How Do QWO Injections Work? 

QWO contains enzymes called collagenases that smooth away cellulite in 3 ways: 

  • Releasing fibrous bands 
  • Redistributing fat cells 
  • Stimulating new collagen growth 

One of the main causes of cellulite is the presence of fibrous bands that pull down on your skin’s surface from below and cause a dimpled look. Cellfina®, another of our favorite cellulite treatments, cuts the bands with a microblade to release these dimples. Similarly, QWO breaks down the collagen forming the bands. This allows the fat under the skin to become more evenly distributed throughout the area for a smoother skin surface.  

What Is It Like to Get QWO Injections? 

After determining your treatment areas, your medical spa provider will use a tiny needle to inject the product directly into specific dimples on your buttocks. Injections take as little as 10 minutes and are known to be pretty comfortable—around the same comfort level as BOTOX® Cosmetic or other injectables. 

What Is Recovery Like After QWO Injections? 

Most people don’t need any downtime after the treatment and can jump back into their usual routines. You may have some swelling that lasts for a few days and bruising that lasts for a few weeks, but this shouldn’t keep you from your typical activities.  

Are QWO Injections Safe? 

QWO injections are FDA-approved for the safe treatment of cellulite on the thighs and buttocks. At LJC, your treatment will always be performed by an experienced injector who is trained and credentialed to administer your injections safely.  

What Kinds of Results Can I Expect After QWO Injections? 

Most people see their best results after 3 sessions spaced about 3 weeks apart—typically a 10-week transformation from start to finish. You can expect fewer, shallower dimples and a backside that looks smoother and more even.
