An example of before and after a patients QWO cellulite treatment in Culver City.

What is QWO?

This is an injectable treatment of a drug called collagenase clostridium – histolyticum-aaes.

When the FDA approved the treatment, it was a huge deal because these injectable, non-invasive treatments are not very common in terms of new products.

How does QWO work as a cellulite treatment?

Medical science believes that QWO works by injecting enzymes into the dimples of the buttocks to break down the collagen fibers that create cellulite.

This treatment may also redistribute fat cells while stimulating new collagen growth.

What parts of the body work best for QWO cellulite treatments?

The FDA approved this treatment to help women with cellulite found on their buttocks.

Who can get a QWO cellulite treatment in Culver City?

You can get this treatment if you are:

  • 18 years or older

  • A woman
  • Suffering from moderate to severe cellulite in your buttocks

Talk to your chosen clinician or doctor to see if you are a good candidate for QWO.

What happens during an appointment for QWO cellulite treatments in Culver City?

Patients typically start to see initial results within 28 days after the final treatment. A full treatment course may last anywhere from 70 to 90 days.

Every person’s situation is unique, so the results may be different for each person. For right now, we have the clinical trial results to guide us as to the results. But they do look promising.

How long do the effects of QWO cellulite treatment last?

Previous cellulite treatments last as long as three years.

Because QWO is so new, medical science has not been able to gauge how long the effects last. Clinical trials show that the results last for at least a year, and may extend two years, following the full course of treatment.
