What Causes Cellulite?

How many times have you tried to rid one of the most unsightly and annoying skin problems? Cellulite is one of the most frustrating things we can experience, no matter how hard we try to reduce it. 85% of women over the age of 21 have that dimpled-looking skin that occurs around the thighs and the buttocks. But what causes it, and how can Levy Dermatology help you fight it?

How Cellulite Forms

Many of us confuse cellulite as being related to fat. If you have tried to remove it through lifestyle changes, such as a low-fat diet and more exercise, but nothing is working, remember, cellulite isn’t directly caused by fat.


Cellulite forms from the tension from fibrous bands located underneath the fat tissue. When our skin starts to thin over time and our fat cells get bigger, they start to push against the skin. The fibrous bands work by pushing fat tissue against the surface of the skin, which causes the dimpling effect associated with cellulite.


So even if you work hard to lose a lot of weight, the bands underneath the fat can create so much pressure that the dimpling will appear, no matter how hard you try to get rid of it! So what is the solution?


Introducing Qwo®: An Injectable Cellulite Treatment

If you are looking for a non-surgical treatment, Qwo® is the first and only injectable approved by the FDA to treat moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks. With injections taking as little as 30 minutes, causing visible results within seven weeks, it is the modern approach to treating cellulite.


Qwo® is a prescription medicine that works by targeting collagen to loosen the bands underneath the fat, resulting in a smoother-looking surface that starts to reduce the appearance of cellulite.


It is only for use on the buttocks. If you are looking for a treatment that works in other areas, there are other procedures available.


Benefits of Qwo®

Qwo® offers many benefits for people looking for a non-invasive treatment for their cellulite.


First of all, treatments can be completed in as little as 30 minutes, they do not have the same impact on your daily life as other treatments.


Without the need for any downtime or anesthesia, it is a quick treatment that produces long-lasting results. It is effective on all types of skin and skin tones and produces a dramatic improvement in your skin’s appearance.


It is a treatment that has been thoroughly researched through the largest set of clinical trials for cellulite treatment. It is a revolutionary approach to treating cellulite.

Am I a Candidate for Cellulite Treatments?

It is a treatment suitable for most people; however, you should not have Qwo® if you have any allergic reactions to the ingredients, including collagenase, and if you have any concerns about potential side effects.


For example, some patients can experience allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis, and for those with sensitive skin, bruising could occur on the site of the injection area. If you are experiencing the frustration that comes along with cellulite, and nothing appears to be smoothing it out, Qwo® could be what you are looking for.
