How Long Does QWO Last For?

If you’ve been searching for solutions to stubborn cellulite in the buttocks, you may have come across QWO. QWO is the only injectable approved to treat cellulite in the buttocks, and it’s been rapidly gaining attention for the dramatic results it provides. 

One of the most common questions that patients ask about QWO is how long it lasts. After all, many women don’t have the time in their schedules to return for touch-up treatments every few months. 

Luckily, QWO is longer-lasting than the typical injectable, as well as the other cellulite treatments on the market today. With a unique formula, QWO can eliminate cellulite and keep it from ever coming back. 

The QWO Process

To explain how long the results of QWO last, let’s first talk about how the treatment works. QWO contains collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes. This is a blend of enzymes called bacterial collagenases. When these enzymes are injected into an area with cellulite, it works to dissolve the fibrous septae that keep the skin and muscle tissue connected around pockets of fat.

Septae are the main culprit behind cellulite. These fibers keep muscle and skin tissue connected, even as fat cells accumulate in between them, which forms the dimpled appearance that people associate with cellulite. 

By dissolving the septae, QWO allows the skin to disconnect from the muscle. As a result, the skin tissue rises and becomes flush with the rest of the skin, creating a smooth and cellulite-free look. 

How Long QWO Lasts

While results can vary from patient to patient, QWO has shown promise as a permanent solution for cellulite. While factors including weight gain, aging, and pregnancy may cause cellulite in the future, cellulite that was treated with QWO is unlikely to return. This is because QWO effectively eliminates the septae in the treatment area.
