The Langdon Center Now Offers Qwo®, the First FDA-Approved Injectable Cellulite Treatment


The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care designates The Langdon Center as an excellent organization that exceeds its standards for patient safety.


October 2021 – Guilford, CT: The Langdon Center has added Qwo®, the new and effective cellulite treatment, to their wide range of available treatments. Approved for moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of women, Qwo® offers a quick injectable therapy for one of the most common skin problems.

The new technology offered by Qwo® gives the Langdon Center team an opportunity to provide an entirely new method of cellulite removal. Unlike more invasive or more time-consuming treatments, Qwo® treatments are fast, easy, and require no recovery time. Patients love the results, and the Langdon Center is happy to bring this exciting treatment option to the Guilford area. 

Qwo® works by using enzymes called collagenases. These enzymes dissolve specific types of collagen, especially the fibrous bands under the skin that cause the dimpled appearance of cellulite. These bands adhere the skin and underlying muscle fascia together, but Qwo® releases these fibrous bands, thus removing the dimples. No other cellulite treatment uses naturally occurring enzymes to tackle the difficult challenge of these fibrous bands, and most treatments only work by tightening the skin temporarily. 

Qwo® also works by redistributing and smoothing fat. This creates a more even appearance with fewer areas that look bumpy or uneven. It also triggers the development of new collagen to support and enhance the firmness and tone of the skin. Instead of fibrous bands, new collagen forms a network beneath the skin, lifting and supporting it to add resilience and smoothness. 

Qwo® injections take only about ten minutes, and people will see results after about ten weeks as the enzymes and collagen remodeling do their job. Some people will see bruising in the treated area that can last a few weeks. People experience no downtime after treatment and can return to their daily activities right away. The fast, no-downtime treatments help make Qwo® increasingly popular in comparison to other cellulite treatments. 

Just one of many options from the Langdon Center, Qwo® marks the latest progress in their goal to bring people the most innovative, effective treatments in a safe, comfortable setting. Their specialists offer consultations to help people choose the best treatment, and they now offer the FDA-approved Qwo® in addition to their many other treatment options.
