Cellulite is a common skin issue that looks like uneven, lumpy skin on your hips, thighs, and buttocks and is also known as orange-peel or cottage cheese skin. Cellulite can affect both men and women, but it is more common in women due to the different distributions of fat, muscle, and connective tissue. Between 80 and 90 percent of women may experience cellulite at some point in their lives. The amount of cellulite you have and how noticeable it is can be based on your genes, body fat percentage, and age. The thickness of your skin also affects the appearance of cellulite. People of all body types and weights can get cellulite. Cellulite can become more visible as you age, and your skin becomes thinner and loses elasticity. This exposes the rippled connective tissues underneath.
QWO is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment for moderate to severe cellulitis in the buttocks of adult women. QWO uses enzymes to target the structural causes of cellulite. QWO works by releasing the fibrous bands that cause dimpling, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen. Treatment regimens vary but each area treated will require multiple visits. Injection site reactions after treatment are common side effects and include itching, redness, areas of hardness, discoloration, injection site bruising, and swelling and warmth in the treatment area.
