What Is Cellulite?
Cellulite is a complex multi-factorial condition hallmarked by fat trapped in the dermal layer of your skin leading to dimpling, waviness, “orange peel” or “cottage cheese” appearing skin texture and/or overall less smooth contour irregularity. The dimpling is often caused by “fibrous septae.”
What is QWO?
QWO at Procerus Skin Care with Dr. Gilmore in Ann Arbor, Michigan is the world’s first and only FDA-approved injectable for the treatment of cellulite. QWO injected by Dr. Gilmore works by enzymatically disrupting the fibrous septae responsible for creating cellulite resulting in a smoother appearance of the treated skin.
Why Choose QWO?
The QWO treatment is the first of its kind. The injection specifically targets and dissolves cellulite on the buttocks, and has a long-lasting formula, unlike any other injectable.
How Does QWO Work?
When Dr. Gilmore injects QWO into the cellulite dimples of the buttocks, an enzyme called Collagenase Clostridium histolyticum works underneath the skin to break down the thickened collagen and fibrous strings that hold cellulite together.
Who is a Candidate for Treatment with QWO?
Although QWO is derived from bacteria, it is very safe for use in the body. Any adult woman with cellulite on the buttocks is a fitting candidate for this cutting-edge treatment regardless of weight or being in the midst of weight loss.
