Welcome to RefinedMD, where your complexion can be taken beyond fabulous to artfully refined. Board Certified Dermatologist Dr. Steven Swengel, along with double Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Sudeep Roy, bring decades of expertise to the practice and together offer a complete suite of medical, aesthetic, and surgical treatments. We’re proud to offer the only FDA-approved treatment for cellulite – meet Qwo!
It’s estimated that 90 percent of women and 10 percent of men have cellulite, and you definitely don’t need to be overweight to struggle with it. If you’ve heard that there’s no solution for cellulite, that’s no longer true (thank goodness!). Cellulite is definitely tricky to treat, and it’s true that there’s no topical cream, lotion, or serum that really works. Qwo is the first and only FDA-approved cellulite injectable treatment for moderate to severe cellulite dimples on the buttocks.
When Qwo is injected, it releases the tension that causes cellulite so that skin can return to its supple, smooth, youthful appearance. Even better, Qwo tells the body to start producing new collagen in that area, so results just get better and better over time. Right now, Qwo has been FDA-approved for treating cellulite on the buttocks, one of the most common areas where it appears.
Results are not immediate, but they happen pretty quickly. Most clients start to see results just three weeks after injections. Many clients also require more than one treatment round, with an average of three rounds spaced about one month apart. Side effects like bruising last 1 – 2 weeks on average, the same as with any other bruise, but not everyone experiences bruising, redness, or soreness. You can immediately get back to your daily tasks, such as working out right after your treatment.
