BOTOX Cosmetic Overview
BOTOX Cosmetic smoothes out the smile lines that form around the eyes. BOTOX also greatly diminishes the lines that form between the eyebrows and across the forehead to restore a more refreshed appearance to these areas. BOTOX injections work by gently inhibiting the muscle movement that leads to creasing of the skin’s surface. At the Houston MedSpa of triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Henry Mentz, our aesthetic specialists provide just enough treatment to soften the muscle movement so that the skin can smooth out, without giving you a “frozen look.”
"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
"Dr. Mentz and his staff are the best! I have been a patient of Dr. Mentz for about 15 years now and will continue to use his facility because there are many different services available. I am almost 71 years old and people always tell me that I look so much younger than my age. Thank you Dr. Mentz Janet L."- J.L. / Yelp / Feb 27, 2020
"I was a client of his 25 years ago when he did my nose and a bit of lipo. I have thoroughly enjoyed my nose after all these years. It was a tricky surgery, as I had broken it before in a riding accident. Now, 25 years later, I am going back to fix my breasts. I can't say enough good things about him; Many of my friends and clients went to have their surgeries with him after seeing my results and they had no problems."- L.W. / Yelp / Feb 03, 2020
"This Dr and staff are awesome. The offices and care are all first class."- M.N. / Facebook / Dec 21, 2019
"Dr Mentz is an incredibly talented and gracious doctor! With Wonderful bedside manner! He was able to work magic with a rhinoplasty revision from the previous botched nose job I had received from a doctor before him. My nose looks better than it ever has!! He also did a breast augmentation. Upsizing my 10 yr old implants from saline to silicone and a larger implant. And I finally have the breasts I always wanted!! And a testament to his generosity and commitment to perfection, originally I had a smaller implant chosen and after the original surgery was not happy with the size after all. Dr Mentz was kind enough to allow me to go back under the knife only a couple of days after the initial surgery and obtain the larger implants I desired...FREE OF CHARGE!! Only charging me for the price of the implants. His compassion and understanding made me feel like he really cares and his commitment to perfection rivals my own I am about to have a Brazilian butt lift done with him in a month or two and I am so excited!! Because I know what a talented doctor he is!! I would not entrust my body or face to another doctor EVER AGAIN! If your looking for your "happily ever after", look no further! Thank you again Dr Mentz!! For making me feel (and look) whole again!!"- C.B. / Yelp / Oct 03, 2019
BOTOX Cosmetic Procedure Technique
The overused and repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting are one of the causes of frown lines and crow’s feet, also called dynamic wrinkles. Your provider will inject these muscles with Neuromodulator to minimize muscle activity. You will notice results within 1-2 days. The effects typically wear off in 4-5 months, but you can schedule re-injections to maintain your results.

What is BOTOX?
Neuromodulator Cosmetic is an FDA-approved treatment that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet in adults. Neuromodulator contains small amounts of a highly purified protein. The safety and efficacy of Neuromodulator Cosmetic have been evaluated in both Allergan sponsored clinical trials and 417 peer-reviewed articles in medical journals.
Following the treatment, you can resume your daily activities. Your provider may give you specific aftercare instructions. It is best if you don’t touch your face for the rest of the day to avoid spreading the injection to unwanted areas. It is also best to keep your head elevated by sleeping propped up on pillows.
