Backside of woman, cellulite-freeQWO® is a new, non-surgical treatment for the elimination of cellulite. Extremely difficult to remove, cellulite is marked by a dimpling of skin – typically on the buttocks and thighs – and is not related to weight fluctuations. Up to 90% of women will develop cellulite in their lifetime.

QWO® is an injectable treatment designed to target and remove cellulite. The first-of-its-kind, this injectable treatment utilizes enzymes known as collagenase to release fibrous bands, redistribute fat cells, and stimulate collagen production in the treatment area, serving to smooth the skin and create a much more appealing look.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brenda Schiesel is pleased to offer this service to women living in and around Tulsa. Use the contact form on this page or give us a call to schedule your consultation and learn more.

What are the Risks?

Recently, Fox 23 conducted an investigative report into the safety and efficacy of QWO®. This investigation, which included personal accounts, interviews with board-certified plastic surgeons, and reports from the FDA and NIH, found that QWO® enjoys a remarkable safety record. QWO® is a new treatment, but the active ingredients have a long history of medical use. One of the doctors interviewed by Fox News even discusses how he had been using collagenases to release scar tissue for decades. The exact machination is not yet understood, but QWO® has shown to be highly effective in the complete removal of cellulite without producing serious risks.

While safe and effective, QWO® is not painless. According to Staci Driver, our very own nurse injector, the discomfort following her first treatment was a bit surprising. Bruising and discomfort are common in the days after treatment, but these things tend to become less intense with subsequent treatments. Discomfort from QWO® is temporary and should self-correct within just a few days.

At South Tulsa Plastic Surgery, our staff gave QWO® a try before we decided to offer the service. This gives us direct insight into what treatment is like and how well it works, and enables us to provide honest information about experiences and results that can help you make the best decision for your needs.
