Sculptra® Aesthetic and Radiesse®, unique cosmetic injectable fillers that stimulate collagen production, can restore facial volume and fullness to provide a more youthful appearance for men.
Results are long-lasting — in fact, men who opt for Radiesse® typically report the effects lasting for as long as 18 months. Sculptra® injections can last even longer — up to two years.
Other than Sculptra® Aesthetic and Radiesse®, Dr. Mobley often recommends dermal fillers such as Juvederm®, Restylane® and Belotero for our male patients. These hyaluronic acid-based cosmetic injectables provide immediate results, and the effects generally last for about six to 12 months.
Dr. Mobley also uses cosmetic fat injections as dermal fillers for men. The treatment is more involved, as it requires a small amount of liposuction from the abdomen, thighs, buttocks or jowls. However, as it contains no foreign material, cosmetic fat injections are safe for patients with allergies or sensitivities to natural or synthetic facial fillers.
In addition, the results can last for years longer than other fillers. In fact, for some men, the volume enhancement effect is permanent.

Kandice rounded out her skills with an RN degree in 2014, and experience in home health.
Kandice has one young man in her life, and spends most of her free time with him going to parks and playing sports. She also loves wine tasting, hot yoga, camping and hiking, and goes as frequently as she can.
When it comes to restoring facial volume and fullness, every patient has unique needs.
For that reason, Dr. Mobley may advise some men to consider Sculptra® Aesthetic or Radiesse® to boost the production of collagen while plumping the skin. For other men, including those who want instant facial rejuvenation, Juvederm®, Restylane® or Belotero could be a better option. And with some patients, both types of facial fillers — or fillers used in conjunction with Botox® or Dysport® — may provide the desired results.
Dr. Mobley often treats the jawline with Sculptra® and other dermal fillers, as many men want a stronger, more prominent jaw. Fitness buffs and men who are on the lean side may choose filler treatment for gaunt cheeks, as a subtle masculine enhancement can make for a more handsome facial appearance.
Dermal fillers can also effectively plump thinning lips, improve the look of recessed scars, decrease deep wrinkles and fill shallow lines. Dr. Mobley and the Beauty Now team can provide facial fullness anywhere our patients would like.
Each patient has different needs and unique facial volume loss considerations, so determining the price for dermal fillers requires a professional consultation. Treatment costs depend upon the particular filler used. Dr. Mobley must perform an assessment to decide whether injecting Sculptra® or one of the other facial fillers is the best approach to achieve the desired results.
Dermal fillers are priced by the syringe. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers like Juvederm®, Restylane® and Belotero® cost between $600 and $850 each, and some patients need multiple syringes to complete their treatment. Repeat treatments are often necessary after about six to 12 months.
The cost for Sculptra® Aesthetic and Radiesse® injections can be a bit higher — most men can expect to pay between $1,400 and $2,800 for one to three treatment sessions. However, results can last much longer than with other dermal fillers — up to two years. Given the longevity, Sculptra® or Radiesse® treatment can be a cost-effective approach to facial rejuvenation.
Cosmetic fat injections are also priced by the syringe. Due to the extra steps involved in the procedure, each treatment can cost upward of several thousand dollars. But with the prospect of permanent results, the cost makes this treatment approach worthwhile for many patients.
