QWO is a non-surgical treatment clinically proven to reduce moderate to severe cellulite.

Injections take as little as 10 minutes.

Treatment consists of 3 sessions, 21 days apart. Results appear as early as 10 weeks.

What is QWO?

QWO® is the first FDA-Approved Injectable Cellulite Treatment that removes deep dimples by breaking down the fibrous bands that cause them. Cellulite is a complex multi-factorial condition created by trapped fat in the dermal layer of the skin leading to dimpling, lumpiness, “orange peel” or “cottage cheese” appearing skin texture. The dimpling is often caused by fibrous bands, known as “septae,” and up to 90% of women are affected by cellulite that cannot be eliminated through diet and exercise.

How does QWO work to combat deep simple cellulite?

QWO works by enzymatically disrupting the fibrous septae responsible for creating cellulite, resulting in a smoother appearance of the treated skin.

Where can I have QWO injected and how is it administered?

QWO injections are FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. After discussing the treatment and expectations, your aesthetic provider will identify treatment areas and use a small needle to inject QWO directly into the target dimples. You may receive up to 12 injections per treatment area during 3 visits scheduled roughly 21 days apart.

Is QWO safe?

QWO is primarily made of CCH-Collagenase Clostridium Histolyticum. This enzyme dissolves the types of collagen that make up the fibrous septae at the root of most cellulite. Over 1,800 women participated in the QWO clinical studies, more than any other FDA-approved injectable cellulite treatment. Common side effects of QWO include injection site bruising, pain, areas of hardness, itching, redness, discoloration, swelling and warmth in the treatment area. In clinical studies, side effects generally lasted less than 3 weeks. QWO may cause allergic (hypersensitivity) reactions, including anaphylaxis, so you should not receive QWO if you are allergic to collagenase or to any of the ingredients in QWO, or have an active infection in the treatment area.

Is there downtime with QWO?

Patients who have had QWO injections typically experience bruising that can last one to two weeks after the first treatment. Patients have reported mild to moderate soreness alleviated with Tylenol or ibuprofen. Mild to moderate swelling for the first few days is also common. These side effects are generally quite mild and patients are usually able to resume their active lifestyle the day after being treated.

When can I see results and how long does QWO last?

Patients may begin to see visible improvement within 10 weeks, with continuing improvement over the course of the three treatment sessions. To date, QWO has data to support longevity for over a year and will continue to monitor how many years patients can expect to enjoy their results.
