FAQ at Happy Clinic Denver - QWO®


What is Denver QWO®?

Qwo (collagenaseccollagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes) is the first and only 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. 

How does QWO® work?

Enzymes called collagenases target the structural causes under the skin, where cellulite starts. It’s thought that QWO works by releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen. QWO is an injectable treatment option that is thought to target a primary structural cause of cellulite.

Does Denver QWO® hurt?

QWO® is well tolerated by most patients. Most people compare the injection sensation to a bug bite. Overall discomfort is minimal and temporary.

How will I look post-treatment of Denver QWO®?

With multiple injection sites and the mechanism of action, it is not uncommon to get bruising from QWO. The bruising is an indication that the enzyme is working to treat the cellulite.

How many treatments is Denver QWO®?

Each treatment visit may include up to two treatment areas. QWO injections will be given three weeks apart for a total of three treatment visits. Each treatment may look different based upon the severity of the cellulite dimples.
