QWO™ Injections for Cellulite

Dr. William Koenig and Dr. Ashley Amalfi are excited to offer the first and only FDA-approved injectable used to treat moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. Cellulite is a common aesthetic condition affecting almost 90% of women. Several therapies have been used in an attempt to treat cellulite, but have had less than desirable results. Enter QWO! QWO is an enzyme that dissolves the fibrous septae that cause cellulite, resulting in smoother skin. QWO effectively targets the underlying cause of skin dimpling and improves the appearance of cellulite in as little as 3 treatments.

How it Works

QWO is made from enzymes called collagenases. These enzymes are thought to target the structural causes under the skin, where cellulite starts, to release the fibrous bands, redistribute fat cells, and stimulate the growth of new collagen.

Where Can I have QWO™ injected?

QWO injections are FDA-approved to treat cellulite on the buttocks.

How Many Treatments are Needed?

This will be discussed during your consultation. However, most women receive 3 treatments, each spaced 3 weeks apart.

When Will I See Results?

On average, patients see results 3 weeks after treatment. *Individual results may vary.

What is the Recovery Like?

Most patients reported bruising following their first treatment. The bruising can last up to three weeks but each patient will heal differently.

How long does QWO for cellulite last?

The FDA-approved treatment for moderate to severe cellulite may last permanently. *Individual results may vary.

What is the cost of QWO Injections?

The cost of QWO injections for cellulite will be discussed during your initial consultation. For more information, see our Plastic Surgery Costs page.

Call 585.244.1000 to schedule your consultation to see if QWO injections are right for you!
