QWO Cellulite Treatment

What is QWO?

QWO (Collagenase Clostridium Histolyticum-aaes) is a prescription injectable used in office to treat moderate to severe cellulite.

The science behind cellulite

9 out of 10 women will develop cellulite in their lifetime! Many believe that it can be reduced through adequate diet and exercise, but that is not how cellulite works. Over time as we age the skin starts to thin. Fat cells enlarge and push against the skin while fibrous septae bands under the skin begin to thicken. This causes tension and the ‘dimpling’ that we refer to as cellulite.

What is treatment like?

After appropriate photography and dimple marking, QWO is directly injected into the targeted dimples using a s mall needle. Up to 24 dimples can be injected at each treatment session. A full treatment series includes three sessions, spaced three weeks apart.

What are the side effects of Qwo?

The main side effect of Qwo is bruising. Each session includes a VBeam laser treatment for quicker resolution of bruising. Sometimes severe bruising can lead to iron deposits causing hemosiderin staining. This eventually resolves on its own but can last for months. Other side effects may include discomfort at the injection site, itching, redness, swelling, and/or nodules.
