How Long After QWO Injections Can I Sit On My Behind?

Cellulite is perfectly normal, and it typically affects most women after they’ve gone through puberty. If the look of dimpled skin on your backside is making you hesitate before putting on your favorite bikini, QWO injections may be worth considering. 

QWO is the first of its kind and is an FDA-approved injectable to treat moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. To get the best results from this effective cellulite treatment, it’s important to closely follow the provided aftercare instructions like avoiding direct pressure on the buttocks. 

How Does QWO Work?

QWO works by breaking down the collagen in the fibrous septae that heavily contribute to the buildup of cellulite. When fat deposits form in between the skin and muscle tissue, bands of tissue known as septae often keep the skin and muscle attached around the deposits. This results in the creation of dimples on the skin. 

When injecting QWO into an area with cellulite, it functions by attacking the septae and allowing the skin to return to its original position, creating a uniform appearance. Most patients only require two to three QWO treatments to achieve their desired results. 

QWO Aftercare

QWO is a minimally-invasive injectable treatment and typically requires little to no downtime. However, it’s recommended that patients avoid strenuous physical activity for at least the first day after the treatment. It’s normal to have bruising, swelling, redness, and/ or a burning sensation at the injection site. Don’t worry as it will all go away quickly. 

For the most part, patients can sit down without concern after their QWO treatment; however, it’s wise to avoid direct pressure on the injection site. It’s also advised to avoid sitting on this area for prolonged periods over the course of the first few days following your treatment. This can help speed up the recovery process while ensuring that the results are uniform and smooth.
