Sculptra Butt Lift

The Sculptra Butt Lift is an injectable treatment designed to enhance the shape and lift of the butt by increasing the collagen volume in targeted areas--leading to a rounder, subtly lifted, more shapely backside. There is no surgery, no downtime, and no scalpel involved. It works by stimulating your body's own collagen, leading to a gradual increase in volume that, in many people, can last for 2-3 years.  

Sculptra Butt Lift

The traditional "BBL" is a surgical procedure involving liposuction and fat grafting for body reshaping. Because it is an invasive procedure, patients often have 1-2 weeks of recovery time afterwards, and as with all surgical procedures, it carries the risks of anesthesia and surgical complications. The Sculptra Butt Lift is a nonsurgical injectable treatment designed to give a more subtle, natural-looking enhancement without the risks or downtime of surgery.  

How does it work?
Sculptra is an injectable solution containing poly-L lactic acid (PLLA) which, over time, stimulates your body's own collagen response to increase volume in targeted areas of the face or body. Sculptra Aesthetic is FDA approved in the U.S. and has been used worldwide since 1999. It is injected into targeted areas of the butt over two quick treatments about 6 weeks apart. Results appear gradually over the treatment course and in many people, can last two years or more. 

Who is this procedure for?
The Sculptra BBL is great for slender and athletic body types, and those experiencing sagging or flatness. It may not be the best option for every body type, and results may vary--your practitioner will evaluate your needs at your consultation to determine if this is right for you.

What happens during the procedure?
During a Sculptra Butt Lift procedure, your provider will first assess and map out the treatment area while having either standing or lying down. Next, a topical numbing cream is applied so that discomfort is often fairly minimal. After the numbing cream takes effect, your provider will have you lay flat and will begin to inject and massage the Sculptra into the targeted areas. The number of injections needed varies person to person, based on the distribution of the volume needed. 

Your treatment plan is based on your individual needs and desired outcome, and so the number of treatments may vary. In general, a Sculptra Butt Lift usually requires 2-3 sessions. These sessions are generally spaced about 6 weeks apart, depending on the recommended treatment plan. Luckily for you your conulstation at Juvly Aesthetics is free.
