QWO is the first and only approved injectable for the reduction of moderate to severe cellulite.

Bellaire Dermatology is excited to offer this unique treatment to our Houston and Bellaire patients. 


What Is QWO?

As we age, our skin thins and fat cells enlarge and begin to push against the skin. Then, the fibrous bands under the skin thicken and cause tension resulting in dimples.

QWO is the first and only FDA approved injectable for the treatment of moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women.

Together, there are three things that can cause cellulite’s dimples: over time, skin thins, fat cells enlarge and push against the skin, and the fibrous bands under the skin’s surface thicken and cause tension.

How Does It Work?

QWO is made up of enzymes called collagenases. It is thought that the enzymes 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.

Is There Downtime After Treatment?

After your QWO treatment there is no downtime, though some patients may experience some bruising that should resolve on its own.

How Soon Will I See Results?

Studies have shown visible results within 10 weeks.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Our professional providers will work with you to create a tailored treatment plan unique to your goals and needs. However, generally speaking, most people receive 3 treatments spaced 21 days apart.
