How Long After QWO® Injections Can I Sit On My Buttocks?
There’s no magic cure for cellulite, but QWO injections come pretty close. As one of the newest and most exciting injectable products on the market today, QWO offers women the opportunity to quickly reduce unsightly cellulite in the buttocks. Compared to traditional cellulite treatments, such as surgery, QWO is dramatically more convenient and less invasive. At Body+Beauty Lab in Philadelphia, PA, our licensed team of aesthetic experts is proud to offer QWO injections to help women look and feel sexier and more confident than ever before. Read on for a closer look at how QWO injections work, including what you can expect after your QWO treatment and if you should avoid sitting directly on your buttocks.
Why can’t I get rid of my cellulite?
Cellulite is notoriously stubborn and often resistant to diet and exercise, over-the-counter products, and other treatment methods. In fact, cellulite can actually become more prominent with weight loss in certain individuals. For many patients, cellulite is caused by genetics, though it can be exacerbated by:
- A poor diet
- Sedentary lifestyle
Most often, cellulite affects women and usually develops on the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen.
What’s the best treatment for cellulite?
Generally speaking, topical cellulite products – including creams and rollers – do little to improve the appearance of cellulite. There’s no question that in-office professional treatments and procedures offer patients the best opportunity to smooth their cellulite. These may include laser therapy, surgery, and one of the most cutting-edge new cellulite treatments: QWO injections.
How does QWO help with cellulite?
To understand how QWO works to reduce cellulite dimples on the buttocks of women, it’s important to first review some fundamentals about what actually causes visible cellulite. Technically speaking, cellulite lumps, bumps, and ripples are the result of fat cells bulging between fibrous tethers – called septae – which act as connectors between the layers of skin and muscle. When QWO is injected into the buttocks, it enzymatically deteriorates these septae, resulting in a remarkably smoother skin texture. After 2 – 3 rounds of injections, spaced several weeks apart, patients will begin to notice the effects of QWO.
What should I do after cellulite injections?
Unlike more invasive cellulite treatments, QWO requires virtually no recovery period or downtime. However, patients should refrain from engaging in strenuous physical activity and/or heavy exercise for 1 – 2 days after their injections.
Can I sit down after getting QWO?
Yes, patients can safely sit down – including while driving – after a QWO treatment. However, minimizing intense pressure to the buttocks and restricting strenuous physical activity are advised for a period of 24 – 48 hours. During your initial consultation for QWO injections in Philadelphia, one of our knowledgeable team members will discuss QWO aftercare instructions in greater detail. With an experienced injector and proper aftercare, the results of QWO can last for many years, if not indefinitely.
