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
"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
"I absolutely love Dr. Mentz. He did my septum many years ago and the bone in my nose fractured like an egg. It was extremely thin. This has happened only once before in his career. He reconstructed my nose and it came out wonderfully. I also had a breast reduction. I balanced it to my body type, and ten years later I still have a good shape. I absolutely trust his aesthetics. He has a wonderful eye, and desire to do beautiful work on every patient. My experiences with him have always been exceptional, and I have extreme confidence in his work. His education speaks volumes about his knowledge."- Anonymous / RateMDs / Feb 25, 2019
"I had a wonderful experience today undergoing my #rhinoplasty and #septoplasty I had the best and most caring doctor along with the help of his wonderful team! I cannot thank Dr. Mentz enough for all he did. I will be forever grateful!"- A.C. / Yelp / Aug 04, 2020
"He is Excellent & professional surgeon."- S.H. / Healthgrades / May 03, 2020
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.
