Explore the enzymes
LEARN ABOUT COLLAGENASES
It’s not fully understood how QWO works in moderate to severe cellulite. The enzymes in QWO—called collagenases—are believed to target a structural cause under the skin.
It’s thought that QWO works in 3 ways: releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen.
Cellulite isn’t your fault
IT’S JUST A NATURAL PART OF WOMEN’S BIOLOGY
Most women will have cellulite in their lifetime–about 9 out of 10 women, in fact.
That means your tough workouts and healthy eating habits are fantastic for your fitness and overall wellness—but won’t do much to reduce your cellulite.
If you really want to reduce cellulite, you need to understand what’s behind it.
Cellulite isn’t fat. It isn’t caused by what, or how much, you eat. Or because you aren’t exercising enough.
Here’s what contributes to cellulite
There are 3 things that together cause those signature dimples. Let’s take a look under the surface of the skin.
SKIN – Over time, skin thins.
FAT – Fat cells enlarge and push against the skin.
FIBROUS BANDS – The fibrous bands under the skin thicken and cause tension and the signature dimpling on your butt.
