Keep reading to find all the answers to your questions about QWO, including what side effects are possible and how long they may last.

I hate my butt cellulite

If you are a woman who is frustrated or embarrassed by cellulite on your butt, you are far from alone. Countless women struggle with ripples, dimples, and bumpy skin due to cellulite, which is oftentimes unavoidable and can be virtually impossible to get rid of on your own. Most commonly, cellulite in women appears on the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks.

Will losing weight get rid of cellulite?

Unfortunately, weight loss alone is not always an effective way to reduce cellulite, and for some people, ripples and wrinkles actually become more noticeable with weight loss. By knowing more about the fundamental structural cause of cellulite, it is easier to understand why certain cellulite treatments are more effective than losing weight.

What causes cellulite?

Despite the popular belief that cellulite only affects people who are overweight, women of all shapes and sizes can develop cellulite. Some of the most common causes of cellulite include:

  • Genetics/heredity
  • Diet
  • Lifestyle
  • Smoking
  • Obesity

Technically speaking, the underlying cause of cellulite is a structural issue. Our bodies have a natural tethering system of fibrous septae that connect the various layers of muscle and tissue. When fat begins to bulge through the spaces between these fibers, patients may develop noticeable lumps or a cottage cheese-like texture beneath their skin. By releasing these tethers with cellulite reduction treatments, patients can achieve a smoother, more attractive look.

How does QWO work for cellulite?

QWO is one of the newest and most in-demand treatments for cellulite in Las Vegas, NV. Unlike other cellulite treatments, which often require incisions, heat energy, and a relatively lengthy recovery period, QWO offers a minimally invasive solution for cellulite with injections only. QWO injections work by enzymatically getting rid of the fibers responsible for cellulite ripples in the buttocks of women.

Are there any side effects after QWO?

QWO is considered an exceptionally safe and effective treatment for cellulite and offers the benefit of very few side effects and a short recovery period. In fact, with the exception of strenuous physical exercise, most women can resume their normal activities almost immediately after QWO injections. Some mild bruising, swelling, and redness may occur, but these symptoms are not typically disruptive and usually resolve on their own within just a few days.

How long does QWO last?

Following a recommended series of three QWO sessions, patients should begin to notice their results taking shape over the course of several weeks. For most women, QWO results last a minimum of one year before a repeat injection is needed, but they have the potential to last for many years.
