Cottage cheese butts can come out of hiding with the advent of QWO, the first injectable approved by the Food and Drug Administration to treat moderate to severe cellulite in adult women. “The injections work to dissolve the buildup of collagen in the fibrous bands, which are bands under the skin that thicken and cause tension and the ‘dimpled’ look of cellulite,” explains Dr. Bruce Katz of JUVA Skin and Laser Center in New York. As of now, the treatment is FDA-approved only for buttocks, but Dr. Katz uses a series of deeper injections in varying directions to treat thighs as well. A butt treatment takes about 10 minutes, with three sessions required. Expect bruising that lasts for one week and a smoother derriere around the 10-week mark. QWO hit the market in 2021; while data suggest long-lasting results, the jury is still out.
