Cellulite Treatment

Introducing QWO!

We are happy to announce that we now offer QWO, an FDA-approved prescription medication used to treat moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. About 9 out of 10 women will have cellulite in their lifetime. It is a natural occurrence that before now, did not have many solutions that delivered consistent results.

What is QWO? 

QWO is a non-surgical, injectable treatment that is performed in a series of three office-based sessions to deliver maximum results. In clinical studies, women received the three treatments of QWO, 21 days apart. Visible results may be seen after 10 weeks. QWO injections take around ten minutes to perform, and patients can enjoy no downtime following treatment.

How does it work? 

It’s thought that QWO works in 3 ways: releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen. It’s believed that QWO breaks down the buildup of collagen in the fibrous bands.
