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
"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

"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
FaceTite™ Procedure Technique
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 with FaceTite™
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.
FaceTite™ Frequently Asked Questions
Who is a candidate for FaceTite?
FaceTite is normally used to treat smaller, more delicate areas, such as the lines that form around your mouth and below the eyes in addition to the loose skin on the chin and neck region. You are an ideal candidate for this treatment if you are experiencing classic signs of aging and wish for a boost in collagen production for tighter skin.
How much does the treatment cost?
