FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS QWO® FOR CELLULITE REDUCTION?
QWO is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for moderate to severe cellulite in adult women’s buttocks. The treatment entails a prescription medicine that breaks up collagen and encourages the growth of healthy tissue by dissolving the fibrous bands that cause cellulite in the first place.
QWO is a comprehensive treatment designed for all skin types and ethnicities, making it the best solution for most patients when it comes to cellulite reduction. But keep in mind that QWO is solely indicated for cellulite – not skin laxity.
WHAT MAKES QWO® BETTER THAN OTHER TREATMENTS FOR CELLULITE REDUCTION?
Overall, other treatments for cellulite reduction are either invasive, ineffective, or only work on mild to moderate cellulite. QWO changed the game because it’s, at the same time, a no-downtime treatment for moderate to severe cellulite that is also proven to be effective.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING THE QWO® TREATMENT?
For most patients the treatment course takes 3 sessions, scheduled 3 weeks apart. During each session the practitioner will mark the cellulite dimples to treat and then inject each one with three small doses of QWO. The whole procedure takes only around 15 minutes.
You will be able to see your results about a week after your final treatment. But it is important to have reasonable expectations. The first session will definitely show an improvement, but it won’t result in complete removal of all your cellulite.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR QWO®?
The best candidates for QWO are adult women who have moderate to severe cases of cellulite in their buttocks. At this stage, QWO is still not suitable for men, or indicated for other parts of the body, such as thighs and stomach.
You shouldn’t receive QWO if you have any known collagenase allergies or any form of active infection in the treatment area.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS ASSOCIATED WITH QWO®?
As it goes with any injectable treatment, there is always a risk of swelling and bruising at the injection site. While the mild to moderate swelling will likely subside after the first few days, the bruising that can last up to two weeks. But you should be able to go back to the gym and lead an active lifestyle the day after being treated with QWO, so there’s no actual downtime.
