How does Qwo work?
Qwo treats the source of what is believed to play an important role in the cause of cellulite. With cellulite, a number of factors occur within the skin that makes it prone to dimples, and the orange peel or cottage cheese appearance often associated with cellulite. These factors include:
- Fibrous septae exist within the skin, holding the skin to the underlying muscles. These bands are composed of Type I and Type III collagen. In women, these bands run vertically, almost straight up and down from the muscle to the skin, whereas in men they run at more of an angle. This makes women more prone to cellulite than men. These bands cause depressions or valleys in cellulite.
- Fatty tissue between those fibrous bands herniates upward, causing the hills and mounds in cellulite.
- The skin itself gets thinner due to the process above, which essentially allows both the hills and valleys to occur.
By enzymatically destroying these tough fibrous septae bands formed of certain types of collagen, Qwo releases the hold they have on the skin, allowing it to return to a much smoother complexion and greatly reducing the appearance of cellulite.
