Qwo is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women.

A non-surgical treatment clinically proven to reduce moderate to severe cellulite.Injections take as little as 10 minutes.Visible results may be achieved in 10 weeks.Women typically receive three treatments 21 days apart.

  • Under the surface of the skin is a pattern of fibrous bands that connect the skin to the muscle. Over time, some of these fibrous bands thicken, creating tension that pushes fat up. This causes the surface dimples commonly referred to as cellulite.

  • Collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes, or QWO, is a mixture of two naturally occurring collagenase enzymes, AUX-I and AUX-II, that is injected into the skin under the dimple.

  • These enzymes target Type 1 and Type 3 collagen found in fibrous bands and work together to break down the buildup of collagen that causes cellulite.

  • When QWO is injected, the fibrous bands are broken. It is thought this may release the dimple and smooth the surface of the skin.
