Extensive research has been done with over 1,800 patients enrolled to determine the safety and efficacy of Qwo.
The most common side effect of the medication is bruising. Eighty-four percent of women experienced bruising after the injections. This is due to tiny blood vessels that are remodeled during the process or due to trauma from the needle. Fortunately, patients reported that the rate drops dramatically with each injection so the last visit is much less likely to have bruising compared to the first. Please remember to schedule your swimsuit vacations to allow time to heal from bruising that may occur.
As with all injectable medications, Dr. Wallin will use caution and avoid injecting you if you are on blood thinners. The research shows that patients can safely use Qwo if they take 150 mg or less of aspirin daily.
Other skin reactions such as pain, itchy skin, and nodule formation were reported but are rare.
