Generally, yes.  Radiesse is not a permanent injectable substance; instead, its calcium hydroxylapatite crystals stimulate collagen growth.  The material is absorbed slowly (over 12-18 months typically) but it should happen on its own.  I would generally advise patience to allow it to settle down on its own.

I hope that this helps and good luck,

Radiesse is calcium hydroxyapatite and can be injected directly onto bone. Although it was injected superficial, it will still metabolize

Radiesse to chin

It can and will metabolize, but usually not for 12-18 months. I don't usually recommend superficial injection of Radiesse; it's more for areas of high volume loss and does well injected on to bone. Hope this helps.
