What is QWO?
Unlike fat, cellulite usually cannot be eliminated through the use of proper diet and exercise. In fact, cellulite can be an incredibly tricky thing to avoid, and especially to remove. This can lead to endless amounts of insecurity when wearing shorts, bathing suits, and various other types of clothing. Fortunately, Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery offers QWO: the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment designed to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks. To learn more about this revolutionary injection, contact our Jacksonville, FL office today to schedule a consultation with one of our expert medical professionals.
"I am writing this article in praise of my Aesthetician, Chris Weber at PVPS. I recently had a small procedure done and was concerned about post surgery care and maintenance of my lid area of my eye which is very delicate. I have been going to Chris at PVPS for several years now and thoroughly have enjoyed her tips and especially the expert and thorough knowledge she expends through years of her attending the most advanced progressive symposia's and certifications in skincare. My skin always looks marvelous when I follow in her advice on skincare and many family and friends have now made PVPS their skincare meca of choice and Chris as their Aesthetician. No matter if I choose to use the skincare that she recommends after she utilizes on a facial for me or to first "test drive" the skincare products I always return to get those products because quite honestly my skin just looks and feels better! Again, I returned to Chris to follow up and heed her suggestions of what would help firm, moisturize and keep my delicate eye area looking tight and smooth. I have been following this regimen and gotten many compliments. I started out after having several different skincare specialists after moving to Jacksonville but have stayed with Chris simply because I love her amazing deep cleansing facial's and how I look and feel afterward. I expected the best at PVPS but certainly surprised that Chris has elevated my experience far beyond my own expectations, she is superior at her craft! Chris is the total package for indulgence, experience and complete relaxation!"- L.W. / Yelp / Nov 17, 2015
"I had my breast done in January with Dr. Hickman and she was amazing! She took her time with any questions during the consult, making sure I was completely informed and comfortable. Her work is amazing, I love the outcome."- B.W. / Google / May 12, 2021
"After putting it off for way too long, I finally bit the bullet and went to Claudette to get tear trough filler and I am so glad I did. I was nervous but I trusted Claudette and boy did she deliver! Apparently my case was one of the more difficult ones she has had because of the amount of fat loss from my face. This impressed me even more given how she absolutely nailed it on the first try. Now I don't have to pointlessly put concealer under my eyes or worry about looking tired when I'm not. My face is brighter and more lifted and it's all because of Claudette's expertise. I've been beaming ever since. I *highly* recommend her if you are considering fillers."- KZ / Office Visit / May 13, 2021
"I cannot say enough things about Dr. Bates and his Nurse!!! From my first visit to surgery and PostOp, the care I received has been top notch. When I had a minor complication Dr Bates was quick to give me a call and answer any questions I had. His bedside manner is what really sets him apart. If you’re thinking about using Dr. Bates just do it!!!! I will use him again for future operations."- A.P. / Google / Apr 23, 2021
"I’ve been to the Nocatee and Ponte Vedra location for micro needling, Botox and a facial. I’ve used Mary and Amy and I LOVE them. They must know I’m a bit self conscious about my skin and are always so mindful of that. Awesome ladies! All the front desk ladies are always fantastic as well. I always recommend you guys for services. You all rock! :)"- S.L. / Office Visit / Jun 16, 2021
Is QWO Right for Me?
QWO is a safe form of treatment for patients of most ages. However, we do not recommend the procedure for patients who currently have an infection, loose skin, diabetes, or varicose veins. Additionally, patients who are pregnant or have a bleeding problem should avoid the treatment. Typically, patients should:
- Be at a healthy, stable weight
- Have cellulite on their buttocks
- Possess toned skin
How is QWO Performed?
Before the treatment begins, we will ask you to stand up while we mark the designated injection sites on your body. Typically, there is no need for local anesthesia or numbing creams, though they can be administered if preferred by the patient. A member of our team will then perform the injections in the designated areas with up to 12 injections being made per buttock. In total, the procedure usually only takes about ten minutes but can vary, depending on the number of injections being made.
What Results Can I Expect from QWO?
At the immediate conclusion of the treatment, patients will be free to return to their home, work, or back to their normal lives. However, we do recommend for patients to refrain from exercise and heavy lifting for at least two days to allow the treated area time to recover. There may be some slight bruising and/or discomfort, though this should subside naturally within a few days. QWO requires three treatments spaced 21 days apart. About 28 days after the final treatment, patients will usually begin to see results in the appearance of cellulite on their buttocks.
