Are you getting ready for your summer trip and don’t know whether to pack your favorite white shorts? Do you have some cellulite and want to know how to get rid of it? Well, don’t worry; you are not alone. Most of us have been in a similar situation. We are all looking for a quick and easy way to reduce cellulite, just in time for a specific day or event.
The truth is, you can reduce it, but you will mostly like need some help and will take more than a week. 80-90% of women will experience cellulite, regardless of their age and lifestyle habits. Which means that healthy habits and workouts alone do not do much to reduce cellulite. We know that sounds a bit discouraging, but good news is that there is a new solution that will help you reduce cellulite. Before we dive in to the ‘how’, we must first understand what is cellulite.
What Is Cellulite?
Contrary to popular belief, cellulite isn’t fat. It is not caused by what you eat, how much you eat, or lack of exercise. Three factors contribute to the dimpling of skin. As we age, our skin thins and the laxity of the skin changes. As a result of the skin thinning, the fat cells in our body (most commonly in the buttocks and thigh area) enlarge and push against the skin. The fibrous bands under the skin then thicken, cause tension, and create the dimpling on the skin known as cellulite.
How do I Reduce Cellulite?
Truth is, you can’t completely eliminate cellulite. But you can drastically decrease the appearance. This is probably not what you wanted to hear, but let’s face it: minimal cellulite is better than severe cellulite. Everyone’s cellulite is unique and each person can vary in degree of cellulite. That means anyone can benefit from cellulite reduction regardless of the severity. Here at Beauty Lounge Med Spa, we offer a new treatment that can help reduce cellulite.
Introducing Qwo, injectable for Cellulite
Qwo is the first FDA approved injectable to reduce cellulite. It has been studied in more patients than any other treatments, with over 1,800 participating patients. Qwo can be used to treat cellulite in both the buttock and thighs. It is injected directly where the dimple is formed. This procedure is painless and can take as little as 10 minutes to complete. There are a total of three treatments, three weeks apart. So you’ll see improvement after each treatment and final results in as little as 10 weeks.
How does Qwo reduce cellulite?
Qwo is injected into the cellulite dimples on the buttocks and or thighs. After it is injected, it releases the fibrous bands that are under the skin. It then allows the fat cells pushing against the skin to redistribute, and as a result it stimulates the growth of new collagen.
What can I expect after each treatment?
After each treatment you should expect bruising in the area treated. The intensity of bruising varies from person to person. The bruising may look a bit scary but it nothing to worry about! This is part of the process and bruising is good. We want bruising because that means it is working just the way we need it to. After two weeks, the bruising will subside and your skin will go back to looking its usual color but with little-to-no dimpling.
Why Qwo may be the right treatment for you
If you have mild to severe dimpling and struggle with the appearance of cellulite, Qwo may be the right treatment for you. This treatment targets the area of concern and the results are spectacular.
