QWO® Cellulite Treatment

in New Jersey

Do you desire smooth, round butt contours but have uneven, dimpled skin in the area? If so, you’re not alone. The majority of women will experience some degree of cellulite formation in their lifetime. Men can also develop cellulite, but it is far less common.

While harmless, cellulite can be frustrating and impossible to eliminate with diet and exercise. Fortunately, QWO® offers a quick and easy method of treating cellulite.

QWO® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable clinically proven to reduce cellulite in the buttocks..

Have a Question

What is QWO?

QWO® is an injection that breaks down the fibers that form cellulite. It can treat moderate to severe cases of cellulite in the buttocks for adult women.

This safe and effective FDA-approved cellulite treatment allows you to achieve smooth, dimple-free butt contours without the need for invasive surgical procedures.

Am I a candidate for QWO® cellulite treatments?

If you have moderate to severe cellulite in your buttocks or thighs, you are a potential candidate for QWO® cellulite treatment. Ideal candidates are in good health and have realistic expectations of their results.

What causes cellulite?

Fibrous bands of tissue naturally connect your muscles and skin. Cellulite forms when there is excess fat between the skin and muscle, and the fibrous tissues grow and tighten around the fat deposits. This creates a ‘cottage cheese’ appearance with dimples, lumps, and depressions in your skin.

The exact causes of cellulite are not well understood, but this condition may be linked to hormonal changes that affect collagen production and blood circulation.

How does QWO® remove cellulite?

QWO® cellulite injections use enzymes called collagenases to target cellulite. These enzymes are naturally found in your body, but they aren’t in high enough concentrations to address cellulite. Cellulite reduction injections contain high concentrations of these enzymes, which break down the targeted cellulite-causing proteins.

QWO® contains two separate enzymes that break down specific structural collagen found in cellulite. These enzymes break down the collagen protein and allow your skin to smooth out.

This injectable cellulite treatment may also redistribute fat cells and stimulate healthy collagen growth as well. This process not only removes unwanted cellulite but may also prevent new cellulite from forming.

How many cellulite removal injections will I need?

Most patients will get a series of three QWO® injections, with each treatment spaced three weeks apart. In some cases, Dr. Friedlander may recommend further treatments to produce ideal results.

Are QWO® treatments painful?

Most patients experience little to no pain during or after their cellulite removal treatment. The injections are delivered using a fine needle, which may feel like a slight pinch. This is similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments.

Bruising is common, and swelling or firmness may occur following your injection, but these symptoms should resolve within a short period.

What is recovery like after cellulite reduction treatment with QWO®?

Cellulite removal injections require no downtime, so you can return to all your daily activities immediately after treatment.

Bruising or itching may make sitting slightly uncomfortable for a couple of days. These side effects are usually minor and easily dealt with. If necessary, bruising can be addressed with cold compresses or over-the-counter medications.

When will I see my QWO® results?

Minor results should become visible a few days after your first cellulite treatment. Most patients will not see significant results until a week after their third injection.

The final results will take three to four more weeks to develop as the proteins that cause cellulite break down and new healthy collagen forms.

How long do QWO® results last?

Current studies suggest that QWO® results last for at least several years. More information is being gathered on the long-term benefits of QWO® by researchers and plastic surgeons.

How much does QWO® cellulite treatment cost in New Jersey?

The cost of your QWO® treatment will be largely based on how many injections you need. Your cellulite treatment costs may also vary depending on the fees charged by the treatment facility and surgeon.

Your plastic surgeon will provide you with a personalized cellulite treatment cost before you schedule your QWO® cellulite treatment.

Are there other cellulite treatments available?

Yes. QWO® treats cellulite on the buttocks, and Cellfina® can target cellulite on the buttocks and thighs.

Can other treatments be combined with cellulite removal?

To address related concerns, some popular treatments include:

  • CoolSculpting®
    • This can address unwanted fat from areas such as the abdomen, thighs, and hips.
    • This can improve your muscle tone and burn unwanted fat.
  • Morpheus8 Body treatments
    • This can eliminate, tighten, and strengthen your skin while addressing unwanted fat.

Is QWO® safe?

QWO® is considered very safe. The formula has been extensively tested and certified as safe by the FDA. Minor side effects like bruising, itching, or swelling can occur after your injections, but these side effects are usually minor and temporary.

In rare cases, patients may have an allergic reaction to QWO® injections. If this occurs, contact your doctor and go to the nearest hospital.

Symptoms of an allergic reaction include:

  • Hives
  • Trouble breathing
  • Low blood pressure
  • Swollen face
