What is QWO?

QWO is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment used to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe cellulite on the buttocks and the backs of the thighs. This cutting edge, minimally invasive treatment is not only quick inside the office, but it also provides our patients with the smooth, flawless skin they desire in as little as 10 weeks following their first treatment session. Patients are able to return to their normal daily activities, including work, immediately after their QWO appointment. QWO allows you to your dimples without the cutting, scarring, and lengthy recovery period typically associated with cellulite reduction treatments.

How Does QWO Work?

The secret behind QWO is its formulation using special enzymes called collagenase. Collagenase enzymes release the fibrous bands underneath the skin that contribute to the appearance of puckering and cellulite dimples, helping to redistribute the fat and tissues in your treated areas and smooth over the skin. Collagenase also works to stimulate your body’s natural production of collagen following treatment further enhance your skin’s natural bounce and supple appearance.

What are the Benefits of QWO?

  • Treats moderate to severe cellulite on the buttocks and thighs
  • Minimally invasive injectable treatment
  • Quick, 10-minute treatment sessions
  • Visible results in as little as 10 weeks

How is the QWO Treatment Like?

QWO is injected into the targeted area with a very thin needle. It is essential that you work with a provider who is skilled at administering QWO to diminish cellulite and provide natural-looking results. The number of injections needed varies based on the extent of the cellulite on your buttocks and thighs. Your provider may recommend a series of three treatments spaced three weeks apart for ultimate results.

Is There Any Downtime After QWO?

As a minimally-invasive injectable procedure, QWO treatments require minimal recovery and have very few side effects. Your treated areas may appear red, swollen, and bruised in the days following treatment. Bruising is moderate to severe following QWO treatment. 84% of study patients experienced bruising following treatment with QWO. Bruising is often eggplant-purple and encompasses the entire buttock. Bruising typically resolves within 2-4 weeks. You may also experience soreness and knots under the skin that resolve with time. These symptoms typically fade within a week, but we encourage patients to protect their skin in the meantime by using sunscreen, avoiding excessive sun exposure and keeping the skin moisturized. Despite these side effects, you will be able to resume work and other normal activities immediately following treatment.

How Much Does QWO Cost?

The cost of QWO treatments varies with each person as it is based on the areas being treated and the extent of treatment necessary to produce your desired results. We can inform you of any and all costs associated with your treatment during your initial consultation. We are also proud to offer financing options to help make our treatments as affordable as possible.
