The Sculptra Butt Lift Could Be Perfect for You
Have you been yearning for a fuller backside but do not qualify for fat transfer procedures because you lack excess fat? Or do you just want a non-surgical way to make your butt perfect? If that describes you, you’re in the right place. Artful Aesthetics offers the Sculptra Butt Lift to help you achieve that plump and round behind you’ve always wanted.
What is the Sculptra Butt Lift?
It’s a butt enhancing treatment that uses Sculptra, an injection that uses poly-L-lactic acid to stimulate the body to produce more natural collagen. Initially, the treatment was specifically designed for facial enhancement, but it has also been proven to be highly effective in butt lifts. If you’re still sitting on the fence about it, here are a few signs a Sculptra Butt Lift could be perfect for you.
1. You Have No Fat to Transfer
Most patients are now looking for non-surgical options for butt augmentation. Most of the patients who look for such treatment don’t have adequate fat to transfer from one part of the body to another. If you’re more petite, then you don’t need a fat transfer at all.
With this treatment, we will simply find the right spot to inject the Sculptra solution into your backside. This means you can still enjoy a plump behind even if you don’t have excess fat deposits.
2. You Want No Recovery Time
Since a Sculptra Butt Lift only involves injections, there is no set downtime. Most patients often report resuming their usual activities after treatment without any adverse effects. Immediately after treatment, you may experience some minor side effects from the injections, but they fade away after a short while. The good news also is that every patient receives personalized treatment. As such, you’re adequately prepared on how to get ready before and after treatment. This ensures you optimize your results.
3. You’re Budget-Conscious
A Sculptra Butt Lift is affordable, making it suitable if you are on a budget. Since you don’t have to undergo complicated surgeries, you can get your desired butt shape without breaking the bank. Most clinics charge based on the number of syringes you get.
You may also get numerous discounts and perks if you get all your treatments in one clinic. So, make sure you choose the right clinic with the right specialists.
Getting your desired backside should not be costly, risky or time-consuming. A Sculptra Butt Lift gives you an opportunity to make your wish a reality.
Laser Treatments Can Work Wonders On Your Skin
As people age, exposure of the skin to sunlight and oxygen combined with the natural aging process causes characteristic changes to the skin and facial contour, including uneven pigmentation, lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, and a loss of facial volume. At this point, many people think their only option is to get a surgical facelift. However, nowadays, we have various alternatives to surgical facelifts, one of them being laser treatments.
A Closer Look at Laser Treatments
As the name suggests, laser treatments use laser energy in different modes to lift and tighten the skin, smooth out the pigmentation, and enhance the skin’s texture and appearance. The laser energy also stimulates the skin to produce more collagen and elastin, which can add volume to the face without the need for fillers. Laser treatments are versatile in that they can be used to address a number of different issues and provide a wide range of benefits.
A laser treatment can be used to improve the uniformity of the pigmentation in the skin. A laser treatment designed to penetrate deeply into the skin and to break up clumps of pigment can be applied to restore a more youthful-looking complexion.
Laser and other forms of energy can also be applied to other parts of the skin, including under the jaw and the neck, using a wavelength that causes collagen to tighten and contract, lifting and smoothing the skin.
Here at Artful Aesthetics, we are proud to offer a number of laser treatments for patients to choose from. Services include laser skin rejuvenation, IPL photofacial by Venus Versa, Clear and Brilliant, Thermage CPT, and more.
Repair Damaged Skin with a Vampire Facelift
A Vampire Facelift involves injecting platelet-rich plasma (PRP) into multiple parts of the face using specialized techniques. The PRP is prepared from a patient’s own blood in a simple, quick, in-office procedure. PRP is rich in growth factors and cytokines, and it stimulates the tissues to heal and rejuvenate, repairing damage caused by the sun and aging. It induces the production of collagen and elastin to improve the texture and springiness of the skin, as well as providing a volumizing effect.
These treatments are performed in the comfort of our office. No set recovery or downtime is required after the treatment. Depending on the situation and the issues you’d like to address, a series of treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired results. This is the case with a number of aesthetic treatments. The results may begin to be apparent immediately after each treatment, but they just get better over time. Because the Vampire Facelift induces natural healing and rejuvenation processes to occur, its results are not usually apparent until sometime after the treatment, but they continue to improve for months after completion of the treatment. A touch-up treatment as needed is usually suggested to maintain the desired results.
If you have been considering a surgical facelift, you owe it to yourself to consider the Vampire Facelift. It’s a safe, non-surgical way to rejuvenate your appearance and minimize various signs of aging. With that being said, it can’t replace a surgical facelift. However, it may be used to prolong the results of a facelift or to extend the time until a facelift is needed.
Smooth Your Skin with Cellulite Treatments
No matter what products you use to take care of your skin, there may come a point when you begin to develop the unwanted condition known as cellulite. This cosmetic issue is especially common near the midsection, but it can take place practically anywhere on the body. For those who continue to struggle with cellulite, it might be time to consider cellulite treatments. Unlike creams and ointments, cellulite treatments will address the root causes of this condition in order to create long-term results.
What Causes Cellulite?
Cellulite is much more complex than most people realize. While an individual’s weight does play a role in this condition, it is not the only variable to consider. Just below the surface of the skin are stiff bands of connective tissue. When fat cells push through the connective bands of tissue, it causes ripples and dimples that are known as cellulite.
Quite a few different factors affect when and where an individual develops cellulite. Both sexes can have cellulite, but it is much more common among women. It also occurs much more frequently in those who have relatively sedentary lifestyles. Unfortunately, even patients who stay within a healthy weight range can still develop this condition.
Downsides of Surgical Cellulite Treatments
There are quite a few different surgical treatments that will get rid of cellulite. Most of these treatments address the fatty tissue as well as the connective bands. A surgeon might suggest cutting the connective tissue before removing some of the fat. By taking care of both of these factors at once, patients generally enjoy good results. But as you can imagine, surgery has its downsides.
For one, surgery is invasive. After administering the anesthesia, one or more incisions will need to be made near the cellulite so that a small rod known as a cannula can be used to liquefy the fat and break apart the fibrous tissue.
Surgery also requires a recovery period. Generally speaking, most patients fully recover from their cellulite procedures within just a few days as long as they properly care for the incisions. But during the recovery, the patient must avoid all strenuous physical activities including exercising. During the next appointment with the surgeon, the patient will be given additional instructions on when they can begin exercising. The recovery period will come with restrictions and discomfort, among other downsides. That’s why we are proud to offer non-surgical cellulite treatments at our office.
Addressing Your Cellulite with Non-Surgical Treatments
At Artful Aesthetics, we take advantage of the power of Thermage CPT for our cellulite treatments. This amazing treatment uses radiofrequency energy to tighten skin on various areas of the body.
Every patient has slightly different needs, and that is why all cellulite treatments must be personalized. Keep in mind that in addition to cellulite treatments, patients must make lifestyle changes to prevent cellulite from developing in the future. That includes staying within a healthy weight range and exercising as often as possible. Keeping your skin moisturized and healthy will also reduce your risk of cellulite. Patients will also be provided with more information regarding how they can prevent their cellulite from coming back.
