What is Cellulite?

Nine out of ten women will have cellulite in their lifetime. Cellulite is not a person’s fault. Cellulite is not fat. Cellulite is not caused by how much you eat or because you aren't exercising. Cellulite dimples are created by three things.

  • Thin skin 
  • Fat cell enlarge and push against the skin 
  • Fibrous Bands under the skin thicken and cause tension

All three things create cellulite dimpling on the buttock

What is QWO?

QWO is the first and only FDA-approved non-surgical injectable cellulite treatment. QWO is designed to treat moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of women by targeting the fibrous septae - the structural band that holds the cellulite in place. QWO is designed to perform as follows:

  • Redistribute your fat cells
  • Stimulate the growth of new collagen
  • Releases fibrous bands that hold the fat cells in place

While there is not one single treatment that will completely remove all cellulite; an exciting factor of QWO is that the injectable can be part of a personal treatment plan for you. During your consultation for cellulite treatment Philadelphia plastic surgeon, Dr. Ran Stark, will create a procedure plan that will outline how many treatments it may take to achieve your ideal look.

How do I know if QWO is right for me?

When fat gets deposited between your skin and muscle, the bands of collagen (septae) that tether the skin to the muscle will tighten around the fat and make your skin look dimpling or have divots. Ninety percent of women will experience cellulite regardless of their weight.

And, while cellulite is not only a female issue, men will not experience cellulite as often because the septae beneath their skin form differently than how it forms in women.

Cellulite Treatment

QWO is cutting-edge and designed to help in the fight against cellulite. The best part is there is no cutting. QWO is an FDA-approved injectable for women to treat moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks. QWO benefits include:

  • No downtime
  • Non-surgical and non-invasive
  • Improves the texture of your skin
  • Improves the appearance of cellulite in the buttocks
  • QWO treatments can be repeated for an optimal improvement plan

While individual results will vary, the exciting clinical trials show women are experiencing long-term results.

QWO Procedure

Each QWO session takes about 10 minutes in duration. Dr. Stark may treat up to two treatment areas or 24 injections. The enzymes in QWO target the septae to release the dimple or divot and give the skin an overall smooth appearance. You will have a total of three QWO sessions, three weeks apart to reach the maximum effect.
