Answering Your FAQs About Cellulite Removal

Cellulite removal is a cosmetic procedure that aims to improve the appearance of cellulite on the skin. Cellulite is a very common occurrence that affects many people, and it can cause the skin to look dimpled or lumpy. Cellulite removal can help improve the appearance of the skin by reducing the appearance of dimples and lumps. If you’re considering cellulite removal treatments, then here’s what to know about them.

What is Cellulite?

Cellulite is a concern that affects most women and overweight people. Cellulite makes the skin look lumpy and dimpled, like an orange peel. It mainly occurs in the thighs, buttocks, and stomach areas but can happen anywhere on the body. This condition may be caused by genetics, hormones, and weight gain. Cellulite is not dangerous, but many people feel self-conscious about it and want to remove it.

How Does Cellulite Removal Work?

One way to reduce cellulite is through a treatment called QWO. QWO is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. QWO is a non-surgical treatment involving small injections of an enzyme which dissolves the collagen in the fibrous bands underneath the skin that pull the skin downward. Treatments involve injections into the dimples of cellulite using small needles. Three treatments are recommended every 21 days. Side effects include localized bruising, swelling and tenderness that resolve over time. Visible results may be seen in 10 weeks.

Are Cellulite Removal Results Permanent?

Most of the time, the results of cellulite removal are permanent. However, it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle after treatment to ensure the results last. If you gain weight after treatment, the cellulite may return. 

Also, once you stop having regular treatments, your cellulite might come back. Our experienced team can give you the best idea of what to expect.
