Qwo: Clinically Proven Injectable Treatment for Cellulite

We are now offering the latest cellulite injectable treatment, Qwo. This non-surgical treatment is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. There are 3 things that, together, contribute to cellulite: fibrous bands under the skin get thicker, skin thins, and fat cells get larger–pushing against the skin and creating dimples. Qwo is made of an enzyme called colostridium histolyticum that helps to break down the fibrous bands that pull down on the skin causing the appearance of dimpling. 

  • For best results, 3 treatments spaced 3 weeks apart are recommended.
  • Treatments take 10-15 minutes.
  • No downtime! Post procedure bruising is expected and slight tenderness in the treated areas for 24-48 hours.

Please refer to the important safety information about Qwo.

The treatment that is best for you depends on your unique needs and desires, and the experts at UR Medicine can help you make the best choice.
