Are you bothered by stubborn cellulite that causes self-consciousness or prevents you from wearing certain shorts or swimsuits? If so, you may be able to benefit from QWO. This injectable treatment works to eliminate unsightly cellulite so you can feel more confident in your body.
What is QWO?
QWO is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment for moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. It is believed that the enzymes in QWO called collagenases target the structural cause of cellulite under the skin. It works by releasing the fibrous bands in the body that cause the dimples in the skin, thereby redistributing fat cells, and stimulating new collagen growth for smoother skin.
This treatment offers the following benefits:
- Treatment is quick
- Improvement of the appearance of cellulite
- Long-lasting results
- Little to no downtime
The QWO Treatment
During your QWO appointment, your provider will speak with you regarding the treatment process and your expectations. The treatment area will then be identified, and a small needle will be used to inject the QWO. Patients may receive up to 12 injections per treatment area depending on the amount of change desired. Each injection can take as little as 10 minutes to complete.
Who is a Candidate?
Adult women who are overall healthy and would like to eliminate cellulite on their buttocks, thighs and arms can often benefit from QWO injections. You should not receive this treatment if you are allergic to collagenase, have an active infection in the treatment area, have a bleeding problem, or are pregnant or breastfeeding.

These effects should dissipate within the next three weeks. There is no downtime required following treatment, so you can return to your regular activities. However, we do advise that you refrain from strenuous exercise for 1-2 days after injections.
Results can be achieved in 10 weeks. Most people will receive three treatments, each spaced 21 days apart.
