While there are many fillers that can be used for improvement of deep nasolabial folds, including fat, Restylane and Radiesse. I would suggest if it is your first time that you start with Restylane. Restylane is much more forgiving and although it does not last as long as Radiesse it is less likely to give any lumpiness and if an adverse reaction were to occur it can be reversed with a dissolving enzyme injection into the area. Radiesse on the other hand is much thicker so more prone to leaving some firm lumps and can not be reversed. If you have very deep folds then a combination of Radiesse as a deep injection and Restylane layered on top more superficially can work very well. Hope this helps.
Is Radiesse the best solution for nasolabial folds?

Midface Augmentation with Dermal Fillers
Thank you for your question. Radiesse is a great, FDA approved product to treat the nasolabial folds. However, Radiesse is quite thick and is not right for every patient. I like to use Radiesse to restore lost volume in the midface for men and women with heavier tissues. Because Radiesse is composed of calcium hydroxyapatite, it cannot be dissolved in the same way that hyaluronic acid fillers can (such as Restylane and Juvederm). In my experience, the nasolabial folds develop due to loss of volume in the midface. I find that restoring this midface deficiency can greatly soften the nasolabial folds naturally. Injecting directly into the NLFs themselves can result in an unnatural and “puffy” appearance. I recommend researching experienced injectors and scheduling a consultation for a proper, in-person evaluation. Good luck!
Filler for Nasolabial Folds
Radiesse is a long lasting filler in the nasolabial folds or smile lines. It can last a year or more, but it is not reversible. If this is your first time having filler and your folds are not deep, you may consider restylane or juvederm. They last for 9 months and can be reversed with Hylenex injections.

Radiesse, Restylane and Juvederm Are All Excellent for Nasolabial Folds
All three of these dermal fillers do an excellent job of filling in the nasolabial folds, making your skin look plump and youthful again. Radiesse tends to last longer, with many patients going 12 to 18 months between sessions. Restylane and Juvederm, which are hyaluronic acid based, usually last about four to six months. If you change your mind and decide you don't like these the way the Restylane or Juvederm looks, they can be dissolved with hyaluronidase. Radiesse is composed of calcium hydroxylapitite and cannot be dissolved. See a board-certified dermatologist to learn about your options.
