Qwo Cellulite Injections
What is Qwo?
Qwo (collagenase clostridium histolyticum) is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for the reversal of cellulite of the buttocks. The treatment enzymatically breaks down the fibrous collagen bands that cause cellulite dimpling.
What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is the dimpled-looking skin that commonly occurs in the butt and thigh region. Cellulite is present in over 80% of women. It forms when fatty tissue deep in the skin pushes up against connective tissue and thickened fibrous bands pulls inward.
How is Qwo administered?
Qwo is administered by a series of injections into the dimples with a very small needle. A full treatment involves three appointments for injections three weeks apart.
What are the side effects?
Bruising and tenderness will be present after each treatment. The amount of bruising is most severe after the first treatment. There is no downtime. You can exercise the very same day you receive treatment.
When will I see results?
You will see results after your first visit, but full results are appreciated two weeks following your final treatment. So, full results are present within two months!
Can it be combined with other procedures?
Absolutely and we plan to do that often. Our practice offers CoolSculpting to reduce bulky fat, Profound to tighten skin and Qwo to release the tethers of cellulite.
