If you have cellulite on your legs or buttocks, you are not alone. In fact, it is estimated that 9 out of 10 women have cellulite, and it affects women of all weights, body types, and fitness levels. Even though this dimpling and “cottage cheese”-like appearance of the skin is common, it doesn’t mean you have to live with the condition! Previously, cellulite treatments were invasive and expensive, but the team at Seriously Skin in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, is excited to offer a revolutionary new treatment option for women who have cellulite on their buttocks: QWO® injections.
What causes cellulite?
Everyone has at least some fat beneath the surface of their skin. In people with cellulite, fibrous bands called “fibrous septae” also underlie the skin and become tethered to it, creating a web structure that only allows fat to push up against the skin and leading to a dimpled appearance on the surface.
About QWO® cellulite treatment
QWO® is the only injectable cellulite treatment approved by the FDA for treating moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of women aged 18 and older. It contains two enzymes that naturally occur in the body, which work to break down and dissolve the fibrous septae bands beneath the skin that contribute to the appearance of cellulite. The end result is smoother skin with a more uniform appearance. We will walk through the injection process with you during your consultation so you know what to expect during and after your treatment. The injections only take about ten minutes or less and are performed with a small needle.
