Volumize your face and body from within with Sculptra® Aesthetic at our El Dorado Hills, Elk Grove, Folsom, Roseville, and Sacramento locations. By promoting your body’s own natural collagen production, this innovative product lifts, volumizes, and revitalizes any area it’s injected into. Results develop gradually, revealing fuller, plumper, more youthful skin that looks beautifully true to you. As one of the top medical spas in the Sacramento area, Destination Aesthetics™ offers a variety of fillers that we can use to help you look naturally refreshed.
What Is Sculptra®?
Sculptra® is not exactly a dermal filler; it’s an FDA-approved biostimulatory volumizer, which means it encourages your body to produce its own collagen. The result? Smoother, thicker skin and natural-looking volume that lasts.
How Is Sculptra® Different From Other Dermal Fillers?
Most of the other dermal fillers we use are made of hyaluronic acid (HA). This gel temporarily adds volume just below the skin in precise areas, making it a favorite for our DA Lips and DA Chin & Jawline treatments. Because the volume is created by the filler itself, you’ll see the difference right when we perform your injections.
Sculptra is made of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a synthetic form of the natural lactic acid your body produces when you work out. Instead of adding immediate volume, on the other hand, Sculptra® builds it more gradually. The PLLA acts as a scaffolding for your body’s collagen, providing a structure for natural-looking fullness that develops over several weeks. While these results take a bit longer to see, they last longer, too.

One of the most popular uses for Sculptra® injections is a nonsurgical butt lift. In a DA Derriere treatment, we create a fuller, rounder backside without the invasiveness or recovery time of surgery. On top of the volume increase itself, you’ll also benefit from thicker, smoother skin and reduced dimpling.
How Does a Nonsurgical Butt Lift Differ From BBL or Butt Implant Surgery?
A Sculptra® butt lift is performed with injections so it is nonsurgical. BBL (Brazilian butt lift) and butt implants involve surgery, anesthesia, and weeks of downtime. Here is a summary of each procedure:
Sculptra butt lift: Multiple vials of Sculptra are injected into the skin of the buttocks. You will need to take it easy for a couple of days, but no downtime is required. Results take about 8 to 12 weeks to develop and last about 2 years.
BBL (Brazilian butt lift): Using liposuction, fat is harvested from where it’s not wanted such as the hips, waist, and thighs. The fat is then purified and injected into the buttocks. Incisions are tiny, so scarring is minimal. Results are immediate, not predictable (not all of the transferred fat will survive), and last indefinitely. A BBL requires weeks of downtime. Areas from which fat is collected will be sore and swollen. Patients cannot sit on their buttocks for several weeks after the procedure.
Butt implants: Silicone implants are placed under the large gluteal muscle through incisions between the buttocks. Results are immediate and permanent (although reversible because the implants can be removed). Scarring is usually concealed. Recovery takes about 6 weeks and is usually painful for the first week or 2. Sitting on the buttocks is prohibited for at least 2 weeks.
What Are Sculptra® Treatments Like?
Sculptra® treatments work a lot like other dermal filler treatments. There are no anesthesia or incisions, just injections performed by one of our specially trained and experienced #DAGs.
We’ll start with an in-depth consultation to make sure Sculptra® is the best option to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. From there, we’ll perform a quick series of injections, making sure you’re comfortable from start to finish.
How Long Is Sculptra® Recovery?
You’re free to return to your normal routine right away. As is the case with other injectable treatments, you may have some bruising, swelling, or redness around your injection sites, but this typically goes away within a few days.
DA sets the bar high and is the new gold standard for what excellent looks like in a day spa and cosmetic procedure practice. I will let everyone I know about the professional, qualified, skilled, safe, and outstanding experience I had - DA is the BEST!

Sculptra® results develop gradually over a few months. You will see an immediate difference after your appointment, but that’s really only caused by the saline we inject. Your body will absorb this in 2 to 3 days. Most people see their best results after a series of 2 to 3 sessions spaced 6 weeks apart, with full results visible in about 6 months.
How Long Does Sculptra® Last?
You can expect to enjoy your Sculptra® results for as long as 2 years.
