What is Sculptra for Cellulite?

Sculptra is an injectable dermal filler made up of poly-L-lactic acid that helps gradually replace lost collagen in order to smooth lines and wrinkles that come with aging.

While Sculptra is primarily used in facial esthetic procedures to contour and rejuvenate the face, it is also highly effective at smoothing cellulite on the buttocks.

In the same way that other popular cosmetic procedures utilize dermal fillers to reduce wrinkles and sagging skin on the face and neck, Sculptra does the same with your bum in order to treat cellulite. 

Sculptra is ideal for a variety of procedures on the face and body because it does more than just create volume as a filler. It also stimulates your body to boost collagen production.

Collagen is a protein that makes up most of the connective tissues in our bodies.

It is what gives skin shape and structure. By boosting your collagen levels, Sculptra reduces cellulite and wrinkles on your body for a smoother, more toned appearance.

What is Cellulite and Why Do I Have It? 

Many women look at their stomach, butt, thighs, and upper arms and notice a dimpled or puckered texture on their skin. This is normal. Unlike what you may have been led to believe, cellulite is not the same as fat and weight loss won’t get rid of all of it.

Cellulite occurs when the female body’s necessary fatty tissues push through the fibrous bands that connect skin to muscle. These bands pull down on the skin, creating a dimpled texture. 

Cellulite is a normal feature that occurs because of the unique way that women store fat in their bodies.

Whereas in men, the bands that hold their connective tissue under the skin are arranged in more of a zigzag pattern, which does not result in a dimpled texture on the skin. 

This means that 80-90% of women and some men have cellulite.

If you have cellulite and how much you have is primarily determined by genetics. This means that even really fit people and celebrities have it. However, many women feel self-conscious about their cellulite, believe that it means they are fat, or are too ashamed of their bodies to wear a bikini at the beach.

    If I Don’t Like My Cellulite, Can It Be Treated?

    If your natural cellulite is negatively impacting your self-esteem, it is possible to reduce it. Exercise can tone the body to tighten muscles and skin in order to slightly reduce cellulite. Topical creams may also help to smooth cellulite. 

    A great option to smooth skin on the butt and thighs is Sculptra for cellulite. In the same way that a board-certified physician may use dermal fillers to sculpt out your chin, fill in your temples, and rejuvenate your hands, it is also possible to utilize dermal fillers like Sculptra to smooth cellulite on the butt. Not only does Sculptra treat cellulite, it also lifts your butt to achieve a perkier, yet proportional behind. 

    If your cellulite is negatively impacting your self-esteem, then Dr. Qazi can help. At Qazi Cosmetic Clinic in Orange County, CA, we specialize in making you feel sexy, confident, and excited to wear a bikini at the beach.

    Qazi Cosmetic Clinic offers Sculptra for cellulite as well as a variety of other cosmetic procedures for both face and body. Whatever your aesthetic goals are, Dr. Nadir Qazi will work with you to make you feel beautiful.

    Commonly Asked Questions About Sculptra for Cellulite

    Does it work?

    Yes! Sculptra is an effective non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that eliminates cellulite, lifts your butt, and improves both the shape and texture of your thighs as well. 

    Who is a good candidate for this procedure? 

    Anyone with cellulite who wants to treat it safely and effectively is a good candidate for Sculptra. It is better for candidates who are physically healthy and do not smoke. 

    Sculptra is ideal for people who have lost volume in that area due to aging or weight fluctuations. 

    How long does it last?

    Like most dermal fillers, Sculptra is not permanent. The body will dissolve fillers after a few years, so a follow up appointment may be required. Sculptra for cellulite lasts 2-3 years. 

    What is a California Buttlift™ and how does it use Sculptra? 

    The California Buttlift™ is a safe, non-surgical cosmetic procedure that will give you a firmer, more toned, smoother butt with no need for surgery and no recovery time. The California Buttlift™ uses injectable fillings – namely Sculptra or Radiesse – to smooth cellulite and give your butt a natural-looking lift. 

    If you want to smooth your cellulite and boost your bum at the same time, then the California Buttlift™ is the perfect procedure for you. In addition to giving you volume and smoother skin with a dermal filler, Dr. Qazi may supplement the procedure with additional body sculpting treatment.

    Our HD Sculpt™ System uses direct electrical muscle stimulation to cause rapid, targeted muscle contractions in the butt. It is similar to doing thousands of squats in forty-five minutes The result is reduced fat calls and increased muscle tone. This body sculpting treatment is included with a California Buttlift™ to achieve greater volume and firmness.

      How is a California Buttlift™ different from a Brazilian Butt Lift? 

