What is Sculptra?
Sculptra has been relaunched back to the UK in the last few year with a new and improved formula that tackles loose, crepey skin and add volume. The treatment will improve your skin texture by activating collagen production and revitalising the skin’s structural foundation. The natural-looking results last for at least 25 months from the last treatment and gradually boosts your skin quality and thickness. Sculptra® is the only FDA approved poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) treatment that allows patients to build longer lasting volume gradually over time. Poly-L-lactic acid is found naturally occurring in your muscles after a workout. Like in the muscles, this chemical causes tissue repair and revitalisation in the skin.
Sculptra was the only skin volumizing treatment before the launch of dermal fillers in the 90’s. It has one of the safest profiles of all skin treatments and gives you natural, result, improving elasticity and skin tightness without the complications of fillers or surgical intervention.
What are the benefits of Sculptra?
Numerous clinical trials have shown patient satisfaction at a high with 86% still feeling the benefits with smoother healthier-looking skin at 25 months post-treatment.
Sculptra can target any face and body concern. At Look Lovely London we not only treat the face but have had significant training and experience in the Sculptra Butt lift. The Sculptra butt lift offers fantastic gradual results to lift, tone, project and improve skin quality in the buttock area. In clinical tests there was a 66% increase in the skins collagen 3 months after a treatment.
What is the Sculptra Butt lift?
Buttock augmentations have increased by 98% in the last 3 years making enhancements one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the UK and abroad. The Sculptra butt lift can give you a rounder, curvier butt, however is different to The Surgical Butt Lift (BBL) being safter and more natural. Sculptra can bring proportion and contouring to the buttock area and offer a subtle lift, however unlike surgery, Sculptra does not involve removing fat elsewhere in the body to place in the buttocks. Increasingly the public are understanding the high risks involved in surgery in this area. Patients are now opting for more natural and safe results which is achieved by using Sculptra, being minimally invasive with no down-time.
There has also been a trend to move away from the filler butt lift which involves placing large amounts of man-made filler (hyaluronic acid) into the area which can be displaced and create a lumpy over-filled or fake look if incorrectly administered. Sculptra is different to filler as it is a water-based biostimulator which can help you achieve a lifted, smoother butt or even your dream upside down heart shape butt by stimulating your own body to make collagen in the area.
So, if you are concerned about a saggy butt that has flattened around the top with an increase gluteal fold or stretch marks and cellulite then the Sculptra butt lift could be your perfect treatment. It’s natural and can help with buttock related issues resulting from increasing age, weight loss, muscle wastage and pregnancy. The treatment can help restore your pert bottom back to how it was 10 years ago.
Sculptra butt treatments can help restore your confidence on the beach or around the pool. Within 2/3 months visibly improved skin with volume restoration, tightness, and a subtle lift are noted. And the good news is Sculptra is one of the longest-lasting aesthetic treatments in the industry
How does Sculptra work?
Sculptra contains Poly-L-Lactic acid which is found naturally occurring in our body in muscles. The Poly-L-Lactic acid once injected gently restores the skin’s structure and barrier by stimulating collagen and elastin production. When the product is injected, it creates a gentle inflammatory process which then starts a healing cascade with the production of collagen in the skin.
Collagen is so important to the skin as it helps to maintain the skin’s shape whilst keeping it smooth and hydrated. Collagen declines at 1-2 % per year in the skin as we age. As the collagen reduces in the skin the inner structure weakens, reducing its ability to maintain elasticity and moisture. This weakened inner structure can lead to sagging, wrinkles and a drop in tissues. This happens in all areas in the body but is seen most obviously in the face and the buttocks.
Having a Sculptra treatment naturally restores your skin’s own collagen production giving you a more youthful-looking pert, smooth and curvy bottom. The results are natural and gradual developing over a few months- no one needs to guess you’ve had a treatment but everyone will comment on how fabulous you look in a bikini or trunks.

What to expect on the day?
After a thorough consultation with your practitioner, we will assess if you are suitable for Sculptra. We will ask you to stand in your pants with the cheeks visible to assess where the product should be injected. We will ask you to tense and relax the gluteus muscle with ensure we address your specific concerns be it volume loss, buttock drop (intragluteal fold) loss of lateral contour (hip dip) or poor skin texture.
The area will be cleaned, marked up and you will be numbed in specific injection points to ensure the treatment is entirely comfortable. Each cheek will have -5 small injections sites where the sculptra will be gentle placed. The cheeks will them be massaged to incorporate the product into the area.
The actual treatment will take around 20 minutes but we allow an hour per treatment sessions to give you time for your questions to be answered and after-care advise given.
There is no -down time and you can return to your normal daily activities. We ask you to massage the area for 5 minutes twice daily for 10 days to optimise the treatment.
Generally, 2 sessions are needed 4-6 weeks apart and then stand-alone sessions can be offered at the 12-month mark to ensure the lifted, smooth results are further enhanced and long-lasting. Some patients may need 4-6 sessions depending on the degree of laxity. While patients may notice some degree of change immediate, the results continue to improve and much more noticeable definition will start to show after 4-8 weeks. The full effect of the treatment can take up to three – six months to show significantly.
After the treatment you may have small spot bruises and possible tenderness but this will clear over the next few days. You will not have any discomfort sitting down. You may feel some swelling and instant volumisation but this will settle. You can resume your normal exercise regime within a couple of days
