What is QWO?
How it Works
Cellulite is simply part of our biology. Most women will have cellulite in their lifetime — about 9 out of 10 women, in fact. Unfortunately, no matter how much you work out, eat healthy, or wish it away, cellulite won’t budge unless you get to the source.
While it is not fully understood how QWO works in moderate to severe cellulite, the enzymes — called collagenases- – are believed to target a structural cause under the skin.
It’s thought that QWO works in three ways: releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen.
Treatment and Recovery
After your consultation, your provider will discuss your treatment and what to expect. During the treatment, your provider will inject QWO into your dimples. QWO injections take 10 minutes or less. In clinical trials, women required no post-treatment downtime. A patient’s standard treatment plan will be to receive 3 treatments 21 days apart. Visible results may be achieved in 10 weeks. (Individual results may vary)
QWO may cause serious side effects:
Allergic (hypersensitivity) reactions, including anaphylaxis and injection site bruising, may occur.
In studies, most bruising lessened after each treatment and resolved in less than 21 days.
The most common side effects of QWO include: injection site bruising, pain, areas of hardness, itching, redness, discoloration, swelling and warmth in the treatment area.
