Botox and Dysport as a preventive treatment in Elk Grove, CA

Avoid wrinkles with Botox treatment in Elk Grove, CA

Neuromodulators have been used aesthetically in this country for more than a decade. Botox Cosmetic received FDA approval in 2002, and Dysport (a similar formulation produced by a different manufacturer) followed in 2009.  Since that time, millions of procedures have been performed on men and women, mostly over age 40, to counteract existing signs of aging. Dr. Gerald Bock urges younger individuals to consider treatment to effectively prevent lines and wrinkles. He offers this “prejuvenation” technique at California Skin & Laser Center offices in Stockton, Lodi, and Elk Grove, CA.

About neuromodulators

Botox and Dysport are formulated with purified protein that interrupts signals from nerves that cause muscles to contract. Repeated many times a day, muscle contractions etch lines and wrinkles into skin. Injected at precise points on the face, neuromodulators relax underlying muscles, allowing rhytids to soften and smooth out.

Dr. Bock personally performs all neuromodulator injections applying years of training and experience, a deep understanding of facial anatomy, and innate artistry, for results that look natural. Injections sessions take less than an hour, with no numbing required. There is no downtime – you may return to work or other activities when you leave the office.

Avoid wrinkles with early Dysport and Botox treatment in Elk Grove, CA

A lifetime of concentrating, frowning, squinting, and pursing your lips eventually leads to:

  • Crow’s feet at corners of eyes
  • Lip lines radiating around the mouth
  • Horizontal furrows in the forehead
  • Vertical lines between the eyebrows
  • Bunny lines on the nose
  • Chin dimpling
  • Downturned corners of the mouth

With Dr. Bock’s skill and experience in minimally invasive injectable rejuvenation, these concerns can be improved.

Wouldn’t you rather prevent wrinkles from developing in the first place?

A carefully-designed program of neuromodulator injections, beginning in your 20s, helps to stop lines and wrinkles from forming. With dermal filling injections, chemical peels, and laser and light therapies, skin stays thick, taut, smooth, and looking youthful.
