Qwo, is a prescription injectable, that helps patients, most commonly women, to reduce the appearance of unwanted cellulite and fatty tissue buildups, along the buttocks, hips and some of the thighs. While the procedure is relatively new, and not many patents have gotten the chance to try it out, the ones who have are already raving about its effectiveness. In this article, we will explore some of the important things to know about this injectable method and find out if it’s right for you!
How Does Qwo Work?
The fact is that the researchers and scientists behind the creation of Qwo, often find it difficult to explain the method of action to everyday patients – as it is quite a complicated reaction that takes place within the skin. Qwo has been proven to effectively treat patients with moderate to severe cellulite issues, using a specialized enzyme within its structure.
This enzyme, known as collagenases, is known to target the structural makeup under the skin – working in three different ways.
- Releasing fibrous bands that makeup the tissue.
- Redistributing fatty tissue and cells in the area.
- Stimulating the growth of new collagen cells. This s important, as collagen is generally lost with age.
Therefore, in essence, Qwo works by breaking down the fatty tissue and cellular structure of the fat cells, that make up the cellulite along a patient’s backside and the surrounding area. Once broken down, it is able to redistribute it and remove it from the area, then it is able to stimulate the production of collagen, a vital skincare protein, that is the building block for new connective tissue and skin cells.
Side Effects & Downtime
One of the best parts of this being a non-invasive procedure, that works using a simple injection, is that it can be done extremely fast, and doesn’t require any downtime, at all – patients can resume their daily activities immediately after the procedure is done. However, in some cases, patients may experience some minor side effects, specifically along the injection site(s) – mild cases of bruising, light pain, areas of hardness, itching, redness, discoloration, swelling and warmth in the treatment area.
