What is Sculptra Booty?
Sculptra Booty is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that uses the injectable dermal filler Sculptra to enhance the appearance of the buttocks. Sculptra is a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) filler that is injected into the deep dermis of the buttocks to add volume and shape to the area.
Sculptra Booty is considered a non-surgical alternative to traditional buttock augmentation surgery and it's less invasive, with less recovery time.
How does it work?
When Sculptra is injected into the buttocks, it stimulates collagen production in the area. Collagen is a protein that is responsible for the strength and elasticity of the skin, and as it increases, it helps to plump up the area and add volume.
The treatment is performed by injecting Sculptra into the deep dermis of the buttocks using a fine needle or cannula. The procedure typically takes about 30 minutes to complete, and it's considered less invasive than traditional buttock augmentation surgery.
Unlike other dermal fillers, Sculptra works gradually, and the results may not be immediately visible. It usually takes several weeks to a couple of months for the full effects of the treatment to become apparent. The treatment may require multiple sessions for optimal results.
Does it hurt?
It is normal to experience some discomfort during the procedure. However, the level of pain can vary from person to person, and the practitioner may use a numbing cream or ice pack to help reduce pain and discomfort.
Some people may experience mild discomfort or pain during the injection, while others may experience minimal pain or discomfort. The pain is usually described as a slight pinching sensation that lasts for a few seconds. After the treatment, you may experience some mild discomfort or soreness at the injection site.
What can I expect?
During the procedure, a small amount of Sculptra is injected into the buttocks using a fine needle. The procedure is generally well-tolerated and does not require any downtime. The results of Sculptra booty procedures are gradual and can take several weeks to become fully visible. It's important to schedule a consultation with a us to determine if this is the right procedure for you.
How do I prepare?
Here are a few things you can do to prepare for a Sculptra booty procedure:

Avoid taking blood-thinning medications, such as aspirin, for at least a week before the procedure to reduce the risk of bleeding or bruising.
Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing to the appointment and avoid tight-fitting clothing or underwear that may put pressure on the treated area.
Avoid alcohol and any kind of anti-inflammatory medications, such as ibuprofen, for at least 24 hours before the procedure.
It's important to follow our instructions carefully to minimize any potential risks and to ensure the best possible outcome.
Are there side effects?
The most common side effects of Sculptra injections are mild and short-lived, such as swelling, redness, pain, itching, and bruising at the injection site. These side effects typically resolve within a few days to a week.
Other possible side effects include:
Lumps or nodules under the skin: These can occur if the Sculptra is not injected correctly. They can be felt as small lumps under the skin and can be visible as small bumps.
Asymmetry: Sculptra can be injected unevenly, which can result in asymmetry.
Granulomas: These are rare but can happen, it's a small, benign growth that can occur at the site of the injection.
Infection: Any injection comes with a risk of infection, that's why it's important to have your procedure done by a licensed and experienced practitioner.
Hypersensitivity: Rarely, some people may have an allergic reaction to Sculptra.
It's important to keep in mind that Sculptra is a non-surgical procedure, therefore the recovery time is minimal, and the side effects are usually mild.
