Everything you need to know about our QWO cellulite treatment
Collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aees or QWO is an FDA-approved injectable treatment to eliminate moderate to severe cellulite in women in the buttocks and thigh area. It is designed to non-invasively smooth out dimples without surgery, lipo, or lasers. QWO targets and dissolves the fibrous septae bands - structural bands holding the cellulite in place.
QWO increases new collagen production, thickens skins, and helps to redistribute fat cells for an all-over smoother appearance. Regardless of weight, 90 percent of women experience cellulite. QWO is ideal for women between the ages of 18-78 with moderate to severe cellulite in Grade 2 or Grade 3.
During your consultation, one of our skin experts will determine how much laxity your skin has, which may determine if other skin tightening options are needed.
Cellulite grading is as follows:
Each session takes approximately ten minutes and includes 12 to 24 injections over the treatment area. Once QWO is injected, the bands begin to release their hold of the cellulite dimple for an all-over smooth appearance by targeting the septae bands.
You can return to your daily activities right away; however, depending on the number of cellulite dimples you had injected, you can expect significant bruising over the entire treated area. However, the bruising is not caused by traumatic bruising from needle pokes; instead, it is the collagen remodeling process working. While the bruising may be unsightly, it is not painful nor inflamed. Your three treatments are spaced about three weeks apart, so you will want to wait three weeks after your final treatment to bare your buttocks in your new bikini.
After your third consecutive treatment, your results are semi-permanent. When combined with a nutritious diet and consistent exercise routine, you will enjoy long-lasting results for up to four years. For optimal results, you may want to get maintenance treatments every three months.
You are known to make an entrance, so make them watch you leave, and leave a lasting impression with a cellulite-free derriere.

Complications are rare with QWO, but some side effects include post-treatment bruising, redness, and possible bleeding at the injection sites.
Every treatment is uniquely tailored for our clients. Therefore, price factors will differ based on the size of the area needing treatment and if more than three treatments are necessary to provide optimal results. Typically, 12-24 cellulite dimples are treated per session, so more sessions are needed if the cellulite is more severe.
QWO is a cosmetic treatment that is not covered by health insurance.
QWO has clinically been shown to reduce the appearance of cellulite in the buttocks significantly. Unfortunately, there is not a single treatment that can completely dissipate all signs of cellulite; however, QWO is showing tremendous promise with results and many satisfied clients.
QWO is FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks and thigh area for women. At So Vous, we use QWO to treat the buttock area only. During your consultation, you may discuss off-brand features of using QWO.
Both treatments are FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe cellulite in women's buttocks and thigh areas. QWO is injected into the fibrous septae bands to produce smoother, firmer-looking buttocks, with minimal recovery and permanent results. Cellfina cuts the septae bands with a needle and offers long-lasting results for up to three years. However, Cellfina has a possibility of scarring, uses large needles, and has extensive recovery.
