What Treatment Does Dr. Manrique Offer at Tysons Corner to Patients With Cellulite?
Treatment for cellulite ultimately is determined by the severity and location of the cellulite, and can vary. Although cellulite can be difficult to treat because it is caused by hormonal changes that produce fibrotic bands that form dimples and saggy skin, Dr. Manrique offers a few treatment solutions:
Check out in Tysons Corner the first and only FDA-approved injectable for cellulite.
If you have cellulite, you’re like almost 90% of all women. Cellulite may not define you, but it might bother you. If so, get to know QWO in Tysons corner.
Visible results may be achieved in 10 weeks. In clinical studies, women received 3 treatments of QWO, 21 days apart.
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 your skin.
It’s thought that QWO works in 3 ways: releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen.
Dr. Manrique has a vast experience in surgery treating all body concerns including cellulite. In a detailed consultation she will tell you if you are a good candidate for this treatment.
Subcision may also be used to smooth out the fibrotic bands, in coordination with fat transfer to fill out areas of depression. Subcision is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure used to treat depressions in tissue by inserting a hypodermic needle into the skin and using it to break the fibrotic bands responsible for holding the skin to the underlying tissue. After subcision, fat can be transferred to areas that require more volume to even out the skin’s texture.
For areas with minimal depressions, Sculptra may be used instead. Sculptra is a type of dermal filler that is used to correct areas of depression by adding volume. It is a faster, less expensive, and less painful alternative to surgery with no recovery time.
