There is no single answer to how many vials of Sculptra you’ll need to achieve your non-surgical butt lift. This depends on several factors, including your age as well as the gap between the current curvature of your buttocks and the desired curvature you’re after. However, one general rule used by many in the dermatological and cosmetic fields is that you’ll need one vial for every decade you’ve lived. For example:
- A person in their 30s will likely need 3 vials.
- A person in their 40s will likely need 4 vials.
- A person in their 60s could need as many as 6 vials.
This rule applies to the number of vials (or injections) you’ll need during each of your Sculptra sessions. Typically, you might expect to undergo two to three sessions total to get your initial butt lift. Then, the medical staff at Glow Aesthetic Center recommends that you get a touch-up treatment roughly every 18 to 24 months. Even without touch-ups, results from Sculptra have been known to last as much as (and, in rare cases, more than) two years from the date of your initial treatment.

How Sculptra Works
Sculptra uses Poly-L-lactic acid as its active ingredient. This compound is a safe substance that has been in use in the medical field for decades due to its ability to be safely dissolved within the body. If you’ve ever received dissolvable sutures as part of a surgery, for instance, then you’ve already had Poly-L-lactic acid in your body. When used in an injectable filler like Sculptra, the compound forms tiny spheroids around which collagen forms as the body’s natural healing system kicks in. Within a few days, the Poly-L-lactic acid itself biodegrades, leaving orbs of collagen that help to naturally boost your buttocks’ structure.
Collagen: Your Body’s Glue
If you are at all interested in the skincare scene, you’ve likely heard all about collagen. Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body. The vast majority of it can be found in your skin. It is responsible for building and upholding your skin’s structure, along with an additional compound called elastin. You can think of collagen as the “glue” that holds many of your body’s structures together.
The long and short of it is that Sculptra stimulates your body’s natural production of collagen and then dissolves, leaving the collagen that provides that firm, natural volume. The result: you get the buttocks you’ve always wanted without having to undergo serious surgery.
Recovering from Sculptra
Your Sculptra treatment doesn’t require any downtime! You’ll be able to walk out of the clinic and drive back home the same day. Due to the nature of the procedure (an injection into your sensitive buttocks area), you might experience:
- Slight discomfort or pain
- Small bumps (called “papules”) that you can feel under your skin
These are all temporary side effects that should dissipate quickly. You should not experience any significant changes to your current lifestyle.
Your Age and Sculptra
As noted above, the general rule is that you’ll need a vial of Sculptra per decade of your age. This is not always the case, and subtler body goals may require fewer vials and sessions. Additionally, starting Sculptra treatments at a younger age can mean that you need fewer vials in your later touch-ups, which we recommend getting at least once every two years to retain your youthful, plump butt.
Sculptra treatments can be useful for anyone, even adults in older generations. However, clients who fall into the age range 25-45 usually see the best results. In part, this is because of your body’s natural healing abilities during that age range, as well as its levels of collagen production. Remember, Sculptra acts as a collagen production initiator. Therefore, if your body is slow at making collagen or only makes it in smaller amounts, you might experience less impressive results.
Schedule a Consultation on the Sculptra Non-Surgical Butt Lift
It’s possible to get back the buttocks of your youth without having to resort to invasive and painful surgery. Sculptra injectable treatments are dermal fillers that have also been used in facial areas, such as the nasolabial folds. Safe, effective, and inexpensive compared to more dramatic surgical solutions, Sculptra can stimulate collagen production in your body to restore lost soft tissue volume in your butt and provide you with the rounder bottom you desire.
