Cellulite Reduction with QWO
This treatment targets 3 different layers of your skin using radiofrequency energy to precisely heat the underlying network of collagen and elastin fibers and increase metabolic rate of subcutaneous layers. Also, a vacuum component is used to help maximize the penetration of the energy in the treatment area, increase local blood circulation, stimulate lymphatic drainage, and assist in decreasing the fat volume in fat cells. The result is fat volume reduction with small component of skin tightening.
Cellulite is one of the most common body conditions that comes with age, hormonal changes and genetic predisposition. This “dimpled” appearance tends to appear on legs, buttocks and bellies due to protrusion of subcutaneous (fat) tissue.
The radiofrequency energy heats the hypodermal layers to enhance blood microcirculation, in turn increasing fat cell metabolism leading to fat volume reduction. The heating effect in the dermal layers also contributes to connective tissue remodeling which tightens the skin for a longer period of time.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
You will feel some mild suction and pulses of heat as the treatment handpiece is moved over the treatment area. This is a comfortable treatment. There is absolutely no downtime. Patients can return to their daily routine immediately after the session. Each area is treated for about 15 minutes. It depends on how many areas of treatment as to how long your appointment will be. This will be determined at your comprehensive consultation. Typically, 6-8 treatments spaced 2 weeks apart are required for maximum results. However, many patients have seen some results within the first few treatments.
