What is Cellulite?

Cellulite creates a dimpled skin texture that typically does not respond to changes in diet and exercise. It occurs when fat becomes trapped in the skin’s deeper layers and is pushed to the surface by thickened connective bands between skin and muscle.

What is QWO?

QWO is an exciting new option for reducing stubborn cellulite in the thighs and buttocks without invasive surgery. By restoring a smooth, youthful upper leg profile, QWO can help enhance your self-confidence and expand your wardrobe choices.

How does QWO work?

QWO (collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes) delivers two enzymes to the skin that target and dissolve collagen. This helps to loosen the taut fibrous connective bands that tether the skin to the underlying muscles. QWO injections are administered over the course of three sessions spaced at 3-week intervals.
