The proposed indication for use for the Radiesse device, as stated in the PMA is as follows:
The Radiesse device is for hand augmentation to correct volume deficit in the hands.
FDA has previously approved the Radiesse device for the following two indications for use: The Radiesse device is indicated for subdermal implantation for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. It is also indicated for subdermal implantation for restoration and/or correction of the signs of facial fat loss (lipoatrophy) in people with human immunodeficiency virus. The Radiesse device remains unchanged from the current FDA approved version.
