About Qwo®

INJECTABLE CELLULITE TREATMENT

QWO is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women.

Most women will have cellulite in their lifetime – about 9 out of 10 women in fact. That means your tough workouts and healthy eating habits are fantastic for your fitness and overall wellness, but won’t always reduce your cellulite.

If you really want to reduce cellulite, you need to understand what’s behind it. There are 3 things that together cause those signature dimples – the combination of skin, fat and fibrous bands.

Qwo works for moderate to severe cellulite by releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells and stimulating growth of new collagen. Qwo is a series of three injection sessions at least 21 days apart.
