A revolutionary new solution for ridding the body of stubborn cellulite
QWO is the first injectable of its kind, FDA-approved for removing the unsightly dimpled skin in the buttocks and thighs known as cellulite. In less than 20 minutes, your practitioner can perform a series of simple injections that helps to beautifully smooth and contour the skin, so you can finally feel more confident in your appearance.
What is cellulite?
If you have experienced skin around the buttocks and thighs that has the texture of cottage cheese and is highly resistant to dieting and exercise, you may be very familiar with cellulite. This cosmetic issue can be quite concerning, especially in the warmer months when you want to wear your swimsuit and other summer attire.
Cellulite occurs when the collagen-rich fibrous cords connecting the surface of the skin to the underlying muscle structure grow weak, allowing pockets of fat to push up against the skin, creating a quilted effect. Cellulite can be present in those who are overweight or lean – it does not discriminate.
What is QWO?
QWO is an advanced injectable utilizing enzymes to break down the collagen banding in the buttocks and thighs that is responsible for cellulite formation. In this way, QWO can improve the skin’s texture, smoothing away imperfections, depressions and dimples. New collagen will then form, volumizing and firming your skin from the inside out.
Most doctors suggest three sessions with QWO, spaced out at 21-day intervals to achieve comprehensive improvements. QWO treatments take less than 20 minutes and require no downtime or recovery. Results can last for years, provided you continue to follow a healthy, balanced regimen of nutritious eating and exercise.
What happens during QWO treatment?
Before your injections, you will undergo a private consultation with our team to determine the severity and location of your cellulite. We will discuss your aesthetic goals, your concerns and ideal treatment plan for resolving your cosmetic issues.
Your target areas will then be marked with a surgical pen, and QWO will be strategically injected. The whole process is very quick and easy, with no pain and no anesthesia required. The buttocks and thighs contain a higher concentration of fat than the face does, so injections don’t hurt as they might with BOTOX or other injectables.

Who makes a good candidate for QWO?
QWO is appropriate for those 18 years old and over who are not allergic to any ingredients in the product. Clients should be healthy, both mentally and physically, and they should be realistic in what they hope to achieve with QWO. Remember that QWO is not a weight loss program and cannot substitute for regular exercise and a healthy diet. Please schedule a consultation with our team to best determine if QWO is a good fit for your goals.
What happens after my QWO session?
As with most injectables, you might experience some minor swelling or tenderness at the treatment site, but these side effects are short-lived and usually disappear by the end of the day or the next morning. Mild bruising may persist for up to two weeks. It’s a good idea to abstain from strenuous activity for 24-48 hours in order to allow the QWO to settle within your body tissue.
After QWO injections, you’ll be able to return to work, school, or leisure activities immediately. The treatment can be repeated about three times at three-week intervals.
What is the cost for QWO?
Pricing for QWO treatment will vary, based on the exact locations treated, and on the number of sessions required to effectively contour your lower body. The average hovers between $2000 and $6000. We can provide a much more personalized and detailed quote at the time of your consultation in Portland, OR, or Vancouver, WA.
