Why does cellulite form?

Cellulite refers to the dimpled flesh that is found on the thighs, buttocks, hips and abdomen. Cellulite is thought to occur when fat accumulates in between fibrous connective cords that are located just underneath the skin. From genetics to hormonal changes to lifestyle problems, a variety of causes can increase the severity of your cellulite.

How does the QWO Cellulite Treatment work?

The QWO Cellulite Treatment at St. George Med Spa is designed to help you get rid of unsightly cellulite from your body. The procedure uses a special injectable to reduce the appearance of cellulite in a completely safe and non-invasive manner. The QWO Cellulite Treatment can help you eliminate cellulite that is hard to get rid of with exercise and dieting alone.

Collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes (QWO), is an injectable solution that is made using the combination of two very important and powerful collagen enzymes that are produced naturally in the body. When this formulation enters the skin, it starts to break down the collagen in the cellulite, thereby breaking up the fibrous bands that make up the collagen. Simultaneously, any fat cells present will be redistributed across the treatment region and the skin cells will be stimulated to produce fresh collagen. This firms up your skin and prevents sagging post-treatment. After a couple of weeks, you will start to see how smooth your skin looks due to the absence of collagen.

Because of the use of collagen enzymes in the QWO Cellulite Treatment, our dermatologists check if you are allergic to collagen or collagen-compounds before administering the treatment. If you are allergic or are pregnant or breastfeeding at the time of the procedure, we will recommend an alternative treatment where possible.

Where can you get this treatment?

Currently, the FDA has approved QWO Cellulite Treatment for adult women, specifically targeting the buttocks.

Is there any recovery time?

No, the QWO Cellulite Treatment does not have any specified recovery time. The injection site may feel tender and inflamed for a day or two. You may experience minor discomfort when sitting or lying down. Depending on the person, bruising can last 1 to 3 weeks. The bruising in the first treatment tends to be the worst, but bruising with each session is likely. Our experts will give you a detailed list of recovery Do’s and Don’ts. Be sure to follow them carefully to ensure your treatment recovery goes well.

Is the cellulite loss permanent?

While the QWO Cellulite Treatment does get rid of cellulite, this is not a permanent solution. It is recommended that you follow a proper diet and exercise regimen to ensure optimum results and lasting benefits from the treatment.
