QWO®

Transformative Dermatology is proud to announce that our best in class board certified cosmetic dermatologists will soon offer QWO® injections, a revolutionary cellulite treatment. QWO® is the only FDA-approved injectable for moderate to severe cellulite. Our Franklin based practice plans to offer QWO® cellulite injections that effectively stimulate the growth of new collagen and redistribute fat cells to diminish the physical effects of cellulite on the buttocks. We encourage you to schedule an initial consultation with our team of board certified cosmetic dermatologists at the Franklin, TN based Transformative Dermatology (serving the Greater Nashville area). 

Cellulite is a benign skin condition that produces uneven / bumpy skin on localized areas of the body, including the abdomen, thighs, breasts, and buttocks. While cellulite occurs in both men and women (as a result of the natural aging process), it is more commonly diagnosed in women. QWO® is a prescription medication that is administered in-office by a licensed health professional or dermatologist (such as the highly trained board certified medical director of Transformative Dermatology, Dr. Jill Fichtel).

There is currently no known cause for cellulite, but it is widely held that the condition arises as a result of how fibrous tissue under the skin interacts with the thin layer of fat located just below it. 

Common causes of cellulite:

  • Inactivity 
  • Pregnancy 
  • Weight gain 
  • Genetics
  • Poor diet 
  • Toxin retention 

QWO® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment for cellulite on the buttocks. This minimally-invasive cellulite treatment consists of a designated number of injections (depending on each patient’s cellulite severity) with ~21 days between each treatment session. The number of sessions required to sufficiently diminish cellulite on the buttocks depends upon each patient’s unique anatomy and cellulite severity. 

During your initial consultation with the best in class cosmetic dermatologist, the doctor will perform a routine physical and review your full medical history to determine your eligibility for QWO® injectable cellulite treatment. 

A cellulite Severity Scale was published in 2009, ranging from Grade 1 – 3 (Mild to Severe), underlined below.

  • Mild (Grade 1): saggy looking skin with anywhere between one and four dimples with an “orange-peel” look. 
  • Moderate (Grade 2): saggy looking skin with five to nine moderately deep dimples, the affected area may be described as having a “cottage cheese” appearance.
  • Severe (Grade 3): ten or more deep dimples with extreme sagging skin, affected skin may be described as having a “mattress” appearance.

Please note: Our board certified Nashville based dermatologists offer in-person and virtual consultations (from anywhere in the world). 

The amount of treatment sessions needed to sufficiently diminish cellulite on the buttocks depends upon the unique anatomy of each patient and the doctor’s discretion on the day of the scheduled treatment. The injectable prescription medication is administered in-office at our state-of-the-art medical office located right outside of Nashville in Franklin, TN. 

While over-the-counter topical medication can provide temporary relief for individuals suffering from cellulite, it is usually not strong enough to yield permanent results – which is where clinical-grade intervention is necessary. QWO® injections are inserted directly into cellulite-affected dimples on the buttocks to increase skin elasticity, stimulate collagen growth, and redistribute fat cells in the target areas. 

Our top notch board certified cosmetic dermatologists at Transformative Dermatology collaborate with each patient individually to actualize their post-treatment goals using a careful balance of art, science, and aesthetics. Dr. Fichtel is dedicated to researching the latest and greatest in cellulite removal technology and is proud to offer her greater Nashville area patients the minimally-invasive QWO® cellulite injections soon. 

As best in class, top rated Nashville (Franklin, TN) dermatologists we provide highly personalized and comprehensive care. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a cosmetic dermatology or general dermatology consultation please use the eForm on the right or simply phone us.
