What is Cellulite, and What Causes It?

Cellulite is the name given to a small bulge or lump in the skin that appears on the surface of some areas of the body, most often near the top of the thighs and buttocks.

The appearance of cellulite is caused by pockets in this part of the body which is made up both of fat, and connective tissue.

 Cellulite actually derives from three different sources: fat cells (which are found under the skin), connective tissue (which helps hold skin together), and elastin fibers.

Cellulite forms when fat on the body pushes against connective tissue under the skin. Women tend to get cellulite more often because they have four times more adipose tissue in their bodies than men.

Notable causes for Cellulite:

  • There are many factors that contribute to cellulite, including genetics, hormones, weight fluctuations and overall lifestyle choices.
  • Hormones can stimulate the production of excess body fat cells which decreases collagen supply which in turn produces cellulite.
  • Poor circulation leads to a decrease in elasticity and strength of collagen fibers.
  • Genetics can lead to increased risk factors.

What is QWO for cellulite?

QWO cellulite treatment is a combination of 2 purified bacterial collagenolytic enzymes that disrupt targeted collagen structures under physiologic conditions and is approved by the FDA for the treatment of moderate-to-severe cellulite in women.


How Does QWO Work for Cellulite Reduction?

QWO is a new-age treatment, the most effective way to fight against cellulite, a stubborn body fat that accumulates on the skin, hips buttocks and thighs.

The process of QWO can be described as non-surgical, which is done through injections. The procedure includes the injection of an enzyme called collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes, an innovative natural treatment made with a single injection that dissolves fat cells responsible for cellulite.
