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.
How does QWO work?
Enzymes called collagenases target the structural causes under the skin, where cellulite starts. It’s thought that QWO works by releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen. How QWO works in moderate to severe cellulite is not fully understood.
Is QWO a surgical procedure?
No. QWO is an injectable treatment option that is thought to target a primary structural cause of cellulite— the fibrous septae. The exact mechanism for the treatment of moderate to severe cellulite is unknown.
How do I know if QWO is right for me?
During your consultation, the provider will determine if you are an appropriate candidate for QWO.
Can QWO be used to treat cellulite in other areas besides the buttocks?
