Radiesse is a long-lasting, calcium-based filler that is used to plump up and fill in the skin.

Can the calcium hydroxlapatite in Radiesse cause calcium oxylate kidney stones?

I am not aware of any study that indicates there is any association of the development of kidney stones with the injection of Radiesse(R). With the microscopic amounts of Calcium hydroxylapatite injected and the fact that this is metabolized over approximately 1 year, it is unlikely that there would be any effect.

No, not to my knowledge.
