Dr. Katz was involved with the FDA trials that led to the approval of QWO. Therefore, you can trust that we have the most experience with QWO at JUVA.
In a recent poll conducted by Endo Pharmaceuticals, 49% of women said they felt frustrated, self-conscious, and embarrassed about their cellulite. Endo Pharmaceuticals saw this as a key impetus to create a groundbreaking new injectable that could help restore a healthy self-image by removing stubborn cellulite from the buttocks. QWO became the first injectable of its kind and JUVA Skin & Laser is thrilled to offer this cutting-edge treatment today to its NYC clients.
QWO is an exciting new injectable that helps to trim away cellulite in the buttocks and upper legs, restoring a trim, youthful physique as well as a sense of satisfaction with your appearance. Cellulite – that thick, dimpled “cottage cheese” like texture that forms when fat gets trapped in the skin’s dermal layers – can be significantly difficult to get rid of through dieting and exercise alone. That’s why QWO is such an important breakthrough in cosmetic science. It is a safe, non-surgical way to remove a problem that has plagued women’s figures for centuries.
Cellulite forms when the fibrous bands connecting skin and muscle in the buttocks begin to thicken, causing tension that pushes fat up towards the surface. QWO (collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes) works by combining two collagen-targeting enzymes that occur naturally in the human body. When injected, these enzymes break down the buildup of collagen in the fibrous bands that lead to cellulite formation. The treatment plan for QWO consists of three treatments, at three-week intervals.
QWO is a great option for anyone who is concerned about the buildup of cellulite in their lower body and who has found that their problem cannot be solved through dieting or exercise. Your candidacy will be thoroughly assessed during your private NYC consultation. Make sure to tell our team if you are pregnant or nursing, and if you suffer from any bleeding conditions. You should also be sure to tell us of any medications you are currently taking, including prescription, over-the-counter, herbal or vitamin.
The most common side effects after treatment are mild bruising at the injection site, swelling, tenderness and itching. The symptoms only last a short amount of time however, and can be well-treated with some Tylenol. Because QWO is non-surgical, you’ll be able to return to your normal activities directly after your session.
Remarkable results can be seen within a few weeks and are long lasting.
