Sculptra is an injectable treatment that can tighten, smooth, and add volume to your skin. At Beautique Medical Anti-Aging in Knoxville, TN, we use this injectable to perform non-surgical butt lifts, which can enhance your hip contours and add volume to your buttocks. Are you wondering how Sculptra can transform your appearance and minimize your imperfections? Our experts are happy to answer all your questions.
How Does Sculptra Work?
Sculptra is formulated with poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a synthetic version of lactic acid that’s naturally produced by the body. PLLA can trigger the body’s natural rejuvenation processes, which include smoothing out the skin and giving it a tighter, firmer appearance. Unlike dermal fillers, Sculptra can be safely injected into the deeper layers of the skin, which allows us to use large quantities to plump up your target areas.
Lactic acid helps our muscles recover after intense physical activity. When injected into the skin, PLLA triggers the production of more collagen, which keeps the skin firm, supple, and elastic. The build-up of natural collagen helps support the structure of the skin and gives it a firmer appearance.
Can Sculptra Be Used on the Body?
Sculptra injectables can be used for facial rejuvenation as well as body contouring. At Beautique Medical Anti-Aging, we can use this treatment to smooth out your hip and butt areas, add volume, and get rid of dents and dimples. The result of our non-surgical butt lift is a more aesthetically pleasing backside with improved projection, size, and shape. If you want to enhance your buttocks without surgery, this treatment can be perfect for you!
The results of your non-surgical butt lift are long-lasting, thanks to Sculptra’s impressive ability to stimulate the long-term production of collagen. We can minimize the appearance of dimples, creases, and hollowness in your skin for years to come. You can expect gradual as well as immediate results from your treatment.
When Will You See the Results of Your Non-Surgical Butt Lift?
When it comes to smoothing your skin and minimizing the appearance of dents and wrinkles, your optimal results should show about two to three months after you’ve received the treatment. Your body needs time to respond to the treatment and produce significant amounts of collagen, but waiting for the results will be worth it!
Sculptra’s active ingredient, poly-L-lactic acid, provides an immediate, although temporary, volumizing and lifting effect. And as your body absorbs the substance in your injectable treatment, your body’s inflammatory response is triggered, kickstarting the production of new collagen fibers in the treated areas. The boost in collagen production gradually occurs within the months following your treatment.
How Long Will the Results Last?
About six months after you’ve received the treatment, your body will have absorbed about half of the product injected. You’ll begin to notice a decrease in volume from your initial results, but your skin condition will continue to improve. You can expect to maintain the smooth, firm skin from your treatment for about two to five years. The collagen production in your skin will remain at elevated levels, which can slow down the aging process.
If you’d like to maintain the volume and size of your buttocks after your initial treatment, you may get repeat treatments to maintain your results. There’s no need to worry about downtime or a long recovery period, so it can be very easy to maintain your desired look.
What Benefits Can You Expect From the Treatment?
Our non-surgical butt lift delivers beautiful, natural-looking results, making it perfect for enhancing your appearance without the risks of surgery. Here are the results that you can achieve from this treatment:
Increased Size and Volume
We can inject the right amount of product to increase the size and volume of your target areas. The immediate increase in volume may be temporary and only last for weeks, but our injectable treatment delivers long-term results by revitalizing your body’s natural collagen production. The increase in collagen fibers in your skin helps improve your skin’s volume and gives your treated areas a fuller, more shapely look.
Do you have hip dips or violin hips that make you feel self-conscious? With our non-surgical butt lift, you can achieve a more even, smoother contour. Injectables can be used to make your hips look round, creating a more desirable silhouette. Our experts can inject the right amount of product in specific areas where additional volume is needed.
Dimples, dents, and an uneven skin texture can make your butt look saggy. But using injectables, we can smooth away these imperfections and help you achieve an overall smoother, firmer look. Just as we can smooth away your wrinkles and fine lines using injectables, we can also improve the appearance of your butt and give it a more lifted look.
What’s the Treatment Process?
Before you can achieve a smoother, more shapely body contour, there are a few steps involved in your treatment. To ensure that you are satisfied with your results, we will personalize your treatment plan. Our team will listen to your needs, wants, and goals, so we can approach your treatment in a way that helps you achieve your dream body. We also want to make sure that you have a positive treatment experience!
The first step is to schedule an initial consultation with our team, especially if it’s your first time receiving an injectable treatment. During this initial consultation, we will learn more about you and ask you about your aesthetic goals.
If you have any questions or concerns about your appearance, the best time to discuss them is during your initial consultation. We will take all your needs, desires, and goals when customizing your treatment plan.
Before Your Treatment
Before your treatment session, we will provide you with a list of reminders to ensure that you have a safe and satisfying experience. Our instructions may include:
- Avoid aspirin and other blood-thinning medications
- Discontinue using products with Retinol
- Drink plenty of hydrating fluids
Because your treatment does not involve general anesthesia or sedation, there’s no need to worry about arranging for transportation or having someone drive you home after your treatment. On the day of your appointment, we request that you wear comfortable clothes.
Before we administer your injections, we will first cleanse and sanitize your target area thoroughly. A numbing cream is applied, and it will remain on your skin for about 20 minutes before it takes effect. As soon as you are ready to receive the injections, we will use a small needle to carefully inject the product into the right areas. You can expect to receive a series of injections at various sites.
You may be standing up or lying on your tummy during the injection process. When we have completed injecting the right amount of product into your target areas, we will massage the area to allow the product to ensure the even distribution of the product. Your treatment session can be completed in an hour.
Right after your treatment, you’ll notice an immediate increase in volume due to the injected product. This initial result will gradually subside in a few days after your treatment. We recommend that you continue to massage the treated area for about a week. This helps ensure that you achieve a fuller, more shapely appearance.
There’s no downtime for this treatment and you should be able to resume your normal daily activities. However, don’t forget to minimize strenuous activities or exposure to direct sunlight. By taking good care of your skin and minimizing stress, your body will respond to your treatment much sooner, and you’ll see a transformation that you’ll love.
Are You a Good Candidate?
If you want to have fuller buttocks and smoother hip contours, our non-surgical butt lift may be ideal for you. We recommend this option to those who are not considering surgery to improve the appearance and shape of their buttocks.
Additionally, if you do not qualify for a fat transfer procedure because you do not have enough excess fat, getting an injectable treatment to enhance your contours may be a good alternative for you.
