New FDA-approved cellulite treatment promises to improve dimpled look with injection
The treatment is now becoming available in doctors’ offices.
Even the most flattering swimsuit can’t hide cellulite, that dreaded area of dimpled skin most every woman can point to on her bottom and thighs.
Lots of home remedies promise results, but none really deliver because they don’t target the root cause of the problem — the architecture of fat, experts say.
Cellulite is one of the most misunderstood phenomena in cosmetics among both among patients and physicians, said Dr. Mathew Avram, director of dermatologic surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston and head of its Dermatology Laser & Cosmetic Center.
“People think it has something to do with them not exercising well or being overweight, when in fact it’s an architectural phenomenon,” Avram told TODAY.
“It bothers patients tremendously, they’re very interested in treatment, but they’re also very wary of kind of snake oil solutions that that haven’t helped them in the past.”
Now a new option, Qwo — the first injectable treatment for cellulite in the buttocks approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration — is becoming available in doctors’ offices. Avram has been among physicians taking part in an early launch over the past few weeks.
Qwo is made of enzymes that target the structural causes of cellulite under the skin. Here’s what prospective patients need to know:
What is cellulite?
It’s estimated up to 90% of adult women have cellulite, typically on the abdomen, buttocks and thighs, according to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery. It’s rare in men, Avram said.
As women go through puberty, there are hormonally-based changes in the way their fat is organized, he noted. Fibrous bands that anchor the skin to the muscle, called septae, pin down fat tissue, resulting in the dimpled “cottage cheese” look.
How does the new treatment work?
The injected enzymes are thought to break and release those fibrous strands, redistributing fat cells. “It goes from kind of the dimpling to a smoother surface of the skin,” Avram said.
Before the treatment begins, the patient stands so that the doctor can circle any dimples that should be treated. The patient then lies down and Qwo is injected into those spots. Each buttock can receive up to 12 injections during a session, which takes about 15 minutes.
A total of three visits, at least 21 days apart, may be needed to get the best results. The number of treatments depends on the amount of improvement a doctor is seeing and the amount improvement the patient desires, Avram noted.
Emsculpt Neo is The first and only non-invasive body shaping procedure to burn fat with radiofrequency while strengthening and toning muscles with high intensity focused electromagnetic energy (HIFEM) in one 30 minute session.
Exercises that target the abdomen and buttocks like crunches and squats work by repeatedly contracting the muscles to increase their strength and size over time. EMSCULPT uses the same principles to trigger muscle contractions up to 20,000 times in a single session.
Studio Sculpt located in Clawson Michigan provides the latest FDA approved body sculpting technology Emsculpt Neo.

This makes EMSCULPT Neo a perfect solution for men and women of any shape and size who may have pockets of fat that refuse to budge, or those who are fit and slim, but are looking for a way to put the finishing touches on their hard work.
