What is Qwo?
QWO is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. QWO is a liquid medicine injected with a tiny needle directly into cellulite dimples on the buttocks. Typically the injections are a series of 12 or 24. Once injected, the enzyme in QWO is thought to target collagen types 1 and 3 to release the septae, releasing the dimple and making the skin appear smooth.
What are the results with QWO?
Visible results may be achieved in 10 weeks. In clinical studies, women received 3 treatments of QWO, 21 days apart.
How does it work?
It’s thought that Qwo works in 3 ways: releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen.
How much bruising can I expect after each treatment?
In clinical trials, women required no post-treatment downtime. Most bruising lessened after each treatment and resolved in less than 21 days. QWO may cause serious side effects: allergic (hypersensitivity) reactions, including anaphylaxis and injection site bruising.
How long do the injections take?
At each office visit, injections take as little as 10 minutes.
