1. What is Qwo®?
QWO is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for the treatment of moderate to severe cellulite in the
buttocks of adult women.
There are a multitude of ways women have tried to reduce their cellulite. With QWO, women and their aesthetic specialists can choose the first and only FDA-approved injectable available that treats cellulite in the butts of adult women.
2. How does QWO Cellulite Treatment work?
Enzymes called collagenases target the structural causes under the skin, where cellulite starts. It’s thought
that QWO works by releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new
collagen. How QWO works in moderate to severe cellulite is not fully understood.
3. Is QWO a surgical procedure?
No. QWO is an injectable treatment option that is thought to target a primary structural cause of cellulite—
the fibrous septae. The exact mechanism for the treatment of moderate to severe cellulite is unknown.

Your doctor will determine if you are an appropriate candidate for QWO.
5. Can QWO be used to treat cellulite in other areas besides the buttocks?

Aesthetics is continuing to investigate additional areas of treatment.

for a total of three treatment visits.

(hypersensitivity) reactions, including anaphylaxis, and injection site bruising. These are not all the side

FACTS ON CELLULITE:
9. What is cellulite?
Cellulite is a localized alteration in the contour of the skin that has been reported in approximately 90% of adult women of all races
10. What Causes Cellulite?
Over time, three completely normal things can happen. 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.
11. Who Gets Cellulite?
Women are more likely to have cellulite than men, and it affects women of all shapes, sizes, ages and races.
12. Why Aren't Men Prone To Getting Cellulite?
Men have thicker skin than women do, and their collagen bands are oriented in a crisscross fashion, essentially eliminating the ability of the fat lobules to bulge through. If a man is given estrogen hormones (as in some cancer treatments), they can develop cellulite if there is enough fat.
13. Are Fat and Cellulite The Same?
Fat is not cellulite and does not cause it, but fat cells getting bigger between fibrous bands under the skin can contribute to a bumpy appearance
