The Non-Surgical Buttlift: How Biostimulators With Sculptra And Radiesse Work

As the demand for aesthetic enhancement continues to rise, so does the popularity of cosmetic procedures. However, only some are comfortable undergoing invasive surgeries to achieve their desired look. For those seeking a more natural and non-invasive option, the non-surgical buttlift has become a popular alternative. 

Recently, biostimulators such as Sculptra and Radiesse have gained attention as effective methods for achieving a fuller, lifted buttock appearance without surgery. But how exactly do these biostimulators work? This article will explore the intricacies of the non-surgical buttlift, focusing on using Sculptra and Radiesse as biostimulators, their mode of action, benefits, drawbacks, and safety considerations. 

Biostimulators: What Are They?

To understand how Sculptra and Radiesse work in non-surgical buttlifts, we must first understand what biostimulators are. Biostimulators are injectable treatments that stimulate the body’s natural collagen production, helping to restore volume to and lift the treated area. They differ from traditional fillers, adding volume to the site by filling in wrinkles or hollows.

Biostimulators typically contain a synthetic compound, such as poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) or calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), gradually broken down by the body over time. As the substance breaks down, it stimulates the body’s collagen production, which in turn helps to create a fuller, more youthful appearance.

Different types of biostimulators are available on the market, each with unique properties and benefits. Some biostimulators, such as Sculptra, are made of PLLA and are primarily used for facial rejuvenation. In contrast, others, such as Radiesse, contain CaHA and can be used for facial and body rejuvenation.

The mode of action for biostimulators involves a gradual process that occurs over several weeks to months. The compound is injected into the treatment area in a series of sessions spaced several weeks apart to allow the body to produce collagen gradually. The final result is a natural-looking, gradual improvement in volume and lift without surgery.

Sculptra And Radiesse As Biostimulators In The Non-Surgical Buttlift

Sculptra and Radiesse are two of the most popular biostimulators in non-surgical buttlifts. Sculptra, as previously mentioned, is made of PLLA and has been used for facial rejuvenation since the early 2000s. It works by stimulating collagen production in the skin and gradually improving volume and firmness.

When used in a non-surgical buttlift, Sculptra is injected into the subcutaneous tissue of the buttocks. The number of injections required will vary depending on the patient’s needs and desired outcome.

Radiesse contains CaHA, a relatively new biostimulator that has gained popularity for facial and body rejuvenation. Like Sculptra, Radiesse works by stimulating collagen production in the treated area.

In non-surgical buttlifts, Radiesse is injected into the deep tissue layers of the buttocks, providing immediate lift and volume. The treatment typically involves one to two sessions spaced several weeks apart to achieve the desired results.

Sculptra and Radiesse have unique properties and benefits when used in non-surgical buttlifts. Sculptra provides a more gradual, natural-looking improvement over time, while Radiesse delivers more immediate results. However, both biostimulators can be used together to achieve optimal results, with Sculptra providing a long-lasting improvement in collagen production and Radiesse providing rapid volume and lift.

Safety And Risks of Biostimulators In The Non-Surgical Buttlift

As with any cosmetic procedure, there are potential risks and side effects associated with using biostimulators in non-surgical buttlifts. However, when administered by a trained medical professional, the dangers are typically minimal.

The most common side effects of biostimulators in non-surgical buttlifts include swelling, redness, bruising, and discomfort at the injection site. These side effects are usually mild and resolve independently within a few days to a week.

More severe side effects such as infection, tissue damage, or allergic reaction can occur in rare cases. Patients should inform their trained medical provider / injector immediately if they experience any unusual symptoms following the procedure.

It is also important to note that biostimulators in non-surgical buttlifts are unsuitable for everyone. Patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a history of autoimmune disease or bleeding disorders may not be suitable candidates for this procedure.

To ensure the safety and effectiveness of biostimulators in non-surgical buttlifts, it is vital to choose a trained and experienced medical professional who can properly assess your individual needs and administer the treatment safely.

The Non-Surgical Buttlift Procedure

The non-surgical buttlift procedure using biostimulators is a relatively simple process that can be completed in a medspa in as little as an hour.

The first step in the procedure is a consultation with a trained medical professional, who will assess your individual needs and determine if you are a suitable candidate for the treatment. During the consultation, the provider will also discuss the risks and benefits of the treatment and answer any questions you may have.

If you proceed with the treatment, the injector will mark the injection sites on your buttocks. Then, a local anesthetic may be administered to minimize discomfort during the procedure.

Next, the biostimulator (Sculptra, Radiesse, or a combination of the two) will be injected into the buttocks’ subcutaneous or deep tissue layers, depending on the desired outcome. The number of injections required will vary depending on the patient’s needs and desired outcome.

After the injections are complete, the provider will massage the treated area to ensure that the biostimulator is evenly distributed and to minimize the risk of any lumps or bumps forming.

Most patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure, although professionals may recommend avoiding strenuous exercise for a short period.


The non-surgical buttlift using biostimulators such as Sculptra and Radiesse is a safe and effective alternative to traditional surgical buttlift procedures. With minimal risks and side effects, patients can achieve a lifted and toned appearance without anesthesia, incisions, or downtime.
