Storing Radiesse Mixed With Lidocaine OK?
Hello, Can any of you fine doctors tell me why once calcium hydroxylapateite (Radiesse) filler is mixed with lidocaine, ALL of it must be used up? I know that some of the hyaluronic fillers come premixed with lido (powder form) and are fine to store but I've heard this is not the case with Radiesse. Is there some chemical change that occurs if the two are stored together in a syringe for a period of time? Or is it just the added contamination concern with in-office mixing?
