How Does the Treatment Work?
QWO: A Revolutionary Injectable for Buttock Cellulite
QWO is an FDA-approved injectable for treating buttock cellulite. The product uses collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes and is injected into the skin dimples. The QWO enzyme targets collagen structures to release the septae, tethering the skin and muscles and creating the bulging divots of fat. This injectable can effectively reduce the dimpling caused by cellulite for smoother skin in the buttocks. Treatments may involve up to three sessions spaced 21 days apart.
QWO offers a significant amount of cellulite reduction, though you may experience some bruising and injection site reaction such as redness, swelling or itching.
Improve Cellulite through Biostimulation with Sculptra and Radiesse
Sculptra and Radiesse are versatile dermal fillers that work by stimulating your body to smoothen skin irregularities from cellulite with more collagen for a firmer, stronger skin structure. Sculptra is made with poly-L-lactic acid and boosts your skin’s volume and framework in the deep tissues for gradual results that fill in the depressed area over time. Maintenance treatments may be needed every 15 months, depending on the patient. You’ll see visible results around six weeks after Sculptra treatment because your skin needs time to build new collagen proteins.
Radiesse uses calcium hydroxyapatite to lift the cellulite-affected area and add volume. This formula increases collagen production for continued results and can reduce cellulite by adding volume to skin depressions and boosting collagen.
These biostimulatory injectables are fast, non-surgical options to effectively reduce cellulite.
Harnessing Your Body’s Healing Properties with PRP
Your blood contains three primary components: red blood cells, white blood cells and blood platelets. Red blood cells carry oxygen throughout your body, and white blood cells help you fight infection and are part of your immune system. Your blood platelets fix cell damage and contain growth factors that signal your body to create more collagen and heal the area. Platelet-rich plasma is isolated from a sample of your blood. When PRP is re-introduced into your body in the treated area, it activates natural healing for a smoother skin texture.
Dr. Horvath will use a topical numbing agent and draw a sample of your blood from your arm. A centrifuge is used to isolate the blood platelets. PRP is injected into the cellulite area, and the minimally invasive procedure takes about 60 minutes. The process works by flooding the skin tissues with blood platelets that spring into action to address cellulite in the area for firmer skin with less visible dimpling. Candidates should be in good health and over the age of 18.
PRP treatment for cellulite takes time because your skin must revitalize the tissues and generate more collagen. Multiple treatments are needed to reach your desired results, and Dr. Horvath may recommend a series of four weekly treatments.
Cellulite Reduction with No Recovery Time
Dr. Horvath focuses on achieving your desired results with little to no downtime required, which is why he offers these minimally invasive cellulite reduction treatments. While you may experience some temporary side effects, PRP and injectables don’t require a recovery period. You can schedule your appointment over your lunch hour or in the late afternoon and return to your regular activities right away.
Non-Surgical Cellulite Treatments with Amazing Results
There are more options for cellulite reduction than ever before, and these non-surgical treatments offer significant results without a large time commitment or recovery.
Most of the cellulite treatments provided by Dr. Horvath take time to produce results because they work with your body for long-lasting improvement. You’ll likely notice results within a few weeks of your QWO treatment, with some patients seeing a difference during the first week. Full PRP results often materialize one to two months later. It can take around 10 weeks for visible results after QWO treatment, with sessions that take as few as 10 minutes.
Radiesse for collagen production and volume supplement may last a year or longer, and Sculptra results can give you firmer, smoother skin for up to two years.
