Cellulite tends to be a four-letter word for many people, especially for those who have it. If you’re one of them, then you’re probably all too familiar with how self-conscious those unsightly dimples on your thighs and buttocks can make you feel…especially if it’s shorts and bathing suit weather! You’re not alone if cellulite is an unwanted part of your life – roughly 85% of women over the age of 25 have some degree of cellulite, but only about 10% of men are affected. The good news is there are options available that can help you give that bumpy cellulite the boot!
At Skin Esteem, we offer one of the latest innovations in treating cellulite for our clients in Northern Kentucky and the greater Cincinnati area. It’s called QWO® (collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes) and it’s the first and only FDA-approved injectable for moderate to severe cellulite. QWO is certainly making waves in the aesthetics industry thanks to its remarkable skin-smoothing benefits.

How does QWO work?
First of all, it’s important to know that cellulite is not your fault. It’s not fat caused by what or how much you eat, and it’s not the result of lack of exercise. Cellulite is plain and simple a part of a woman’s biology. Though it’s not fully understood exactly how QWO works, the medication does contain special enzymes called collagenases that target specific structural causes under the skin. There are three ways this is believed to occur:
- By releasing fibrous bands
- Redistributing the fat cells
- Stimulating new collagen production
QWO is injected directly into targeted dimples on your buttocks and thighs using a very fine needle. Treatment typically takes only about 10 minutes.
