What is QWO?
Whether you're at the beach or in the bedroom, cellulite on the buttocks can cause a great deal of self-consciousness. To make matters worse, these stubborn areas are incredibly difficult to get rid of. While fat can often be eliminated by implementing a proper diet and exercise plan, cellulite will often stay behind (no pun intended). At Bodian Dermatology, we offer an exciting, new treatment called QWO that is designed with this problem in mind. This injectable treatment is FDA-approved to address moderate to severe cellulite on the buttocks of women. Dr. Adam Bodian and his talented staff would like to welcome men and women who are unhappy with the current appearance of cellulite on their buttocks and legs to visit our dermatology practice in Great Neck, NY. We have vast experience in utilizing these injections to help our patients to put their best foot forward.

Am I a Candidate for QWO?
Generally, this treatment has proven to be incredibly useful for patients who are seeking what we feel is the best solution to their cellulite problem. As it is a simple injectable, it is loved by most of our patients. However, there are a small number of considerations that may deem a patient unfit for QWO. These include:
- Loose skin or varicose veins on the buttocks
- Bleeding problems
- Almost always bruises immediately after treatment from the enzyme release in the cellulite
How Does QWO Work?
During your initial consultation, we'll discuss your concerns and goals before conducting an in-depth assessment of the cellulite on your buttocks. From there, we'll be able to create a treatment plan that will perfectly suit your needs. Once you've approved this plan, we'll ask you to lie comfortably while we mark the injection sites. After the marks have been made, we'll begin making injections into each designated site. As the QWO serum is injected into the buttocks, it begins to release fibrous strands, redistribute fat cells, and stimulate the body's natural production of collagen. While the exact number of injections will vary from patient to patient, the procedure as a whole usually lasts under a half hour.
What Are the Results of QWO?
Due to QWO's minimally invasive nature, there is very little to worry about in terms of recovery and aftercare. Most patients are able to return to their normal, daily schedule as soon as we've finished making the injections. Having said that, there are a few things to keep in mind in order to ensure you receive the best possible results. We recommend for patients to refrain from exercise and heavy lifting for at least two days after the injection in order to allow the body to properly heal. In addition, there almost alwatys hs noticeable bruising and/or discomfort on the treated areas, but this is very common and should subside on its own within a few days.
Patients will be scheduled for three total sessions that are spaced three weeks apart from one another. This ensures the serum has had enough time to truly take hold in the body before the next injection is made. Once the third session is complete, most patients can expect to see their final results within about 28 days.
