What is QWO?
QWO is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for the treatment of moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. Together, 3 things cause cellulite’s signature dimples: the skin thins, fat cells enlarge and push against the skin, and the fibrous bands under the skin’s surface thicken and cause tension.
How does QWO work?
Enzymes called collagenases target the structural causes of cellulite under the skin, where cellulite starts. QWO works by releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating new collagen growth to lessen the appearance of dimpling.

Each treatment visit may include up to 2 treatment areas. QWO injections will be given 3 weeks apart for a total of 3 treatment visits. Injections take about 10 minutes or less, and visible results can be seen in as little as 10 weeks!
Are there side effects from QWO?
There is moderate bruising associated with QWO injections (this is how it effectively destroys cellulite). So, we do not recommend you have any events within 2 weeks that may show the treated area, such as a vacation where you plan to wear a swimsuit. Other risks are associated with this product, and your provider will discuss these risks with you at your consultation.
In the hands of our skilled practitioners, QWO treatments for cellulite offer less risk for complications than conventional surgery, and the results are long-lasting!
