QWO FDA-Approved Cellulite Treatment
A Permanent Solution for Severe and Moderately Severe Cellulite.
Now Available at Radiance Medspa Hartford | Avon CT
Radiance Medspa has been a leader in eliminating cellulite with our Cellfina system which provides permanent removal of dimpled cellulite and is great for large numbers. It is minimally invasive. We are so excited to be chosen as a facility to launch the FDA approved QWO because it will provide the same type of results with a series of simple injections into the dimple. It is designed to treat 25 or fewer dimples. Regardless of how few or how many dimples you need to treat Radiance Medspa now has you completely covered.
What is QWO?
QWO, also known as collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes, is the world’s first FDA-approved injectable treatment for moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks. QWO contains collagen-degrading enzymes that dissolve the fibrous bands connecting skin to muscle. These fibrous bands (septae) are seen as the root cause of cellulite because they pull your skin down, leading to the visible bulging of fat tissues. By dissolving the septae, QWO safely smoothes skin tissue and eliminates cellulite.

Patients will typically require up to 3 treatments at 21-day intervals for optimal results. Based on clinical research, the treatment results are impressive, and last for over a year. However, it’s worth noting that this procedure is only suitable for cellulite — not for skin laxity, which is often misconstrued as cellulite. QWO can only treat cellulite divots caused by septae, the fibrous bands connecting skin to muscle.
What Happens During the QWO Treatment?
During the consultation, our expert clinician examines your skin, determines if you have moderate to severe cellulite, discusses your cosmetic goals, and curates the ideal treatment plan. The QWO treatment must be finely-calibrated to address your specific concerns and cellulite presence.
After the examination, she will mark the treatment areas with a pen and then inject QWO into the targeted regions. The treatment is quick, simple, and painless, and there’s no need for anesthesia. Since your buttocks have more fat than your face, the injection will hurt a lot less than Botox or most other injectables.
What Is Recovery After QWO Like?
QWO is a quick and painless procedure, concluding within 30 minutes with no downtime. You can resume all of your daily activities immediately after the injections. You should expect bruising for at least two weeks — the severity of the bruising depending on the number of dimples injected. If you experience any soreness, you should avoid vigorous activities for a day or two. For optimal long-term results, you’ll need to repeat the injections approximately 3 times, each treatment session being done at 21-day intervals.
