Like most other cosmetic fillers, Radiesse provides the instant benefit of filling in facial folds, lines, and depressions. However, it goes a step further by increasing the skin’s valuable collagen supply, the component which gives the skin its youthful fullness. Radiesse is a calcium hydroxyapatite-based product that can produce results for up to a year or longer. Radiesse has the added benefit of stimulating the skin’s natural collagen, a key protein which provides the skin with strength and elasticity. At his Houston MedSpa, triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Henry Mentz offers Radiesse injectable wrinkle filler treatments for patients who want long-lasting relief from wrinkles and volume loss.
"Dr. Mentz is nothing short of a magician. I went to him for an abdominoplasty in November of 2015 and his work has been life changing. His "bedside manner" is equal to his skill. I did not, for one moment, feel spoken down to or intimidated by his brilliance. He was kind, professional and has a great sense of humor. This man is an artist."- J.R. / Facebook / Aug 16, 2017

Radiesse is injected in the needed areas with a very fine needle, which causes minimal discomfort for most patients, but Radiesse can be mixed with a light anesthetic, like lidocaine, to make the procedure more comfortable. The results of Radiesse are usually seen immediately after the injection, but the appearance of the skin will continue to improve over time and with repeated treatments as more collagen is produced.

Radiesse Vs. Other Fillers?
Radiesse is unique because it is the only dermal filler approved by the FDA that is made with calcium-based microspheres instead of hyaluronic acid. The calcium hydroxyapatite base of Radiesse provides longer lasting results while improving the overall health of the skin.
Some patients may experience some mild, short-term side effects from their Radiesse treatment, including bruising, redness, swelling, discomfort, and itching. If you are concerned by any side effects or they last longer than 1 week, please contact our office for more information.
Patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after their Radiesse treatment, however, it is recommended that patients avoid touching the treated area to prevent unwanted spreading. Patients should also avoid makeup and sun/heat exposure for at least 24 hours.
