QWO is a prescription medicine, non-surgical treatment clinically proven to reduce moderate to severe cellulite and is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women.
Statistically 9 out of 10 women will have cellulite in their lifetime regardless of diet or work out routine. In fact, eating healthy and working out will not do much to reduce cellulite.
What is cellulite?
Cellulite is cause by three things that together create those signature dimples.
- Skin that thins over time
- Fat cells that enlarge and push against the skin.
- Fibrous bands under the skin that thickens and causes tension and the signature dimpling on your butt.
How does Qwo work?
Qwo is an injection given in the buttocks of adult women. It’s not fully understood how QWO works in moderate to severe cellulite, however, the enzymes in QWO—called collagenases—are believed to target a structural cause under your skin. It’s thought that QWO works in 3 ways:
- Releasing fibrous bands
- Redistributing fat cells
- Stimulating the growth of new collagen
If your aesthetic specialist determines that QWO is right for you, she or he will decide on a treatment plan, including total number of treatments. Each treatment visit may include up to 2 treatment areas. QWO injections will be given 21 days apart for 3 treatment visits.
The injections, given through a small needle, can take 10 minutes or less and visible results may be achieved in 10 weeks.
What can I expect after my Qwo treatment?
In clinical trials, women required no post-treatment downtime. Bruising may occur and is generally lessened after each treatment and resolved in less than 21 days.
