Fixing IR hot spots with Local Adjustments.

I dabble in IR photography, and the bane of the IR jock is the dreaded Hot Spot. This disease varies with different lenses, the worst being primes when stopped down. I have started trying to minimize this effect using Local Adjustments, with a central Centrol Point, and then varying the exposure, contrast, saturation and Clearview slides. Anyone else tried this?
I can post before/after shots if needed.
