QWO® is the newest treatment to come to Advanced Dermatology; for the first time, we can reduce cellulite on the buttocks!
QWO® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for the treatment of moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. Three things cause cellulite’s signature dimples: 1) the skin thins over time and 2) fat cells enlarge and push against the skin 3) the fibrous bands under the skin’s surface thicken and cause tension as they are tethered to the deep connective tissue, like a mattress button.
It is important to recognize true cellulite as opposed to skin sagging causing divots in the skin. True cellulite buckles in the middle when you pinch the edges and stays indented when you pull up the skin above the dimples. QWO® can only treat cellulite, not skin sagging (although we have other treatments for that). If you are not sure which you have (and you can have both!), we can help you with the physical examination at your consultation visit.
