Hi, I am 38 years old. I want to ask, in this age is it suitable for me to use Radiesse for laugh line or not?
Is Radiesse Suitable for a 38 Year Old?

Age is not a factor
Radiesse is actually FDA approved for correction of moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles including nasolabial folds (laugh lines). Age is not a factor but the amount of correction you need is. If you have fine lines, Radiesse is not a good option. If you have deeper creases, Radiesse may be an option for you, but in this area I prefer a hyaluronic acid filler such as Restylane/Perlane or Juvederm Ultra or Ultra Plus.
I do use a lot of Radiesse in my practice (along with the other fillers) but I usually reserve Radisse for augmentation of the cheeks and jaw line.

Try Restylane or Juvederm
Radiesse is for moderate to deep folds and you may not need this level of correction. Restylane or Juvederm is more likely a better treatment for your young age.
Radiesse can definitely be used for 38 year old
I am not sure whether you refer to the laugh lines as canthal creases or more likely the naso-labial furrows. If you refer to the latter then Radiesse is one option while Perlane is certainly another.
