If you are looking for a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment to get rid of your cellulite, you may want to consider QWO. At 7 Seas Medical Spa, we offer QWO treatments to patients living in Evans, Columbia, Augusta, and the nearby areas of Georgia.
What is QWO?
QWO is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe cellulite on the thighs and buttocks of adult men and women. Unlike other traditional cellulite treatments, QWO does not use any cutting, scarring, or anesthesia. Rather, QWO simply requires just three non-surgical and minimally invasive injectable treatments spaced 21 days apart. Each QWO treatment takes just about 10 minutes to complete. In addition to seeing a reduction in the appearance of your cellulite, QWO stimulates collagen production over time to help you get smoother, healthier-looking skin.
How Much Does QWO Cost?
The cost of your QWO treatments will depend on a variety of factors including the extent of treatment needed to produce your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Austin will assess your treatment goals in order to develop a personalized treatment plan. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the full cost of treatment. For your convenience, we accept many forms of payment and also offer flexible financing options through CareCredit®, PatientFi – Click here to apply and Prosper® Healthcare Lending.
How Does QWO Work?
QWO is formulated with a special type of enzyme called collagenase, which triggers three different steps to help smooth away the appearance of cellulite on the buttocks and thighs:
- QWO’s collagenase enzymes release the fibrous bands of connective tissue that contribute to the “puckering” effect cellulite has on the skin.
- These enzymes then redistribute the fat cells that have gathered around the fibrous bands to smooth away lumps or bumps that may remain on the skin’s surface.
- Finally, QWO stimulates the growth of new collagen to smooth away uneven texture and provide you with the smooth, beautiful skin you desire.
Each QWO injectable treatment takes just 10 minutes to complete, after which time patients are able to resume their normal daily activities including work. Some patients are able to start seeing their results within just three days of their final treatment.
Are There Any Side Effects From QWO?
Immediately following your QWO treatment, you may notice mild swelling, tenderness, and bruising around your treated areas. This is normal and typically resolves on its own within a week or two of each QWO treatment. Patients may also notice some redness, warmth, and discoloration around their treatment areas. Less common side effects may include an allergic reaction to the prescription medication itself including hypersensitivity or anaphylaxis. It’s important to talk to Dr. Troy Austin about your concerns before scheduling your QWO treatment.
How Will My Skin Look After QWO?
QWO’s active ingredients word to reduce the puckering and lumpy appearance of cellulite on the buttocks and thighs by breaking down bands of connective tissue underneath the skin and stimulating collagen production for the long term. Patients who receive QWO treatments find their skin is smoother and healthier-looking than ever before. While some results may be visible as early as three days following your final QWO treatment, patients are typically able to see the full results of QWO within just 10 weeks of starting treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate for QWO?
If you’re looking for a non-surgical treatment to reduce the appearance of your moderate to severe cellulite, QWO may be right for you. Ideal candidates for QWO are in good general health and have realistic expectations of their results. If you currently take any blood-thinning medications, we encourage you to talk to Dr. Austin before starting your QWO treatments. We encourage all of our patients to schedule a private consultation with Dr. Austin to find out if QWO is a good option for them.
