The short answer is that Radiesse in any location will generally last about a year. Removal is quite difficult and would involve making some kind of incision to remove the underlying material.

There is no solvent agent for Radiesse. It usually last for about a year. Sometimes it can be excised or aspirated in the early stages after injection but after that you are stuck with it until it is gone.

Unfortunately there is no specific dissolving agent or non surgical antidote for Radiesse. In some cases it can be partially removed surgically but is very difficult. It is best to wait the 12-18 months for it to dissolve itself. If a local collagen response is noted then surgical excision is an option.

The bad news is there is no easy way to get it out without making a cut over the product and trying to extract it. The good news is that is slowly breaks down over time and eventually you will have less material there every month. You can do massage if you have lumps or bumps, this can help.
Radiesse can be removed! It lasts, under the eyes, a bit longer than in other areas. Unfortunately, removal isn't a simple project. It doesn't come out the same way it goes in, ie, via injection. See the practitioner who injected you and have a frank conversation about your concerns.

Once Radiesse has settled in, it is almost impossible to remove without surgical excision. In the early stages post injection, aspiration can be performed to remove some of the filler but after that it will disappear in about one year.
Radiesse can be reduced but not removed.
Wydase may be used to help dissolve the carrier gel component of Radiesse. This won't dissolve the core Radiesse product but it can decrease the volume of the product by 30%.
I like Radiesse a lot in certain places like the chin, the oral commisures, cheek bone area and nasolabial folds. It's advantages are that it's thicker, stronger, and a more aggressive filler than the HA's. At the same time, it has some added risks to be careful of.
It's important to discuss the risks and benefits of the HA's vs. Radiesse with your provider to decide which filler is best for you.
Removal of Radiesse after injection
I've been told by the sales reps that Radiesse can be aspirated out immediately after injection, but I haven't attempted this. I have removed it in the lower lid of a patient many months after it was injected and it was difficult. For this reason, it is best injected by someone very experienced with the product and in an area where it is unlikely to show through the skin.
