Abstract

Ideal charateristics of soft tissue fillers include longevity, biocompatibility, low adverse event profile and a reasonable cost. Radiesse(R) have many advantage as the desirable properties of facial filler. Authors introduce Radiesse(R) was recently introduced as a facial filler agent. Radiesse(R) was injected to 81 male and female patients in the study, using 27G fine needle. The age range of the patients was 22 to 48 years. The injected areas were nasal root, tip, nasolabial folds and jaw. We measured patient satisfaction scale during the period of follow up 2 to 6 months. The scale of satisfaction was good to excellent in 69 cases of 81 cases and fair in 9 cases of 81 cases. Patients satisfaction was poor in only 3 cases. Patients were observed no systemic effects but minimal adverse events which are leakage, nodule and subclinical inflammation. Radiesse(R) was highly effective, long lasting material for facial soft tissue augmentation. If a precise injection technique were applied, Radiesse(R) can be a very good option for real volumetric facial soft tissue augmentation.
