What is Radiesse for Men?
Today there are many injectable wrinkle treatments on the market for you to consider to get a more youthful, refreshed appearance. The RADIESSE injectable wrinkle filler offered by skilled dermatologist Dr. Melissa Chiang and gifted plastic surgeon Dr. Younghoon Cho is wonderful for mild or moderate lines and wrinkles throughout the face and for correcting age-related volume loss in the hands. People who don't have a lot of time for frequent cosmetic appointments tend to love the long-lasting results (over a year in many cases) of RADIESSE. Using microspheres of calcium hydroxyapatite in a flexible gel, this injectable fills and softens the look of your skin without having to undergo invasive surgery. RADIESSE has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to safely contour facial features and replenish volume in the hands. It can be used in tandem with other injectable treatments (wrinkle relaxers and fillers) for a custom procedure that restores your skin. Look several years younger and boost your confidence with RADIESSE injectable wrinkle fillers at Chiseled in The Woodlands, TX.
What are the benefits of RADIESSE?
Plastic surgery may not be for everyone, and some people are not ready for such a big commitment. RADIESSE is an excellent option for men who want to improve their appearance without going under the knife. Some well-known benefits of RADIESSE include:
- Long-lasting results: RADIESSE can last 1 – 2 years in some cases, so patients do not have to schedule frequent appointments.
- Natural-looking outcomes: RADIESSE encourages natural collagen production, which provides a more natural look than other synthetic fillers.
- Safe and FDA-approved: RADIESSE has been extensively tested and is approved by the FDA for use on the face and hands.
Who is a candidate for radiesse?
People who are in overall good health and want to correct their mild to moderate lines and wrinkles may be ideal candidates for RADIESSE injectable treatments, which help to improve smile lines, marionette lines, pre-jowl folds, chin wrinkles, and lines in the sides of the lips. RADIESSE is also approved to treat age-related volume loss in the hands to help them look softer and younger. You should not receive this treatment if you are allergic to lidocaine or any ingredients in the product. Be sure to talk to Dr. Chiang or Dr. Cho if you have any allergies (whether mild or severe) or any medical disorders or conditions. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, may be pregnant, or are trying to conceive within the next several years, you should not get RADIESSE treatments.
"Radiesse/Lyft and Subcision - Spring, TX - I went in for correction of deep folds on my cheeks. The folds became extreme after I tried perlane to add volume, not only did it not work but it made awful creases on my cheeks. The nurse Heather gave me the most amazing full cheeks with Radiesse, then I went back a week later for the subcision which Dr Cho did. It was painful because he actually went in and broke up the scar tissue/bands that caused the folds with a needle. Think of scraping with a knife under your skin and that's pretty much what it felt like. I am so grateful for both Heather and Dr Cho they were amazing. They both have me hope again, I've seen many doctors to advise me on how to correct this issue and none were as kind, thoughtful or knowledgable as Heather, Dr Cho and as a bonus his wife who is a Dermatologist at the facility. Dr Chiang (the dermatologist & Dr Cho's wife) came in for my first visit and again helped at the second when I had the subcision along with a small amount of Restalyn Lyft to fill in the void left by the breaking of the scar tissue. Words cannot describe how how much better I feel and look even with all the bruising and scaring I have right now."- P. / RealSelf / Mar 09, 2017
What to expect during radiesse treatment
RADIESSE wrinkle injections take place in one of our minor treatment rooms at Chiseled and usually take about 10 – 30 minutes once we've completed the initial consultation. First, we'll seat you in a comfortable treatment chair and then clean and mark the injection sites. Many patients feel only mild discomfort during the treatment at the initial prick, but if requested, we can use a numbing cream on the injection sites. The dosage of RADIESSE, determined at your personalized consultation, will be placed in a fine needle. The marked sites will help our injector carefully administer RADIESSE into your face or hands. Once the procedure is complete, a compress on the treated areas can help to minimize swelling and bruising.
How long is recovery after radiesse?
Following your treatment, you may have some redness, swelling, and bruising. This is common and should last for about a week. These side effects can usually be concealed with cosmetics. If the side effects last longer or seem excessive, please contact Chiseled. Most patients see visible results minutes after their treatment with better results appearing a month or so later. Your face can look younger, softer, and more radiant. RADIESSE typically lasts longer than other fillers: up to 1 – 2 years. You can talk to Dr. Chiang or Dr. Cho at your appointment about how soon to schedule your next treatment to touch up your results.

Are RADIESSE injections painful?
Generally, patients do not need any form of numbing prior to their injection treatment. However, a local anesthetic is available to relieve any concerns you may have. Most patients have brief and minor discomfort during the actual injections.
How does RADIESSE compare with other fillers?
Dermal fillers all have different formulas to meet a wide variety of concerns. Common filler materials include hyaluronic acid (HA) and poly-L-lactic acid. RADIESSE is made of calcium-based microspheres, which encourage new collagen production for healthy-looking skin. During your consultation at Chiseled, we will explain your options based on your current skin volume and laxity.
What other procedures can I combine with RADIESSE?
RADIESSE injections may be performed along with other aesthetic treatments to achieve the best outcomes possible. Our male patients can combine dermal fillers like RADIESSE with BOTOX® or other wrinkle relaxers to create a more refreshed appearance. Speak with Dr. Cho about our other potential options.
How much does RADIESSE cost?
The cost of RADIESSE at Chiseled depends on several factors, including how many units are administered during treatment. Our friendly and knowledgeable administrative team can give you a more specific estimate at the end of your appointment. We also provide easy financing options to make your RADIESSE injections more affordable.
What are the side effects of RADIESSE?
Radiesse treatments have a low risk of severe side effects when performed by an experienced injector, like the ones at Chiseled. In your consultation, tell your injector about any medications you are taking and any allergies to avoid a reaction. Right after your treatment, you might experience mild bruising, redness, numbness, or itching. This is temporary and will fade in 1 – 2 days.
