Cellulite QWO in Garden City, NY
QWO Cellulite Treatment in Garden City, Long Island
What is Cellulite QWO?
This is unfortunately something that everyone has to deal with, regardless of age, and while it is an extremely common and harmless condition, most people would like to find a way to get rid of it. Cellulite is most common in women and many begin to develop it as early as puberty.
Cellulite is most common around the thighs and buttocks, but it can also be found on the breasts, lower abdomen and upper arms. As fat cells accumulate, they push up against the skin, while the long, tough cords pull down. This creates an uneven surface or dimpling.
How Do we treat Cellulite?
To treat cellulite, Applied Aesthetic uses QWO; the first and only FDA-approved injectable for the treatment of moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. It works by targeting the primary cause of cellulite, and the results are amazing!
The enzymes in QWO—called collagenases—are believed to target a structural cause under the skin. It’s thought that QWO works in 3 ways: releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen.

WHAT CAUSES CELLULITE?
Together, there are three things that cause cellulite’s signature dimples: over time, skin thins, fat cells enlarge and push against the skin, and the fibrous bands under the skin’s surface thicken and cause tension.
Most women will have cellulite in their lifetime–about 9 out of 10 women, in fact.
That means your tough workouts and healthy eating habits are fantastic for your fitness and overall wellness—but won’t do much to reduce your cellulite. If you really want to reduce cellulite, you need to understand what’s behind it.
