For many women, cellulite continues to be a common cosmetic concern even though we now know why and how it occurs. Unfortunately, cellulite has proven to be a difficult problem to tackle, even with all of the advanced treatment options cosmetic medicine has to offer.
There are various treatment options for cellulite which include surgical procedures such as pickling (release of fascial bands), liposuction, and fat grafting. Many other non-surgical options exist such as Cellulaze, which utilizes thermal energy to sever cellulite bands with the use of a laser, as well as other topical and external therapies like lotions and scrubs.
Resolving cellulite is no doubt challenging, and these treatments may only provide minimal results. Many years have passed since the FDA approved a new therapy for cellulite and since only temporary results can be expected with the options listed above, it isn’t surprising that there is a buzz around QWO, otherwise known as collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes.
What is QWO?
QWO is a new FDA-approved therapy for treating moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. It is formulated using a combination of bacterial collagenases and is a treatment that holds a lot of promise for effectively improving cellulite. Unlike other cellulite treatments, it is a minimally invasive aesthetic solution that offers women an injectable alternative that goes beneath the skin surface to address the root cause of the issue.
How Does QWO Work?
The very first minimally-invasive injectable treatment to hit the market for cellulite, QWO works by releasing the fibrous septae responsible for the appearance of cellulite. It achieves this through the enzymatic breakdown of collagen, specifically types 1 and 3, leading to a smoother, improved skin appearance.
5 Ways QWO Can Boost Your Confidence
There are numerous ways we can feel confident about ourselves. However, it is undoubtedly true that feeling self-conscious about an aspect of your appearance can have an impact on your confidence. This is where aesthetic treatments come in – by helping to boost your body image and self-esteem.
QWO therapy for cellulite is no different. It promises a more effective and longer-lasting treatment for an extremely common aesthetic concern in women without the associated risks of surgery.
Some of the ways QWO can boost confidence include:
1. It can reduce your insecurities
Feeling insecure about one or more areas of your body is something many people can relate to. While it is important to love and accept your body the way it is, this should not prevent you from seeking improvements that are safe and realistic. Following 2 to 3 courses of treatment with QWO, you will start seeing positive results that will no doubt have you feeling much more confident in your appearance.
2. It can get you in the right frame of mind (and body!) for a special event
Getting ready for a big occasion such as a wedding, party, or holiday can be a big deal. You may be thinking about getting an aesthetic treatment to help you look your best for the big day.
If cellulite is the reason you feel you don’t have your perfect summer body yet, then getting QWO shots can definitely be a big boost to your confidence. Ensure you allow adequate time for the treatment to work before the occasion in order to have appreciable results.
3. You may be one step closer to your “perfect bikini body”
Even though the idea of the perfect body is subjective, as every woman is uniquely beautiful in their own right, one thing most women would agree on is wanting to be “beach-ready” for the summer. Summer presents a wonderful time for activities that involve sun, sand, and an amazing time with friends and family.
If thinking about wearing swimsuits and being out in bright sunlight brings you some anxiety as a result of your concern over cellulite issues, then that’s another way QWO therapy can ease your stress, allowing you to relax, feel confident in your skin, and enjoy your vacation.
4. You can now enjoy an expanded wardrobe
Most women who have obvious cellulite will agree that they probably own a lot more long pants and fewer shorts than others. This is totally understandable, even though having cellulite is no reason not to appreciate other positive aspects of your lower body such as having long slim legs, curvy thighs, or even strong legs that are perfect for sports!
However, it is true that cellulite treatments can give you the confidence to try out a wider variety of clothing. You may no longer feel the need to wear those long and tight jeans in the sweltering summer heat. You can now comfortably rock your sexy cutouts, shorts, and bikinis as you please.
5. Allows you to focus you!
Having cellulite often means worrying about other people’s opinions when you are picking out a dress to wear, or when you’re out with friends, family, or even a significant other. Because of the associated insecurities, you may not devote much time to self-appreciation.
With your cellulite considerably improved following QWO therapy, you can once more focus on yourself – the things you love and enjoy doing rather than measuring them up against others’ expectations. That can be so freeing!
