Cellulite is an embarrassing cosmetic issue that is impossible to resolve with diet and exercise, or even plastic surgery. At Baldone Reina Dermatology, we offer QWO®, and injectable cellulite treatment for men and women in Northshore, Covington, New Orleans, Mandeville, and surrounding areas of Louisiana.
What is QWO®?
QWO® is an injectable product that is recommended for moderate to severe cellulite. Unlike other excess fat on your body, cellulite is a combination of fat and connective tissue. Fat cells poke through weak connective tissue, giving cellulite its distinctive dimpled appearance. QWO® contains collagenases that relax connective tissue, remodel fat cells, and stimulate collagen development. By targeting cellulite from three angles, QWO® injections give the treatment area a smoother appearance.
How Much Does QWO® Cost?
We recommend that you schedule a personal consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists to learn more about QWO® injections at Baldone Reina Dermatology. During the appointment, we evaluate the area to determine if the problem is cellulite. If you are a good candidate for QWO® injections, we discuss the details of the procedure and expected outcomes, as well as the cost of treatment.
What is the QWO® Treatment Like?
QWO® injections are made with a thin needle into the dimples of your cellulite. A series of injections is needed to produce a consistent, smooth appearance. You may need injections in one or two areas, and we may recommend additional QWO® injections three weeks after the initial treatment. For most patients, each series of injections takes about 10 minutes.
What is the Recovery Period Like Following QWO®?
You may have some minor symptoms after your QWO® treatment, such as localized swelling, discomfort, swelling, and itching. These symptoms are similar to having other types of dermal fillers and injectables, and they may last up to three weeks.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from QWO®?
In clinical studies, patients saw a noticeable difference in the treatment area after 10 weeks. The studies are based on women who received a series of three treatments given at three-week intervals. The results of QWO® injections are considered permanent, although the longevity varies. Living a healthy lifestyle that includes proper nutrition and exercise may help to preserve the results of your QWO® injections.
