Many people suffer from cellulite, and while it poses no health risk, it does affect both self-image and confidence.

At the Laser Center of Marin in Corte Madera, CA, we offer QWO, the first-ever injectable that can finally minimize cellulite and, in doing so, help you experience a new sense of confidence.
What Is QWO?
QWO is a cosmetic injectable designed to smooth cellulite, a condition that leads to textual inconsistencies on the skin’s surface. It is the first-ever cosmetic injectable that is FDA-approved to effectively treat and eliminate cellulite. Once you undergo this treatment, you can get rid of all those ineffective at-home DIY cellulite treatments and instead invest in a treatment that works.
What Does It Treat?
This treatment is designed to smooth cellulite on the buttocks and legs. While cellulite can appear virtually anywhere on the body, the buttocks in the legs are the most common areas that experience cellulite.
How Does It Work?
This injectable address is cellulite at the source. It uses an active ingredient called collagenase to break up the fibrous bands in the deeper layer of the skin called the dermis. By damaging these fibrous bands, it allows the fat cells to redistribute, thus eliminating that textural inconsistency that appears as a dimpled, indented texture on the skin’s surface.
The fibrous bands beneath the skin surface create tension that pulls on the top layer of the skin and forces it to conform to the fat cells in the area. Once those bands are loosened, cellulite disappears. The skin takes on a smoother texture, and as a result, you can feel more confident about the appearance of your skin.
Why Does It Work?
This treatment works because it doesn’t just smooth cellulite with artificial ingredients. Instead, it works with natural bodily enzymes to produce proteins that affect cellulite at its source: the connective tissue. In doing so, it fills in those textural inconsistencies and dimples beneath the skin’s surface to improve skin texture in town.