      A Brazilian Butt Lift is a surgical procedure where liposuction is used to remove fat from other areas of the body, like the stomach, then that fat is transplanted onto the glutes to enlarge them. This procedure has one of the highest death rates of all aesthetic procedures because there is a very high risk of complications. 

      One of the factors that makes the Brazilian Butt Lift so risky is that injecting fat into the buttocks can lead to serious problems if done incorrectly. Risks include a fat embolism, which occurs when fat is accidentally injected into the bloodstream and it blocks a blood vessel. If this occurs in the lungs or in the brain, it can be fatal. 

      Because it is necessary for a patient to have enough fat to transfer to the butt, a Brazilian Butt Lift is only for patients who are also seeking a weight loss treatment in addition to a butt augmentation procedure.

      In contrast, the California Buttlift™ is non-surgical, non-invasive, and relatively quick and painless. Patients of any build can get a California Buttlift™ to boost their bum and reduce cellulite. Unlike a Brazilian Butt Lift, a California Buttlift™ is designed to give the butt a firmer and more rounded appearance that looks natural and fits your frame. 

      Not only is the California Buttlift™ significantly faster and more comfortable, it also has fewer risks. Unlike with implants that are used in other butt enhancement procedures, this buttlift utilizes Sculptra fillers that work with your body to stimulate the production of collagen. The result is that there is no risk of foreign implants becoming oversized, deflated, or uneven because fillers stay in place and can be dissolved by your body over time.

      If you have heard horror stories about butt cosmetic procedures, don’t worry! Sculptra for cellulite and booty boosting is a uniquely safe, natural-looking, and effective cosmetic procedure.

      If you have questions or concerns about the procedure, let Dr. Nadir Qazi put your mind at ease. Please contact Dr. Nadir Qazi at Qazi Cosmetic Clinic in Orange County to schedule a consultation today. 

      About the Procedure: Dr. Qazi’s Process for Treating Cellulite 

      Dr. Qazi’s California Buttlift™ is ideal for treating cellulite and lifting your butt.

      This procedure is unique because it is fast, comfortable, and has no downtime for recovery, unlike other butt enhancement procedures. If you discussed your aesthetic goals with Dr. Qazi during your consultation and decided that Sculptra filler injections are ideal for you, then your second appointment at Qazi Cosmetic Clinic will likely go like this: 

      1. After you arrive at our comfortable Orange County office, you will be escorted to one of our clean and private treatment rooms. In order for Dr. Qazi to access the area that he will be treating, you will be asked to wear a luxurious robe, remove your pants, and lie on the treatment table.

      2. In preparation for the injections, Dr. Qazi’s team will begin by sterilizing the area using a hospital grade betadine solution to reduce the risk of infection. 

      3. For the most precise treatment possible, Dr. Qazi will use a skin-safe surgical marker to mark the injection sites. The location of the injections are customized to your body and your particular goals. 

      4. Next, Dr. Qazi will use a blunt cannula to safely inject Sculptra into the marked locations on your butt while avoiding vessels. This will only take a few minutes and is nearly painless. If you have any concerns about pain or discomfort during the procedure, talk to Dr. Qazi about your concerns and he will find a way to make you as comfortable as possible. 

      5. After the injections, Dr. Qazi may supplement the procedure by using our groundbreaking HD Sculpt™ System to deliver high-intensity, focused electromagnetic waves to the body. If you want your butt to be larger and firmer in addition to smoothing cellulite, an HD Sculpt™ treatment may be right for you. This process is completely painless. It is designed to stimulate your muscles for improved results, including destroying fat cells, increasing muscle mass, and making your butt firmer and stronger. 

      6. After the procedure, Dr. Qazi will bandage the injection sites and give you your personalized aftercare instructions.

      You are safe to drive yourself home immediately after the procedure! It is recommended that you avoid strenuous exercise and alcohol for several days after the procedure. After you have had adequate time to recover, you will be safe to return to your #fitnessjourney. 

      What Happens After the Procedure? 

      It may take as many as 5 sessions for you to reach your goals. After your last injection appointment, it will take some time for Sculptra to stimulate your body’s natural collagen production to produce results. It normally takes between 4 and 6 months for the results to show. 

      Dermal fillers are not permanent because the body will eventually dissolve the filler. Because of this, Sculptra only lasts 2 to 3 years before you will require another round of injections. 

      What Are the Possible Side Effects? 

      Because Sculptra is a safe, non-invasive cosmetic procedure, there are very few possible side effects. Some patients have reported:

      • Bruising or redness
      • Lumps or bumps in the butt that smooth over time
      • Slight bleeding at the injection site
      • Itching or rash 
      • Temporary breakouts near the injection site 

      Side effects are very uncommon with Sculptra. If you experience any of these side effects after the procedure, you should call Dr. Qazi at Qazi Cosmetic Clinic right away.
