90 percent of women have cellulite, the stubborn dimples in the skin that are almost impossible to reduce with diet and exercise. If you’ve tried to get rid of the problem on your own with a variety of creams or other solutions, but have found the cellulite persists no matter what, then effective, injectable QWO might be the perfect treatment for you.  

What is QWO?

QWO cellulite treatment in Long Island is a highly advanced injectable that targets the source of cellulite. The reason creams and topical solutions don’t work is because the cause of cellulite comes from under the skin. Fibrous cords connect your skin to the muscle beneath. These cords run through a layer of fat cells, and as the skin thins or fat cells expand, the cords begin to pull downward on the skin. The fat cells push upward and the cords pull down toward the muscle they are connected to, and this is what causes dimpled, uneven skin, or cellulite. 

QWO targets the fibrous cords, called septae, and is designed to dissolve them so that they release their hold on the skin.

Benefits of QWO Cellulite Treatment:

QWO is a popular treatment for cellulite reduction for a variety of reasons:

  • Safe, FDA-approved treatment
  • Non-surgical, non-invasive cellulite reduction
  • Short treatment
  • Long-lasting results
  • Smoother, stronger skin 
  • A more contoured, sculpted figure
  • A boost in confidence 

What happens during a QWO procedure?

Before QWO is injected, you will be asked to stand with your feet apart and with your body fully relaxed. This shows the cellulite dimples that can be selected for treatment. These dimples will be marked with a dot and circled on your skin. A maximum of 6-12 dimples per buttock can be addressed during each treatment period with QWO.

You will be asked to lie face down, and then the QWO will be injected to dissolve the septae. Once the injection process is complete, you will remain lying down for another five minutes or so, which allows the treatment to take full effect in the buttocks. 

Your QWO treatment will take about fifteen minutes, and is not described as painful. After the treatment is complete, you will experience a sore feeling in the area for a few days. This can be compared to the feeling in your muscles after a strenuous workout. To complete your QWO treatment process, you will have two more treatments over the next month and a half.
