A cutting edge treatment for cellulite… without the cutting.
The first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment for moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women.
It can be hard to talk about as something as personal as your cellulite. You can take comfort in knowing that you are not alone with your struggles! Approximately 90% of all adult women have cellulite, no matter what they eat or how much they exercise.
Over time, three completely normal things can happen- fat cells get larger, skin gets thinner and a little looser and the fibrous bands under the skin’s surface get thicker, leading to a dimpled appearance.
Women are more likely to have cellulite than men because men have thicker skin and their collagen bands are oriented in a crisscross fashion, essentially eliminating the ability of the fat lobules to bulge through.
Q: What is Qwo®?

Enzymes called collagenases target the structural causes under the skin, where cellulite starts. It’s thought that QWO works by releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen.
