RADIESSE® Voice is provided in a sterile ready-to-use syringe. No skin allergy testing is required. Because the amount of filling or augmentation can be easily controlled through direct application, RADIESSE Voice is easy to place and convenient to use. The injection volume and location should conform to the following recommendations:
The vocal fold injections should be at the level of the vocal process.
The depth of the vocal fold injection should be approximately 5-7 mm.
The vocal fold injection volume should be done strictly on immediate clinical observation, and approximately 10-15% over correction is recommended.
Important RADIESSE® VOICE and RADIESSE® Voice Gel Treatment Considerations
RADIESSE® Voice and RADIESSE® Voice Gel are FDA-cleared for vocal fold augmentation and vocal fold insufficiency associated with serious aspiration disorders. After injection, patients may experience transient throat soreness, bruising, swelling, or other local side effects. More rare side effects may include over-injection or under-injection that may require repeated intervention, and as with any injection there may be a risk of infection.
