Qwo is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment of moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women.
How does Qwo work?
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. How Qwo works in cellulite is not fully understood.
Is Qwo a surgical procedure?
No. Qwo is an injectable treatment option done right in Grace Medical Aesthetics's office by one of our practitioners. A full treatment of Qwo is placed over three treatment visits that are booked 21 days apart. There is very minimal discomfort associated with a Qwo treatment, as it is only placed with a small needle. Clients liken the sensation to that of a wrinkle relaxer treatment.
How do I know if Qwo is right for me?
Grace Medical Aesthetics offers free, low pressure consultations in all of offices, located in Southbury, CT, Bedford Hills, NY, and Westport, CT. One of our practitioners will walk you step by step through the Qwo treatment series, expected results, side effects, and answer any questions you might have. In this consultation, you'll decide together if Qwo is an appropriate treatment option for you.
What are the common side effects of Qwo?
The most common side effect of Qwo is treatment area bruising. We have seen that bruising is rather significant after the first treatment visit, however with each subsequent visit the bruising tends to become less severe. While side effects differ from person to person, there is also the possibility of minor discomfort, itchiness, redness, swelling, and warmth in the treatment area. Side effects typically subside roughly 14-21 days post treatment.
How many treatments of Qwo will I need?
Full treatment of Qwo is placed in three treatment visits that are spaced 21 days apart. Most clients have been extremely satisfied with results after one full treatment. If you would like to receive another full treatment, it is recommended that you wait at least one year following your first treatment.
How much cellulite can be treated with Qwo?
Qwo can treat up to 24 cellulite dimples on the buttocks of adult women in one treatment visit, not exceeding 12 cellulite dimples per single buttock.
Can Qwo be used to treat cellulite in other areas of the body?
At this time, Qwo is only FDA-approved for treatment in the buttocks. Endo Aesthetics, the makers of Qwo, is continuing research on other areas of the body. You are more than welcome to chat with your practitioner about the status of this research and see if other areas of the body may be appropriate for treatment during your consultation.
