SAN MATEO, Calif. and MONTREAL, Nov. 10 -- BioForm Medical, Inc. ("BioForm"), the makers of Radiesse(TM), announced today that it has received approval from Health Canada to market Radiesse(TM) in Canada for facial aesthetics. Canderm Pharma Inc. ("Canderm"), a leading Canadian dermatology and facial aesthetics company, will be the exclusive distributor for Radiesse in Canada and will launch Radiesse to its customers in the coming weeks.

"We are very excited to offer Canadian physicians and their patients the first long lasting non- permanent filler for non-surgical facial contouring," stated Barry Vogel, President of Canderm.

"This is another important milestone for Radiesse as we continue to grow our share in the world-wide filler market," stated Steven L. Basta, President and CEO of BioForm. "We are fortunate to have Canderm as our partner. As a leader in the Canadian facial aesthetics market, Canderm is positioned to successfully communicate the positive attributes of Radiesse and to provide patients and physicians with a new alternative for long-lasting aesthetic augmentation."

About Radiesse
Manufactured and distributed worldwide by BioForm Medical, Inc., Radiesse is an injectable filler used in various cosmetic, reconstructive and therapeutic applications to augment and contour folds, depressions and defects of the facial area. Radiesse is marketed in Canada and other countries outside of the U.S. for facial soft tissue augmentation and vocal fold augmentation ("VFA") and is approved in the U.S. for VFA and maxillofacial augmentation. Composed of smooth calcium hydroxylapatite ("CaHA") particles suspended in a gel carrier, Radiesse has been demonstrated to be safe and biocompatible in numerous soft tissue applications. It has been used in more than 150,000 procedures worldwide with an excellent safety record. Among the product's many advantages, Radiesse treatment allows steady growth of collagen matrix around the particles, produces immediate results, and is intended to last one to three years.

In the U.S., BioForm recently filed a Pre-Market Approval ("PMA") application for soft-tissue augmentation for the treatment of facial lipoatrophy approval following clinical study results that demonstrated 100% of patients enrolled reported a significant improvement in their appearance at 12 months post treatment. BioForm also recently announced positive results from a multi-center, pivotal study using Radiesse for the treatment of nasolabial folds and the Company plans to file an additional PMA for this aesthetic application shortly.
