What is QWO?

QWO is the first FDA-approved injectable for moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. QWO is a  non-surgical treatment clinically proven to reduce moderate to severe cellulite. QWO is injected directly into the cellulite fibrous bands that pull the skin down and cause dimples. When injected, it dissolves these bands over the course of 3 treatments, which are spaced 21 days apart. Visible results may be achieved in 10 weeks. 

Most women will have cellulite in their lifetime–about 9 out of 10 women, in fact.

That means your tough workouts and healthy eating habits are fantastic for your fitness and overall wellness—but won’t do much to reduce your cellulite. If you really want to reduce cellulite, you need to understand what’s behind it.
