What is QWO®?

QWO is the first and only FDA-approved prescription medication on the market that treats the cellulite on the buttocks of adult females. This injectable contains enzymes called collagenases that target structures underneath your skin. It releases fibrous bands, redistributes fat cells, and promotes new collagen growth.

Cellulite develops in about 90% of all adult women. You begin to show signs of it when your skin becomes thinner and your fat cells become larger. When the fibrous bands underneath your skin begin to thicken, they cause tension, which creates the dimpling appearance known as cellulite.

Though weight loss and exercise can help reduce the appearance of cellulite, these efforts typically don’t make it completely disappear. In some cases, your weight loss can cause skin laxity, which can actually make your cellulite more severe. That’s why considering the QWO cellulite treatment at Concord MedSpa might be an excellent option for you.

How do QWO treatments work?

QWO is a minimally invasive procedure that Concord MedSpa recommends you have three times with a 21-day break between treatments.

Once your specialist injects the treatment, it works with your body’s enzymes to ultimately smooth out your skin in the targeted area on your buttocks.

The treatment only takes about 10 minutes, and you can get back to your normal, daily routine by the next day. By the end of your third treatment, you should see a considerable difference that lasts a year or longer.

Is QWO safe?

At Concord MedSpa, your medical professional monitors you when using the QWO prescription medicine. Though it can provide treatment for moderate-to-severe cellulite in your buttocks, you shouldn’t receive it if you’re allergic to collagenase or any of the other ingredients in QWO, which your provider can educate you about.

You should also shy away from this treatment if you have any type of infection in the targeted area. You also aren’t eligible if you’re pregnant.

Common side effects to be expected include:

  • Bruising at the injection site
  • Areas of hardness
  • Soreness
  • Itching
  • Redness
  • Discoloration
  • Swelling
  • Warmth

These conditions are normal and should naturally subside after a short period of time.
