I'm very intrigued about the Radiesse Voice injection. The company says radiesse helps with symptoms of vocal fold insufficiency: A low, raspy, or rough voice. Inability to speak above a whisper. Persistent hoarseness. Swallowing or breathing difficulty, especially if accompanied by ear pain. Coughing or choking when swallowing. Frequent throat clearing or the sensation that you have a lump in your throat.
Have you ever tried Radiesse Voice? Do you plan to provide it to patients?
Radiesse for paralysed vocal cord
If a person has a breathy voice, he or she needs to have this evaluated - to find the cause.
Only then would one consider a filler to push the non moving cord closer to the other one, so the working cord doesnt get tired as quickly and produce the weak breathy voice.
Radiesse Vocal Cords
Radiesse can be injected into the vocal cords in select cases of patients with vocal cord paresis or paralysis. In some cases, it can be done as an in office procedure. It is critical that this injection be done with someone who specializes in voice and experience using Radiesse.

Radiesse for vocal cord weakness
Radiesse is an excellent spot volume enhancer and works well in many areas by injection where volume is lacking. This includes wide and varied applications such as vocal cord paralysis for hoarse voice, cosmetic enhancement of nasolabial folds, augmentation of bony anatomy of the face (nasal bridge, chin, or cheeks in my practice), nasolabial folds, and is even used for urinary incontinence and G-spot enhancement.
Your other symptoms do raise concerns about issues other than just vocal cord paralysis, and warrant referral for a complete evaluation by an otolaryngologist and speech therapist.

The product would be used when deemed medicaly necessary by the appropriate physician (likely an ENT).
Use of Radiesse for the voice
This is not elected for elective alteration in the voice but rather for patients who suffer from vocal cord paralysis.
