Endo Aesthetics (the makers of QWO) has announced the decision to cease the production and sale of QWO in light of concerns about prolonged and extent of bruising. Bruising has been a known side effect but over the course of the past year Endo was unable to resolve the concerns around bruising to their satisfaction. QWO remains an FDA-approved product which means the safety and efficacy of the product remains intact although the treatment is no longer offered at BodyLase.
Cellulite is almost universal, especially in women. In fact, nine out of 10 women will experience cellulite at some point in their life. To boost self-confidence, you may want to find a solution to reduce the dimpling and puckering associated with cellulite.
BodyLase offers QWO®, the only non-surgical cellulite treatment approved by the FDA. This treatment goes to work quickly, dissolving the fibrous bands that cause skin puckering/dimpling and improving the appearance of your skin. A minimum of three treatments are recommended to provide the best results. We are pleased to provide QWO at both our Raleigh, NC and Cary, NC BodyLase® spas.
What Is QWO Cellulite Treatment?
While diet and exercise are essential for weight loss, getting rid of cellulite is an entirely different issue. The dimpled skin that develops due to this problem can be tricky to deal with. The QWO injectable cellulite treatment is the first FDA-approved injectable to address moderate-to-severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. QWO injectable treatments are composed of clostridium histolyticum-aaes, a compound that has been shown to significantly improve the appearance of cellulite. Best of all, this treatment is well-tolerated and requires little, if any, downtime after injection.
How Does QWO Work?
If you’ve tried improving your diet and exercise but still struggle with embarrassing cellulite on your buttocks, you’re not alone. Studies show that as much as 90% of adult women experience some degree of cellulite in their lower body, regardless of their age, race, and weight. When QWO is injected into the problem area, it goes to work by dissolving fibrous septae that are drawing the skin down to the deeper tissue. As the septae is dissolved, a de-tethering effect begins, allowing the skin to float up and away from the deeper tissues and have a much smoother appearance.
What Can I Expect From the Results?
There has never been a treatment to actually address the cause of cellulite, until now. For years, we have tried products and treatments that were meant to simply improve the appearance of cellulite, but now we can permanently eliminate it in the treated area. QWO is designed to be administered in three treatment sessions, spaced 21 days apart. This treatment’s most common side effects are bruising, soreness, and warmth in the treatment area.
