When will radiesse in the chin go away? Does it go away faster in younger patients? Am I making it worse u massaging constantly?

I had radiesse 0.7ml injected into my chin 3 weeks ago. I instantly didn't like it and knew it couldn't be dissolved so 48 hours after injection I started to panic and push it/massage it very hard. This made it swell up very bad and it is only now starting to go down. First of all, would I have caused any lasting damage by doing this? My chin just looks huge. When will I start to see the volume go down? I constantly massage it now as I read this may help it go down but now I'm starting to think it might be better left alone. I also move this area constantly because I know movement helps. Is the chin an area that moves a lot? Will this make it go away faster? Or should I just forget all this and let it go away on its own? Will it definately go away? I'm scared it will not. Also one last question. I can't find anywhere online that says if radiesse disappears faster in younger patients because of their metabolism or if it dissipates slower because they can grow collegan more easily? Which is it? I'm very scared and anyone who could help me by answering some of my questions would be much appreciated. I'm 25. Thanks

0.7 ml is a very small amount and probably it is the swelling thats freaking you out. Give it 5 days. It will take about 6 months for the radiesse to be gone.
Don't worry, you'll be just (more)
