Sculptra Aesthetic is a FDA-approved synthetic sugar made up of multiple individual lactic acid units which is a naturally occuring substance in the body. Also known as Poly-L-Lactic Acid, this dermal filler is used to help stimulate the body’s natural collagen, resulting in a lifted, smoother appearance.
Originally used to restore youth back into the face, doctors have later learned that this filler can be used beyond the face and can help improve the lower half of the body like the hips and buttocks through a series of non-invasive treatments.
Unlike traditional fillers, Sculptra stimulates the body’s natural collagen when injected deep into the dermis of the skin. This dermal filler starts as a powder which is then combined with a sterile water which allows the product to be injected into the skin. This is done about 1 week prior to your initial treatment to help ensure accurate dispersion and adequate hydration. Once you complete your Sculptra treatment, your body will work to absorb the solution within the next 24-48 hours while leaving behind the strategically placed particles of Sculptra. Naturally, your body will work to envelop the Sculptra with your own fresh, young collagen.
Patients may experience mild tenderness, soreness and slight discomfort which can be relieved with Tylenol. Temporary swelling and bruising may occur in the treated areas and can take up to two weeks to completely resolve. We recommend our patients take Arnica Montana to help avoid bruising and to steer clear of Ibuprofen, Aspirin and Omega Fish Oils one to two weeks prior to injection.
Considering multiple treatments are necessary for visible results, patients are expected to undergo ongoing sessions in the span of 6 months. Over the course of your treatments, the Sculptra will build up overtime, providing natural, contoured results.
The specific amount of treatments needed varies from patient to patient. This is because all patients have individual starting points and optimal results. We require all those interested to come in for a free consultation so that we can tailor your treatment to best fit your needs.
The price tag on our Sculptra treatment is based on our patients individual goals. The total cost of your overall Sculptra treatment will be determined in your consultation, where you will gain a better understanding of the treatment and process as a whole. This consultation will determine how many treatments are needed along with how much product is required to help reach optimal results.
The Sculptra Butt Lift will not only give you that hourglass figure and plump buttocks you’ve been sweating for in the gym but will also help reduce cellulite, correct hollows, improve stretch marks and highlight your natural contours.
