left with cellulite. 

Septae are likely to shorten when there is a build-up of fat under the skin. This is why many overweight people suffer from cellulite, but it could also be down to your body having a natural predisposition to retain fat in your thighs or buttocks – which are where cellulite is most likely to be found.

Introducing Qwo® Cellulite Treatments

The biggest issue with cellulite is that the fat pushing up to the skin isn’t dietary, so it can’t be reduced through exercise and dieting. Thankfully, we offer Qwo® cellulite treatments as a way of tackling this problem. This is a non-surgical treatment that uses injections to help reduce the appearance of cellulite. After a few treatments, you should see noticeable results that will last for a long time and help you feel so much more confident.

How Does Qwo® Work to Reduce Cellulite?

The science behind Qwo® is what makes it such a revolutionary treatment. You are injected with collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes, which is a combination of two collagenase enzymes that are naturally found in your body. These enzymes are used to target the fibrous bands of septae, breaking them down and releasing the skin from them. 

In turn, this stops the skin from being pulled too tight and creating the quilted cellulite effect. It lets the skin relax back to its normal state, smoothing it out and stopping the fat from being pushed through. Depending on the severity of your cellulite, multiple treatments may be needed over an extended period. 

Am I a Candidate for Qwo® Cellulite Treatments?

The good news is that Qwo® has been tested and approved for use on people of all ethnicities and skin types. Effectively, if you suffer from cellulite and want to see results that can last for years, you could be a candidate for this treatment. It is seen as a far more effective alternative to all the topical creams and gels out there, and you can enjoy great results without needing any surgery or downtime after each treatment.
