QWO – Cellulite Injections
Austin PSI is proud to be one of the premier practices offering Qwo in Austin!
Losing those dimples on your thighs and buttocks is now possible with QWO cellulite injections! QWO, also known as collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes, is a ground-breaking FDA-approved injectable to treat those stubborn areas.
What Are QWO Cellulite Injections?
To date, there has been no permanent treatment for cellulite. However, this newly developed injectable is now available to smooth out dimpling on the buttocks and thighs.
QWO is the first minimally invasive injectable to target cellulite. According to clinical trials, it has the same mechanism as existing treatments that often require surgical intervention.
Cellulite is not the result of excessive skin laxity; instead, it is the result of pockets of fat under your skin. Bands of collagen, or septae, tighten as the fat gets deposited between your skin and muscle. This makes the fat seem to be encircled, giving rise to the appearance of “dimples.”
QWO contains two collagen-degrading enzymes that break down the septae, thus lessening the dimpling on your skin. It creates tangible results after several injections.
Am I a Good Candidate for QWO Cellulite Injections?
You can get QWO injections if you want to finally smooth out your cellulite. The majority of women have cellulite problems, whereas men typically do not, since their septae form differently.
Common areas where cellulite appear are your arms, thighs, buttocks, or tummy. If you want to reduce the appearance of these unsightly lumps, this treatment is recommended for you.
Your consultation will begin with the discussion of your concerns, expectations, and goals. Our expert injectors will ask you about your physical health, medical history and current medications (blood thinners are contraindicated with this procedure as it may cause additional bruising and bleeding) If you have ever had an allergic reaction to collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes, this is not an appropriate treatment for you. The risks are minimal and complications may not be severe, but these discussions will help our team to come up with the right treatment plan for you. It is important to our team that you are well informed and know what to expect.
Similar to most injectable procedures, your QWO cellulite injection treatment process will start with photographs, cleaning and marking the target areas, and then injecting using the best method for the area being treated. One session could require up to 12 injections and should not take more than 30 minutes.
Since the procedure is only minimally invasive, there is little to no downtime or recovery time required after your injections. Patients report bruising and swelling, that may last during the duration of the treatment. . There may also be development of nodules on the injection sites that will gradually soften and return to normal.. You may take Tylenol or Ibuprofen for any discomfort post-procedure.
According to trials, QWO reduces the dimpling appearance but will not eradicate cellulite completely.
How Much Do Cellulite Injections Cost?
During your initial consultation, our team will let you know about the total cost of your procedure. Because this is a cosmetic treatment, the price of QWO cellulite injections is not covered by health insurance providers.
