What is cellulite?
Cellulite can affect almost anyone, regardless of weight, size, or age. Lumpy, dimpled patches of skin can impair your self-confidence and make it difficult to find clothes with an ideal fit. Cellulite occurs when the connective, collagen-rich fibrous septae bands beneath the skin’s surface contract over time, causing trapped pockets of fat and blocked blood vessels. It can be difficult to determine the precise cause of cellulite, but it may arise as a result of hormonal changes, hereditary traits, inflammation, or compromised blood flow in certain areas of the body.
What is QWO, and how does it work?
QWO (collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes) is an injectable containing collagenase, an enzyme that initiates Enzymatic Subcision and Remodeling (ESR). The ESR process chemically erodes the collagen that is responsible for forming cellulite. The fibrous septae bands are released, facilitating a smoother, more even skin surface. Finally, new collagen growth is triggered to ensure long-term cessation of the cellulite problem. QWO typically requires about 3 sessions spaced 21 days apart.

How do I know if I am a candidate for QWO injections?
Women who are troubled by cellulite in the buttocks and have not found relief through changing their diet or exercising will find QWO to be an excellent option for non-surgical body sculpting. During your private consultation, our team will assess your trouble spots and create a treatment plan to help you achieve the youthful, attractive physique you desire. As with any cosmetic treatment, patients should be mentally and physically healthy, and they should be realistic and positive in their outlook towards their results.
What happens after my QWO treatment?
QWO is non-surgical, so clients can quickly return to their regular activities after their sessions. Because no anesthesia is required, you’ll be free to go back to work, school, or just enjoy the rest of your day. However, in order to give QWO the best chance of success, it’s important that you avoid strenuous activities for the first few days.
