Frustrating stubborn cellulite can be addressed with the help of QWO in Orlando. When fat gets trapped and constricted in the dermal layer of your skin, it results in cellulite’s dimpled appearance. Almost 90% of women have this condition. QWO injections are specially formulated to target the collagen fibers that constrict fat cells.

What is cellulite?
Cellulite is a localized alteration in the contour of the skin that has been reported in approximately 90% of adult women of all races and ethnicities.
What causes cellulite?
Over time, three completely normal things can happen. Fat cells get larger, skin gets thinner and a little looser and the fibrous bands under the skin’s surface get thicker, leading to a dimpled appearance.
Am I an ideal candidate?
Ideal candidates for QWO are patients with visible cellulite in the buttocks or thighs. It is important to be in good overall health. If you have a known allergy to collagenase or other QWO ingredients, you may not be recommended for this treatment. Patients who have an active infection in the treatment areas are also advised to seek other options.
Pregnant or breastfeeding women should inform Dr. Brian Joseph during their consultation in order to learn whether they are compatible for QWO treatments.
Your consultation for QWO injections is a crucial part of your treatment. A physical examination will be performed on your target areas. You will be asked about your medical history to evaluate whether there are any contraindications that could affect your results and healing. An optimal treatment plan will be developed specifically to address your concerns.
How does QWO work?
Enzymes called collagenases target the structural causes under the skin, where cellulite starts. It’s thought that QWO works by releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen. How QWO works in moderate to severe cellulite is not fully understood.
The QWO procedure
The QWO procedure is straightforward and relatively quick. The clear odorless QWO substance is prepared in syringes. These are then injected into the dimpled skin strategically and precisely. Each treatment can involve up to twelve injections in one target area (one buttock).
How many treatments will I need?
Each treatment visit may include up to two treatment areas. QWO injections will be given three weeks apart for a total of three treatment visits.
There is no significant downtime or recovery period needed after QWO treatments. Swelling and mild discomfort at the injection sites may be experienced in the first few days. Bruising can last for a few weeks following your treatment. You are able to resume your normal routines the day after your injections.
How much does QWO cost?
The cost of QWO injections depends on the customized treatment approach developed during the consultation. The overall price may be impacted by the number of injections required and the total number of sessions needed to achieve the desired results.
