If you are concerned or bothered by cellulite, we have two pieces of news. The first is that you belong to the group made up of almost 90% of women who have this condition; and the second and better, is that the FDA approved the use of QWO, an injectable treatment to eliminate the hated orange peel skin.
This treatment involves the enzymes in QWO, called collagenases, being injected directly into the affected area, redistributing fat cells and stimulating the growth of new collagen. The procedure is non-surgical and consists of up to 12 injections per area that are administered 21 days apart in three visits.
We spoke with Dr. Sadyk Fayz, an expert in non-invasive aesthetic procedures, anti-aging and intimate aesthetic treatments and one of the pioneers in using this technique, who performs it from his offices at Beso Aesthetics in NYC (https://besoaesthetics.com/ ) to explain everything about it.
What is the most relevant of this treatment?
No matter how many cellulite creams and scrubs you use on a daily basis, you really can’t make your dimples disappear at home. You can temporarily smooth and firm your skin with the right ingredients, but the best long-term solution is in-office treatment with a licensed, board-certified medical professional.
Hence the relevance of QWO injections, which now give women the opportunity to treat the root cause of cellulite on the buttocks.
What are the most common side effects?
QWO is widely considered a safe and effective treatment. It should be noted that it has the potential to cause mild, temporary side effects that do not affect the final result, such as redness, swelling, bruising, itching, areas of hardness and heat at the treated site. In rare cases, QWO can cause more serious complications, including an allergic reaction.
When we can see the resultes?
Most women start to see an improvement within three weeks, but it can take up to ten weeks for the results to be fully noticed. During this time, adopting a healthy and active lifestyle can help improve results.
It is painful?
It is normal to have bruises in the treated areas, especially after the first treatment session, and they may also feel sore. You may feel some swelling or hard areas under the skin; Unlike bruises, these tend to resolve relatively quickly.
You may also experience minor bleeding, tingling, numbness, tenderness, and itching in the treated areas.
How do I know if I am suitable for treatment?
The ideal candidates are adult women who have moderate to severe cases of cellulite.
Prior to receiving QWO, patients should disclose any medical conditions, including an allergic reaction to a QWO injection in the past, bleeding problems, pregnant or planning to become pregnant, breastfeeding or planning to breastfeed.
It is important that people specify the types of medications they are taking, especially if there are any that prevent blood clotting or those that are available over the counter such as vitamins.
