RADIESSE BRAZILLIAN BUTT LIFT
For many, the ideal shape and size of the buttocks are round, full, and smooth, but many of us find that due to age or genetics, the buttocks can look flat and be dimpled on the surface due to cellulite or stretch marks. Previously, many patients believed that the only option for butt augmentation was a plastic surgery procedure known as the Brazilian Butt Lift, which involved a fat transfer. Luckily, there is a non-surgical procedure that can be quickly, safely, and easily performed with comparable results at a board-certified dermatologist’s office: the injectable dermal filler Radiesse.
WHAT IS RADIESSE ?
Made by the company Merz Aesthetics, Radiesse is a dermal filler that has been FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe lower-face wrinkles and volume loss on the hands. Formulated with the active ingredient calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), Radiesse works to increase volume in the treatment area, fill in wrinkles, and boost collagen production in a process known as collagenases. Radiesse can be effectively used as an off-label treatment for butt augmentation and body contouring as a non-surgical Brazilian butt lift. When injected into the buttocks and hip dips, Radiesse adds volume to the treatment area for a subtle lift, contours the area to achieve the ideal shape, and decreases the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks. Radiesse butt enhancement is an excellent alternative to the surgical Brazilian Butt Lift, helping patients to achieve their desired results without the need for any downtime or risk of significant side effects.
HOW DOES RADIESSE WORK?
Radiesse works to boost collagen production and add volume via the combination of the active ingredient calcium hydroxylapatite and the patented microsphere technology. When injected into the treatment area, these microspheres present in the gel work as a sort of scaffolding, boosting the volume at the injection site immediately and providing a framework around which new collagen can grow. The active ingredient, calcium hydroxyapatite, acts as a bio-stimulator, which triggers the body’s natural collagen production. Collagen is a structural protein that makes the skin smooth, firm, and flexible. Even as the body absorbs the filler, collagen production continues over time, and the treatment results continue to improve for months after the initial procedure. When injected into the buttocks, Radiesse provides a natural-looking enhancement to the butt, and the increased collagen production helps to provide smoother-looking skin, reducing the appearance of dimples and cellulite.
RADIESSE VS SCULPTRA
Radiesse is another collagen-boosting filler that’s great for fighting signs of aging and – that’s right – plumping up your booty. It’s made with calcium hydroxyapatite, which is a substance that is naturally occurring in the body. The treatment is non-inflammatory and Radiesse has a very low risk of allergic reaction.
One of the biggest benefits of Hyperdiluted Radiesse is that results are seen immediately with BBL and anti-aging treatments alike. Those results are known to last up to two years before more treatments are needed.
Sculptra is a filler made with poly-L-lactic acid and it can also be used to fight signs of aging on the face and other areas. The magic happens over time with Sculptra as the body’s collagen production is increased.
While Sculptra BBL results typically aren’t visible until three months or so after treatment, results have been known to last more than three years and as long as five years before more injections are needed!

what is the cost?
SAVE MONEY ON YOUR TREATMENTS WITH MERZ!
When patients ask about the cost of Radiesse for butt augmentation, the answer is that the cost depends on several factors, including the number of syringes necessary to achieve the desired results, your geographic location, and the type of institution at which you receive treatment. The average number of syringes necessary for Radiesse BBL is 5-10, and Radiesse is priced by syringe, meaning the more syringes necessary, the more expensive the treatment will be. The total cost will increase if you pair Radiesse with other treatments, such as Thermage for skin tightening or Botox for dynamic wrinkles. Where you seek treatment also impacts the price of treatment.
