QWO® Specialist in the San Francisco Bay Area

At PotozkinMD Skin Care and Laser Center, our board-certified dermatologists are experts in cosmetic injectable treatments such as QWO® injections that help improve cellulite.

What is QWO®?

Around 90% of adult women experience stubborn cellulite dimples that only seem to get more prominent over time. Fat cells have an extremely unique makeup in the buttocks region, so diet and exercise often prove ineffective especially when compounded by the aging process.

This can be especially frustrating to experience if you are living a healthy lifestyle and seem to never be able to make any progress on the appearance of your cellulite.

QWO® was created with women in mind. This treatment is the first and only FDA-approved injectable to treat moderate-to-severe cellulite in adult women. 

As women age, there are a few separate factors that can contribute to cellulite: 

  • Fibrous bands under the skin get thicker
  • Skin continues to get thin as you age
  • Fat cells become larger which push against the skin and create the noticeable dimples

During the quick 10-25 minute procedure, QWO® injections use enzymes to release these fibrous bands, redistribute fat cells more evenly, and stimulate the growth of new collagen.

With QWO® treatments, small injections are made directly into the dimples of cellulite. It can be compared to tiny pricks similar to what you experience when receiving Botox.

What are some of the expected benefits with QWO®?

The treatments themselves are not painful, but there will be bruising after the procedure that may have associated tenderness. During your initial consultation, our team will discuss the procedure more in depth. 

Some of the biggest advantages of QWO® are:

  • Studies on all skin types and ethnicities have shown the same cellulite reduction for all
  • Minimal downtime after each treatment
  • It’s quick! Each procedure only takes about 10-25 minutes
  • Cellulite reduction will usually be visible in 10 weeks
  • It’s a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment
  • You’re able to return to your normal activities afterwards

The number of treatments will vary depending on the exact amount of cellulite you have. Our team will create a personalized treatment plan for you during your initial consultation.

Though there is no post-treatment downtime, we do not recommend starting the treatments right before a trip. There are often lingering bruises at the injection site, so we recommend starting the treatments 10-13 weeks before you plan to have treated areas exposed.

The results of QWO® treatments are long-lasting and show an impressive reduction in cellulite. 

There is no better time to take advantage of this one-of-a-kind and revolutionary procedure. Our trusted team is dedicated to providing you with the most comfortable patient experience possible.

Our Philosophy

“Our practice philosophy is simple — to deliver the very best care we can in the very best way we can. To us, that means we make each and every patient feel welcomed from the moment that they walk in the door until they leave the office. It means that we listen to what the patient has to say and address those concerns. It means we give advice and recommend treatments based on our extensive training with leaders in the field, our wealth of personal experience, and our commitment to excellence. For our cosmetic patients, it means working with the patient to achieve results that look natural, not overdone or exaggerated. It means that we always strive to do the right thing for the patient, as we value very highly ethics, honesty, and integrity. It means we stand behind what we do and will do everything in our power to get the best results we can for the patient. It means we carefully select the highest quality staff to represent us and help us carry out these goals. Lastly and most importantly, it means that we treat the patient the way we would want ourselves to be treated, with respect and kindness. Because at the end of the day, without all of our loyal patients, we wouldn’t have a practice.”

Extremely caring

"He saved my life! Literally! I've been seeing Dr. Potozkin for over 20 years and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my skin. I had melanoma 20 years ago and he took care of me and just recently I had it again. And might have more, but I'm waiting on the results. But if I do, I am confident that Dr Potozkin and his highly trained staff will take care of me. He is the best in his field. Everyone on his staff is so caring and helpful. I feel so comfortable when I'm there. So please, if you have any skin concerns, make an appointment, don't delay, your life may depend on it."

Efficient & Professional

"Dr. Potozkin and his team are the best! My skin issues/problems have drastically improved since I have been coming to this Doctor-over 5, maybe even 10 years. His staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The office is a flagship store that sells my favorite skin repair and healing products- by SkinCeuticals. I don’t live near this office, but I would never go anywhere else even if it’s closer. Absolutely worth the trip. The results are real!"
