What causes

There are 3 things that, together, contribute to cellulite: fibrous bands under the skin get thicker, skin thins, and fat cells get larger–pushing against the skin and creating dimples.

There is no definite explanation for why cellulite occurs. While it may be the result of an unhealthy lifestyle, there may be other causes, including genetics or hormonal changes.

How does
QWO Work?

While it is not fully understood how QWO works in moderate to severe cellulite, the enzymes in QWO—called collagenases—are believed to target a structural cause under your skin. It’s thought that QWO works in 3 ways: releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen.

Let’s talk about a different way to treat cellulite. Schedule your consultation today.
WHAT IS QWO®? QWO is a prescription medicine used to treat moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women.
