QWO is the first and only FDA approved injectable for the treatment of moderate to severe cellulite. QWO targets the fibrous connective cords that cause the dimpled appearance in your skin. When these cords are released, fat cells are redistributed and new collagen growth is stimulated.
Cellulite is a very common, harmless skin condition that causes lumpy, dimpled flesh on the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen. The condition is most prevalent in women. It involves fibrous connective cords that tether the skin to the underlying muscle, with the fat lying between. As fat cells accumulate, they push up against the skin, while the long, tough cords pull down. This creates an uneven surface or dimpling. Think of the buttons on your mattress. Hormonal factors play a large role in the development of cellulite, and genetics determine skin structure, skin texture and body type. Other factors, such as weight and muscle tone affect whether you have cellulite, though even very fit people can have it. QWO is now FDA approved to treat cellulite.
