In recent years, the Brazilian Butt Lift has become one of the most popular aesthetic enhancement procedures on the market. However, many clients simply aren't ready for invasive surgical measures. You can now achieve a fuller, smoother, and lifted buttocks with our non-surgical options, Sculptra® Butt Lift and Radiesse® Butt Lift.
So how is a non-surgical butt lift possible? There are recent innovations in FDA-approved injectables that work to plump your buttocks. FDA-approved brands offered at Evolve Med Spa include Sculptra BBL and Radiesse BBL – both options offer a non-surgical way to enhance the curve and shape of your buttocks without the downtime or risk of complications like a Brazilian Butt Lift surgery.
Our team of Medical Providers can assist you in selecting the best solution to meet your specific booty needs. The chart below compares the key differences between Sculptra and Radiesse, as well as a surgical BBL procedure.

Some clients may experience minor swelling and some bruising; more major side effects are extremely rare. The procedure doesn't carry a high risk of scarring.
For Sculptra, noticeable results can be seen 3-6 months after the Sculptra treatment and usually lasts between 2 to 3 years. Sculptra can be injected over a period of time to produce the desired result, and you can also re-inject Sculptra to prolong the effects of your treatment.
For Radiesse, results appear almost immediately given the product is a type of dermal filler. More volume appears over 2-3 months due to collagen stimulation.
It is important to understand that Sculptra is a collagen stimulator, not a dermal filler. This means that the Sculptra itself is not providing the filling. Sculptra causes a reaction in the skin which forms new collagen. Sculptra is also often used as injectable treatments in the face to treat fine lines, nasolabial folds, and facial volume. Depending on the desired level of augmentation, most clients require multiple treatment sessions; each performed approximately six weeks apart.
