QWO CELLULITE INJECTABLE

QWO OVERVIEW

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

There are three (3) things that cause cellulite’s signature dimples:

  • Over time, your skin thins
  • Fat cells enlarge and push against your skin
  • The fibrous bands under the skin’s surface thicken and cause tension in your skin

How Does QWO Work?

They make QWO from enzymes called collagenases. These enzymes target the structural layers under the skin, where cellulite starts. QWO works by releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen. Endo Aesthetics is still studying exactly how QWO works in moderate-to-severe cellulite.

What QWO Clinical Data Exists?

QWO manufacturer Endo Aesthetics conducted the largest clinical trials in the history of cellulite investigation to help determine the safety and efficacy of QWO. These two identical trials enrolled 845 women in the United States, aged 18 or older, with moderate-to-severe cellulite in the buttocks.

Endo observed reductions in cellulite severity more frequently in the QWO group compared to the placebo group, as measured by the investigator and patient cellulite severity scales.

QWO Availability

QWO became available throughout the United States at aesthetic healthcare practitioners’ offices starting in spring 2021. Please speak with your aesthetic healthcare practitioner for more information.

    5 star review  Tonya is amazing!! She made me feel so comfortable and really listened to my concerns about my skin. She really cares and knows what she is doing. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!! I was concerned my first appointment but I just had my third and I can say it’s so worth it!!! Botox has been an incredible experience and I’m so happy to have tried it, I’m so much happier with my appearance and it looks incredibly natural. I’ve included before and after photos, neither photo is filtered or edited, you can see how makeup would collect in my forehead, and how the after it’s smooth and looks so lovely. It doesn’t feel weird or like I can’t move my muscles at all, it feels super natural. One of my biggest concerns was that I wouldn’t be able to emote with Botox but that’s just not true at all. I feel so confident and that is thanks to Tonya!

I have had multiple procedures/treatments here over the years and highly recommend them. I never feel uncomfortable or judged, which is huge when deciding on cosmetic procedures. I also never felt pressured into anything and always felt informed about all of my decisions. They have great seasonal specials on fillers, etc!
