What is the procedure like?

  2. The NYC plastic surgeon will inject QWO medicine into the fat of each single affected area to patient selects
  3. The entire procedure is painless
  4. No down-time

Multiple treatments may be required. QWO treatment injections will be administered 21 days apart with a total of three treatment sessions. Each treatment session takes around  10-15 minutes.

Typically our patients see improvement to their cellulite at about 3 weeks after treatment with continuous improvement as collagen remodeling continues. Three treatments have been shown to be necessary to achieve the best results.
