What is cellulite?

If you have noticed dimpled skin in the buttocks and you’re not able to get rid of it through dieting and exercise, then you may be quite familiar with cellulite. Cellulite forms when the fibrous bands connecting the underlying muscles with the top skin layers thicken and get pulled taut, causing fat pockets to appear at the surface. QWO is the first injectable on the market to treat this condition non-surgically.

What is QWO and how does it work?

The significant ingredients in QWO are collagenase enzymes that target and break down the collagen-rich fibrous bands responsible for cellulite formation. After the bands, also known as fibrous septae, are structurally decimated, the fat cells are redistributed and new collagen growth is stimulated. The end result is smoother, firmer skin that has a naturally radiant glow. QWO treatment takes less than 20 minutes and results become visible within about 10 weeks.

What are the benefits of QWO?

  • Painless, non-invasive and non-surgical
  • No anesthesia, incisions or downtime
  • FDA-approved to reduce cellulite in the buttocks
  • Helps to slim, sculpt and reshape the lower torso
  • Provides smoother, firmer skin
  • Short treatment time
  • Enhanced wardrobe options
  • Increased satisfaction with one’s image

Who makes a good candidate for QWO injections?

QWO is indicated for those clients who struggle with moderate to severe cellulite dimpling in the buttocks. Typically these candidates have attempted to improve their skin tone through dieting and exercise but have obtained little relief using these methods. Clients with skin laxity may have better results with a skin tightening treatment rather than QWO. Dr. Parker and his team will assess your unique situation during your private Las Vegas consultation.
