Ask My Derm: New Cellulite Injectable Qwo With Dr. Jacob

Published by Marketing Team

Mark your calendars! A new, FDA-approved injectable for cellulite is coming soon! We asked Dr. Carolyn Jacob more about the exciting new cellulite injectable Qwo (pronounced “Kwoh”) and how it will differ from other cellulite treatments currently available.

Q: What is Qwo?
Dr. Jacob: Qwo is a revolutionary, non-surgical injectable treatment for cellulite. Three  treatments separated three weeks apart, can lead to improvement of even moderate to severe cellulite.

Q: What is the difference between Qwo and other cellulite treatments?
Dr. Jacob: Cellulite bands pull down on the skin, forming dimples. Qwo uses an enzyme to break down the bands that hold the skin down into a dimple position, releasing it and allowing the skin to be smoother. Other cellulite treatments like cutting the bands, can be more invasive requiring numbing medication. Other options can focus more on the thickening of skin, or utilize massaging lymphatic systems to improve the appearance of cellulite.

Q: Where can Qwo be used?
Dr. Jacob: Currently it is FDA approved for moderate to severe cellulite on the buttocks of adult women, however further studies are underway for the thighs.

Q: How do you know that Qwo is effective?
Dr. Jacob: 3-D photographs and standard photography were used during clinical trials to scientifically grade improvement in the appearance of cellulite

Q: When will this new injectable be available?
Dr. Jacob: Early 2021!
