QWO® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for cellulite. If you have cellulite, you're like almost 90% of all women. Cellulite may not define you, but it might bother you. If so, get to know QWO®.
QWO® is a non-surgical treatment clinically proven to reduce moderate to severe cellulite.
It's not fully understood how QWO® works in moderate to severe cellulite. The enzymes in QWO®—called collagenases—are believed to target a structural cause under the skin.
It's thought that QWO® works in 3 ways: releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen.
What are results with QWO®?
Visible results may be achieved in 10 weeks. In clinical studies, women received 3 treatments of QWO®, 21 days apart.
How is QWO® given?
QWO® is injected by your aesthetic specialist directly into targeted dimples in the buttocks using a small needle.
You should not receive QWO® if you are allergic to any collagenase or the ingredients in QWO®, or have an active infection in the treatment area.
How many treatments will I receive?
If your aesthetic specialist determines that QWO® is right for you, she or he will decide on a treatment plan, including the total number of treatments.
How long do the injections take?
At each office visit, injections take as little as 10 minutes.
Are there any side effects?
QWO® may cause serious side effects including allergic (hypersensitivity) reactions, including anaphylaxis and injection site bruising.
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.
In clinical studies, side effects generally lasted less than 3 weeks.
These are not all the possible side effects of QWO®.
