In most cases, you’ll be able to return to your daily routine almost immediately. You may experience mild swelling, redness or discoloration, itchiness, tenderness and bruising, but these should go away within a couple of days and lessen with subsequent treatments. You’ll see the best results with a series of treatments rather than a one-off appointment, as it takes a while for the septae to dissipate. Serial treatments are usually done once every three weeks until you reach your desired results.
Although QWO cellulite treatments are entirely safe for skin of color, clinical trials showed that darker skin tones are slightly more likely to develop hyperpigmentation as a side effect. Whatever your skin tone, treatment and recovery will go better if you avoid medications, foods and supplements known to cause blood thinning.
After treatment, your results should last at least six months. However, because QWO dissolves the cellulite bands, there is evidence that the results can be much longer-lasting than the time studied.
