What is Cellulite?

To understand QWO shots, it helps to understand the basics of cellulite. To begin, almost every post-pubescent female struggles with some form of cellulite. The appearance of skin dimpling is most common in the buttocks, thighs, and abdomen. However, some women can develop it on their upper arms and breasts.

Despite what some people may think, cellulite is not always due to being overweight or because of obesity. Cellulite can occur in more than 90% of women, regardless of their body shape or weight. Instead, scientists now think cellulite occurs mostly because of hormones.

The Physiology of Cellulite

Fibrous bands of collagen known as fibrous septae are deep down in the skin’s dermis. They connect the skin to underlying muscles. This septae partition off lobes of fat in the sub-dermis. Cellulite forms when the bands of fibrous septae thicken and shrink. The deformity causes the fibers to tug down where they attach to skin. The tension causes lobes of fat to protrude around the septae, leading to the dimpled appearance of cellulite.

Cellulite is a harmless problem. It is, however, a big issue when it comes to self-esteem. Fortunately, QWO shots reduce cellulite without painful or invasive measures. 

How Does QWO Work?

QWO is a prescription medication. It is the first and only FDA cleared injectable to treat moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women.

Like Botox and Juvéderm, QWO is injected into the skin. Known as the “cellulite shot,” QWO reduces cellulite in the buttocks.

QWO contains an enzyme called Collagenase Clostridium Histolyticum (CCH.) As the name suggests, Collagenase is a naturally occurring enzyme responsible for breaking down collagen. QWO’s formula targets the collagen in fibrous septae.

When it injects into the skin, it breaks down the collagen-rich fibers that pull on the skin’s surface. Then, it dissolves the bands, allowing the underlying skin to bounce back to its former smooth glory.

QWO cellulite treatments do more than just restructure fibrous septae. It also reduces dimples and smooths skin by redistributing fat cells and stimulating collagen production.

The Cellulite Treatment

QWO treats cellulite quicker and easier than any other procedure. Injections take as little as ten minutes. Each visit includes up to two treatment areas, one on each side of the buttocks. Your doctor may inject up to 12 QWO shots per treatment area.


QWO does not completely remove cellulite. No cellulite treatment can fully reduce this dimpling appearance. However, several clinical trials demonstrate QWO “significantly reduces” cellulite. Results are seen in as little as three weeks after a single injection. However, most people choose to have three treatments done, spaced 21 days apart.

Side Effects

QWO is the least invasive procedure for reducing cellulite. The procedure is considered very safe. However, the best way to ensure optimal safety and decrease risk is to select the most reputable provider in your area. Patients living in New York choose PHI Aesthetics for their QWO injections. We are a respected provider of this popular, new cellulite shot.

Severe side effects are rare. Common but typically mild side effects include bruising, redness, and tenderness at the injection site.

QWO Cost

QWO cellulite shot cost varies per person. The exact price depends on the number of injections given and if there are any available discounts or specials.
