Cellulite can be damaging to a woman’s confidence and can be incredibly hard to get rid of, and it may cause those who suffer from cellulite to hide their bodies, keeping them from feeling their best in swimsuits or shorts. At the Aesthetic and Dermatology Center, the confidence and comfortability of our patients is our highest priority, so to combat cellulite, we now offer Qwo®, the first FDA-approved treatment that specifically targets and removes cellulite!
Lawrence Green, M.D., FAAD, and Sunny Walia, M.D., FAAD are award-winning injectors and were among the first dermatologists in Washington, D.C., Virginia, and Maryland (DVM) to exclusively provide Qwo®. They thoroughly understand this treatment, and patients can be sure that they are in great hands in our office.
How Does Qwo® Work?
Qwo® is an injectable prescription medicine used to treat moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. When Dr. Green or Dr. Walia injects Qwo® into the targeted areas, it breaks down the thickened collagen and fibrous strings that hold cellulite together with an enzyme called Collagenase Clostridium histolyticum. Results from using Qwo® can last from one year up to five years, unlike other injectables or treatments currently on the market.
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
Patients who receive Qwo® injections experience no downtime for recovery and can return to their daily activities as normal the same day as the treatment. Qwo® is a relatively painless and quick treatment. Your dermatologist will assess what areas to target for injection and perform the treatment directly after. Dr. Green and Dr. Walia will determine what treatment plan is best for each patient, but typically, patients may need to return to the office about two more times over the next few weeks to ensure they receive the best results.
Who is a Candidate for Treatment with Qwo®?
Although Qwo® is derived from bacteria, it is very safe for use in the body. Dr. Green performs this treatment in his offices in Rockville, Maryland with little to no pain or downtime. Adult women regardless of weight living in DVM that have cellulite on their buttocks may be a good candidate for this innovative treatment.
Cellulite is often confused with fat and can be embarrassing to deal with when workout routines and dieting can’t fix the problem. Our patient’s confidence in their skin is always our number one priority.
