DermaCosmedica is excited to be offering QWO in our Hamilton, NJ medical spa. QWO is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for the treatment of moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. Utilizing enzymes called collagenases to target the structural causes under the skin, where cellulite starts, QWO works by releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen.

- A non-surgical treatment option clinically proven to reduce moderate to severe cellulite.
- QWO injections take as little as 10 minutes to complete.
What causes cellulite development?
Cellulite isn’t fat; it is not caused by a poor diet or exercise routine. Instead, cellulite is caused by skin thinning while fat cells enlarge and push against it. The fibrous bands under the skin thicken and cause the signature dimpling on your butt. The amount of cellulite you have can be based on your genes, body fat percentage, age, and the thickness of your skin. QWO is not currently available for male patients. However, women get cellulite at a much higher rate than men, making QWO a great option for them. While 80% and 90% of all women experience cellulite, only 10% of men do.
Is QWO right for me?
A consultation is required to determine if this treatment option is right for you. You should not utilize QWO if you are allergic to collagenase or to any of the ingredients in QWO, or have an active infection at the treatment area. The most common side effect of QWO is brusing around the injection site. 84% of patients experience bruising following treatment with QWO, usually resolving in two weeks. The risk of bruising can be lessened by avoiding medications, supplements, and foods that can thin the blood. Talk to your doctor to learn more about the side effects of QWO during your consultation.
