If you suffer from skin dimples that impacts your self-confidence and ability to wear the clothing you want, it’s time to consider using QWO to improve the appearance of your cellulite.
At Glow Aesthetic Center, we offer QWO injections to people who want to treat their cellulite with an FDA-approved medication. Here’s what you need to know.
What is Cellulite?
Cellulite, also known as butt dimples or cottage cheese skin, is a common condition often found in women. Women of all heights, sizes, and ethnic groups can experience cellulite.
While cellulite is harmless, it usually doesn’t go away on its own. Many people with cellulite feel self-conscious when undressing in front of someone else, or they may avoid clothing (like bathing suits and shorts) that expose their dimpled skin.
A fibrous connective tissue known as fibrous septae is located under the skin. As the skin thins naturally due to aging, the fibrous septae thicken and push against your skin (along with your fat cells), creating the appearance of dimples.
What is QWO?
QWO is a prescription medication used to treat cellulite. It’s an injectable treatment that can improve the appearance of moderate to severe skin dimpling.
When your practitioner administers your QWO injection, enzymes called collagenases enter the area under your skin.
These enzymes target collagen types 1 and 3 to release the fibrous septae, the tissue that’s responsible for producing cellulite.
Once the fibrous septae dissolves, this removes the barrier responsible for producing butt dimples. The result is smoother skin with fewer dimples.
The enzymes in QWO injections also work to redistribute your fat cells and increase the production of collagen, both of which improve the texture and appearance of your skin.
It takes time for the enzymes in your QWO injections to work. They don’t instantly dissolve the fibrous septae.
Instead, the process takes a few weeks. While you’ll likely notice results within a month after your first treatment, for the best results, you’ll need to complete the entire round of injections.
QWO injections may be used in the hips, buttocks, abdomen, and thighs.

What Can You Expect During Your QWO Treatment?
There’s no pain associated with QWO treatments and it’s a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment. Your practitioner will inject the medication directly into your cellulite.
You’re awake during your procedure, and there’s no need for anesthetic.
For the best results, you need to have two to three treatments. Each treatment should be spaced a month apart for optimal effectiveness.
Most people prefer to wear form-fitting clothing (like bike shorts or yoga pants) that supports the skin after their injections to minimize any discomfort.
What Side Effects are Associated with QWO?
Some of the side effects you may experience from QWO injections are:
- Pain and bruising at your injection site
- Hard areas
- Swelling, warmth, and discoloration at your treatment site
Most side effects resolve within two to three weeks.
One advantage of QWO is that there’s no downtime after your injection. The injections themselves take a few minutes; you only need to devote an hour or so to your QWO treatment.

Why Use QWO to Treat Your Cellulite?
Unfortunately, there are a lot of supposed cellulite treatments that do little to actually improve the appearance of your cellulite.
Since these treatments don’t address the fibrous septae that cause cellulite, they’re unlikely to reduce your dimpling.
QWO is the only FDA-approved injectable for treating cellulite. It literally dissolves the fibrous septae that causes cellulite; this means that it removes the component that actually produces your cellulite.
There are no other non-surgical treatments that are as effective at improving the appearance of cellulite.
The results from QWO injections are long-lasting. While your skin will continue to thin as you age, this process takes years.
Most individuals are good candidates for QWO injections. You should avoid QWO treatment if you’re allergic to collagenase (or any of the other injection ingredients) or if you have an infection in your treatment area.
Some individuals with bleeding disorders may not be good candidates for injections.
