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 the best of the best! His skill and artistry is second to none. He is by far, the most caring doctor I've met, with safety Top priority. His office staff is just as kind and professional. After losing a great deal of weight, I had a lot of extra and loose skin. Even with Bootcamp 5 days a week and spin class, I was disappointed and embarrassed with my body, especially naked. Dr. Mentz did my lower face and neck In January. I can't, nor can anyone else see where the incisions were and it looks just as if I've aged very well. A month ago, Dr. Mentz did extensive body work. It hasn't even all settled. I'm still swollen, but I'm beyond thrilled. My body is already so much improved and I look so much better! My incisions are straight and low on my lower body. The part where tape is off, I'm amazed at my healing already. My scarring is going to be unnoticeable. My breasts are now perfect. I got improvement, in places I wasn't even expecting, nor do I know how Dr. Mentz pulled it off. Needless to say, I'm over the moon! I can't wait until I'm released to exercise and hit the level of fitness I was going into surgery. In surgeon shopping, Dr. Mentz is pricey, but with him, you get what you pay for. He is worth every penny. You can't go wrong with him as your surgeon. Dr. Mentz delivers incredible results!"- J.G. / Google / Dec 28, 2016

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?@headingTag>
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.
