Why did my filler only last 5 months?

I am extremely upset that my $1,100 worth of Radiesse only lasted 5 months. It made a dramatic difference and I got compliments all the time and now I am extremely disappointed that it didn't last longer. I thought it would last at least 10-12 months. I have had Restalyne and it lasted much longer and was a lot less than the Radiesse. I explained my predicament to a doctor friend of mine and he said that he attended a seminar on dermal fillers and when the Rep asked how many doctors cut it 1/1 only a few raised their hand. When asked how many cut it 2/1 about 1/3 of the room raised their hand and finally when asked who cut it 3/1 most of the doctors in the room raised their hand. Shame on them for cheating their patients because I will NEVER use the doctor that I went to again. When I called and told them what happened they said I was welcome to come back and purchase another syringe at $100 less than what I paid. What a deal - NOT!!! I guess because there seems to be no regulations regarding cosmetic fillers the doctors can rip us off all they want.
