Meet Qwo collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes

It's finally here! Introducing a groundbreaking injectable for moderate to severe cellulite on the buttocks of adult women. Get a glimpse at how it works.

Fibrous band creating tension under skin
Under the surface of the skin is a pattern of fibrous bands that connect the skin to the muscle. Over time, some of these fibrous bands thicken, creating tension that pushes fat up. This causes the surface dimples commonly referred to as cellulite.
QWO applied to fibrous band
Collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes, or QWO, is a mixture of two naturally occurring collagenase enzymes, AUX-I and AUX-II, that is injected into the skin under the dimple.
Enzymes working within fibrous band
These enzymes target Type 1 and Type 3 collagen found in fibrous bands and work together to break down the buildup of collagen that causes cellulite.
Fibrous band broken within skin
When QWO is injected, the fibrous bands are broken. It is thought this may release the dimple and smooth the surface of the skin.
