Seeing a few more dimples in your skin than you’re used to? Don’t worry – cellulite is totally normal! However, at Augusta Plastic Surgery we often get questions from our patients about why they have cellulite and what they can do about it. We’re here to answer your questions!
Why Do I Have Cellulite?
Cellulite is caused when the fibrous bands under the skin thicken and cause tension. Fat cells then enlarge and over time, your skin will thin, causing cellulite dimples. Some women are genetically predisposed to have cellulite, and some are not. Genetics, body fat percentage, and age can all play a part in whether you have cellulite and how noticeable it is. No body type is immune.
Other factors that can contribute to cellulite are:
- Weight gain
- Tissue inflammation
- Loss of collagen
Can Augusta Plastic Surgery Help Make My Cellulite Less Visible?
We can! QWO Cellulite Treatment is one of our newest treatment options that can help visibly reduce cellulite in as few as 10 weeks. QWO is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for moderate to severe cellulite in women, and is the least invasive treatment currently available.
QWO is a quick in-office treatment that takes as little as 30 minutes. QWO is injected by our Nurse Injectors directly into targeted dimples using a small needle. In clinical studies, women received 3 treatments of QWO spaced 21 days apart from each other for optimal results.
