If you’re looking for a way to add more definition to your butt but don’t want to have to undergo surgery, you may be wondering what your options are. At RefineU Medspa in Oklahoma City, OK, our Sculptra butt lift treatments might be exactly what you need.
How Much Sculptra Is Needed for a Sculptra Butt Lift?
Are you unhappy with how flat your butt looks? Want effective results without needing to go under the knife? Sculptra is an injectable dermal filler that is most well-known for its ability to fill in areas of the face but can also be used on other parts of the body.
One of the areas where you can get injections is your butt. By filling in the area, this product will lift it and enhance the natural curves of your butt. The amount of this product that will be necessary depends on a few factors, but most people will require around four vials for a minor lift.
What Exactly Is Sculptra?
This is a dermal filler that is applied to the targeted areas of your body using a fine and precise needle. It was first approved by the FDA in 2004 to treat a loss of facial fat in patients with HIV. This fat loss causes hollowness and deep folds in the face.
A decade later, it was approved to treat cosmetic concerns related to volume loss and wrinkling in the face, along with other areas of the body. Its main ingredient is poly-l-lactic acid or PLLA.
Why Is My Skin Thinning?
Your skin contains several chemicals that help it stay full and elastic. When you’re young, you have high levels of these chemicals, which is why a full, round face is often a marker of youth. However, as you get older, your skin becomes less effective at producing them.
These chemicals include collagen and elastin, proteins that help your skin maintain its structure and stay elastic, and hyaluronic acid, a sugar that provides fullness and hydration. The less well your body produces these chemicals, the more you are going to see a loss of volume in the skin all over your body.
What Does PLLA Do?
When it’s injected into the skin, this dermal filler’s main ingredient works to stimulate collagen. By encouraging your body to produce its own collagen rather than simply filling in the space, you’ll get much longer-lasting and more effective results from your treatment.
What Is Getting Treatment Like?
Before Your Appointment
Before you can receive your injections, there are a few things that you should know. We’ll have a consultation with you before your treatment to go over your medical history as well as your goals and expectations to ensure that this is the right treatment for you.
We’ll also let you know what you’ll need to do to prepare for your Sculptra butt lift. Preparations will be minimal, but it’s still important that you do them so we can all ensure your treatment is as safe and effective as possible. Specifically, you’ll need to avoid substances that could thin your blood and encourage bruising. This includes alcohol, tobacco, medications like aspirin, and some supplements.
When you arrive at our clinic, you can trust that you’re getting your treatment from a team of knowledgeable and caring practitioners who will work hard to make your experience the best it can be. We’ll begin by cleaning your skin to remove any oil, grime, and bacteria that may have built up prior to your appointment. We may also apply numbing cream to the area to help keep treatment comfortable.
Once your skin is ready, we’ll start applying the injections. You may feel a slight pinch as the product is applied. We’ll use multiple injections of small amounts of the filler at a time to help us ensure that your butt lift is natural-looking and that you get the specific results you want.
After Your Appointment
A Sculptra butt lift is non-invasive which means you can get back to your regular life as soon as it’s done. We’ll make sure that you know what you need to do to help your skin recover. It’s important to follow these steps to get the full results you want.
You’ll need to avoid alcohol and tobacco for the next few days, as well as any strenuous physical activity or anything that might make you sweat a lot. You should also avoid direct sunlight on the area as your skin is going to be much more sensitive and prone to burning.
What Else Can Sculptra Treat?
One of the main areas of the face that this filler can help with is the cheeks. When you’re young, you have round, full cheeks. But as you get older and start to lose volume, this makes your face look hollower.
You can get injections of this filler in the area to help add back in the fullness that you may have lost. This is going to help your face look overall younger and healthier. It can also add more definition to your cheekbones.
As your skin naturally loses collagen and elastin, you’re going to notice more and more sagging as your skin becomes looser. One area where this will likely be particularly noticeable is your jawline. The more your skin sags, the more prominent things like jowls will become.
You may not appreciate the way your jowls have affected your overall appearance. They can make you look far older than you feel inside. To help reduce their appearance, you can get this filler to lift your cheeks which will, in turn, smooth out your jawline and add more definition.
If your nose lacks definition or if you’re looking for an effective way to even out a crooked nose, this injectable is the perfect option.
Because it’s non-invasive, it offers a great way to get the results that you would from a rhinoplasty without needing to go under the knife. Enjoy a more defined, even nose when you get this treatment.
Wrinkles tend to show up quickly around areas that are quite mobile. This is why the mouth area is often one of the first to show major signs of wrinkling. The lines that appear between your nose and mouth are called nasolabial folds.
You may have also heard them referred to as smile lines or laugh lines. They can dramatically age the way that you look. If you’d like to reduce them, you can get this injectable to stimulate collagen production and keep your skin elastic and wrinkle-free.
Over time, your chin is going to lose volume, just like the rest of your face. This can significantly weaken the overall appearance of your jawline.
If you don’t like the way your weak chin looks and you want to add in more fullness, then consider getting this injectable. Your chin will be much firmer and better defined.
One of the reasons why so many doctors love this treatment option is because of its versatility. Along with your face and butt, you can also target areas like your:
When Will I See the Results?
Regardless of whether you’re getting this treatment as part of a Sculptra butt lift or you’re treating part of your face, it will take the same amount of time to see your results. Results will come on gradually, helping them seem as natural as possible.
Most people can expect to see the full results of their treatment within three to four months of their injections.
How Long Do Results Last?
If you’re looking for something long-lasting without needing to worry about getting a surgical procedure, this is the treatment option for you. While some fillers and injectables last for only a few months, this treatment option will provide you with results for much longer.
Most people can expect to enjoy their results for up to two years. You can help your results last as long as possible by keeping up with a healthy skincare routine as well as an overall healthy lifestyle.
