It is a truly non-surgical procedure, the Sculptra Butt Lift has revolutionized the way butt lift procedures are performed. Sculptra is a great option for those who desire a fuller and shapelier buttocks but have been unable to achieve it naturally, and do not wish to proceed with surgery. It can increase volume in the buttocks by stimulating collagen.
What is Sculptra?
Sculptra, or poly-l-lactic acid (PLLA), is a volume-enhancing injectable used for skin and soft tissue augmentation. PLLA stimulates the body’s own collagen production and can be used for volume restoration and skin rejuvenation.
When will I see results
Although results can be noticed as early as six weeks after the treatments, the optimal outcome is not noticed until about six months after the procedure.
How long does it last?
Experts generally agree that results last between two and three years, although some have reported that Sculptra can continue to enhance collagen production for as long as five years, or even longer. However, you will most likely find that touch-up injections are required after two years to prolong the effects of your treatment.
How many treatments are required?
Your treatments should be spaced about three to twelve weeks apart, depending on your schedule and preferences. Depending on the desired level of augmentation, most patients require about two to three treatments, six weeks apart.
What are the post-care instructions?
After the injections there may be some soreness for a couple days, similar to a tough workout.
To encourage the Sculptra to spread out among the tissue, doctors recommend that patients massage their bottoms for five minutes, five times a day for a few days. Other than that little aftercare is required, and patients can return to their regular activities right away.
