Introducing QWO®: A cutting-edge injectable cellulite treatment at AESTHETICS 360°

Are you ready to change how we talk about cellulite? We are! Let’s be honest: We shouldn’t be embarrassed to chat freely about a topic that affects nearly 90 percent of women. Although most women will develop cellulite at some point in their lives, an effective solution to treat the actual cause of cellulite hasn’t been available…That is, until now!  

Meet QWO® (collagenase clostridium histolyticum-aaes), a cutting-edge injectable cellulite treatment in Milwaukee offered by the aesthetic experts at AESTHETICS 360°. QWO® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for treating the cause of cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. 

Read on to find out how QWO® cellulite treatment in Milwaukee from AESTHETICS 360° can help you look and feel your best.

Where does cellulite come from?

There are three factors that combine to create cellulite:

  • Fibrous Bands: Underneath the skin is a pattern of fibrous bands. Over time, these bands thicken, which causes tension on the skin above it. This tension is what causes the dimpled appearance on the skin’s surface. 
  • Skin Laxity: Fatty tissue thins out, making your skin thinner. The looser your skin, the more space fat cells have to fill — creating a more dramatic appearance of cellulite. 
  • Fat: Fat cells enlarge and push into the skin, while the thickened fibrous bands pull down, creating an uneven skin surface. 

These three factors come together to leave the common dimpling of the skin that we all associate with cellulite. Other factors like hormones, genetics, skin texture and body type play into cellulite development, too. 

Who develops cellulite?

The short answer? Almost every woman. About 90 percent of women will develop cellulite during their lifetime. Women develop cellulite at a much higher rate than men because women typically develop fat in their thighs, hips and buttocks — where cellulite thrives.

Cellulite doesn’t develop because of weight gain or lack of exercise. Lean people have cellulite, too — and losing weight won’t necessarily reduce cellulite’s appearance. 

The fact that weight isn’t the biggest factor in its development makes cellulite all the more frustrating. It feels like there’s nothing you can do to stop it. 

That’s where QWO® comes in. 

How QWO® treats cellulite

As the first and only FDA-approved injectable for treating cellulite in the buttocks of women, QWO® has changed the game for women everywhere. QWO® cellulite treatment in Milwaukee is injected at AESTHETICS 360° by our Qwo Pros. The desired result? A noticeable reduction in the appearance of cellulite and a smoother skin appearance on the buttocks.

How QWO® works

QWO® is a non-surgical, injectable treatment made from enzymes called collagenases. These enzymes are believed to target the structural cause of cellulite under the skin. 

Once injected, QWO® starts to work on cellulite in three ways:

  1. Releasing tight fibrous bands under the skin
  2. Redistributing fat from the targeted area
  3. Stimulating growth of new collagen

Because QWO® is a non-surgical treatment, you can receive your treatment and go about the rest of your day. (Or, QWO and go!) QWO® cellulite treatment in Milwaukee at AESTHETICS 360° involves three 10-minute injection sessions, each done 21 days apart. It’s a quick, easy, safe and effective way for women to treat cellulite on their buttocks. 

Why give QWO a go?

QWO® goes to work on cellulite at its source under the skin — something that creams and other topical treatments can’t deliver. It’s a quick procedure, with most injections taking 10 minutes. And, most importantly, it meets the rigorous requirements of FDA-approval

These are just a handful of reasons why we are proud to now offer QWO® cellulite treatment to patients at our Milwaukee medical spa. 

The treatment process

Before determining if QWO® cellulite treatment is right for you, you’ll meet with one of our QWO Pros for a one-on-one consultation. During this consultation, one of our QWO Pros will work with you to determine if you are a candidate for our QWO treatment in Milwaukee. The buttocks area will be assessed during your complimentary consultation, and your QWO Pro will discuss treatment and expectations. 

Our treatment consultations are not only free of charge but free of judgment! You can expect an open and honest conversation with our QWO Pro, who is here to answer your questions and educate you about this cutting-edge new injectable cellulite treatment. 

Starting QWO® treatment

During your first QWO® treatment, “before” photos will be captured and our QWO Pro will mark the injection areas on your buttocks while you stand. Next, you’ll lay on your stomach while injections are made into the marked sites. Pain during the injection process is minimal — and the injection process takes just 10 minutes.

Three QWO® treatments will be administered, each 21 days apart. Your results will be assessed 30 days after your third treatment.

Expected results from QWO®

QWO® has been studied in more patients than any other FDA-approved cellulite treatment. After receiving the QWO® cellulite treatment in Milwaukee at AESTHETICS 360°, results might be seen as early as 10 weeks after your third treatment. 


The most common side effect after QWO® is bruising at the injection site. Most clients can return to their daily routine right after treatment. The intensity of bruising may lessen with each treatment, and generally goes away within about two weeks.

Other potential side effects include itching, redness, shadowing, pain, areas of hardness, swelling and warmth in the treatment area. 

Paired treatments with QWO®

We love it when skin and body treatments work together to produce real results. That’s why we’ve selected a few treatments we believe would be a perfect pairing with our QWO cellulite treatment. 


Pairing CoolSculpting of the “banana roll” or thighs with your QWO® cellulite treatment provides total lower body rejuvenation. CoolSculpting is an innovative way to contour the body and reduce excess fat — without surgery and with zero to minimal downtime.

CoolSculpting works by freezing the fat cells in a targeted area, killing those fat cells in the process. The body then naturally eliminates the dead cells. Once those cells are gone, they’re gone for good!

Revision Skincare BodiFirm

Revision Skincare’s BodiFirm was designed to help visibly firm, tighten and lift sagging, crepey skin in order to sculpt and tone the body. Naturally, this groundbreaking product is a perfect supplement to your QWO injectable cellulite treatments. Plus, you can use it anywhere you need a little extra tightening, like the abs, thighs and upper arms. 

Frequently asked questions about QWO®

How does QWO® compare to other cellulite treatments?

One of the main ways QWO® works is by releasing tight, fibrous bands that form underneath the skin. These bands are a main cause of cellulite. 

Other cellulite treatments also work by releasing those bands, but the difference lies in how those bands are surrendered. Unlike other treatments, QWO® releases the fibrous bands chemically. Other treatments physically release those bands by cutting them — either with tiny blades or lasers. QWO® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for treating cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. 

How is QWO® given?

QWO® is an injectable treatment offered by AESTHETIC 360° for treating cellulite on the buttocks of adult women. It’s administered through small injections into dimples in the buttocks.

The A360 QWO Pro administers QWO® in three treatments, spaced 21 days apart. 

How long do the injections take?

QWO® injections usually take 10 minutes or less, allowing patients to return to their normal activities quickly. 

How can I tell if I have cellulite?

Skin laxity and cellulite are easily confused. That’s why it’s vital to schedule a complimentary consultation with a QWO Pro at AESTHETICS 360° in Milwaukee. Our QWO Pro can tell you if you do have cellulite, and if you are a good candidate for the QWO injectable cellulite treatment. 

What results can I expect?

Results might be seen as early as 10 weeks after your third QWO treatment. 

Are there any side effects?

The most common side effects of QWO® include injection site bruising, pain, areas of hardness, itching, redness, shadowing, swelling and warmth in the injection area. In most cases, these effects won’t last longer than a few weeks.

Should I expect any downtime?

There is typically little to no downtime associated with QWO® injections.
