Qwo® Injectable Cellulite Treatment
We’re proud to be the first in Fresno to offer Qwo® (collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes)—the first FDA-approved injectable for moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women.
What is Qwo®?
Qwo is a prescription medicine used to treat moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. It is a completely noninvasive cellulite treatment that requires no downtime.
How Does Qwo® Reduce Cellulite?
The enzymes in Qwo—called collagenases—are believed to target a structural cause under the skin. It’s thought that Qwo works in 3 ways: releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Your provider will evaluate you and develop a personalized treatment plan designed specifically for you, which will include the number of treatments recommended for you. We offer Qwo in 3 different packages: Mini, Mild and Moderate. Each treatment visit may include up to 2 treatment areas. Qwo injections will be given 21 days apart for 3 treatment visits.
Are There Any Side Effects?
The most common side effects of Qwo include injection site bruising, pain, areas of hardness, itching, redness, discoloration, swelling and warmth in the treatment area.
Some series side effects may include allergic (hypersensitivity) reactions, including anaphylaxis.
