Part of the body's natural aging process is the slowing of collagen and elastin production in your epidermis. This leads to much more visible wrinkles, lines, and creases, as well as loose skin around the neck, jowls, and chin. To combat these signs of aging, Dr. Henry Mentz, a triple board-certified plastic surgeon, offers FaceTite. This revolutionary, nonsurgical procedure uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis to heat up and dislodge fat cells, causing your skin to tighten and allowing collagen to be created at a much faster rate. It is possible to enjoy a tighter, more youthful facial appearance that has fewer wrinkles without the invasiveness and recovery period associated with lifting operations. We invite you to schedule an appointment in our Houston, TX practice to learn more about FaceTite and its advantages.
"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

"Full Facelift - I have to give Dr Mentz 5 stars and would give him and his staff more if there were more stars. I interview 5 other plastic surgeons before deciding on Dr M.

This cosmetic therapy utilizes a minimally invasive process that involves inserting a tiny cannula under your skin while using local anesthesia. Once the cannula is placed, the temperature will be controlled and monitored through internal and external thermometers to make sure the heat remains at a comfortable temperature. The radiofrequency power that the FaceTite device releases will be effective in disrupting fat cells and will cause the skin to contract, leading to an increase in collagen production. Sessions typically last around 45 minutes per treated area.
What to Expect
After a FaceTite treatment, you will be advised to return home to rest and relax for the remainder of the day wearing a compression garment. You will be able to go back to your daily routine by the following day. It might take approximately three days for any redness or swelling to fade. Strenuous exercises and activities should be avoided for approximately two weeks after the treatment. Patients will normally notice some visible results directly after their FaceTite treatment. However, because the procedure involves stimulating the collagen growth process, you will notice more gradual improvements at around 3 – 8 weeks afterward. Your results will be long-lasting should you maintain a stable weight following your treatment.
