Cellulite is a very common skin condition that happens wherein the skin becomes dimpled around the thighs, hips, buttocks, and abdomen area. Cellulite can usually occur when the person gains weight, has a poor diet, has fluid retention, lacks physical activity, experiences hormonal imbalance, poor blood circulation in the skin, or simply just genetics.
While cellulite is not a medical issue, it may cause one to feel self-conscious when wearing certain pieces of clothing such as shorts, skirts, dresses, etc. Thankfully, there is now a treatment for that. The newest game-changer in the cosmetic industry today when it comes to cellulite treatment is QWO (collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes), coming soon in Spring 2021.
What is QWO?
QWO is a FDA approved injectable treatment for cellulite that has become a buzzword in the cosmetic industry. In fact, it is the first-ever injectable treatment to smooth moderate to severe cellulite. It contains two kinds of collagen-smoothening enzymes that aim to target septae or the fibrous bands that tug the skin down resulting in the formation of cellulite.
Anyone can get QWO treatment EXCEPT if:
- You are allergic to collagenase
- Have infection in the targeted area
- Have bleeding problem
- Pregnant, nursing, and planning to get pregnant or nurse
How does QWO work?
If you are planning to undergo the treatment, you will meet with Dr. Singh for a thorough consultation. During your consultation, you will be asked about your medical history and the medicines or supplements that you are currently taking, especially if it is for blood clots like antiplatelet and anticoagulant. Moreover, you have to inform us if you have allergy or any hypersensitivity as you might develop anaphylaxis as a side effect.
After the treatment, you may experience bruising, redness, swelling, and slight pain in the injection site. However, this is normal and it will go away after a few days. You can even continue with your day to day activities after the treatment
