The Doctors share an update on a cellulite injection we demonstrated earlier this season. Find out if the procedure was successful at treating our patient's unwanted cellulite.
Dr. Sonia Batra previously showed us the "QWO" injection, which is used to treat moderate to severe cellulite on the butt. She called it "Botox for the butt," because it uses enzymes to break up the collagen that can cause the dimpling and fibrous tethers on the skin.
Our patient Shannon had 3 treatments spaced 21 days apart and got injections into the dimple areas on her backside to make them more shallow. Dr. Batra says after the injections the dimples are much less pronounced and the topography of her skin changed for the better.
Shannon says there was some slight pain with the injections, followed by bruising, but after each series of injections, the bruising became less and less. Shannon tells The Doctors she is "pleasantly surprised" with the results.
Dr. Batra explains a skin tightening procedure -- like radiofrequency or ultrasound treatment -- could be paired with these injections for even better results.
