For celluite, QWO is a first.
Cellulite is a localized alteration in the contour of the skin that has been reported in approximately 90% of adult women of all races and ethnicities. Cellulite is caused by three completely normal things. Fat cells get larger, skin gets thinner and a little looser and the fibrous bands under the skin’s surface get thicker, leading to a dimpled appearance. Cellulite affects women of all shapes, sizes, ages, and races. There are three “types or grades” of cellulite that we can treat to help reduce the appearance of cellulite. QWO is indicated for the treatment of moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women.
Grade 1, or mild: There is an "orange-peel" appearance, with between 1 and 4 superficial depressions, and a slightly "draped" or sagging appearance to the skin.
Grade 2, or moderate: There are between five and nine medium-depth depressions, a "cottage cheese" appearance, and the skin appears moderately draped.
Grade 3, or severe: There is a "mattress" appearance, with 10 or more deep depressions, and the skin is severely draped.
QWO is injected subcutaneously in the treatment area. Injections take about 10 minutes or less.
- A treatment area is defined as a single buttock receiving up to 12 injections of QWO.
- A treatment visit may consist of up to 2 treatment areas.
Treatment should be repeated every 21 days for 3 treatment visits for optimal results for cellulite reduction. The end result is an improvement in the appearance of cellulite.
