Qwo Injections

Cellulite appears in 9 out of 10 women with some starting as young as puberty and has been an ongoing battle for years. Many factors play into what causes cellulite, for some it’s hormonal others it may be genetics. However, having a more sculpted appearance can improve your confidence.

What is QWO?

QWO is the first of its kind injectable to prescription medicine used to treat moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. Without having to go under the knife this procedure does not have any downtime. Like many injectables, there may be site bruising. However, Dr. Shirazi’s knowledge and expertise will put you at ease. 

How it works

Although it is not fully understood how QWO works, we do know that it has shown great results in treating moderate to severe cellulite. The enzymes in QWO, called collagenases, are believed to target a structural cause under the skin and break down the buildup of collagen in the fibrous cords. It’s thought that QWO works in 3 ways: releasing the tension within the fibrous cords, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen.

What is cellulite?

We have all heard cellulite referred to as “cottage cheese” and that’s because that is what it tends to look like. Although usually it is considered harmless and painless this dimpled skin condition can still hinder one’s confidence. 

Over time skin thins then the body begins to develop more fat cells between the fibrous cords that connect our skin to our muscles. Gradually these cells push up against the skin while the cords are being thickened and pulled down. This results in an uneven and dimpled surface of cellulite.

What to expect

During the initial consultation, a thorough review and evaluation of your medical and allergy history along with your present skin condition will be carried out. After identifying the treatment areas, we use a small needle to inject QWO. Because there isn’t any downtime and injections that are done in roughly 10 minutes this procedure is quick as it is simple and painless. With this noninvasive, clinically proven procedure, results are achievable in around 10 weeks.
