With age, we tend to notice a lack of supporting tissue, as well as a loss of shape and volume in areas such as the buttocks. Many people turn to surgical fat transfers that are invasive, but not everyone wants to go for a treatment like this. A Sculptra® butt lift could be the answer if you’re looking for a minimally-invasive way to lift and firm your butt. Get in touch with the team at RefineU MedSpa in Oklahoma City, OK if you would like to learn more. Our professionals would be more than happy to schedule you for a consultation — contact us today!
About the Treatment
The Sculptra® butt lift does not require surgical incision, and is instead administered through direct injection into the buttocks. Many people prefer this treatment over something more invasive, as it is not permanent, has minimal downtime, and offers natural results. Results can last up to three years.
What Is It?
Sculptra® is an FDA-cleared dermal filler used for treatment of volume loss. It is a poly-L-lactic acid injectable filler and works more gradually than other types of filler by stimulating collagen production over the course of several months.
What to Expect during Treatment?
A single session of this treatment takes about one hour to complete with no downtime involved for the patient. The effects of the Sculptra® Butt Lift happen gradually, at a rate that looks and feels natural.
An immediate plumping effect can be noticed after the poly-L-lactic acid injections have been performed, and that’s because they also contain water. A few days later the microparticles are absorbed into the skin and the body begins reproducing lost collagen, and the results can be noticed subtly and gradually.
A patient can expect to return home after their session has been completed. However, 2-5 sessions may be required for the treatment to be completed entirely. Each session will be spaced out two to four to six weeks apart.
Who Is a Candidate?
To find out if you are a candidate, you will need to have a consultation. If you have flat buttocks or notice things like cellulite dimples or stretch marks on the area, you may be a candidate for the Sculptra® Butt Lift. There may be alternatives if this treatment isn’t deemed a good fit for you.
What Results Can Be Expected?
A Sculptra® butt lift can help to add volume, smooth out cellulite dimples, and improve the skin’s overall texture when injected into the buttocks. You may be advised to massage the area for five minutes, five times a day for a few days to help the treated area and improve the results.
