AN INJECTABLE TREATMENT FOR CELLULITE IS HERE
QWO is a prescription medicine used to treat moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. It is first and only FDA-approved injectable for moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women.
WHAT IS CELLULITE?
Typically accompanied by skin laxity and water retention, cellulite is inflammation and scarring of the superficial fat tissue. Collagen fibers anchor the skin down to the deeper tissues while fat tissue simultaneously pushes the loose skin upwards. This causes the all-too-familiar cellulite appearance, characterized by lumpy, dimpled, rippled, and wavy skin. There are varying grades of cellulite, ranging from a mild, orange-peel appearance to a moderate, “cottage cheese” appearance to a “quilted mattress” look with severe dimpling and indentation.

How does QWO work?
It’s not fully understood how QWO works in moderate to severe cellulite. The enzymes in QWO—called collagenases—are believed to target a structural cause under your skin.
It’s thought that QWO works in 3 ways: releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen.
