Qwo® in New York City | Marmur Medical

The dimpled, “orange-peel” appearance of cellulite can be frustrating, giving the skin of your buttocks an uneven tone and texture despite your attempts to diminish it with diet and exercise. Many people try to get rid of cellulite with specific massage techniques and topical products marketed as a skin-smoothing solution. However, these don’t usually make a noticeable difference.  

Now, there’s Qwo® – a groundbreaking, FDA-approved injectable that treats moderate to severe cellulite. This minimally invasive option can reduce the appearance of cellulite in the buttocks area.

Saying goodbye to cellulite without surgery is now possible! Contact Marmur Medical to schedule your consultation for Qwo in NYC by calling (212) 996-6900 or completing our online contact form today.

What Is Qwo?

Qwo is an injectable product consisting of two enzymes that degrade collagen molecules. When introduced into the skin, these enzymes disrupt subdermal fibrous structures, releasing the characteristic skin dimpling and causing smoother skin.

Cellulite occurs because of bands of connective tissues beneath the skin. As fat cells accumulate, they push up against the skin, while the long, tough cords pull down, creating that distinctive uneven surface. Qwo works by dissolving these bands and stimulating new collagen growth. The skin’s overall appearance improves dramatically as dimpling becomes less pronounced.  

Proven Benefits of Qwo

Though cellulite is harmless to your physical health, it can affect your self-esteem and body image. If you’re one of the millions of women struggling with cellulite, you may be hesitant to wear revealing clothes like swimsuits or taking off your clothes in intimate moments.

Qwo offers a completely nonsurgical, minimally invasive intervention for cellulite reduction that supports your healthy lifestyle. With Qwo, you can get rid of cellulite with no interruption to your busy schedule. You may begin seeing an improvement as early as three weeks after your first treatment. However, you might require a series of Qwo sessions to achieve your desired results. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Qwo?

In general, you’re well-qualified to receive Qwo if you are dissatisfied with the appearance of moderate to severe cellulite in your buttocks region and have sufficient skin elasticity. We also welcome patients who are in excellent overall health, do not smoke, and have realistic expectations for what this minimally invasive procedure can help them achieve.

Qwo has met all the necessary qualifications to receive FDA approval. However, it is not safe for women who are pregnant or nursing or any patient with bleeding issues. During your consultation, our experts will ask you questions about your health history to determine if you have any specific risk factors.

What to Expect During and After a Qwo Procedure

At Marmur Medical, we prioritize our patients’ results and concerns with a compassionate approach. Our philosophy of Preservation Aging® stems from our firm belief that people deserve carefully selected treatments to support their bodies’ innate healing systems. We’ve chosen Qwo as one of the cutting-edge procedures we offer to save our patients time while enhancing their appearance.

On the day of your appointment, our friendly staff will greet you and put you at ease. Typically, a Qwo treatment takes a matter of minutes. After marking the targeted areas for injection, your provider will introduce Qwo directly into the cellulite dimples on your buttocks. Most patients report only minimal discomfort during the procedure.

As a cosmetic injectable, Qwo requires minimal downtime, and most patients can resume their standard schedule the day following their appointment. Mild to moderate bruising, swelling, and soreness at the injection site are the most typical side effects. You can manage these with over-the-counter pain medication and ice packs until they subside on their own within two weeks.
