Injectable treatments have soared in popularity for many different reasons. They are less expensive than surgery and can often provide dramatically improved aesthetic results. Plus, they do not require anywhere near as much recovery or downtime. 

Traditionally, injectable treatments are reserved for products like BOTOX and dermal fillers, which aim to rejuvenate the appearance of facial skin. But QWO is the first FDA-approved injectable to expand into cellulite treatment, a condition that was previously only addressable through topical treatments.

Cellulite can develop nearly anywhere on the body, but it is most common in some problematic regions like the buttocks. Luckily, QWO is explicitly formulated to treat cellulite in a woman’s buttocks. 

Why Do We Need QWO?

More than 90% of women in industrialized countries have some form of cellulite, according to Scientific American. This massively contrasts with men who only experience cellulite 10% of the time. For a long time, women have been searching for a reliable method of cellulite reduction.

Cellulite forms when pockets of fat in the body are constricted by fibrous bands of connective tissue. The tension that forms is what causes the dimpling of the surface skin. So, if you can treat the connective tissue, you can treat the cellulite.

By injecting specific enzymes called collagenases into the skin where our fat is stored, these fibrous bands are broken down, releasing the tension and creating a smoother appearance on the surface of the skin — effectively eliminating your cellulite. 

Is QWO Right for Me?

QWO is a highly specialized formula developed specifically for women who have moderate and severe cellulite on their derrieres. Here is a list of guidelines to see if QWO is a good choice for you:

  • You must be 18 years of age or older.
  • You should not be pregnant or planning to become pregnant.
  • You should not be breastfeeding or planning to breastfeed. 
  • You should not be allergic to collagenase or other QWO ingredients.
  • You have a clear understanding of what QWO can achieve.

We recommend that everyone brings a list of questions to their consultation with California Dermatology Care so that they can leave the visit as informed as possible. You will feel a lot more confident in your decision-making process when you have all of the information you need.

Is QWO Safe?

QWO is FDA-approved and was rigorously tested on more than 1,800 women. During the study, many women and their aesthetic specialists agreed that there was an improvement to the cellulite that had been on display. QWO is considered to be an extremely safe and low-risk procedure.

How Should I Prepare for QWO Treatment?

QWO is a nonsurgical procedure, so there is no need for lengthy preparations or planning. You will not need topical numbing agents or anesthesia, and you can maintain all of your everyday routines and responsibilities without missing a beat. 

Make sure to disclose all of your medical history to our medical professionals so they can create a safe and effective treatment plan. If any lifestyle or medication adjustments need to be made, we will let you know precisely what needs to happen and when. 

This is primarily a concern for patients who are prone to blood clotting or other issues with bleeding.

What Is a QWO Procedure Like?

The first step of any QWO procedure is to thoroughly clean the injection site. This helps prevent infection and protects your results. Once the injection site has been thoroughly cleaned, your medical professional will carefully inject the QWO solution into your buttocks.

Bandaging will be applied to prevent excessive bleeding. This step marks the completion of the QWO treatment — the entire procedure can be completed within ten minutes.

For best results, you will likely need a series of three shots spaced 21 days apart. That means less than 30 minutes of total procedure time to significantly improve cellulite on your buttocks. 

Can QWO Be Combined with Other Procedures?

Since QWO is such a minimally invasive procedure, you are free to combine it with virtually any other treatment you would like. Whether you aim to further improve the contours of your body or address a facial concern, here is a list of some possible combination treatments:

Coolsculpting — Eliminate unwanted fat with concentrated cooling technology. This can help improve your lower contours and accent your newly smoothed buttocks.

Emsculpt — By tightening the muscles around your abdomen, you can get a newly improved appearance on both your front and back sides. 

Vein Treatment — If you have unsightly veins throughout your body, you may feel as though the overall aesthetic of your appearance is off. Rid yourself of them and enjoy every part of your physique.

Liposonix — Remove local deposits of fat with this highly specialized technology overseen by D. William Ting. A great accompaniment to your newly improved backside. 

RF Skin Tightening — If you find yourself with a bit of droopy skin that is distracting from your smooth butt, then you might want to consider this skin tightening treatment to help get things back in place.

BOTOX — Keep the injectable improvement going with the most popular aesthetic treatment in history. Eliminate wrinkles and turn heads with both a smooth derriere and face. 

Dermal Fillers — If you have some volume loss (on your face or body), then dermal fillers are one of the best ways to rejuvenate that youthful, full appearance.
