What is Sculptra BBL?

A Sculptra Brazilian Butt Lift is a non-surgical treatment that uses Sculptra Aesthetic, an injectable filler that stimulates collagen growth, to enhance the shape and size of the buttocks.

Unlike traditional surgery types, Sculptra is a type of treatment that requires no surgery and little to no downtime, making it a ideal option for those types of people who want to improve and further enhance their curves without the risks and potential complications associated with traditional surgery.

But how does it actually work? let's go over the process and benefits of how Sculptra works for Brazilian butt lifts.

Collagen Stimulation

Collage is a protein that is naturally produced by our bodies and this plays a crucial role in skin structure and elasticity. As we begin to age, our bodies produce less collagen which leads to our skin sagging and wrinkles.

With Sculptra fillers, it contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible substance that is injected into the skin. When injected, the PLLA micro-particles stimulate the production of collagen, which helps to add volume and firmness to the skin. With this, and our own body's natural healing process then gradually absorbs the PLLA micro-particles, leaving behind a network of collagen fibers that provide long-lasting support to the skin.

Gradual Results with a Natural Look

Unlike traditional butt lift surgeries, that require surgery, Sculptra Brazilian butt lift treatments require a number of injections ranging from several weeks to a couple of months in order to achieve the ideal optimal result. The benefit of this treatment is that it requires no surgery and multiple treatments are required over time so that your body's natural healing process to produce collagen and build volume.

The gradual nature of the treatment means that results look more natural and less obvious than when compared to traditional surgery options. In addition, the results of Sculptra Brazilian Butt Lifts can last up to 2 years or longer, compared to other short term traditional fillers.

Another great benefit of using Sculptra is that it requires no downtime.
