Collagen is a key structural component of smooth, healthy-looking skin. But did you know that as you age, your body’s collagen production decreases? That with time, circumstances, and personal choice, your butt may sag? In fact, you lose about 1% of collagen per year after the age of 18! That is when you may start to notice the downhill trend!

So, how can you restore or enhance your natural curves? “Luckily,” boasts Galderma Laboratories, “Sculptra Aesthetic can help, even if decades of collagen loss have already occurred.”

Your Curves, Your Choice

An “unusually small waist is only part of what makes a [woman] so curvy. The other part is having relatively normal- size hips and legs that are well endowed with fat,” says Psychology Today. In fact, even a thin woman carries an astonishing amount of fat in her legs and hips, well-rounded figure.

Scientifically speaking, men subconsciously admire the fat located here. In 54 non-Western tribal groups, men almost always preferred women with large or fat hips and legs.

Why Does The Butt Sag?

Why does the butt eventually sag? In short, aging, childbirth, genetics, and lifestyle habits are the most popular culprits. As mentioned in the beginning, Collagen production decreases with age. Whereby skin begins to sag, muscles weaken, and fat pockets shift. However, Sculptra Aesthetics may be to be able to lift the sagging area, thereby enhancing curves. Just how?

Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid. The acid has been used in medical products and procedures for decades and is safe. Its uses are quite varied. The United States Food and Drug Administration says regarding poly-L-lactic acid that “the build-up of collagen [which the acid incites the body to produce] over time creates volume at the site of injection.” Then over the course of time, the lactic acid’s “microparticles are metabolized [in] to carbon dioxide and water and expelled through the respiratory system,” explains the National Library of Medicine. What does that all mean?

Sculptra Isn’t Permanent

Simply put, a non-surgical procedure involving the use of a dermal filler — in this case, a non-surgical butt lift, using Sculptra — will fade over time. Especially notable is that a butt lift with dermal fillers typically involves a series of treatment sessions. The process is almost pain-free and only takes only an hour max. Initial results may vary from patient-to-patient. But, clients often report seeing immediate visible results. And, they can last up to two years!m

Whatever the cause of a sagging butt, a lift can enhance natural curves,

Remember, though, that eventual decrease in your body’s natural collagen levels is normal, albeit from external circumstances or personal choices.

A butt lift surgery can often require intense recovery, but, a non-surgical butt lift entails minimal downtime. While some side effects are typical, such as bruising, soreness, swelling, or infection at the injection site, these are mild and temporary.
