Your Guide to QWO® Cellulite Injections

Liposuction fat and cellulite removal concept Cellulite is one thing that can hold us back from feeling our best when it matters most. Sometimes it keeps us from wearing our favorite shorts or hitting the beach. Although cellulite shouldn’t prevent anyone from feeling beautiful and confident, unfortunately, many still struggle with body image issues. In this case, safe and effective cellulite treatments are the answer. Cellulite is an attachment of the skin that creates a dimple. 

Whether in public or the privacy of your own home, you feel your best when you have a boost of confidence. QWO cellulite injections can help give your skin the look smooth look you deserve for the buttock region. Other areas of cellulite on legs can be treated with ThermiSmooth for radiofrequency tightening and acoustic massage. Thighs typically have looser skin so skin tightening is key there. 

What is QWO?

Since cellulite isn’t excess fat, exercise alone is an ineffective route to eliminating it. Other options can include invasive operations, but treatment for cellulite doesn’t always have to mean surgery. QWO is a minimally-invasive injection for moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks. This innovative medication is the only FDA-approved injectable for the treatment of cellulite.

What To Expect

During the consultation, you’ll discuss the areas of concern with a member of our aesthetic team to see the severity and location of the cellulite. Your provider will mark the areas that require treatment before injecting QWO. These injections will occur every 21 days, for a total of three sessions. The results may not be as noticeable at first, and there could be some side effects.

Side effects like pain, swelling, or bruising are possible after your injections. However, they are temporary and quite tolerable for most patients. Achieving your goal of having less visible cellulite can take up to 10 weeks before beginning to be evident, but the results are worth it.

Fortunately, after completing all three treatments, the results are expected to last at least a year. In some cases, the results may even be permanent. Talk to our team to learn more about the longevity of QWO injections. 

Can QWO Treat Other Areas?

Cellulite can occur in several different parts of our bodies. Currently, QWO is only approved for treating the buttocks area. Professionals are researching other treatment areas to assist spots beyond the buttocks. Our team can keep you updated regarding the latest treatment options.
