About Sculptra® Non-Surgical Butt-Lift
Sculptra® is the only treatment of its kind that increases the key structural component of healthy, vibrant skin: collagen. You already know that collagen plays an essential role in elastic and supple skin that’s free of fine lines, wrinkles and sagginess. But aging and gravity work to slow collagen production as well as destroy existing levels. In fact, collagen production slows way down by the time we’re in our mid to late 20s, and only gets slower from there. The skin everywhere on your face and body is affected and that includes your butt!
Sculptra® zeroes in on this very issue by working deep under the skin, within the dermis, to stimulate your body to produce more collagen. No matter how old you are, you’ll experience a healthier and faster production of collagen in the time following your treatment. The skin on your buttocks will smooth out, plump up and firm up as collagen levels increase. As your results appear gradually over the weeks and months after your treatment, it’ll be like you’re aging in reverse and your perfect butt will only look better and better.

Where can Sculptra® be used?
Sculptra® is Health Canada and FDA approved for facial application. Although any application of Sculptra® outside of the face is considered off-label, Skin Vitality offers the Sculptra® treatment for a non-surgical butt-lift. This is particularly due to the fact that Sculptra® provides different results than other dermal injections like Juvederm®.
Sculptra® smooths wrinkles by pushing up the area in between the dermis and the wrinkles. The final results immerge over the weeks following treatment, not immediately, to provide a less drastic change in appearance. A gradual, multiple injection process is appealing because the patient is not be shocked by any results and it doesn’t give away any signs of having the treatment done. It also gives the patient the option of how much volume they want in each area, without having to make a quick, rash decision.
Sculptra® injects something called poly-L-lactic acid into your dermal layers to kick-start your body’s natural collagen production mechanism. Since collagen is the protein that gives your skin its structure and shape, Sculptra® injections fill out the area under your butt with a curved shape that looks natural and fits with your body type.

How Does Sculptra® work?
Sculptra® is an injectable medical product that is based on a synthetic polymer called poly-L-lactic acid. This substance acts as a replacement for collagen. Poly-L-lactic acid, or PLLA, is totally biocompatible and biodegradable, so that it gets absorbed harmlessly.
When Sculptra® is injected into your skin, your body reacts to the PLLA microparticles by initiating the creation of collagen. Over time, collagen production in the injected area becomes more voluminous, causing the skin to plump out. Over time, the PLLA microparticles are metabolized and converted into carbon dioxide and water, which the body then simply expels through the respiratory system harmlessly.
Sculptra® is designed to increase volume, making it ideal to plump up your buttocks and make them perkier without surgery. Say goodbye to those butt-lifting exercises!
It is also effective in minimizing contour irregularities to smooth away undesirable ripples on your butt. Additional benefits:
The Sculptra® Butt-lift Treatment
Before your treatment, your health and goals will be assessed by a member of our medical team. You will find out how Sculptra® can help you, and how much Sculptra® you may need to achieve your expectations.
During your first procedure, you may find that only a limited amount of Sculptra® is injected. This is done to avoid overcorrection, which can cause undesirable results. After your first session, results will be assessed so the amount of product can be adjusted accordingly.
After each injection, the area(s) treated will be massaged. This allows the product to be more evenly distributed. A cool pack can also be applied to help reduce swelling and bruising. Since swelling can hide results, it’s important to wait for a few days to a couple of weeks for the swelling to subside and results can be assessed. Usually, a follow up is scheduled at 4 weeks or so.
Once your treatment regimen has been completed, results may last up to 2 years.

FAQ's About Sculptra®
Sculptra is an injectable cosmetic filler that can be used to restore volume loss. It contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible synthetic substance that stimulates collagen production. Sculptra is best suited for a non-invasive butt lift because you can get a fairly significant augmentation without actually using that much product.
Sculptra induces your own collagen to grow around the product. In other words, rather than hyaluronic acid fillers, which basically just pump more volume into your skin, Sculptra triggers your body to build up collagen around the PLLA.
Cost can range from $2,200-$3,500 per treatment, with most patients requiring 2-3 treatments spaced 6 weeks apart.
Sculptra Butt Lift results improve over time and results last from two to three years without a lengthy recovery period! For the greatest results, the average patient is recommended three or four sittings spaced every two or three months.
Because the Sculptra Butt Lift involves no invasive surgery, there is little pain associated with the injections. The recovery time is minimal, and the procedure is relatively painless. Patients are sometimes given a topical numbing agent to prevent any discomfort. Note that any soreness associated with the procedure is mild at most.
When you arrive for your appointment, you will be given a gown to wear and instructed to put it on.
Once you are laying down comfortably on your stomach, the area will be sterilized to reduce the risk of infection.
Depending on your preference, you may have an anesthetic applied topically to your butt to reduce any discomfort you feel during the injection.
The injection process itself will only take a few moments as Sculptra s injected into your buttocks.
After the injections are completed, you may receive a bandage on the area where the shots were inserted. You can get dressed as usual and are clear to drive immediately afterward.
Because Sculptra works to slowly boost your body’s collagen production, this process takes time; after Sculptra is injected, water mixed with the product absorbs over 1-2 days, and it appears that “nothing” was done. You may start seeing results in about 4-6 weeks, and it takes at least 3-4 months to see the full results of Sculptra.
Sculptra butt lift is sometimes called a “lunch break butt lift” because the appointment is a quick one, and you don’t have to plan to take time off from work to recover. You might be a little sore but that’s it. With a non-surgical butt-lift, you can go back to (almost) all of your normal activities same day. You shouldn’t go to the gym the first day, but resuming normal activities, like going back to work the same day is fine.
The exact time depends on the area being treated, but generally injections for Sculptra takes half an hour to forty-five minutes to complete.
Made up of poly-L-lactic acid in a base of sterile water, Sculptra works by stimulating collagen production, which helps restore the underlying structure of the skin. While this can take up to two months to occur, the increase in natural collagen lasts longer than most other injectable materials.
Depending on the number of treatment sessions performed, patients can typically enjoy their Sculptra Aesthetic results for up to two years. After this period, the new tissue may begin to break down and be absorbed. How fast this process occurs for each patient will depend on factors such as their genetics, sun exposure, tobacco use, and other lifestyle habits.
