What Is QWO® Cellulite Treatment?

Cellulite is the dimpled skin that many women experience when fat collects in body parts, like the thighs or buttocks. It occurs because skin proteins over-constrict, binding the skin to the muscle beneath. Typically, cellulite is treated by breaking these proteins down, traditionally in rather invasive ways. Altogether You Med Spa offers a minimally invasive injection therapy for diminishing cellulite called QWO cellulite treatment. Provided by the talented José A. Ortiz, N.M.D., this procedure uses a special enzyme to break down cellulite deposits for our Phoenix, AZ area patients. Call us today to learn more about this treatment!

How Does QWO Cellulite Treatment Work?

Cellulite forms when extra pockets of fat collect under certain regions of the skin, like the buttocks and thighs. The protein collagen normally keeps skin taut and firm-looking, but too much fat collected in one place can distort the collagen fibers, causing them to constrict the skin and attach it to your muscles, leading to a dimpled appearance. QWO (the brand name for collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes) uses a special type of enzyme that breaks down collagen fibers, allowing the overly constricted skin to relax and reheal. This is less invasive than other cellulite treatments, which separate collagen fibers using heat from lasers or surgical incisions. QWO can cause anaphylactic reactions or bruising in some patients and can cause complications when used with anti-clotting medications, while pregnant, or when breastfeeding so be sure to speak to your doctor before receiving the procedure!

QWO cellulite treatment FAQs

How does cellulite form?

Cellulite is the result of fibrous connective tissue bands pulling down on the skin, which creates a dimpling effect with the overlying skin. People are more likely to develop cellulite if they are overweight or have a family history of cellulite. Altogether You Med Spa has found that the best way to improve cellulite is through QWO.

How much does cellulite reduction cost?

The cost of cellulite reduction varies depending on the areas of concern and how much treatment is required to produce results. Dr. Ortiz often works with patients on a budget and can provide information about pricing during your initial QWO consultation.
