How does the Sculptra Butt Lift work?
Sculptra injections work to restore youthful contours by providing a significant increase in both volume and skin thickness. Strategically creating collagen in specific areas allows us to sculpt the buttocks and hips while highlighting your natural contours.
Sculptra begins as a powder and mixed with sterile water that allows it to be injected. This must be done about a week prior to treatment to ensure proper hydration of the material and accurate dispersion of the product. Once injected, your body will absorb the sterile water solution 24-48 hours post-treatment, leaving behind strategically placed particles of Sculptra, and that’s when the magic happens. Your body’s natural response to the Sculptra is to encapsulate it with biospheres of your own fresh, young collagen.
What is the downtime associated with this treatment?
There is no downtime required after treatment.
All patients are encouraged to perform their post-treatment massage for about 5 minutes, up to 5 times a day for 7-10 days. This helps accelerate results and ensure the treated area is smooth.
When will I see results from my treatment?
Immediately after treatment, you will get a sneak peak of the end result; however what you are seeing is just the sterile water that we use to mix the Sculptra into an injectable form. Optimal results take anywhere between six weeks to three months to appear.
How many treatments will I need?
Although the results are achieved gradually, the changes improve over time with repeated treatment.The effects of Sculptra will build up over the course of each treatment, providing a natural and undetectable improvement in the desired area(s). Now you can create more projection, volume, and a subtle lift in as little as 2-3 treatment sessions. Additional treatments may be needed to achieve desired results.
What can I expect from my treatment?
Prior To Treatment
All patients are required to come in for their free consultation. This allows you to dicuss your concerns, problem areas and ideal results with our body contouring specialists. Additionally, this gives the injector the opportunity to answer any questions you may have, provide additional information, assess your current issues and create a customized treatment plan.
Our body contouring specialist will begin by marking up the soon to be treated area to act as a guide for each injection. Then, the injections are administered. We add local anesthetic, lidocaine, to the Sculptra mix before injection to ensure we alleviate discomfort. Following each session, you will need to perform a post-treatment massage. At BeautyFix, we include this as part of your service and will teach you how to perform this massage at home.
What are the side effects of this treatment?
Like all injections, temporary swelling and bruising may occur.Bruising tends to happen in the treatment area and can take up to two weeks to resolve itself. To help avoid this we recommend you start taking Arnica Montana as well as avoiding aspirin, ibuprofen, and omega fish oils a week or two prior to injection.
Like all injections, temporary swelling and bruising may occur and are expected to resolve itself. The most commonly reported side effects are soreness and mild discomfort, similar to that of a rigorous workout, that can be alleviated with Tylenol. Patients are advised to avoid Aspirin, Ibuprofen and Omega Fish oils 1-2 weeks prior to injection. Arnica may be taken prior to and after treatment to help with bruising.
