What is the QWO Cellulite Injection?
QWO is the first and only injectable that’s been FDA-approved for the treatment of cellulite. Previously, effective treatments for cellulite were few and far between, since most treatments fail to target the actual cause of cellulite: the fibrous septae. The fibrous septae are strands of tissue that connect the skin to the underlying tissue. When the fibrous septae tighten, they’ll pinch the skin’s surface and pull it downward, creating the dimpled appearance known as cellulite. By releasing these bands of tissue, the skin is released, smoothing out the appearance of cellulite. The QWO targets and releases the fibrous septae to alleviate cellulite.

- No downtime required
- Long-lasting results
What Can I Expect During My QWO Treatment?
The QWO treatment begins with the application of a topical anesthetic to the treatment area. Once the area is numbed, QWO injections will be administered.

What Results Can I Expect from QWO?
