Does Calcium Hydroxylapatite Totally Dissipate?

Radiesse does dissolve
Radiesse is calcium hydroxyappatite and is not the same as dental enamel. When injected into the soft tissues of the face it dissolves over a year or more. It does not feel hard like dental enamel to the touch when injected as a filler.

Calcium hydroxylapatite totally dissipates
Radiesse is composed of calcium hydroxylapatite suspended in a gel. The product does completely dissipate. The gel is absorbed over time, while the CaHa crystals act as a scaffold for fibroblasts to deposit new collagen.
Eventually CaHa is broken down into calcium and phosphate ions which are absorbed by the body.
