How does it work?
QWO™ targets a primary structural cause of cellulite – the fibrous septae.
Which areas is it best for?
Although cellulite clinically presents on the buttocks, thighs, lower abdomen and arms, QWO™ is currently FDA-approved for treatment of the buttocks area in adult women.
Why is this specifically for cellulite in women?
A primary factor in the cause of cellulite is the collagen containing septae which attach the skin to the underlying fascia layers. The septae tether the skin which, with additional contributing protrusions of subcutaneous fat, causes the surface dimpling characteristic of cellulite. These fibrous septae are oriented differently with varying thickness in females than in males. QWO™ is tested and FDA-cleared specifically for cellulite in adult women.
Is it painful?
No, you can expect to have a painless experience. Depending on your pain threshold, we may numb the area with a topical anesthetic to ensure your comfort.
How long do the results last?
QWO™ requires a total of three sessions, spaced 21 days apart for a lasting result of 12 months or more.
Are there any risks?
As with any injection treatment, there is a small risk of infection. We take great care to ensure this risk is minimized.
