Qwo® Cellulite Treatment

A Clinically-Proven Cellulite Treatment in St. Louis, MO

What is Cellulite?

Cellulite is extremely common, occurring to some extent in almost all adult women and men. It is a localized alteration in the contour of the skin, caused by 3 completely normal things:

  • Fat cells get larger 
  • Skin gets thinner and looser
  • Fibers under the skin get thicker

All of this combined causes the condition we know as cellulite, which can give the skin an “orange peel” or uneven texture. But as normal as cellulite is,  many people prefer the aesthetic appearance of reduced cellulite. 

Weight loss can reduce the appearance of cellulite, but doesn’t address the fibrous bands under the surface of the skin. Often, weight loss can actually make cellulite look worse because the skin becomes looser.

Up until now, treatments for the deep dimples of cellulite were invasive and surgical – involving a cutting of the fibers that cause cellulite in the skin. 

Dr. Willis wants you to know 2 things: 1). Cellulite is a natural occurrence and 2). Moderate to severe cellulite can now be reduced non-surgically!

What is the Qwo® Cellulite Treatment?

Introducing Qwo® – the first and only FDA-approved injectable for cellulite. Qwo® is the perfect treatment for moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. Injections are a simple, quick, and painless treatment with long-lasting results.This cellulite treatment has shown to be effective on the thighs as well.

Qwo® is made from enzymes called collagenases, which have been safely used for years in other medical applications. These enzymes target the fibrous, collagen structures underneath the skin, where cellulite starts. Qwo® works by releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating new collagen growth. 

Qwo® Quick Facts:

  • First and only FDA-approved injectable for the treatment of moderate to severe cellulite in women’s butts
  • Non-surgical treatment performed in a doctor’s office
  • Injections take about 10 minutes or less
  • Three treatment visits over the course of two months
  • Studied on all skin types and ethnicities
  • Visible results may be achieved in as little as 3 weeks
  • Results are permanent

Qwo® has also been studied in more patients than any other FDA-approved cellulite treatment, with over 1,800 women participating. That makes Qwo® the most trusted, safe, and proven cellulite treatment on the market.

How Does the Qwo® Cellulite Treatment Work?

Qwo® works through a process called Enzymatic Subcision and Remodeling (ESR). Qwo® is an injectable that contains two enzymes which dissolve collagen structures in the skin. These enzymes get injected beneath a cellulite dimple, which initiates the ESR process. ESR dissolves the fibrous structures in the skin, smoothing the surface of the skin. Qwo® also stimulates the production of new collagen structures, which makes the skin surface even more smooth and attractive.

Botox & Fillers

Botox is an FDA-approved purified protein that is injected into targeted muscles in the face. It temporarily blocks nerve signals that cause muscle movements — essentially relaxing the muscle — which reduces or eliminates fine lines and wrinkles.
