It Can Vary: The duration of novocaine (lidocaine) local anesthesia can vary from individual to individual, depending upon the specific concentration of the local anesthetic, amount injected, location injected, whether or not epinephrine (its concentration) is in the local anesthetic, as well as any pre-existing systemic diseases that can affect the metabolism of the local anesthetic.
