An Injectable Treatment for Cellulite in Women’s Buttocks
Most women will get cellulite during their lifetime. Sadly, there’s nothing you can do to prevent it. Over time, skin thins and fat cell enlarge and push against the skin. The fibrous bands under the skin thicken and cause tension. These three things together create an uneven bumpy appearance which we refer to as cellulite. No amount of exercising or weight training gets rid of it. With QWO, we now have an injectable that can treat moderate to severe cellulite in women’s buttocks.

What is Qwo
QWO is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for cellulite. QWO is a prescription medicine that contains collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes. The collagenase enzymes in QWO are thought to break down and remodel the collagen in the fibrous bands under the skin that cause cellulite. QWO releases the fibrous bands, redistributes the fat cells, and stimulates the growth of new collagen. The release of these fibrous bands eliminates the tethering of the skin and the result is smoother looking appearance.
How Does a Qwo Treatment Work?
Your non-surgical QWO treatment will be performed in-office. You will receive a customized treatment plan, developed by you and our Nurse Practitioner to give you the best outcome. Each session of injections takes 15 minutes or less, and requires 1-3 sessions depending on severity of cellulite. Qwo is currently FDA-approved for buttocks cellulite. Clinical trials are ongoing to evaluate treatment of the thighs. It is possible to use Qwo in these areas in the future.
What is Recovery Like?
There is typically no downtime and minimal pain after a Qwo treatment. Swelling and bruising should be expected with each treatment. Once bruising has subsided, results are seen within a few weeks with the diminished appearance of cellulite and smoother skin. Final results are seen within 8 weeks of the last Qwo treatment.
