Inconsistent Radiesse Results?

I had several Radiesse treatments in upper cheeks and nasolabial folds in a past with a success. However, my latest injections in Nov/08 did not yield the same result and also did not last long.

Is it possible because it was mixed with local anesthetic? All the other variables are the same (great injector,and so on).

You May Be Right About the Local Anesthetic

I have also noticed that including local anesthetic with our Radiesse may influence the extent of our correction.  We no longer include local anesthesia as part of our injection.
