Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT ARE QWO® INJECTIONS?
QWO® is an FDA-approved prescription medicine that uses an injectable form of collagenase clostridium histolyticum for the treatment of moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. Using collagenase clostridium histolyticum as its active ingredient, QWO® targets the fibrous connective tissue to dismantle collagen types 1 and 3, allowing the smoothing of the skin and an improved appearance of cellulite.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR QWO® INJECTIONS?
QWO® injections are a great alternative for patients seeking a safe, non-surgical means of correcting cellulite in the buttocks. Ideal candidates who are physically healthy and don’t have any active infections or bleeding disorders may need to consider alternatives to QWO. It is not a suitable treatment for pregnant or breastfeeding women. The best way to ensure the treatment matches your goals is to schedule a complimentary consultation at the closest StudioMD location.
DO QWO® INJECTIONS LEAVE BRUISES?
Very often. Around 85% of patients treated with QWO experience some level of injection site bruising. It is a common side effect associated with most injectables and the bruising should diminish over the first two weeks after treatment. But keep in mind that QWO is contraindicated in patients with a history of hypersensitivity to collagenase or any of the excipients or the presence of infection at the injection sites.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME WITH QWO® TREATMENT?
One of the best advantages of QWO® is that it has no downtime. You can expect to return to work, school, and other normal activities immediately after your session. But you should wait 24 hours before resuming any vigorous exercise in order to help reduce increased blood flow to the area. Also, keep in mind that compression shorts should be worn for 3-5 days after treatment and that tanning or prolonged exposure should be avoided for at least 2 weeks.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
QWO® costs will vary depending on the severity of your cellulite. The treatment is usually sold as a package of three treatment sessions spaced 21 days apart. Package treatments start at $2,250 for three sessions with one vial applied each session.
