Do Radiesse Nodules Go Away on Their Own?

I had Radiesse injected 3.5 weeks ago in the cheek area and now I have a hard lump at the orbital bone. It is slightly raised, but it can be felt under the skin. If I push on it, I can move it around. Will Radiesse lumps disappear on their own? Would massge make them go away quicker?

Radiesse does not easily go away


 Unlike the HA products (Juvederm, Restylane), Radiesse does not easily go away.  Radiesse is a great product for deeper injection and in thicker tissues.  However, in thin tissues around the orbital region, a Radiesse nodule will likely up to a year to go away.  Good luck
