The Doctors examine the first and only FDA-approved injection that is used to treat cellulite.
We welcome dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra, who demonstrates the brand new treatment live. She also discusses other new treatments, like the Venus Bliss Fat-Melting laser (which targets and breaks apart fat under the skin) and the CoolTone device (which is used to tone muscle through electromagnetic muscle stimulation).
As for cellulite, Dr. Batra explains the "QWO" injection (expected to launch in summer 2021) which has only been approved for women, treats moderate to severe cellulite on the butt. She notes that cellulite will cause a dimpling because of a thinning of the skin and the enlargement of fat cells, along with fibrous tethers that run through the skin.
Up to 12 injections can be done in each cheek and Dr. Batra refers to it as "Botox for the butt" because the injection uses enzymes to break up the collagen and over the course of a few weeks, patients can see results. She warns the injections can result in bruising, but will not be painful.
Dr. Batra says the procedure takes 3 treatments, 21 days apart, and while the cost is still not known, she says it will likely be comparable in price to a prestige injectable like a filler and should have long-lasting results.
