What are hip dips?


Hip dips are the naturally occurring indentations that are seen just below the sides of your hips. These inward depressions are seen midway between the femur and the hip bones. The visibility of these hip dips is highly variable and varies from person to person. They are scientifically known as trochanteric depressions. Many women find them unappealing as most prefer an hour-glass appearance and in some cases they can be uneven with hip dip on one side, more indented than the other.

What are hip dips causes?


There is no specific cause of hip dips. The specific arrangement of muscles and fat deposition makes the bony prominences look more outlined than usual. People that have naturally tall hip bones are more likely to have exaggerated hip dips and they are more common in Caucasian females than in Latino or Afro-caribbean populations. Some people can develop hip dips due to underdeveloped muscles or high body fat or a combination of both. Hip dips can be reduced to some degree by adopting exercises that target the hip and buttocks but it is unlikely that exercise alone will provide complete correction.

For women who wish to correct their hip dips they can achieve it by using Sculptra and Lanluma treatments. Both of these are injectable treatments performed by a doctor which fill the depressions through boosting collagen production and provide a fuller look. Sculptra and Lanluma have a better success rate than implants which are commonly used for contouring.

WHY CHOOSE Lanluma For Hip Dips

Lanluma injections help to add volume to the dip in the hip area and also improve the appearance of skin by plumping indentations and smoothing cellulite. You are likely to need 2-3 sessions of Sculptra or Lanluma hip dip injections with each session 1 month apart, results will take 3-6 months to be fully visible and results will last 2 years.
