Less than 12 dimples $1500

More than 12 dimples $1800

Cellulite tends to be a four-letter word for many people, especially for those who have it. If you’re one of them, then you’re probably all too familiar with how self-conscious those unsightly dimples on your thighs and buttocks can make you feel…especially if it’s shorts and bathing suit weather! You’re not alone if cellulite is an unwanted part of your life – roughly 85% of women over the age of 25 have some degree of cellulite, but only about 10% of men are affected. The good news is there are options available that can help you give that bumpy cellulite the boot!

At Skin Esteem, we offer one of the latest innovations in treating cellulite for our clients in Northern Kentucky and the greater Cincinnati area. It’s called QWO® (collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes) and it’s the first and only FDA-approved injectable for moderate to severe cellulite. QWO is certainly making waves in the aesthetics industry thanks to its remarkable skin-smoothing benefits.

QWO® Before & After Gallery

How does QWO work?

First of all, it’s important to know that cellulite is not your fault. It’s not fat caused by what or how much you eat, and it’s not the result of lack of exercise. Cellulite is plain and simple a part of a woman’s biology. Though it’s not fully understood exactly how QWO works, the medication does contain special enzymes called collagenases that target specific structural causes under the skin. There are three ways this is believed to occur:

  1. By releasing fibrous bands
  2. Redistributing the fat cells
  3. Stimulating new collagen production

QWO is injected directly into targeted dimples on your buttocks and thighs using a very fine needle. Treatment typically takes only about 10 minutes.

Am I a candidate for treatment with QWO?
QWO is indicated for women with moderate to severe cellulite – not those experiencing laxity. Patients with well-defined dimples caused by cellulite and some laxity may be good candidates for treatment with QWO, but the injections may only improve the actual dimpling present. People who are allergic to collagenase or any of the ingredients in QWO should not receive the injections. Also, those who have an active infection in the treatment area should not receive this treatment.
How many QWO treatments will I need?
Just as every woman is different, every case of cellulite is different. That said, we’ll analyze your specific condition and determine how many treatments may be needed. In clinical studies, women typically received three treatments spaced about 21 days apart for best results. One treatment typically includes 12 injections per buttock for a maximum of 24 injections.
Are there any side effects with QWO injections?
The most common side effect includes injection site bruising. Other side effects reported were mild pain, itching, redness, areas of hardness, discoloration, swelling, and a warm sensation in the treatment area. The most serious side effect, though rare, is allergic reaction.
What results can I expect with QWO?
Most people can expect a visible reduction in the appearance of moderate to severe cellulite in about 10 weeks following their last treatment. Those results should last for several years as long as a healthy lifestyle is maintained. Bare minimum, you can expect your results to last at least one year, though it’s likely to last much longer.
