Sculptra Butt Lift

Sculptra 101

Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace missing collagen. Traditionally used to treat facial wrinkles, Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator. 

Fillers (such as Radiesse, a biostimulatory filler, or hyaluronic acid) push from up from under the skin. Sculptra works within the deep dermis to revitalize collagen production, restore your skin’s inner structure, and create volume.

Gradually over a multi-month treatment regimen, results can last up to two years. Sculptra is a biocompatible substance that is easily absorbed by the body. 

Uplifted Standards

Sculptra Butt Lift is a revolutionary non-surgical alternative to a traditional butt lift or Brazilian butt lift. This treatment involves use of Sculptra injections at targeted areas in under the skin. This thickens the skin and stimulates deep collagen growth, resulting in a firmer feeling and and more voluptuous buttocks.

Sculptra butt lifts have no downtime as there is no surgery involved in the treatment. Treatments are convenient and results are effective, most notably for women who cannot undergo a fat transfer procedure. This lift can make the buttocks fuller for women of most body types. However, this is especially good for slim women without much body fat.

Butt Lifts: What’s the Difference?

The Brazilian Butt lift has risen in popularity in recent years due to celebrity exposure to outstandingly defined posteriors. The full and womanly look of a butt lift are in vogue.

A traditional Brazilian butt lift is a fat transfer procedure. Fat is taken from an area on the body and transferred to the buttocks. This is a surgical procedure requiring post-operative care. The outcomes of a Brazilian butt lift are often dramatic.

Sculptra butt lifts are different. This lift provides a defining, more subtle enhancement. Sculptra lifts involve non-invasive treatments that create volume in the buttocks. These injections thicken skin and add shape to the area.

Treatments are gradual and are performed over several one hour sessions. Sculptra lifts have short downtime and fast recovery times. This new technique is popular for leaner women seeking a similar enhancement to Brazilian butt lifts.
