QWO Injectable Cellulite Treatment

Qwo Cellulite Website (1)At Supriya Aesthetic Dermatology, cellulite isn't something you have to live with. The Qwo® cellulite injectable treatment is one of the most effective treatments for smoothing dimples and tightening skin in the buttocks for patients in West Palm Beach, Jupiter, and the rest of South Florida.

Where does cellulite come from?

Cellulite dimples and indentations can appear on anyone, regardless of diet and exercise. Even the most toned athletes may have cellulite appear on the buttocks. Cellulite is not an indication of excess fat—it is simply a result of how your body stores fat deposits in certain areas. Underneath the skin, fibrous cords of connective tissue secure the dermis to the muscle. In some areas, these cords align in a vertical pattern with uneven sections between them, creating small pockets in which fat deposits may collect. The fat cells push up toward the surface producing that characteristic lumpiness associated with cellulite. 

What is the QWO® Cellulite Injectable Treatment?

Qwo (a.k.a. collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes) cellulite treatment presents a simple, injectable solution to reduce or remove cellulite. It is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. 

How is the QWO® Cellulite Treatment performed?

QWO is directly injected into cellulite dimples in the buttocks by Dr. Supriya Tomar. Up to 12 injections for a single treatment, or 24 injections for two treatments will be used. Once injected, the enzyme in QWO is thought to target collagen types 1 and 3 to release the fibrous septae, ultimately releasing the dimple and making the skin appear smooth. In clinical trials, QWO was injected three times, each 21 days apart, to produce results in patients.

What results can I expect from QWO?

Patients may see an improvement as early as three weeks after their injections. However, the improvement continues for 2-3 months, and most patients require more than one treatment cycle of QWO.


Who is a candidate for the QWO® Cellulite injectable?

If you’re experiencing cellulite in the buttocks and wish to reduce or eliminate its appearance, you will be a suitable candidate for QWO injectable cellulite treatment.

What is the recovery like following a QWO treatment?

Patients can expect moderate to severe bruising to occur at the injection site, and it may stay visible for up to two weeks following the treatment. Patients may also experience tenderness in the treated area, however, in clinical trials patients were able to resume daily activities. So if you are planning a vacation, it is best to schedule your final treatment no less than three weeks before you go to avoid visible bruising—particularly if you are planning on wearing a swimsuit.
