What Is Cellulite?

Cellulite is a nearly universal problem for women affecting more than 90% of all women. Cellulite is an unevenness in the skin surface characterized by dimples and loss of a smooth appearance. Cellulite has many causes but primarily affects women and is most often seen on the thighs and butt.

QWO Treats the Fibrous Septae and Improves Cellulite

QWO is the first and only FDA-approved injectable that treats cellulite. QWO is an enzyme that dissolves the fibrous septae that cause cellulite which results in smoother skin.

Fibrous Septae and Cellulite

Enzymatic Subcision and Remodeling (ESR)

Enzymatic Subcision and Remodeling (ESR) describes the process whereby enzymes degrade or dissolve the collagen component of fibrous septae thus releasing the bands causing cellulite. QWO is an injectable formulation of two enzymes that degrade the fibrous septae. QWO is an enzyme called collagenase, which is derived from a bacterium called Clostridium Histolyticum (CCH or QWO). QWO is the injectable formulations of two enzymes that degrade Type 1 and Type 3 collagen in specific tissues to create smoother skin.

In addition to releasing the bands, these enzymes stimulate the production of newer collagen molecules that improve the appearance of the skin in a process called neocollagenesis.

QWO Treatments

QWO is a simple office treatment where it is injected into cellulite dimples. QWO comes in 2 different sizes and is priced accordingly. QWO requires three treatment sessions spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart to get the desired effect. For optimal results, we recommend combining QWO with Endermologie, which helps smooth the skin and speed results and recovery.

QWO Side Effects

Post-treatment bruising is the primary side effect of QWO. Pain and swelling tend to be minimum. Bruising can be decreased with treatments using tranexamic acid (TXA) formulations, Bromolin, or Arnica.


Patients see improvement at about three weeks after treatment, with improvement continuing as collagen remodeling continues. Three treatments have been shown to be necessary to achieve optimal results.
