What is Qwo?

Qwo is a cosmetic injectable that has been FDA-approved to target cellulite of the buttocks. The product is made of enzymes that break down the fibrous strands that pull on the skin and cause the dimpled “orange peel” appearance of cellulite. It also redistributes fat cells and stimulates new collagen growth so that the skin becomes thicker and less loose, which also helps with the appearance of cellulite. Qwo cellulite reduction treatments in Santa Monica are done in approximately three cycles scheduled 3-4 weeks apart, with results getting better and better over the months.

Am I a Candidate for Qwo Treatments?

Ideal candidates for this method of cellulite reduction in Santa Monica:

  • Are not allergic to the product’s ingredients
  • Are not allergic to collagenase
  • Do not have an active infection in the area
  • Do not have any kind of bleeding condition
  • Are not pregnant or breastfeeding (or planning to)

Where Does Cellulite Come From?

Cellulite is a frustrating condition that has many causes and affects 80% of women. It looks like a cluster of dimpled skin and many people feel they have to hide it. This condition develops when fat (which we all have) becomes trapped between fibrous bands and then pushes upward into the skin. Many believe that only overweight people have cellulite, but this isn’t true. Nearly anyone can have cellulite, no matter their weight, BMI, age, race, lifestyle, or body type. Cellulite is often genetic and can be accelerated because fat cells enlarge and the skin thins out as we age. 


What to Expect from Qwo

Qwo treatments are very convenient and fast. On the day of your appointment, we will clean and prep your skin, and then it will be marked to help guide your specialist. The injections will be administered, taking about 10-15 minutes. After the injections are complete, you can go right back to your regular day. 

The most common side effect is bruising, and you may also notice tenderness in the area temporarily.

It’s important for those interested in Qwo to be aware that results are gradual. The earliest you will see results is three weeks, but it may take even longer.
