Got cellulite? You aren’t alone! Cellulite affects 90% of women and about 10% of men at some point in their lives. Cellulite does not discriminate and can appear on bodies of all shapes, sizes, ethnicities and ages. Cellulite can get more severe with age, but genetics also play a large role in its presence. That means your workouts and healthy eating habits are fantastic for your health and wellness, but won’t necessarily be your ultimate solution to pesky cellulite. The appearance of cellulite may be annoying and have an effect on your day to day life. Luckily, there is a new treatment for cellulite called QWO! QWO is the first FDA-approved injectable treatment for cellulite in adult women. It addresses the main causes of cellulite non-surgically!
Skin, fat and fibrous bands are the 3 things that make up the overall appearance of cellulite. Over time and with age the skin thins, making what is underneath it more visible, such as fat. Fat cells change size as our bodies fluctuate and can grow and push up against the skin. Fibrous bands under our skin can thicken and pull downwards, causing the dimpling effect on the skin. The reason men do not experience cellulite as often as women is because men have thicker skin and their collagen bands are oriented in a crisscross fashion, making it harder for fat cells to bulge through. QWO addresses these three components of cellulite. The enzymes in QWO, called collagenases, are believed to target the structural cause of cellulite under the skin. QWO causes these fibrous bands to release, allowing the fat to redistribute and smooth the area. QWO also stimulates the growth of new collagen, helping to improve the condition of the skin!
77% of women spend time trying to actively address or cover up their cellulite, and nearly half of women say they are immensely bothered by the appearance of their cellulite. So live healthy, smooth out the cellulite and be confident so you can “Thrive and QWO!”
