Here are some common queries many of our customers in Manhattan and Westchester have had before embarking on a QWO® treatment. If you have others, feel free to call our offices and we’ll be happy to address them for you.
What is cellulite?
Cellulite is a localized alteration (commonly referred to as a “dimple”) in the contour of the skin that has been reported in approximately 90% of adult women of all races and ethnicities.
Why don’t men typically develop cellulite?
Men have thicker skin than women do, and their collagen bands are oriented in a crisscross fashion, essentially eliminating the ability of the fat lobules to bulge through.
Can weight loss help to get rid of cellulite?
Weight loss might reduce the appearance of cellulite but won’t get rid of it since it doesn’t address the fibrous bands under the skin’s surface.
What is QWO?
QWO is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for the treatment of moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks and upper thighs of adult women.
How does QWO work?
Enzymes called collagenases target the structural causes under the skin, where cellulite starts. It’s thought that QWO works by releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen. How QWO works in moderate to severe cellulite is not fully understood.
How many treatments will I need?
Each treatment visit may include up to two treatment areas. QWO injections will be given three weeks apart for a total of three treatment visits.
Are there side effects associated with QWO?
The most common side effects of QWO include bruising, pain, areas of hardness, itching, redness, discoloration, swelling and warmth in the treatment area. Our expert injector will review your medical history to determine if QWO is right for you.
How much does a QWO treatment cost at Youtherapy?
QWO requires three treatments, spaced three weeks apart. These treatments start around $800 per session, with discounted packages available for your convenience.
