QWO Cellulite Treatment Q & A

What is QWO cellulite treatment?

QWO cellulite treatment is an FDA-approved injection that reduces moderate-to-severe cellulite in women’s buttocks. Anyone can develop cellulite, especially women, even if they maintain a healthy weight and exercise regularly. QWO produces highly effective results without downtime.

What is cellulite?

Cellulite is a common skin condition that causes dimpled, lumpy flesh. It usually appears in women’s hips, thighs, buttocks, or abdomen. Cellulite is often difficult to eliminate, as it can linger despite adopting healthy habits and maintaining an ideal body weight.

What are the risk factors for cellulite?

The main risk factors for developing cellulite are being a woman and having a family history of cellulite. Aging also boosts your risk of having cellulite, as well as weight gain, physical inactivity, and pregnancy.

Is QWO cellulite treatment right for me?

If you’re a woman and have undesirable cellulite in your buttocks, QWO cellulite treatment is likely the solution for you. However, it isn’t a weight loss treatment, so you should be at or near an ideal body weight prior to the procedure.

The team at Afzal Clinics checks your vital signs, reviews your medical history and desired outcome, and completes an exam before personalizing your treatment plan.

What happens during QWO cellulite treatment?

During QWO cellulite treatment, the experts at Afzal Clinics can first numb the treatment area to ensure you avoid discomfort. They inject QWO into targeted areas beneath the skin in your buttocks. The injections take as little as 10 minutes to complete, and there’s no downtime afterward.

What should I expect after QWO cellulite treatment?

After QWO cellulite treatment, you can resume a normal routine immediately, but you can expect temporary redness, warmth, swelling, tenderness, and bruising. As tissues begin to heal, you will notice less cellulite and smoother skin, as well as better body contours. 

Visible results usually appear after 10 weeks, and you may need a series of three treatments spaced about 21 days apart to achieve optimal results.
