Radiesse is composed of particles of calcium which should not be affected by MRI electromagnetic waves.  Call and ask you MRI technician prior to your scan.

MRI after Radiesse to nasolabial folds

+1

An MRI should not affect a Radiesse treatment that was done to the nasolabial folds.  You should go ahead with your MRI if needed.

I am not aware of any contraindications of MRI following Radiesse treatment of the nasolabial folds. The main risks of MRI involve scanning people who have metal implants or medical devices that have the potential to move under the force of the MRI magnet.
