Qwo® (collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes) is a first-of-its-kind treatment used to treat moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women.
Most women will have cellulite in their lifetime –
about 9 out of 10 women.
That means your tough workouts and healthy eating habits are fantastic for your fitness and overall wellness—but won't do much to reduce your cellulite. If you really want to reduce cellulite, you need to understand what's behind it. The 3 main factors that contribute to cellulite: Skin, Fat, & Fibrous Bands. Skin naturally thins over time, fat cells enlarge and push against the skin, and fibrous bands under the skin thicken and cause tension, creating cellulite on your butt.
QWO is a Non-Surgical Injectable
With QWO, women and their aesthetic specialists can choose the first and only FDA-approved injectable available that treats cellulite in the butts of adult women.
QWO is thought to work in 3 ways: releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen. The enzymes in QWO—called collagenases—are believed to target a structural cause under the skin. It's believed that QWO breaks down the buildup of collagen in the fibrous bands.
QWO Treatment - What to Expect
At your appointment, your aesthetic specialist will discuss treatment and expectations. After identifying the treatment areas, they'll use a small needle to inject QWO. You may receive up to 12 injections per treatment area. QWO injections will be given 21 days apart for 3 treatment visits.
