What Is Cellulite?
Cellulite is a complex multi-factorial condition hallmarked by fat trapped in the dermal layer of your skin leading to dimpling, waviness, “orange peel” or “cottage cheese” appearing skin texture and/or overall less smooth contour irregularity. The dimpling is often caused by “fibrous septae.”
What Is ESR?
Enzymatic Subcision and Remodeling (ESR™) describes the mechanism of action of Qwo™injections. Qwo™is an injectable formulation that consists of two enzymes that degrade collagen molecules. When Qwo™ is injected into the area beneath a dimple, it stimulates the initiation of ESR. ESR involves the enzymatic degradation of collagen-rich fibrous septae which play a key role in the pathophysiology of cellulite. By disrupting thesesubdermal fibrous structures, Qwo™causes therelease of cellulite-associated skin depressions and smooths the surface of the skin. Furthermore, Qwo™stimulates the production of new collagen molecules (neocollagenesis) which further improves the appearance of the skin.
