Lunge. Squat. Dead lift. Repeat. Sure, workout moves work, but sometimes a little more, well,curve appeal is in order. Good news, modern medicine has made most #glutgoals easy in four steps.
Annie Chiu, MD, attending dermatologist at Cedars Sinai Medical Center, says the butt lift is a popular ask in her office, and people are loving the outcome. The magic happens with an FDA approved filler called Sculptra, traditionally injected into facial wrinkles. “It has become a great way to shape an area that unfortunately can sag with age,” she says. All possible sans scalpel. One or two sessions can give you a dreamy backside. A big caveat? Do your diligence before getting this done. Chiu warns that in the hands of unqualified providers, cheap materials such as mineral oil, silicon, or paraffin wax (yikes!) are often used, leading to a booty lift gone really, really bad.
Damn those dimples–90 percent of women have cellulite, regardless of their fitness level. Cellulite is visible when fat pockets protrude through fibrous bands in the skin. Thank goodness for Cellfina, the only FDA approved device that can actually get rid of the problem, with long lasting effects. The device is small, only the size of a standard smart phone, but results are huge. Cellfina was designed to cut those bands, liberating tension and fat, so dimples smooth. A one time treatment that takes less than an hour, can leave you with results visible in a week.
Freeze that fat baby. With CoolSculpt, the world’s leading fat reduction procedure, that is exactly what happens through a process called cryolypolysis. Inches resistant to exercise and diet can be iced away. First stop: those annoying bulges that take up residence on your back upper thighs, right under the butt. With one or two CoolSculpt sessions these can be history.
A small electrical current may be the key to a rock hard rear. Microcurrent therapy, such as Tracie Martyn’s celebrity beloved Resculpting Body Treatment, work as a collagen stimulating booty reboot. Age and sun exposure slow down the natural tissue flow, and circulation. These little devices are a good way to ignite the spark.
